Mekong River Cruise & Phu Quoc Beach Holiday Wendy Wu Tours
This NEW flight-inclusive 8-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 island sands of some of Vietnam's best beaches. Your holiday break begins with a luxurious 3-night Mekong river cruise between Cambodia and Vietnam. Discover the sights and sounds of Mekong life as you cruise downriver, then enjoy a few private days at leisure on the glorious sands of Phu Quoc Island in the Gulf of Thailand.
Wendy Wu's brand new eco-friendly vessel, the Victoria Mekong, offers passengers a uniquely elegant small-ship experience, with passengers 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.
Depart the UK for your international overnight flight to Phnom Penh. Arrive in Phnom Penh, where you will board the Victoria Mekong at Sisowath Quay, close to Wat Phnom. Relax with a sundowner on deck in the evening and enjoy an Apsara dance performance before dinner.
Cruise to Vam Nao in the morning, enjoying activities such as cultural lectures or cocktail making sessions before lunch on board. This afternoon, tender ashore to Vam Nao to visit traditional local industries such as clay potters and local rice cake makers. Return to the ship for dinner, where the evening's entertainment will include a lion dance performance.
Continue downstream to Long Xuyen and disembark to visit the bustling floating market and a local museum. After lunch back onboard, arrive at Tan Loc Island, where you can visit the old house and a lush garden for tea and fruit – a taste of Mekong hospitality. Alternatively, visit a plum farm where plum wine is made, which you can taste. Sail on to Can Tho, a Mekong Delta city where the ship will dock. Enjoy traditional music of the Mekong while you sip a farewell cocktail and dinner.
