Wendy Wu, the Tibetan-born Chinese-Australian living in London who launched Wendy Wu Tours in Sydney in 1994 when she took her first group of Australians to China, will build a Mekong River ship in partnership with Vietnam’s Thien Minh Group.

Cruises aboard the 35-cabin, four-star Victoria Mekong will go on sale later this year and the vessel will commence operations in 2020. 

'Control of our own destiny'

‘It will give us control of our own destiny,’ said Wu, who has offices in the UK, US and Australasia and operates tours throughout Asia.

Victoria Mekong will sail between Vietnam’s Mekong Delta and the Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh.

It will have a restaurant with open kitchen, swimming pool with pool bar and sun deck and a spa with massage service.

Wu said the vessel will offer excellent value for money.
