It’s a personal devotion

John Tue Nguyen – Founder of Heritage Line

 

My favourite childhood memories are of the river life alongside the Perfume River in the imperial city of Hue. These formative years nurtured a deep connection to my homeland’s history, culture and heritage. I was resolute in my desire to share the unique cultural heritage of Southeast Asia with the rest of the world. It was this connection, and unquestionably my riverside upbringing, that compelled me to develop Heritage Line – a consummate collection of luxurious waterway faring vessels.

Emulating the splendour of river journeys from a bygone era, I built Heritage Line’s Jayavarman, our fi rst vessel, to sail on the mighty Mekong. Named after the great king of the Khmer Empire, Jayavarman’s style was defined by interweaving a love of art, cultural heritage, local life and tradition with this sacred river. The fleet was born, and today we sail with a wonderful collection of the most impeccable ships showcased in this brochure.

As I believe that every river has a story to tell, we will continue to explore the tantalizing waterways of Southeast Asia while designing impeccable vessels to journey this exotic part of the world in style. I look forward to welcoming you aboard for a truly exceptional experience.
