Nick and Iris Van Gruisen take a cruise along the mighty Mekong River from the dynamic Vietnamese capital of Saigon to Cambodia’s Phnom Penh with an additional overland trip to the magical temples of Angkor.
Travel on board the brand new, all-suite river boat, the Mekong Princess, chartered exclusively for a 7-night cruise. Our party will be a maximum of 24 travellers in 12 exquisite suites. We will travel on this unique adventure through the Mekong Delta in luxury from our start in Saigon at the newly renovated Park Hyatt, to the culmination at the stylish Belmond La Residence d’Angkor, the undisputed best hotel in Siem Reap.
Highlights of the tour include the dynamic bustling life and colonial past of Saigon, taking a sampan through the floating markets of Can Tho and visiting the eccentric Cao Dai Temple. We will watch the sunrise over the famed Angkor Wat temple, see Ta Prohm, engulfed by tree roots as explorers found it, and ponder the enigmatic expression on the carved faces of Bayon temple.
