Red River Delta Cruises (Vietnam)
Coursing through Northern Vietnam, including the capital Hanoi and a vast, pancake-flat delta, the legendary Red River has been the lifeblood of this rice-farming region and dreamy inspiration for poets and artists for centuries.
Discover this lesser-traveled waterway on a Red River cruise aboard a pioneering boutique vessel that plies the terracotta-hued silt waters that give the river its name. Slowly meander through the Red River Delta in the heart of Vietnam’s more traditional north, whose timeless countryside is filled with tranquil farming communities and jade-green paddy fields. This captivating region is home to a glut of centuries-old craft villages, where the unique art form of water puppetry was born, and mysterious ancient pagodas that rarely receive visitors – all of which can be experienced on a fascinating Red River delta cruise.
