Encounter the customs, culture and local life of the Mekong River as you travel between Siem Reap, Cambodia and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Weaving through a land of temples, pagodas and historic alms-houses, the Mekong showcases the rural grandeur of Southeast Asia in all its beauty and wonder.

Your journey begins in Siem Reap, a cradle of ancient temples and pagodas found deep in Cambodia’s northern forestlands. Here, trace the legacy of Angkor Wat amid the spectacular ruins of Angkor Thom, Elephant Terrace and the multi-faced Bayon Temple, before taking your seat at the Cambodian Circus of Phare – an exclusive Scenic Enrich experience.

Step on board Scenic Spirit, and begin your journey south on the timeless flow of the Mekong. Visit the ancient hilltop pagoda of Kampong Cham, learn about ecotourism in Cheung Kok, and receive a blessing from a monk in Kho Chen’s Buddhist pagoda during a special Scenic Enrich experience, before contributing to the daily alms ceremony of the resident nuns and monks.

As you slip into Vietnam, marvel at the French colonial architecture of Sa Dec, where you’ll enjoy high tea at the home of Mr Huynh Thuy Le and experience the authentic floating markets of Cai Be. Ho Chi Minh City, your final port of call, introduces a cultural showcase, from the Reunification Palace and War Museum to the infamous Cu Chi Tunnels – which formed the heart of the Viet Cong’s defence during the Vietnam War.
