River Cruise Itinerary

Day 1 (Mon, Dec 02, 2019): PREK KDAM - EMBARKATION -KOH CHEN

Board the ship in Prek Kdam for your Riches of the Mekong cruise. (D)


Day 2 (Tue, Dec 03, 2019): KAMPONG CHHNANG - KAMPONG TRALACH -OUDONG

A local motorboat takes you into the lakeside wetlands that form the mouth of Tonle Sap River. Enjoy the stunning variety of bird life here as well as tranquil floating villages and its busy market. Be treated to an authentic experience, an ox cart ride through a local village. Afterwards, you’ll take a motorcoach to Oudong, situated on a picturesque hillside. Oudong was Cambodia’s former royal capital from 17th century until 1866; today, Oudong is a place of pilgrimage for Cambodians. While here, you’ll visit one of Cambodia’s largest monasteries, where you’ll be treated to a memorable Buddhist blessing ceremony. Your ship departs for Oknhatey Village and moors midstream. (B,L,D)


Day 3 (Wed, Dec 04, 2019): OKNHATEY VILLAGE - PHNOM PENH

Koh Oknhatey, or “Silk Island,” located on the lush banks of the Mekong River, is known for its rich tradition of silk weaving. You’ll go to Oknhatey, where you’ll visit a local elementary school and observe the traditional silk weaving of handicrafts. Later, your ship departs for Phnom Penh, the vibrant colorful capital of Cambodia. Experience Phnom Penh via an authentic tuk tuk ride and be enchanted by the city’s French Colonial architecture and tree-lined boulevards set amidst monumental Angkorian architecture. During the evening on board, enjoy a Khmer folk performance presented by local children. (B,L,D)


Day 4 (Thu, Dec 05, 2019): PHNOM PENH

You will have a choice of excursions this morning. Visit Cambodia’s infamous Killing Fields and the Khmer Rouge’s grim Tuol Sleng S21 detention center (Genocide Museum) or, if you prefer to stay in Phnom Penh, you can visit the bustling yellow-colored Central Market. After lunch on board, you’ll explore the highlights of the city, followed by the Royal Palace, the spectacular Silver Pagoda and the National Museum, which has an outstanding collection of Khmer crafts. (B,L,D)


Day 5 (Fri, Dec 06, 2019): PHNOM PENH – BORDER CROSSING – TAN CHAU

Day 6 (Sat, Dec 07, 2019): TAN CHAU - SA DEC

Enjoy a visit to Tan Chau, a small Mekong River town unspoiled by tourism. You will have the opportunity to get an authentic experience and take a traditional “xe-loi” (trishaw) ride around the town, with stops at silk-making and rattan mat workshops, followed by a boat ride through the narrow channels of the Mekong River to “Evergreen Island.” Alternatively, simply take the boat ride to Evergreen Island and return to Tan Chau, where you will visit a rattan mat workshop. Later in the day, cruise to Sa Dec. (B,L,D)


Day 7 (Sun, Dec 08, 2019): SA DEC - XEO QUYT - CAI BE

Once ashore in Sa Dec, tour the town where French writer Marguerite Duras spent many years in her youth.

Later, board a motorcoach for Xeo Quyt, once used as a base during the French and U.S. wars and now an important ecological site. You will have an opportunity to visit candy and rice paper-making workshops and the historic Kiet Old House. Cap the day off with a festive Farewell Dinner on board. (B,L,D)


Day 8 (Mon, Dec 09, 2019): HO CHI MINH CITY - DISEMBARKATION
