The RV Samantha is the finest vessel cruising the river, housing guests in finely decorated suites, all with private balconies and a slew of luxury amenities. As the boat coasts past ancient Buddhist monuments and attractive ex-British colonial towns, passengers can peer out for a glimpse of the river's eponymous dolphin for a truly magical experience.

There’s a Fitness Centre onboard to counter all the indulgence, and the onshore excursions provide fascinating insights into one of the world’s most exotic and romantic destinations.
