From the cultural melting pot of Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh City to the time-forgotten villages of Cambodia’s Mekong Delta, your perennial wanderlust will be thoroughly quenched as you travel in luxury along the enchanting Mekong River with Scenic. History, culture and spectacular scenic beauty are the order of the day on this wonderful 12 day cruise, and our journey designers have worked to include some of the region’s most distinct travel experiences into the itinerary. The tour begins in the ancient city of Siem Reap, whose temples and shrines are among the most spectacular on the continent. You’ll spend a few days exploring the highlights of this wonderful city, before journeying south to Kampong Cham, where Scenic Spirit will be waiting to transport you down the Mekong in absolute luxury and comfort. As you journey further south, crossing the border into Vietnam, you’ll stop at a number of charming destinations, including Tan Chau and Sa Dec, whose floating markets are the stuff of legend. Then it’s onward to Vietnam’s bustling second city, Ho Chi Minh City, whose colonial architecture and Vietnam War-era relics, including the enigmatic Cu Chi Tunnels, provide a final hit of culture before you say goodbye to Vietnam and Southeast Asia for the final time.
