The Cruise that will make you Miss Saigon

Lying between the contradictions that are vibrant Vietnam and calming Cambodia is the river Mekong, a huge waterway winding its way through the busy ports and local villages to the open countryside, allowing those visiting on their cruise travel insurance an unrivalled view of the country.

Vietnam and Cambodia are not common destinations historically for those holidaying on their over 65 travel insurance but river cruises offer a way to see the country without sacrificing creature comforts. Passengers will be provided with a variety of vessels to journey around, from majestic riverboats to intimate backwater rafts, allowing access to tribal villages and local craft demonstrations such as weaving and fishing.

Passengers who are experienced in cruise travel insurance holidays will find Vietnam and Cambodia a new experience, with the opportunity to see far more of the countryside and communities than normally available on a large ship.

Passengers will pass the holy twin mountains of Phnom Pros and Phnom Srey, the Cambodian capital Phnom Penh as well as the unforgettable city of Saigon.

The region has a number of historical venues popular with visitors, including Notre Dame Cathedral, La Providence (a French monastery) as well as the chance of a sobering visit to the notorious Killing Fields. For those keen to experience local culture, the Pandaw boats provide holidaymakers a unique insight into Cambodian and Vietnamese life.

There are a variety of additional excursions available such as an evening cruise along the Saigon River as well as an afternoon trip to the claustrophobic Cu Chi tunnels. Before undertaking any trips it may be worthwhile checking with the over 65 travel insurance provider that the policy covers the intended activity.

With such an enchanting blend of old and new, the exotic sights and sounds and the glimpse of an entirely different way of life, a trip along the Mekong is certain to leave many wishing they could stay just that bit longer.
