Luxury tour operator Cox & Kings has partnered with Vietnamese river cruise operator Heritage Line to add two new river cruise itineraries in Southeast Asia to its product mix.

The cruises take place on the Mekong River in Vietnam and Cambodia and on Myanmar's Irrawaddy River.

The new the 10-day Exploring Myanmar by Land & River itinerary takes place on Heritage Line's 46-passenger Anawrahta, which launched earlier this year. The itinerary will begin in Yangon and continue to Mandalay where passengers will board the Anawrahta for a four-night cruise along the Irrawaddy.

The new nine-day itinerary, Vietnam & Cambodia featuring Cruising the Mekong, begins in Siem Reap with a three-day guided experience of the Angkor Wat temple complex. After that, guests board Heritage Line's 52-passenger Jahan for a three-day sailing along the Mekong River to Vietnam's Mekong Delta. The journey ends in Ho Chi Minh City.

Passengers that book before Dec. 30, 2016 receive a complimentary cabin category upgrade on their Heritage Line cruise, a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine on board and a $100 shipboard credit as well as $250 per person (based on double occupancy) off the above mentioned itineraries.
