ITINERARY

Day 1: Depart Australia – Arrive Cambodia

Pack your bags for a Mekong adventure as you board your international flight to Cambodia. Upon arrival in Siem Reap, make your own way to the hotel for check-in.

Day 2: Mekong River Cruise Embarkation – Chnok Tru (B, D)

Make your own way to your Siem Reap meeting point to transfer to the Phnom Krom pier for your Mekong River Cruise embarkation. Settle in to your surroundings with a welcome drink and dinner as the crew sets sail for Chnok Tru. In the slight chance that water levels are too low, you may embark from Koh Chen instead.

Day 3: Chnok Tru – Kampong Chhnang (B, L, D)

Arrive at Chnok Tru this morning, one of the biggest floating villages on the Tonle Sap River. Learn about the local industries of fish farming, pottery and sugar palm production.

Head to Kampong Chhnang next, one of the largest fishing ports on the river. Wander through the local market and visit a brick factory to gain insight into these local industries. Explore a sugar plum farm and learn about the production of caramel coloured sugar form the Thnot tree (sugar palm), used in large cakes and palm wine.

Day 4: Kampong Chhnang – Phnom Penh (B, L)

Arrive at Kampong Tralach this morning, starting your day with a visit to the majestic Vihara Buddhist Monastery and Wat Kampong Tralach Leu pagoda. En-route enjoy a riverside drive through Kampong Tralach Krom village crossing beautiful stretches of emerald rice paddies.

Head to the small town of Koh Chen to visit family-run silver and copper workshops. You may even get the chance to meet a Khmer Rouge survivor and hear about their story under the regime. Enjoy an afternoon cyclo tour through Phnom Penh, departing from the buzzing What Phnom. Admire the stunning colonial architecture of the post office and Van’s Restaurant before making your way to the Royal Palace and the National Museum.

Explore Phnom Penh at your leisure this evening, perhaps discovering the atmospheric riverside roads lined with buzzing cafes.

Day 5: Phnom Penh (B, D)

Start your morning with a guided tour to the Tuol Sleng Museum, learning about the dark history and devastation that plagued the Security Prison 21 (S-21) under the Khmer Rouge regime. Continue onto the sombre Killing Fields of Choeung Ek, a powerful memorial to victims of the regime lined with mass graves.

Spend the afternoon at your leisure, perhaps exploring the Silver Pagoda or Russian Market. Return to the boat for an Apsara show before departure this evening.

Day 6: Phnom Penh – Chau Doc – Sa Dec (B, D)

Cross the border into Vietnam and cruise to Chau Doc. Start the day with a visit to the Tra Su Bird Sanctuary, gliding through serene waters to enjoy bird spotting via powerboat and small local rowing boats.

Day 7: Sadek – Sa Dec – Vinh Long – My Tho (B, L, D)

Start your morning with a visit through the Kien An Cung Pagoda in Sa Dec and take time to stroll through the Sa Dec riverside market. A small city with a population of only 30,000, Sa Dec provides a glimpse into life along the Mekong, with unspoiled tree-lined streets, fading colonial vistas and preserved architecture less travelled to by tourist masses.

Continue on to Vinh Long, weaving through its small pathed streets to learn about the local industry of rice popping. Head to Cai Be by local boat where you’ll meet the ship, dropping anchor near Thoi Son Island.
