Mekong River Cruise & Cambodia Beach Holiday Wendy Wu Tours
This NEW flight-inclusive 10-day cruise and beach break combines the best of all worlds; small-ship luxury river cruising, the cultural treasures of the Mekong River, and the rolling countryside and sandy beaches of Kep on Cambodia's southern coast.
Wendy Wu's brand new eco-friendly vessel, the Victoria Mekong offers a uniquely elegant small-ship experience, with guests invited to make use of the onboard spa, library, games room, infinity pool and two bars. All 35 cabins have mini-safes, Wi-Fi access and private balconies, and are some of the largest cruise cabins on the Mekong.
Fly overnight to Saigon, where the rest of the day is yours to start soaking up the local culture. You may wish to explore the city independently or simply relax in your hotel.
After breakfast, transfer to the meeting point in Saigon and drive to Can Tho, stopping en route for lunch. Board the Victoria Mekong which, after a welcome briefing, will cast off into the waters of the Mekong Delta. Dine on delicious local cuisine at the welcome dinner and enjoy a traditional music show as you cruise upstream. Later, retire to your comfortable stateroom for the night.
Tender ashore to Tiger Island, where you will enjoy an exploration of local industries such as net weaving, incense making and banh in (rice cakes) making. Sit down to dinner and evening entertainment before retiring to your cabin. Tonight, the ship will drop anchor at Vam Nao.
Continue your cruise with excursions around Tan Chau, including a stop at a Cao Dai temple, a silk village and the option of a visit to the submerged Tra Su Forest. In the evening, enjoy a thrilling lion dance performance on board.
Cross over into Cambodia, taking in the passing scenery. Onboard activities such as cocktail making will be available. In the late afternoon, dock at Sisowath Quay for a traditional Apsara performance and a farewell dinner.
Disembark the ship this morning. Your private driver will collect you for your private transfer to the beach resort town of Kep on Cambodia's southern coast.
Today is at leisure to relax beside the waves or explore the town. You may wish to head to the beach for sunbathing or a spot of reading beside the shore.
Another day at leisure. You may wish to book excursions in the countryside of Kep National Park, or perhaps an onsite cooking class – your hotel will be able to assist. This region is particularly famous for its pepper farms – Kampot pepper is a protected designation and is considered some of the best in the world.
Your private driver will collect you for your transfer to the airport for your onward journey.
