Aurora Gives You Christmas and New Year's Discount on Mekong Delta

Aurora is pleased to announce a 10 percent discount on the Ho Chi Minh/Mekong Delta package which is available for reservations from now until the end of Dec.

Hanoi, Vietnam, November 18, 2009 --( Effective immediately and through December 31st, Aurora Travel is pleased to announce a 10% discount on its 'Free and Easy' - Ho Chi Minh City/Mekong Delta Cruise, prompted by overwhelming satisfaction in feedback from customers who have embarked on the cruise.

It is not too late to make plans for a very special year end celebration. Aurora Travel has created a special cruise in the verdant and fertile area of the Mekong Delta. This languorous water journey is coupled with a stay in southern Vietnam most vibrant city, Ho Chi Minh City.

The Mekong River takes its course through six countries from its starting point in the Tibetan plateau; it is essential to the life and survival of millions of people. It is not without its charm, and Aurora Travel has partnered with 'Mekong Eyes', the perfect holiday vessel to cruise the Delta. It is built in the traditional Chinese style but offers all modern comforts and amenities. Built from an old rice barge with the highest quality wood, it has been embellished and decorated from local artisans.

Guests will avail themselves of one of fifteen lavishly furnished twin and double rooms; each room has a private bath with shower and hot water, wardrobe, air-conditioning and fan. The rooms are well insulated against climate and sound, and all offer a fantastic panoramic view of the river. Additionally, there is a large dining room on board in the lower deck, and a stylish upper-deck inside sitting lounge and an open sitting area and sun deck on the top.

The four-day "free and easy" special starts in Ho Chi Minh City where guests will spend the night at the luxurious Caravelle Hotel in the heart of District One. Once there, there will be time to shop 'till you drop' or explore the heart of the city on foot. The next day will take visitors to a floating market in either Can Tho or Cai Be, followed by boarding the cruise vessel and served a sumptuous lunch on board.

The cruise will afford visitors a bird's eye view of life on the Mekong, its colorful people, its fruit orchards and the endless string of barges and boats which ply the waters of this life sustaining river every day. Relaxing is a must!

The overnight stay on the "Mekong Eyes" will have all the comforts of international standard hotels. The next morning, after breakfast, guests will be transferred to a sampan to enable them to visit one of the busiest floating markets of the region. There they will be able to interact with vendors, marvel at the sheer variety and abundance of fruits and vegetables and other edibles. A visit to a handmade candy factory is also in the package. The third night will be spent back at the Caravelle Hotel.

The last day is "free and easy" for shopping around town.
