Can you name this shade of green? In case you want to go see it for yourself, here's a deal: #SailWithAqua #AquaExpeditions #AquaMekong #cruise #Mekong 展开

Did you know that Mindfulness has its roots in Buddhist Vipassana ('insight') meditation? According to our guides, these monks are training to become highly aware of every single moment and accept reality without judgement. If all these sounds abstract to you, follow us to the Vipassana Dhura Buddhist Meditation Center on an #AquaMekong cruise. Perhaps we can learn something together. www.luxetravel.com.hk #AquaExpeditions #Mekong
It's been almost 7 years since we started the Taricaya Turtle Project with Pacaya Samiria National Park in the Peruvian Amazon to reverse the population decline of the yellow-spotted Amazon turtle (taricaya) due to natural predators and illegal egg poaching. This World Wildlife Day (3/3), we thank our guests aboard the Aria Amazon who continue to do their part in preserving a vulnerable species. #AquaExpeditions...

Brought to you by the river cruise line that is turning heads across the world, #AquaExpeditions is your most idyllic vacation yet. Cruise in the ultimate luxury, relax in comfort and be spellbound by what floats by you as you immerse yourself in a cruise experience that goes beyond all other river cruise journeys.
Learn from Naturalist Guide, George Davila, about the wildlife conservation program launched by #AquaExpeditions to protect endangered yellow spotted river turtles from the #PeruvianAmazon Rainforest. Nests were set up for breeding turtles with eggs hatched and juvenile turtles were then released into local waterways. Watch here: www.luxetravel.com.hk
"The 16-suite luxury cruiser plies the storied river and its black-water tributaries on three-, four-, and seven-night journeys filled with wildlife sightings, on-land adventures, and cultural interactions. Passengers head out twice daily on skiffs to explore this otherwise inaccessible region of Peru, where you can kayak with pink dolphins, hike in search of anacondas and howler monkeys, fish for piranhas, and, if you’re feeling particularly brave, go for a very quick swim in the Amazon."
