Majestic Mekong with TripADeal

Your overall experience

The Mekong requires little introduction. One of the world’s great rivers, it brings life to bustling cities and remote villages as it flows through six countries from the hills to the sea. On this 12 day tour and cruise package of Vietnam and Cambodia, the wonders that exist along this legendary waterway are yours to uncover.


Enjoy a free day in the bustling tourist hub of Siem Reap, gateway to Angkor Wat, followed by a ‘pinch me’ experience viewing the sun rise over this majestic monument. Then, embark on an eight-night cruise aboard either the 4-star Indochine or Lan Diep river ships - depending on your departure date. Discover Kampong Chhnang, one of the largest fishing ports on the Tonle Sap lake; visit the Vihara of the Wat Kampong Tralach Leu Pagoda, set among beautiful rice fields; and enjoy free time and a guided tour of Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s impressive capital. Cross the border into Vietnam and experience the river port of Sa Dec, known for its stunning flower farms; travel by small boat among the orchards of Cai Bei, enjoy a guided tour of Ho Chi Minh City and more! Package includes return international flights, a relaxing eight-night Mekong cruise, English-speaking guides and more.

Want to explore even further? Choose the Vietnam post-tour extension package to experience vibrant Hanoi and Hoi An, together with the UNESCO listed waters of Halong Bay.
