New Russian River Cruise

View from the walkway of the Volga Dream

View from the walkway

We were really excited to check out a new boutique river boat sailing between Moscow and St Petersburg on the Volga River recently. The Volga Dream provides an opportunity to visit the remote and secluded villages and towns that are dotted along the river, all while maintaining the style of a boutique hotel, which can be difficult to find in Russia.

The unique and detailed programme offers a revealing insight into the history and culture that makes Russia such a fascinating destination. Maximum passenger numbers of 109 mean that this is one of the most intimate and exclusive cruises on the entire river.

To find out about incorporating this fantastic river cruise into a tailor-made trip to Russia with Audley, call one of our specialists on 01993 838 230 or contact us online.

Song Saa launch Foundation Festive Appeal

Song Saa Private Island

Song Saa Private Island

The owners of Song Saa Private Island in Cambodia have just launched their Song Saa Foundation Festive Appeal, with the aim of raising in one month $25,000 (£15,300) for the Song Saa Foundation.

The Foundation is very close to the heart of owners Rory and Melita Hunter and central to what they are trying to achieve at Song Saa, with its focus on environmental sustainability, assorted wildlife projects (see my blog about how they saved animals in cruel zoo) but in particular, helping the local community of Prek Svay on the Koh Rong archipelago.

Please take a few minutes to find out more about the appeal by viewing the video above.
