river cruises

Note: "River" category includes canals and backwaters (they share similar qualities). However, I did not include the Panama Canal on this list because it's mostly a sea cruise.

my tips on a river cruise.

Nile

  Luxor and Aswan in Egypt. Nile River cruises showcase pharaonic temples and tombs.

Yangtze

  Chonqing and Yichiang in China. Yangtze River cruises feature stunning landscapes and  fascinating shore excursions.

Kerala Backwaters

  Kottayam and Alleypey in southern India. Kerala backwater cruises boast tropical palm-fringed waterscapes.

Rhine

  Koblenz and Rudesheim/Bingen in Germany. Picturesque medieval castles and villages are the stars.

Mekong

  Saigon and Angkor Wat and between Luang Prabang and the Golden Triangle. Mekong River cruises are adventures.
