Timeless Wonders of Vietnam, Cambodia & the Mekong
The wedge of southeast Asia occupied by Vietnam and Cambodia is a place of delightful contrasts. From the lively and ever-changing cities of Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, and Phnom Penh, to the floating villages of the Mekong, where life is still lived much like it was centuries ago, you’ll be treated to an up-close view of two amazing countries.
Running the gamut from ancient to modern, rural to urban, forested mountains to arable plains, Vietnam and Cambodia truly have something to delight every traveler’s desire. Modern- history buffs will find fascinating and terrifying remnants of the ravages of war, from the Cu Chi Tunnels in Ho Chi Minh City to the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek. Nature enthusiasts will revel in the singular beauty of the Mekong. And the adventuresome will delight in Cambodia’s UNESCO-designated Angkor Wat temple complex, including the jungle-covered Ta Prohm.
Throughout your journey, enjoy a plethora of authentic experiences. Visit colorful Vietnamese floating markets and homes by way of a traditional sampan. Take a cyclo 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. Be treated to a traditional Apsara dance performance during dinner in Siem Reap. These experiences and more offer you a chance to discover the sights, the sounds, and the tastes of two countries joined by one river.
