Does your family love to choose unique destinations for family vacations? Maybe you have all decided you don’t want to visit France, the Grand Canyon, or Disney World this year. If that is the case, maybe a unique river cruise destination should be at the top of your list! There are a few unique destinations you can visit while cruising on some of the best rivers in the world. I could go on and on about all the memories you can make during one of these family vacations. However, it is probably best to share the unique destinations you should be considering for this year’s vacation!
The Zambezi flows through numerous African destinations. This is why so many river cruises can be found on this stretch of the river.
If you have always wanted to see parts of Africa up close, a river cruise is your best option. The wonders of Chobe National Park will no longer be a mystery to your family. Of course, you won’t want to miss out on the sights of Victoria Falls. You will be as close as you can possibly be to the edge of these falls without ever being in danger of going over. The only downside is you won’t see the actual falls from the ship. Only the rushing water leads to those falls.
A few destinations you may get to experience on an African river cruise include Zambia, Botswana, Namibia, and Zimbabwe.
A river cruise in Egypt will take you down, or up, the Nile River. I recommend spending a little time in the bustling city of Cairo before boarding the ship and traveling to Aswan. This area is full of wonderful villages, temples, and museums.
You can choose the excursions that interest your family the most. However, I suggest making sure the Animalia Museum and Sharia-as-Souq are on your list of things to do.
Asia is one of the best continents for river cruising. Especially if your family is interested in downtime as well as thrilling adventures. If that is what you are searching for during your next family vacation, let me suggest a river cruise in Cambodia.
Taking a river cruise along the Mekong is the perfect way to explore Cambodia. Your family can experience the local traditions in Siem Reap. Explore the temples of Angkor. Wander through bustling markets. Visit a floating village on Tonle Sap Lake.
There is no limit to what you can do each day as you take a river cruise along the shores of Cambodia.
You can also sail down the Mekong River to visit different destinations in Vietnam. These river cruises usually begin in Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City. It is dependent on the direction your family is cruising. During this family adventure, you will find yourself exploring spectacular towns and villages like Tan Chau, Sa Dec, and Cai Be. Visiting sacred sites will be possible in many of these areas.
While a river cruise in Vietnam is amazing, I prefer to make sure I see parts of Laos and Cambodia at the same time. I mean, if you are over in that part of the world, you might as well see as much as possible!
Taking a river cruise on the Yangtze River guarantees a stop in the fascinating city of Chongqing. While there are other destinations you will visit on this family-friendly river cruise, this is the city that will really capture your attention.
Imagine spending time with the Giant Pandas at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding. Explore the Three Gorges. Hike through the Wulong Karst Geological Park. Indulge in all the culinary delights China has to offer. Including the spicy hot pot. You may even be interested in doing a little shopping at Ciqikou Old Town. It is one of the best places to buy pastries, as well as porcelain pieces.
Exploring South America by ship is as easy as sailing along the Amazon River. This majestic waterway begins in Peru and flows all the way to the Atlantic. All around the Amazon River is an area known as The Amazon. It is a massive rainforest filled with animals and plants.
Time on an Amazon river cruise can be spent in so many ways. Take a tour of Kenko and the Temple of Sacsayhuaman. Be amazed at the top of Machu Picchu. Check out the Nazca Lines. Oh, and don’t forget to keep an eye out for the pink dolphins in the water. Your family will even have a chance to swim with them during your river cruise adventure.
These are a few unique river cruise destinations you should consider for your next family vacation. Each destination offers fabulous attractions, sights, and activities to keep your family intrigued for hours. Let me help your family make memories by planning a fascinating river cruise to your top destination. I guarantee the result will be a family vacation you never forget!
