Trav­el­ling at a lan­guid pace al­lows op­por­tu­nity for re­flec­tion. It’s in th­ese slowed-down mo­ments along the Mekong, where you’ll cruise for eight days from Ho Chi Minh City in Viet­nam to Siem Reap in Cam­bo­dia, that the open­ing of eyes, minds and hearts be­gins. Dur­ing a Kh­mer meal at the New Hope Vo­ca­tional Train­ing Restau­rant in Siem Reap you’ll re­alise that you will be tak­ing home more than just In­sta­gram mo­ments. A so­cial en­ter­prise de­vel­oped by G Ad­ven­tures, this restau­rant pro­vides skill-build­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties to lo­cals and funds the free com­mu­nity school and health cen­tre. You’ll also en­joy ex­pe­ri­ences such as crawl­ing through the Cu Chi tun­nels, rid­ing a cy­clo – a three­wheel bi­cy­cle taxi – in Ph­nom Penh and vis­it­ing the float­ing vil­lage of Ch­nok Tru.
