Avalon Waterways unveils HCMC-Siem Reap river cruise plan

US river cruise line Avalon Waterways
will operate a vessel from Ho Chi Minh City to Cambodia’s Siem Reap on
Mekong River starting in 2012, according to USA Today.

Steve Born, Avalon Waterways marketing
chief, told the newspaper Monday that the company is building the Avalon
Angkor vessel capable of carrying 32 passengers to sail the Mekong
River next year.
The company plans to combine a
seven-night sailing on the Mekong River with hotel stays in Ho Chi Minh
City and Siem Reap. The total package will last nearly two weeks.
Patrick Clark, Avalon Waterways managing
director, said the company’s Mekong trips will be different from those
operated by several other lines because it is a smaller vessel.
He said large ships of other competitors
are not as flexible as the Avalon Angkor, which can sail from the center
of HCMC all the way to Siem Reap.
Clark added that the villages and markets
along the river, local foods and the historical sites are some of the
“enchanting experiences” of the cruise in the unspoiled region.
