The Aqua Mekong brings to the Mekong River a level of elegance and glamour not seen on the river since Catherine Deneuve starred in the 1992 movie, Indochine.  Brainchild of Italian-American entrepreneur, Francesco Galli Zugaro, the Aqua Mekong is the Asian launch vessel of the fleet that first debuted on the Peruvian Amazon in 2008.

“The introduction of the Aqua Amazon (and later the Aria Amazon) was a game changer on the Amazon six years ago,” says Galli Zugaro, “bringing an unprecedented level of luxury, cuisine, service and experiential touring to the world’s longest river; and the Aqua Mekong will do the same for the Mekong.”
