About This Trip

The vast, powerful Mekong is the lifeblood of South East Asia. It flows through dense, fragrant jungle, past rural dwellings where life has continued undisturbed for centuries, packed with incredible wildlife, glorious temples and incredibly friendly locals. And our cruise starts with one of the true wonders of the world, Angkor Wat. 

 

There is no better way to explore the heart of Cambodia than to cruise the Mekong. All around the world, humanity has based its habitations around the great rivers, Cambodia and Vietnam are no exceptions. The trip is bookended by the great Asian cities of Siem Reap and Ho Chi Minh City, and the middle section, an enchanting slice of rural Asia that you simply cannot discover any other way. 

 

Your river cruiser is no ordinary vessel either. Specially designed, the Toum Tiou II is a more intimate cruiser, which means that it can navigate the full length of the river and sail much closer to the banks, ensuring the view from the deck is always spectacular. Built in traditional colonial style, its wood-panelled rooms and expansive deck space make it a classy way to explore the mighty river. 

 

As well as the cities at either end, you will stay amongst the glittering temples of Phnom Penh, pay a sunrise visit to the glorious Angkor Wat and explore the rural wonders of Cambodia every single day. With stops at local villages, incredible craft producers and historical sites, there is no better way to paint an unforgettable image of this spectacular country.

Other Info
highlights

This trip is a truly historic and cultural immersion. Trying to pack in this much on a land-based tour would be impossible. On board the timeless chic of the Toum Tiou II river cruiser there are highlights every day as you explore the interior of Cambodia, learning so much about its incredible history, its ancient crafts and its truly delightful people. 

 

At the start of the tour is the unbelievable wonder of Angkor Wat and the sublime elegance of Siem Reap. Getting up at 430 am on the first day of your vacation might, at first, seem like madness. However, while you watch the burnt orange skies, melt away the purple clouds over the otherworldly spires of this ancient site, you will know you made the right decision. You will then spend the day with your local guide, exploring the sites of Angkor Thom and Angkor Wat. It will be hard not to use up all the space on your memory card on the first day, but do your best, there is so much more to come!

 

We break the river cruise halfway with a stop in Phnom Penh, a luscious city with an enviable location on the banks of the Mekong. Its golden temples and non-stop vibrance are a sheer joy to be a part of as you are whizzed through the streets to explore its greatest assets. The trip finishes up in Ho Chi Minh City, the capital of Vietnam, where we will show off its incredible architecture and visit the Cu Chi tunnels, famed for their part in the war.


location

Your trip begins in Siem Reap, home of the incredible Angkor Wat. After time spent exploring this beautiful city and its multitude of wonders, you board your river cruiser and head into the heart of Cambodia. We cruise up the river to Koh Chen, then on to Kampong Tralach before berthing for a few days in golden Phnom Penh. Then it is north towards Vietnam, stopping off in  Chau Doc and Cai Be before arriving in Ho Chi Minh where after some discovery time, the trip will come to its end.
