Great Waterways of the World | Lonely Planet

Children swimming – Song River, Vang Vieng (c) Lonely Planet

Traditionally, along with the sea, rivers and canals were the main means of transporting goods, so history and culture is ripe along the banks of the world’s rivers. Using these ancient highways to explore a destination is a quieter and more relaxing affair than the usual transport of planes, trains and automobiles. Here are some of the finest waterways of the world to float down or up.

If you’re anything like me, seeing a body of water would automatically change your mood and frame of mind.  There is something about waterways that delights my senses and gives me a sense of awe.  From the River Avon along Bath, to Darling Harbour in Sydney, to San Francisco Bay – the sight of water brings a smile to my face whenever I travel.  How about you?
