About this Tour

We are able to offer 3 different Mekong river cruises that allow travelers to cruise between Vietnam and Cambodia or just internally in Cambodia. Our boat river cruises through Cambodia and Vietnam are the perfect way to explore and experience the real way of life in Asia as so many people’s livelihoods depend on the mighty Mekong river.

All of these boat cruises can also be done in reverse, such as starting in Phnom Penh and finishing in Siem Reap in accordance to the 3 day Mekong cruise, or from Saigon and finishing in Siem Reap on our 6 and 8 day Mekong boat trips.
