Timeless Wonders of Vietnam, Cambodia & the Mekong
The wedge of Southeast Asia occupied by Vietnam and Cambodia is a place of great contrasts. Few fortunate travelers get an authentic taste of alluring Vietnam and exotic Cambodia like this.

You’ll experience the ancient and modern, from floating river markets and the UNESCO-designated Angkor Wat temples to the vibrant, ever-changing Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. For lovers of a more adventurous, expedition-style cruise, this is ideal!
Ancient, modern. Rural, urban. Forested mountains, arable plains.

Throughout your journey, enjoy a plethora of authentic experiences. Visit colorful Vietnamese floating kets and homes by way of a traditional sampan. Take a remork (motorcycle rickshaw) ride through Phnom Penh, with its wide boulevards and French-infused architecture. Receive a water blessing from local monks while at a beautifully situated temple complex with incredible views of the Mekong. Explore Cambodia’s UNESCO-designated Angkor Wat temple complex. Be treated to a traditional Apsara dance performance during dinner in Siem Reap.
