From Vietnam to Myanmar

In Ho Chi Minh, you will board the L’Austral for unexceptional 13-day cruise that will take you to 5 countries!

From this city founded in the 17th century and formerly known as Saigon, you will reach the Mekong, a mythical river on which small, colourful boats throng on market days.

The ship will call in Singapore. You will be seduced by the unique multicultural atmosphere of this city-State on the edges of the Orient, once a British trading settlement.

You will sail to Malaysia and Thailand, discovering Malacca. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the city will reveal to you the many vestiges of the period of Dutch rule.

Lastly, the L’Austral will sail to Myanmar. You will visit Yangon (Rangoon), the nation’s former capital, home to the magnificent Shwedagon Pagoda, the country’s most revered religious shrine.

From Vietnam to Myanmar itinerary:

show reverse itinerary
Days 1 - 3 - Ho Chi Minh City
Located near the Mekong delta, Ho Chi Minh-Ville is the largest city in Vietnam. It is both the historic heart and economic hub. Formerly Saigon, the city is an imposing avant-guard metropolis. You can admire its famous central post office and its emblematic Reunification Palace. From 95 years of French presence, the city has kept some remarkable monuments, like the Cathédrale Notre-Dame with its neo-Gothic façade built in 19th century red brick. You’ll succumb to the magic of this hectic city, where everything is about contrast, like the very brightly-coloured district of Cholon, Saigon’s “Chinatown”.
Day 4 - At sea
Days 5 - 6 - Singapore
Nicknamed “the garden city”, Singapore stretches along the southern coast of Malaysia. You’ll be amazed by the incredible vitality of this city-state in Marina Bay. Not far from here, the historical centre offers an unusual mix of neoclassical buildings and contemporary tower blocks. Bedecked with plant sculptures, the pavements of Orchard Road are also brimming with commercial shopping malls. The colourful markets of China Town and Little India provide an opportunity for a bite to eat in a Hawker Center - a snack bar in one of the city’s typical streets.
Day 7 - Malacca (Malaysia)
Day 8 - Port Klang (Malaysia)
Day 9 - Penang (Malaysia)
Day 10 - Phang Nga (Thailand)
Day 11 - At sea
Days 12 & 13 - Yangon (Myanmar)

Map for From Vietnam to Myanmar
L'Austral, the ship servicing From Vietnam to Myanmar

L'Austral

Luxury Expedition / Cruise Ship

This superb mega-yacht with 132 cabins is the result of the expertise of the Italian Fincantieri shipyard and French sophistication, as interpreted by designer Jean-Philippe Nuel. L'Austral has a unique atmosphere, a subtle blend of luxury, intimacy and well-being.

A sleek silhouette softened by elegantly smooth contours and large, arched windows opening up to the sea and the light: so many features come together to give L’Austral her distinctive shape. Precious materials, discreet elegance and a perfect balance between chic and casual, combine to make you feel as if you are on your own private yacht. A design blending tradition and innovation, where a nautical mood has been subtly recreated. Precious materials in smoothing neutral tones are brought to life with splashes of cheerful reds. So many personal touches create the spirit of a “private yacht”.

Everything has been done to preserve the independence of each guest to suit their personal tastes: lounges for lectures and shows, a spa in partnership with Sothys™, but also more intimate spaces such as the library and internet corner. Comfortable cabins, nearly all with private balcony, are available for families either as triples or as communicating cabins. There is also a games area with Wii™ consoles, children’s menus, and a baby-sitting service. Just as if you were on a private yacht, your time is your own to do as you please.
