2020: The Heart of Cambodia & Vietnam with Bangkok & Luang Prabang (Southbound) (WSIU) - Siem Reap
23 days Bangkok to Luang Prabang
This inspiring Southeast Asia river cruise vacation begins in vibrant Bangkok, Thailand. A boat ride on the klongs, Bangkok's famous canals, is the perfect way to start your sightseeing. Continue at the Grand Palace featuring the Temple of the Emerald Buddha followed by the Temple of the Reclining Buddha-the oldest and largest Buddhist temple in the city. Fly to Siem Reap, Cambodia, where you'll see the magnificent Temples of Angkor, such as Angkor Wat and the Bayon temple, featuring some 200 mysterious faces carved in its many towers. Next, board your ship and begin your cruise along the mighty Mekong River. Visit the capital city of Phnom Penh, with the magnificent Royal Palace featuring its striking Silver Pagoda and the National Museum. Take in the stunning views at the 8th-century temple of Wat Hanchey before walking through the rural village of Angkor Ban to visit with welcoming schoolchildren. Continue your cruise into Vietnam and stop in the villages for interactions with locals, such as a visit to the home of a skilled family who make handcrafted sampans for a living. In exciting Ho Chi Minh City, enjoy a walking tour of the famous landmarks and try your hand in the kitchen with a Vietnamese cooking class. Disembark your cruise ship and fly to Hanoi, where you'll explore the famous Old Quarter with peddlers trading goods among its 36 ancient streets. From here, travel to Ha Long Bay in the Gulf of Tonkin, where you'll be amazed at the more than 3,000 limestone islands of varying shapes. Enjoy a 2-night cruise along the bay with visits to the Cua Van Floating Village, fascinating caves, and a chance to swim at Ti Top Island. Finally, Luang Prabang is a well-preserved ancient town representing the heart of Laotian culture. Here, you'll ascend Mount Phousi for stunning views of the city and the Mekong River below and stop in the National Museum to learn about the last king and queen of Laos. The beautiful scenery, ornate temples, and interactions with locals make this Southeast Asia river cruise vacation one you won't soon forget!
