Itinerary

Day 1
Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Day 2
Mekong River, Vietnam/Cambodia

Flowing through South East Asia, the Mekong is the longest river in the area and flows through China, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam. It is navigable between the latter two nations, and enables cruisers to gain a deeper insight into the ancient Khmer city of Angkor and the elegant former French colonial city of Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City).

From its source in the highlands of Tibet, the Mekong flows through China’s Yunnan province, through deep gorges and rapids to form the Myanmar-Laos border. It then curves through Laos to form part of the Laos-Thailand border. In Laos, the Mekong River descends the Cambodian plain, where it receives water from the magnificent Tonle Sap Lake during the dry season, via the Tonle River. Incredibly, during the rainy season, the floodwaters of the Mekong reverse the direction of the Tonle Sap River flow, causing it flow back into the lake and form a huge 93-mile wide reservoir.

Through a series of distributaries in the Mekong Delta, the Mekong River flows into the South China Sea. This delta is crossed by a number of channels and canals, making it one of the greatest rice-growing areas of Asia. This densely populated area is where you will also find Ho Chi Minh City, one of the most renowned cities in South East Asia. Within this fascinating area, you will find an endless series of towns floating on rafts and rich in river life and activity.

Large vessels are able to cruise along the Mekong River for 217 miles upstream, with Phnom Penh being a designated international port. North of the Cambodian border, the Mekong flows in short sections, as far as the Khone Falls – a six-mile-long series of rapids.

Day 5
Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam - My Tho, Vietnam

Following the fall of Saigon, the Vietnamese former capital was renamed Ho Chi Minh City in 1975. There are many landmarks and museums in the city which provide insight into the history of Vietnam including the Reunification Palace, which features a replica of the tank which ended conflict in 1975. Today, however, Ho Chi Minh City is a bustling metropolis, home to an array of landmarks and a vibrant culture. There are many authentic goods including striking silk-woven products to purchase, and several street markets selling delicious and authentic cuisine.

The inland port of My Tho sits on the banks of the Mekong River Delta, in southern Vietnam, 45 miles from Ho Chi Minh City. It is a transportation and commercial centre for a rich agricultural region and is surrounded by a series of waterways – of which will take you through orchards and immense rice fields. From here, it is possible to visit Nguyen Trung Truc, where you can visit the impressive Buddhist Vinh Trang Pagoda, with its Rajah’s palace style front façade.
