Your relaxing, seven-night cruise will take you on a fascinating journey through the beautiful countryside of Vietnam and Cambodia. Beginning in the magnificent Mekong Delta and continuing upstream to conclude near Cambodia's great Tonle Sap Lake, this cruise is a fabulous introduction to both the well-known sights and the rarely visited rural areas of the Indochinese region.

Along the way you will have plenty of time to kick back and observe the stunning scenery pass you by, watching daily life as it unfolds on the riverbanks from day to day. Your vessel will also make frequent stops to allow you to disembark to visit floating markets, remote villages, ancient temples and overgrown jungle.

Your boat will stop for a full day of exploration in Phnom Penh, where you will have the chance to see modern Cambodian city life in action on a cyclo tour. For those who wish to know more about Cambodia's fraught history, the Killing Fields and the S-12 Genocide Museum provide a fascinating and deeply shocking insight into Khmer Rouge regime and the country's darkest hour.

Bookending your cruise are two very different experiences. First, with two days in Ho Chi Minh City, you will have a fast-paced introduction to one of Southeast Asia's major urban hubs. Second, to conclude your trip, you will visit a city of a very different cast: the ruins of Angkor, former centre of the ancient Khmer Empire.

This trip provides broad and enriching overview of the different sides of Vietnam and Cambodia, from busy cities to rural idylls.
