Me­an­der­ing along the Mekong from Ho Chi Minh City to Siem Reap, you’ll be trans­ported from the French colo­nial splen­dour of Saigon, to Ph­nom Penh’s Killing Fields and stop at small sil­ver­smithing vil­lages, shiny pago­das and an­cient hill­top monas­ter­ies along this aquatic artery. On top of sight­see­ing op­tions, five “en­rich” ac­tiv­i­ties are pep­pered through­out the itin­er­ary that will see you re­ceive a bless­ing from a monk, learn how to pray in a Bud­dhist pagoda, en­joy a Cam­bo­dian cir­cus per­for­mance and wit­ness sun­rise over Angkor Wat. Af­ter dis­em­bark­ing from your lux­ury ship, stay on in Siem Reap to dis­cover the tem­ples, an­cient hy­draulic sys­tems and com­mu­ni­ca­tion routes of Angkor. The tour cul­mi­nates in a gala din­ner at an Angkor tem­ple.
