Asia is filled to the brim with famous rivers offering a good amount of scenery to spectators. As such, river boat rides are something that you should never miss the chance of having upon your visit on this particular continent. Recently, the ACM group organized a river boat safari trip on a handful of Asia’s most picturesque rivers and they are more than happy to share the experience to others.
You will find a number of the longest rivers in Asia. For instance, the Yangtze River found in China is considered to be is the longest river in Asia and the third-longest in the world making it widely recognized all over the world. It spans 6,300 km – 3,915 miles. Aside from the amazing scenery that it provides, Yangtze River also plays quite a large role in the history, culture and economy of China that is used for water, irrigation, sanitation, transportation, industry, boundary-marking and war for thousands of years.
Huang He River which is commonly known as the Yellow River is the third-longest river in Asia, and is the sixth-longest in the world at the estimated length of 5,464 km (3,395 mi) which is located in China as well. Is the Yellow River really yellow in color? Is indeed a common question asked by tourists and visitors and the answer to that question is a resounding yes! It is a breathtaking sight to behold and looks definitely much better in actual view compared to their pictures. The yellow color of the river is due to the wind-blown silt and sediment which picks up in its upper and middle course where the soil is easily eroded. The end result is a stunning and vibrant yellow hue.
The 12th longest river Mekong in Vietnam is considered to be the chief river of Southeast Asia with an estimated length of 4,350 km (2,703 mi). Here is where tourists will find ancient Khmer monuments at Angkor Wat as well as the prestigious French colonial capital of Phnom Penh. The highlight of the tour is definitely the visit to the floating markets of the Mekong delta where a lot of local produce are being sold on a regular day to day basis. It is indeed something out of the extraordinary and one will be tempted to buy some of their products out during their river boat cruise.
We’ve only barely scratch the surface and the Asian rivers we have showcased is just the tip of the iceberg. There is more left to be seen and it is good to hear that several groups today such as ACM Cultural Group have made access to river boat tours much easier, showcasing what you can look forward to upon your visit to the Asian continent.
