Classic Mekong Cruise Saigon - Siem Reap

Duration: 8 days
Price from: 1.755 USD
1 My Tho  

Morning transfer to the port, embarking your Pandaw vessel in time for welcome drinks, a briefing and lunch. Sail across the vast Mekong Delta.

Your guide will collect your passports at the meeting point so we can arrange the immigration formalities.

PLEASE NOTE: We may experience low water levels between January and April. If we are unable to reach Kratie to see the river dolphins a revised itinerary will be offered with an exciting variety of excursions.

2 Sa Dec 

In the morning we will visit Cai Be floating market along canals and backwaters and then continue to Sa Dec via Vinh Long Province. Sa Dec has an interesting local market and the ancient house of Mr, Huyn Thuy Le, the 'lover' of Marguerite Duras, a famous French novelist whose book was imortalised in the film L’Indochine.

 
3 Chau Doc 

Visit a Moslem Cham tribal village and a cat fish farm in Chau Doc with our guide or do your own thing and take one of our mountain bikes and explore teh local market or the Catholic Church. Return to the ship by boat for lunch and cast off for the Cambodian border for the usual formalities.

4 Phnom Penh

Whilst in Phnom Penh you will be provided with their own private cyclo. The Cyclo Centre Phnom Penh which provides the cyclos is a charity that provides basic welfare and medical services to cyclo drivers. You will visit the Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda and National Museum. In the afternoon, optional excursion (by coach) to the Killing Fields and the Khmer Rouge's grim Tuol Sleng or S21 detention centre. 

5 Tonle River  

Explorations up Tonle River to a silver making village, Kampong Trolach, and Chong Koh either by ship or by coach depending on water levels. This river is very pretty and there is a vibrant local life to be viewed along the river banks and in lesser craft.

6 Kratie     

Morning walk at Angkor Ban and after an all day sail through delightful Cambodian countryside we reach charming French colonial town of Kratie in the evening. No other river ships get this high but thanks to the Mekong Pandaw’s shallow draft we can attempt it.

7 The Dolphin Grounds  

From Kratie we go further upstream using a local bus to view the dolphin grounds in a national park protected area. In the afternoon on our return downstream we stop at a curious shrine known as the Monkey Temple on the way to moor overnight near Kampong Cham.

8 Siem Reap 

Early morning coach transfer to Siem Reap. Refreshments will be provided and we will stop at Kampong Thom along the way. Arrive at Siem Reap mid-afternoon.
