Named after a 16th century Indian emperor, The Jahan’s striking design and excellent service make it the closest thing to a floating palace. Its 26 staterooms are elegantly adorned with Indian artworks and boast large, inviting beds fitted with the finest linens. Most enticing is the private balcony attached to each room, perfect for absorbing the passing Mekong views. To really relish in the royal splendour, The Jahan’s two Noble Suites offer an experience fit for an emperor. Both are commodious and fitted with private outdoor jacuzzis, differentiated only by their striking designs; The Taj suite exudes splendour with its fine Indian furniture while the Lord Byron Suite takes on a British-colonial theme.
The splendour is not reserved solely for the staterooms, however. The East India Club & Lounge is modelled on a British-Indian gentleman’s club, perfectly setting the scene for a signature “Mekong River” cocktail or fascinating presentation held by a local expert. On the terrace deck, the sparkling swimming pool and bar contribute towards a pleasantly laid-back atmosphere where you can take in the passing scenery. Even more relaxed is the Aspara Spa, where a wide range of aromatic oils guarantee the most indulgent massage or facial. In the evenings, tuck into delicious Asian, fusion and international cuisine before settling down for movie night. The barbecue gala dinner is a particular highlight, where you can sample the best cuts and freshest catches while you take in a traditional Aspara dance performance.
Away from the boat, the enchanting culture of Vietnam and Cambodia beckons. Explore bustling Phnom Penh, where the National Museum showcases ancient Khmer artefacts and lectures at the University of Phnom Penh provide a fascinating context to your adventures. Exhilarating tuk-tuk tours along the Mekong’s islands offer a fascinating glimpse into local life as you visit silk workshops and learn more about this intriguing trade. There is no finer place for cultural immersion than in some of the region’s more secluded villages, where you can meet local school children, explore Buddhist temples and watch farmers at work in the fields.
