Take things at a slower pace on a luxury, boutique cruise - this year’s biggest travel trend.

What do you think when someone says ‘cruise’? If the image that springs to mind is hundreds of silver-haired passengers packed onto an enormous vessel with nightly Michael Jackson tribute acts, think again.

Cruising has taken on a new, boutique slant. These small, stylish boats have a limited number of cabins and all the trappings of a luxury hotel: think pool decks and cocktails; large, comfortable beds that face a balcony on which to watch the world go by; onboard expert guides and naturalists; and stops along the journey where the only moored boat is yours.
Small ship cruising is the newest travel trend and the most elegant way to embrace slow travel. Climb on board in some of these destinations.
The Mekong River is the world’s 12th largest river, and flows from Tibet right through Southeast Asia, from Myanmar to Vietnam, where it opens up into the Mekong Delta and releases into the South China Sea. Between Saigon and Siem Reap, luxury boats meander through the waterways, passing rice paddies, floating markets where locals sell pineapples and fresh fish, and riverside villages that specialise in farming sugarcane and silk weaving.
When to go? May to August for the best river conditions, or November to April for low water, but less rain
