Over 14 memorable days, be inspired by the timeless heritage of Vietnam and Cambodia, neighbouring countries connected by the Mekong, but distinct in their unique customs and traditions.

Ho Chi Minh City marks the start of your journey to the heart of South East Asia, and here you’ll board the Scenic Spirit to begin your luxury cruise on the Mekong. In Cái Bè, board a Sampan to explore the enchanting floating markets, before visiting a traditional Vietnamese house. Take a trip to Evergreen Island, and ride a famous Xe Loi between historic farmsteads, finishing your tour at the beautiful Tra Su Bird Sanctuary.

Crossing the border into Cambodia, arrive at Phnom Penh, and there ride a traditional Tuk Tuk to the prestigious Raffles, Hotel Le Royal. Here, participate in a Scenic Enrich high tea experience, and enjoy the hotel’s renowned cocktail, the Femme Fatale, named in honour of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

Take your seat at the colourful Cambodian Circus of Phare, one of Siem Reap’s must-see cultural encounters. The following day, you’re treated to a Champagne breakfast as the sun rises over the Temples of Angkor. Spend the day exploring these ancient ruins, buried deep within the jungle, before attending an exclusive Scenic Enrich dinner amid the ancient stones of Angkor – the perfect way to raise a toast to what has undoubtedly been the trip of a lifetime.
