Experience the colorful culture of Vietnam and Cambodia on this 4-day cruise. Begin in Phnom Penh and sail up the Mekong River on your way towards Ho Chi Minh City. Stop in the floating villages to experience the history of the region and interact with local children and monks.

Day 1

Phnom Penh Meeting Point

Meet your guides and porters and transfer by bus to the Aqua Mekong. Settle in to your suite as the ship begins to sail the Mekong. In the evening, view a performance by renowned Cambodian apsara dancers, who continue an ancient tradition venerated on the intricately carved walls at Angkor Wat.

Day 2

Ka'am Samnor-Vinh Xuong Border/My An Hung, Vietnam

In the morning, cross the border between Cambodia and Vietnam and sail towards Tan Chau, a gorgeous border town by the Mekong River. Take skiffs along the Bassac Canal and admire river life along the border. Disembark in Tan Chau and take a xe loi (rickshaw) ride around town. Walk around the colorful and exciting market and the shops around town before heading back to the ship.

In the afternoon, explore My An Hung village. Here you may get the chance to see a traditional Mekong musical performance and eat delicious, freshly picked local fruits.

Day 3

Binh Thanh Island/Caibe, Vietnam

Begin today with an excursion to Binh Thanh Island. Observe villagers weaving baskets and mats from reeds and water hyacinths from the Mekong River, go the local temple, and meet local villagers. Before heading back to the Aqua Mekong, stop by a local fish farm and learn how the locals fish directly underneath their floating home.

After lunch, paddle through the Cai Be floating market on a sampan, a flat-bottom wooden boat. Then, explore the area on foot or bicycle.

Day 4

  • Breakfast
