River cruises provide a window to the riches of Asia. From the Mekong in Vietnam and Cambodia to China’s storied Yangtze. India’s historic Ganges and Myanmar’s Ayeyarwady (also known as the Irrawaddy). They’re the stuff of legendary explorers, ancient peoples and nostalgic poems, like Kipling’s “Mandalay.”
