2008 Mekong & Temples:12 day Cambodia & Vietnam Tour

2008 Mekong and Temples - 12 days

A speedboat whisks you up the Mekong from Vietnam to Cambodia.

Start your foray into Southern Vietnam and Cambodia in the area's largest, most dynamic city – Saigon. The markets overflow with fabrics, handicrafts and trinkets, and the restaurants here offer some of the tastiest dishes in Asia. Then you will get to know the Mekong Delta, from her large channels to quiet waterways. Cross into Cambodia on an exciting speedboat trip that will lead you all the way to Phnom Penh, Cambodia's vibrant capital. And culminate by exploring the stunning temples of Angkor.

Responsible Travel: Though the Mekong Delta is one of Vietnam’s most fertile regions, it is also one of the country’s less developed areas. Your visit helps disseminate wealth and understanding. To help, read our online Guide to Responsible Travel before you arrive.
