Cruise only (Please call for flight options)
Setting sail from My Tho
My Tho is the start or end point for most Mekong river cruises, a busy port situated just under two hours' drive south of Ho Chi Minh City. You're unlikely to spend any time in the town itself, but you'll be able to settle in on board your ship and catch your first glimpses of life on the Mekong Delta, as barges unload their cargo of sand, rice and timber from upriver and little fishing boats float amongst the clumps of water hyacinth.
Vietnam: Sa Dec
The riverfront town of Sa Dec is one of the most appealing destinations in the Mekong Delta, a laid back and peaceful place where boats laden with flowers from the nearby markets ply the waterways, overlooked by beautiful old French colonial villas.
Cambodia: Phnom Penh
Cambodia’s lively, youthful capital has shown a remarkable resilience in bouncing back from the horrors of the Khmer Rouge regime. The beautiful Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda shouldn’t be missed, while the former Tuol Sleng prison is a harrowing reminder of Phnom Penh’s recent past.
Arriving in Kampong Cham
A visit to Kampong Cham will give you an insight into life in a provincial Cambodian city, well off the normal tourist trail. Situated on a bend in the Mekong river, the city is famous for its bamboo bridge which is rebuilt every year, and there are also some interesting temples nearby.
Your home from home
The all-suite Mekong Jewel brings a new level of luxury to the waterways of Vietnam and Cambodia.
