Think Southeast Asia is just beautiful, beautiful landscapes? There’s a lot more to it. The magic of the Mekong aside, river cruising gives you a view unlike any other. Mekong River will be the common thread of this trip between these two close, but very different countries: Vietnam and Cambodia. From the busy Ho Chi Minh city to the impressive Angkor Wat temple, you will discover the importance of the Mekong River in the people’s lifestyle of these regions. We will travel around the Mekong delta where we will lose ourselves in waterways, rice fields and orchards. Later, we will discover the exotic Cambodia and its gorgeous French and Khmer legacy. Join us in this amazing trip and you will sail over places you will never forget.
