11 night journey - Saigon - Siem Reap

Saigon to Siem Reap - Aqua Mekong Cruise

One of the most luxurious ways to discover local life in remote corners of Vietnam and Cambodia along the banks of the river is to join an extended cruise and Aqua Mekong is the best on the river. We wouldn’t look at it as a cruise ship as such, more of a floating luxury boutique hotel with just twenty spacious air-conditioned suites; each with floor to ceiling windows and some with outdoor balconies to make the most of the unique views of life on the river.

With four individual tenders(skiffs) on board and four knowledgeable guides, each day can be tailored to suit different guests’ interests and these small boats can venture deeper into the small tributaries of the river to visit places most of the larger boats can’t reach. The boat is also equipped with bicycles to explore further into the countryside. With a staff guest ratio of one to one the service is exceptional, along with top notch cuisine. There is an indoor and outdoor bar, restaurant, library, spa, boutique, cinema and even a plunge pool so there is plenty to fill your time beyond the captivating encounters off the ship.

Aqua Mekong has regular departures up or down river starting in either Hoh Chi Minh (Saigon), Phnom Penh or Siem Reap. Journeys vary depending on the river levels so please ask one of our experienced consultants for details of your preferred dates of travel.

Sample 7-night itinerary (3 & 4 nights and reverse schedule available)
(High river itinerary August – November. When water level is lower from December – August boats can’t cruise on the Tonle Sap Lake so the itinerary is similar but rather than cross the lake they return to Phnom Penh and then fly to Siem Reap)

Day 12

Onward journey

Head to the airport for your onward or homebound flight. You could consider flying down to the south of the country for a stay at one of the idyllic off-shore islands. Six Senses is a jungle haven, or Royal Sands boasts one of the best beaches we’ve seen in Asia.

Why Turquoise loves...
Vietnam
“Vietnam is one of the most diverse, exciting and beautiful destinations to visit in Asia. Whether your interests are in culture, history, beautiful scenery or simply relaxing on a beautiful beach, Vietnam well and truly has it all. In my opinion, Halong Bay is a must on any trip to Vietnam and for a real treat, why not fly into the Bay via seaplane? Ninh Binh province is also worth a visit for those looking to venture slightly further off the beaten track.” Carl Howells, Vietnam travel specialist
