From the heights of the Himalayas to the coast of the China Sea, over the course of its almost 2,800-mile journey, the Mekong River passes through much more than just Indochina. Wherever it flows, it fascinates people and shapes their lives. From the Delta and Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City), a town still filled with souvenirs of the French colonial presence, right to the great lake of Tonlé Sap and Siem Reap, a city at the foot of the Angkor Sites, the Mekong today has to work hard to maintain suitable water levels, with many dams along its course, and subject to more and more extraordinary monsoons.
On arrival at the airport in Siem Reap, you’ll be greeted by your guide and transferred to your hotel. You’ll have lunch at the hotel, and can check into your room at 2 p.m. This afternoon, we’ll visit the Senteurs d'Angkor and its workshop to observe how many of their products are made. We’ll have dinner in the city and spend the night at the hotel.
Enjoy breakfast before leaving early this morning to visit Banteay Srei, a 10th-century Cambodian temple dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva, widely praised as the “Jewel of Khmer Art.” We’ll then visit the temple of Ta Prohm, built in the late 12th century and still as it was found centuries later with trees growing out of the ruins. We’ll have lunch in the city before exploring Angkor Thom and the monumental temple of Bayon, famous for its towers and 172 faces of Avalokitesvara. We’ll end the afternoon tour with Phare, the Cambodian circus, before having dinner. Afterwards, enjoy a stroll through the market at night. We’ll spend the night at the hotel.
Enjoy breakfast before visiting the Angkor Wat temple, the epitome of Khmer architectural art. Lunch will be served at the hotel. In the early afternoon, you’ll be transferred from the hotel to the ship. After comfortably settling into your cabins, we’ll introduce our crew at a welcome cocktail and have dinner on board. We’ll spend the night on board.
Enjoy breakfast while crossing the lake. We’ll have lunch before visiting Kampong Chhnang, one of the largest fishing ports on the Tonle Sap. Fish farming is abundant here. The region is also known for its particularly archaic pottery. We’ll taste the palm sugar harvested from the Thnot, a sugar palm that is also a national symbol, and visit the floating village on small boats. We’ll return back on board and depart for Kampong Tralach. We’ll have dinner and spend the night on board.
After breakfast this morning, we’ll visit the beautiful Wat Kampong Tralach Leu pagoda. We’ll then explore the small village of Koh Chen, where craftspeople specialize in silver and copper work. We’ll also visit the village school. Afterwards, we’ll return to the ship and cruise to Phnom Penh, where we’ll cross the city in an infamous “Tuk-tuk.” We’ll return again to the ship and enjoy a performance of classical Khmer dancing and music. We’ll remain in port overnight.
Enjoy breakfast before visiting the Silver Pagoda and the Royal Palace, one of the finest examples of Cambodian architecture inspired by the traditional Khmer style. The Silver Pagoda houses many national treasures, including gold and jeweled Buddha statues. Onward to visit the National Museum, home to the Museum of Fine Arts, built in 1917 by the French but using the traditional Khmer style. We’ll have lunch in the city before visiting the Tuol Svay Prey School, a former detention, torture and execution center run by the Khmer Rouge during the civil war. Afterwards, spend some free time at the market. We’ll return on board for dinner and the night.
Enjoy breakfast on board as we cruise to the Vietnamese border. We’ll spend the morning taking care of customs formalities. We’ll have lunch before arriving at Chau Doc, a small city that has prospered around fishing and fish farming. We’ll set out on small boats to visit a fish farm, returning through Chau Doc and visiting the temples of Ba Chua Xu and Tay An. We’ll return on board and continue towards Sa Dec. We’ll have dinner and spend the night on board
Enjoy breakfast before exploring the local market and visiting the former house of Huynh Thuy Le, the man who Marguerite Duras based her book The Lover on. We’ll have lunch on board as we cruise to Vinh Long. We’ll then take a boat ride through the arroyos and orchards to Cai Be. We’ll discover a brick and pottery factory, a fruit tree nursery in Binh Hoa Phuoc, puffed riced and the rice paper wrappers used to make nems, rice alcohol and coconut candies. Afterwards, we’ll return on board and start to cruise once again. We’ll have dinner and spend the night on board.
All meals served on board. On one of the largest islands, Thoi Son, enjoy a visit to a honey farm and taste their honey tea and exotic fruits. Lunch will be served while we cruise on the Cho Gao Canal towards Ho Chi Minh City. We'll have dinner and spend the night on board. The evening is free to do as you please.
After breakfast this morning, we’ll tour Ho Chi Minh City, conquered by the French and made a colony in 1859. We’ll see the Reunification Palace, Notre Dame Cathedral and the Saigon Central Post Office. After lunch on board, join us for a visit to a lacquer painting workshop. Afterwards, enjoy some free time in the local souvenir market. Tonight a cocktail will be served followed by dinner. We’ll remain in port overnight. The evening is free to do as you please.

