Vietnam, Cambodia And The Riches Of A Mekong River Cruise


A Mekong River Cruise, there’s no other journey in the world quite like it. Both Vietnam and Cambodia offer lush, tropical greenery and a chance to discover some of South East Asia’s most incredible ancient cities, temples and natural wonders. If you are looking for a voyage with a difference in 2016 then this is certainly one to consider and we highly recommend AmaWaterways AmaDara.


Vietnam, a charming destination that offers vibrant cities and beautiful countryside alongside some of the most impressive temples and pagodas in the world. In the north, the capital of Hanoi and the beauty of Ha Long Bay await. Ha Long Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Gulf of Tonkin, includes some 1,600 islands and islets, forming a spectacular seascape of limestone pillars. It is truly a spectacle to see. On the central coast, Hue and Hoi An hold ancient appeal. In the south, bustling markets play out against a contrasting backdrop of French colonial architecture and skyscrapers in Saigon, also known as Ho Chi Minh City.


In Cambodia, a world of iconic landmarks is waiting to be discovered. Phnom Penh’s Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda have retained their magnificence despite the region’s war-ravaged past. In Siem Reap, lose yourself in ancient history at Angkor Archaeological Park when wandering the many famous temples. Angkor is actually one of the most important archaeological sites in South-East Asia, stretching over 400 km2. Angkor Wat is also the largest religious temple complex in the world.
