Overseas Adventure Travel, the leader in small group travel on the road less traveled, today announced its newest Small Ship Adventure for 2020: a cruise along the Mekong River through Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand.
Winding its way from the foothills of Tibet to the South China Sea, the Mekong River is the lifeblood of Southeast Asia. Travelers follow the Mekong, with its colorful floating markets, traditional villages, and remnants of a French Colonial past dotting its banks, for seven nights aboard a 68-passenger vessel, exclusively chartered by O.A.T. small groups of 20-25 (average of 22). This adventure is anchored by hotel stays in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) and Bangkok.
O.A.T. offers small group, immersive adventures for travelers aged 50 and older. With its small-scale travel philosophy, O.A.T. limits groups to 8-16 travelers on land and 20-25 on average by sea. Each group is led by a local Trip Experience leader who can offer travelers insider knowledge.
“The Mekong River is a brand new destination for our Small Ships Adventures,” said Brian Fitzgerald, Chief Operating Officer of O.A.T. “The intimate atmosphere of a small ship cruise together with the opportunity to meet the people of Southeast Asia make this adventure a stand-out experience for travelers.”
