A wonderful way to begin or end your visit to the magnificent temples of Angkor. The Mekong river, its Delta, and the Tonle Sap lake were the lifelines of the ancient Angkor Empire. As you enjoy your cruise you will be treated to remote lifestyles that have changed little since the height of this civilization. A rare insight that few visitors to Angkor get to experience.

Put the mythical Southeast Asian Angkor ( Siem Rea) and Saigon side by side and you have a meeting of two countries divided by an invisible line at the river. But the line becomes real when you compare their very different cultures, landscapes and pace of life. After the impressive pastoral riverbanks of Cambodia, we arrive in the "Land of the Nine Dragons", the rice granary of Vietnam. We are constantly struck by the hectic pace of life in this country as we pass houses over fish rearing pens in Chau Doc, the boat yards of Long Xuyen, Marguerite Duras' hometown of Sa Dec, the aquatic gardens of Vinh Long, the floating market in Cai Be, the temples, pagodas, brickworks, then the trawlers of My Tho, before dropping anchor at the nostalgic port of Saigon.
