Cruise along Asia’s  incredible Mekong River, located between Vietnam and Cambodia. The longest river in Southeast Asia and the 12th  longest on earth, the Mekong is also a hub for Vietnamese culture and a major transportation route for villagers living in the Delta. From floating markets selling fish, coconut candy, tropical fruit, vegetables and flowers to bee farms that line the river, the Mekong throbs from before sunrise to after dark with vital economic activity. Watch artisans producing the magnificent silverware favored by Khmer royalty. Discover the Tuol Sleng Museum of Genocide and the Killing Field or enjoy simply shopping at a local Russian Market.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