Vous naviguerez sur une jonque moderne, très confortable, réplique d'une jonque ancienne. Les voiles y sont essentiellement décoratives et sont en principe hissées une fois durant la navigation. Plusieurs nationalités se côtoient et la jonque n'est pas privatisée pour nos passagers. Il faut savoir que plus de 200 jonques naviguent régulièrement tous les jours en Baie d'Along. Certains sites de visites comme la Grotte des Surprises sont parfois très fréquentés. La croisière en Baie d'Along peut être annulée en cas de très mauvaise mer. Le temps, selon les saisons, est changeant. Que ce soit sous le soleil, sous la bruine ou dans la brume, elle reste néanmoins l'une des plus belles baies du monde.
Pas de vaccin obligatoire. Il est cependant conseillé d'être en règle avec ses vaccinations (tétanos, poliomyélite, hépatite A et B, diphtérie et la fièvre typhoïde). Traitement antipaludéen recommandé (à voir avec votre médecin traitant). Les produits anti-moustiques sont recommandés.
La saison sèche dure de décembre à avril, mais l'atmosphère reste humide (température : 25 à 35°). La saison verdoyante court de mai à octobre et se définit par de belles averses, mais brèves, qui ont généralement lieu en fin d'après-midi. Pour les extensions, dans le Nord Vietnam, de décembre à fin mars, il peut faire frais, voire froid à Hanoï et dans la Baie d'Along. Prévoir pull ou polaire et coupe-vent.
MOYEN DE PAIEMENT :
La monnaie à bord du RV Indochine et du RV Indochine II est le dollar américain. Vous pouvez laisser une empreinte de carte à l'embarquement afin que l'ensemble de vos dépenses soient comptabilisées et payées en fin de croisière. Vous pouvez régler en dollar ou par carte de crédit internationale (Visa et Mastercard).
MONNAIE - CHANGE :
1€ = env. 24 000 VND (Dong Vietnamien)*

La devise étrangère la plus courante est le dollar américain. Prévoir des petites coupures. L’euro n’est pas accepté partout. Les cartes bancaires sont très peu utilisées et les "Travellers Chèques" difficiles à échanger.

Can Tho is the fourth largest city in Vietnam and the largest in the Mekong River Delta region. People that visit are here primarily for the boat cruises that take you to the world-famous floating markets. A confluence of boats that merge in various locations of the river for trade of mostly fresh fruit and produce. For this trip I hired a boat for about $14 dollars that will take me on an approximate 3.5 hour tour on the Hua River, a tributary of the Mekong where I'll see a wholesale floating market in action and visit a rice paper making village. After 45 minutes of passing by colorful vessels and regular river activity, including tourist boats heading in the opposite direction on their way to other floating markets we arrived at the Cai Rang wholesale market. Cruising at a slower speed by boats almost spilling over with pineapples and other fresh fruit and produce. Local buyers arrive to purchase goods from the farmers that bring their fruit and produce to Cai Rang and take it to the cities to sell to shops and other wholesalers.
