Q – We are previous river boat guests of AMA and Gate 1. Now, we are looking to spend a bit more money to do something a little more exotic than Europe. We are looking at AMA’s Africa and Vietnam programs, each of which we know from reading RiverBoatRatings you rate quite highly. But as long as we are in excellent health, we are really wanting something even more exotic for our next trip – so the question: What is the most exotic destination you can reach on a river boat vacation?
A – Most exotic is a challenge but our internal polling leads us to suggest you look at Pandaw’s seven-night itineraries into the center of the Borneo rainforest along the upper Kapuas River. Sure there are tribal villages some memorable shrines, and a few headhunters, but how many river cruise itineraries include a rehab center for orangutans?
