Vietnam named “Best River Cruise Destination in Asia in 2021”
Cruising along the rivers in Vietnam could be an interesting way for travelers to discover the hidden beauty of the country after the pandemic.
Vietnam has just been named as “Asia’s Best River Cruise Destination 2021” at this year’s World Cruise Awards. The country surpassed four other nominees including Cambodia, China, Laos and Thailand to have won the title by the World Cruise Awards.

Meanwhile, the Sadec Deck Suite - AmaDara Cruise, which offers water trips throughout the Mekong River in Vietnam and Cambodia, won the title of “Asia’s Best River Cruise Suite 2021.”
According to the river tour providers, culture and civilizations have flourished around great rivers throughout history, and the Mekong is no exception. Joining a cruise along the Mekong River is the best way to discover rich heritage and traditions enriched by 2,000 years of history of the countries in South Asia.
“Cruise along the Mekong through Cambodia and Vietnam would give travelers a chance to be transported back in time to another era, where the rhythms of the countryside move at a slower pace. It also allows them to have a fascinating glimpse into a traditional way of life,” they stated.

The results follow a year-long search for the world’s leading cruise brands. Votes were cast by cruise industry professionals and the public, with the nominee gaining the most votes in a category named as the winner.
As a sister event to World Travel Awards, the prestigious award is considered a global initiative to recognize and reward excellence in the cruise industry of the world.
Other winners in Asia included Singapore, who won the title of “Asia’s Best Cruise Destination 2021”; Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore was crowned Asia's Best Cruise Terminal 2021; and the Dream Cruise won the title of “Asia’ Best Cruise Line 2021”, among others.
