River cruising vacations

Ideal for those who want to see landscapes from a fresh perspective, river cruising vacations often take you into remote spots, mooring alongside fishing villages, ancient temples or stretches of rainforest where roads donít reach. As you cruise, you get to learn about life on and offer the river banks Ė both human and otherwise. Cruises are also often on traditional houseboats, for example the dahabiya on the Nile or the famous rice barges of India.
