Siem Reap - Angkor Temples - KOH CHEN - KAMPONG TRALACH - KAMPONG CHHNANG - PHNOM PENH - CHAU DOC - SA DEC - VINH LONG - CAI BE - MY THO - HO CHI MINH CITY

From the heights of the Himalayas to the southern coasts of the South China Sea, winding over 2,700 miles, the Mekong is much more than just irrigation for Indochina—everywhere it flows, it fascinates men and shapes their lives. Come take an expedition on this grand and plentiful “water snake,” from the ruins of Angkor to Tonle Sap river following the footsteps of Henri Mouhot, to Phnom Penh and Ho Chi Minh City, still largely influenced by the French colonial days. Our meditative trip takes you along the Mekong River on board a ship combining charm and colonial-style comfort.
