To be launched on August 31, Victoria Mekong will offer a new luxury travel experience in the Delta by December.
Victoria Mekong, the newest vessel built to cruise through the Mekong Delta, will be ceremonially launched on August 31 by a joint venture between the Thien Minh Group (TMG), one of Vietnam’s best travel and hospitality groups, and Wendy Wu Tours, the UK’s leading Asia tour specialist.
The major milestone will see the sleek 35-cabin vessel enter the water for the first time. Interior construction will continue for three more months before its journey to Can Tho Harbor, with an inaugural sailing date planned for December.
The brand-new four-star vessel will be one of the first to cruise out of Can Tho, the Mekong Delta’s largest city, offering a new luxury travel experience in the area.
Located three hours by road from Ho Chi Minh City, Can Tho is set to become one of Vietnam’s hottest destinations, with the launch of new flight routes over the summer between Can Tho International Airport and Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok. Vietnamese airlines already connect Can Tho to a host of Vietnamese destinations, including Hanoi, Da Nang, and the islands of Phu Quoc and Con Dao.
The launch of the Victoria Mekong is an important milestone for TMG and Wendy Wu Tours, which have set their sights on several similar products in the future to bring tourists the best possible travel experience enhanced by the highest standards of service.
Founded in 1994 and headquartered in Vietnam, TMG has grown tremendously from a boutique adventure tour operator into the largest privately-owned travel and hospitality group in Vietnam, with three main business lines: Hospitality (owning and operating Victoria Hotels & Resorts, ÊMM Hotels & Resorts, Emeraude Cruises, L’Azalée Cruises, and the Spice Viet Restaurant chain), Online Travel Agency (iVIVU.com), and Holiday Experiences (providing tour services under brands such as PEAK Vietnam as well as operating scenic and chartered flight services). Annually, the Group hosts over 200,000 hotel guests in its own hotels, handles over 1 million transactions on the iVIVU platform and takes approximately 500,000 tourists to Southeast Asia.
Meanwhile, with over 20 years of experience and with offices in London, Sydney, Auckland, Shanghai, and Xian, Wendy Wu Tours is recognized as the market leader in travel to China and Asia.
