Travelmarvel cruise on the Mighty Mekong

Dreams of ancient temple realms, steaming bowls of mouthwatering pho and sleepy floating villages come to life in Vietnam and Cambodia. With the release of their brand-new season of touring, Travelmarvel invites you to join them on a Mekong River cruise in 2019.

Follow the Mekong River and discover an authentic side to Vietnam and Cambodia. A river cruise is a perfect way to fully immerse yourself in the local culture. In the Kampong Tralach district, climb aboard what is playfully coined the 'Khmer limousine' ­– an ox-cart ride. Pass by rice fields and patchwork countryside, waving to locals as you go by. In Oudong, among the hilly landscape of stupas and temples, receive a traditional Buddhist blessing by a monk. Meet the brightly-dressed hill tribe locals in the mountain town of Sapa in Vietnam. As well as the lesser-known wonders, you'll also see the cities from a whole new perspective. In Hanoi, enjoy a rickshaw ride through the maze of bustling streets in the Old Quarter.

On Travelmarvel's 12-day Essential Vietnam & Cambodia tour, see the very best these countries have to offer. A seven-night Mekong River cruise carries you from Siem Reap to Ho Chi Minh City, where daily life along the riverbank is a captivating performance. Between exciting daily excursions to silk-weaving villages, royal palaces and floating villages, relax aboard your floating hotel, the stylish RV La Marguerite. Wake to a different captivating view along the Mekong every morning. The elegant suites, attentive onboard service, spacious Sun Deck and contemporary facilities ensure that you will cruise in ultimate comfort and style. This popular tour is the perfect introduction to Vietnam & Cambodia. Starting at $3,695 per person twin share, including an Earlybird Fly Free offer.

Vietnam and Cambodia's fascinating history stretches back thousands of years. In Angkor Archaeological Park, the jungle tries its best to smother what is left of the ancient Khmer Empire. Watch as the sun sinks over Angkor Wat, setting a glorious scene. See the grinning faces etched into the temple of Bayon. In Vietnam, explore the labyrinth of tunnels at the Cu Chi Tunnels in Ho Chi Minh City and wander the walled city of Hue, which still echoes with the grandeur of Imperial Vietnam.

With 10 years of cruising the mighty Mekong under their belt, your in good hands when choosing  Travelmarvel for your Vietnam and Cambodia journey.
