Fascinating Vietnam, Cambodia & The Mekong River With Bangkok (Northbound) on Avalon Saigon

Product Image
On this unique and inspiring Southeast Asia river cruise through Vietnam and Cambodia-including a stay in Bangkok, Thailand-you’ll be immersed in the cultures and ancient traditions as you sightsee and spend time with locals in the most fascinating places along the mighty Mekong River.

Spend time in the bustling Ho Chi Minh City which combines historic architecture with modern skyscrapers. See the famous landmarks and try your hand in the kitchen-Vietnamese-style, with a cooking class. On an excursion to the Cu Chi Tunnels, you’ll have an opportunity to walk through a section of the immense underground tunnel system used during the Vietnam War.

Embark on your river cruise along the Mekong River and visit a colorful market, the home of a local family making handcrafted sampans, and a workshop to learn how rice wine and traditional candies are made. In the capital of Cambodia, Phnom Penh, tour the National Museum and Royal Palace with its striking Silver Pagoda. On a hilltop at the site of the 8th-century temple of Wat Hanchey, take in the stunning views before walking through the rural village of Angkor Ban to visit with welcoming schoolchildren. Continue your river cruise vacation in Siem Reap, home to the phenomenal Temples of Angkor with an intricacy and architectural grandeur unmatched in the world.

Your Southeast Asia adventure concludes in Bangkok, the enchanting capital of Thailand, where you’ll get up close to its most renowned temples, including the Temple of the Reclining Buddha-the oldest and largest of its kind. You’ll also have plenty of leisure time to explore the "Venice of the East"-a perfect ending to this remarkable and cultural journey!
