March 2017 - AmaDara to River Cruises - China/Asia
We had a wonderful time on our Mekong River cruise, and AMA Waterways was just great. We had taken a Viking last year to China and this one was even better than Viking. We enjoyed the luxury but at the same time, the destinations were very interesting. The crew was very responsive, warm, and greeting all the time. This trip can be a bit tiring if you are not prepared for that. There are a lot of things to see and you need to be able to do a lot of walking, and climbing if you want to experience it the most. We loved it, and we met some very memorable friends on this trip that we will keep in touch with forever. Overall, unless you have an aversion to seeing Vietnam, this is a beautiful place, and the people are very welcoming. 64% of the population is 35 years or younger, and they do not like their government either. Hopefully one day they will be more free, but they are making great strides in their well being. Cambodia was also very interesting, and they are having more issues of rebuilding but are also improving. Just a great trip!
