Fascinating Vietnam, Cambodia & the Mekong River from Ho Chi Minh City to Bangkok
2013 / 2014
14 days from Ho Chi Minh City to Bangkok
Step back in history as you explore Vietnam and Cambodia on this amazing cruise vacation. Enjoy a 7-night cruise along the Mekong River, discover the ancient ruins of Angkor, visit some of Vietnam’s and Cambodia’s historical treasures, behold spectacular scenery, and learn about different cultures. This is a journey like no other! Cambodia and Vietnam have a long history and on this tour, you’ll see some of the historical sights, including the Cu Chi Tunnels in Vietnam—a network of tunnels used by the Viet Cong—and the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum in Cambodia—a former high school that housed over 17,000 prisoners. Learn about the culture with a hands-on Vietnamese cooking class in Ho Chi Minh City, a lecture on Buddhism in Udong, an opportunity to partake in a traditional water blessing given by local monks in Kampong Cham, a private Apsara dance performance in Siem Reap, and a visit to traditional Khmer houses, a local school, and a Buddhist monastery in Angkor Ban. A highlight of this tour is a visit to the temples at Angkor in Cambodia. These ancient temples, built between the 9th and 13th centuries, are unmatched among ancient ruins anywhere in the world. See many of the temples, including spectacular Angkor Wat, built in the 12th century and honoring the Hindu god Vishnu. Words and photos simply cannot describe these amazing structures. They must be visited in person! All of this and more await you on this fabulous cruise vacation. So pack your camera and get ready for the trip of a lifetime!
