16-day tour starting in Hanoi, Ha Long Bay and Siem Reap, before embarking on your 7-night Mekong River cruise. End your journey with a 2-night stay in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon).

There can be no more striking cultural contrast than the one between bustling Vietnam and tranquil Cambodia. From Ho Chi Minh City through the Mekong Delta, so rich in human life and endeavor, to the diverse countryside of Cambodia, you'll discover two countries, two cultures, and two ways of life linked by one river, the Mekong.

Your journey begins in Vietnam’s bustling capital, Hanoi, followed by an excursion to breathtaking Ha Long Bay for an overnight sojourn. A short flight to Siem Reap, Cambodia, brings you to the gateway of the ancient Khmer empire. Spend three days touring the temples of Angkor Archeological Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, before embarking your Mekong cruise on Tonle Sap Lake. Visit rural villages, historic pagodas, floating markets and a Buddhist monastery along the way. Overnight in Phnom Phen, capital of Cambodia. Conclude your cruise in lively Ho Chi Minh City, where you will enjoy a two-night stay.
