Tour Description

 

Imagine cruising along South East Asia’s largest fresh water body in a vessel complete with extravagant rooms while you explore the rich and storied history of Cambodia’s past. Our Phnom Penh – Siem Reap Cruise allows just that as you elegantly voyage the Tonle Sap River and Lake with stops to see the local way of life as well as visit historical sites.

Day 1 – Arrival in Phnom Penh – Sightseeing in the morning will include visiting the Royal Palace, the Silver pagoda and the National Museum. . After lunch at a local restaurant visit the Genocide museum and the Killing Fields. We go back to the ship after our museum visit and enjoy a variety of cocktails accompanied by a traditional Apsara  dance performance on-board. (D)

Day 2 – Phnom Penh to Kampong Cham – We will depart before the break of dawn with a stop at the little known Chong Koh silk weaving village. We will then return to the ship and will cruise past the Mekong’s tranquil villages, exhilarating river life and sun-hardened fishermen on their make shift boats. (B, L, D)

Day 3Kampong Cham – Wat Hanchey – An early start and embark on a land journey to the pre-Angkorian temple of Wat Hanchey. Travellers either take a motor-taxi or climb the 291 steps to the top. Located at the top of a hill overlooking the river, it offers one of the most breath-taking views in Cambodia. When the tide allows, we will enjoy a surprise sojourn in our zodiacs (inflatable boats) to the nearby beach to swim in the tea-coloured Mekong river. (B, L, D)

Day 4Kampong Cham – Kampong Chhnang – Before the sun rises we set sail towards Kampong Chhnang on the Tonle Sap River. Here we take a motorboat excursion to the landing, followed by a short bus trip to the town’s specialty – Khmer-styled pottery at the Aundaung Russey village. Then, it is back to the river for an adventurous motorboat excursion to the wetlands, floating houses and fish farms in the region. We then return to the ship for lunch whilst cruising the narrow and meandering Tonle Sap. (B, L, D)

Day 5 – Kampong Chhnang – Siem Reap –The water level varies a great deal according to the time of the year and the amount of rainfall recorded. Thus, minor changes to the itinerary may occur during different seasons. Our cruise comes to an end as we reach this city of the fabled Angkor temple complex. (B, L)
