The Very Best of Vietnam & Cambodia Tour

Home Icon 22-day Very Best of Vietnam and Cambodia starting at £5,345pp

Vietnam and Cambodia are the very essence of Indochina, and are a magical part of the world to explore. Ancient and modern worlds collide throughout to create a truly thrilling adventure; the hustle and bustle of local markets, phenomenal landscapes, archaeological treasures, and tranquil villages.

With gastronomic delights, friendly people and so much of their unique character and traditions still in evidence, Vietnam and Cambodia are a delight to discover on Distant Journeys’ Very Best of Vietnam & Cambodia escorted tour.

As you would expect from Distant Journeys, you’ll find a number of once-in-a-lifetime experiences within our itinerary; there is a very special two-night stay on Vietnam’s breath-taking Ha Long Bay, you’ll explore one of Asia’s most awe-inspiring landmarks, Angkor Wat in Cambodia; and what’s more, a wonderful three-night cruise on the mighty Mekong is included – a relaxing and delightful way to experience and explore this region as we travel between Vietnam and Cambodia.

You can, if you prefer,  travel on our Very Best of Vietnam & Cambodia tour as a private tour. Providing exclusivity and convenience, our Private Tours allow you a wider choice of departure dates, the privacy of your own vehicle driven by friendly and your own knowledgeable local guides.

Why not extend your holiday with a visit to Luang Prabang in Laos?

Day 14

Mekong River Cruise, 3 nights

Pandaw Mekong River Cruise between Vietnam and Cambodia

Tour Highlight

Our fabulous three-night cruise between Vietnam and Cambodia begins when we head to My Tho, gateway to the Mekong Delta, to embark our vessel, the RV Bassac Pandaw, or RV Mekong Pandaw. These elegant, hand-built cruise ships are traditionally-styled in brass and teak and customised to navigate the flowing waters of the Mekong Delta and river. After a delicious lunch, we disembark to travel by sampan (traditional wooden boat) through mangroves and bamboo forests to Ben Tre, known for its fruit orchards. This area is rich in birdlife, which we can savour as we journey slowly through the tranquil waterways before arriving at a local village which specialises in making local products. We learn how these specialities are made and of course try them for ourselves! Back on board, this evening we will be entertained by a Vietnamese Cultural Group whose performance highlights life on the Mekong Delta.

Included meals:

Breakfast, lunch and dinner PLUS selected onboard drinks

Day 15

Con Phuoc, Mekong Delta

Local Vietnamese lady steering boat on the Mekong Delta, An-Giang, Vietnam

Enjoy a relaxing morning sailing through the Mekong Delta, gleaning insights into life along this mighty waterway as we go. After lunch, we head ashore to Con Phuoc Island. Here we spend time with the local crafts-people who weave bamboo baskets in the traditional way. After showing off their skills, we try to master the art ourselves before taking a tuk-tuk ride through the peaceful village, meeting more of the local community along the way. Once back on board the RV Indochina Pandaw, or RV Bassac Pandaw, there’s time to freshen up before a delicious dinner is served in the light, airy restaurant.

Included meals:

Breakfast, lunch and dinner PLUS selected onboard drinks

Day 16

Chau Doc - Sam Mountain - Vietnam/Cambodia Border

This morning we dock alongside the picturesque border town of Chau Doc and travel by sampan to its famous floating markets. Although Vietnam’s main religions are Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism, there is a community of Vietnamese Muslims in Chau Doc, and we visit a local village to meet members of this community and observe their lifestyle. Next, we board minivans for a short drive to beautiful Sam Mountain, location of Phuoc Dien Tu, otherwise known as Hang Pagoda. We climb the 400 steps to the top of the pagoda, proclaimed an ‘official historic monument’ in 1980. Later, we return to our vessel and cruise the local canals before we drop anchor on the Vietnam / Cambodia border to go through immigration formalities.

Included meals:

Breakfast, lunch and dinner PLUS selected onboard drinks

Day 17

Phnom Penh, overnight

Impressive Royal Palace, Phnom Penh, capital of Cambodia

After a wonderful three days cruising the Mekong River, our time on board the RV Bassac Pandaw or RV Mekong Pandaw has sadly come to an end, and we disembark in Phnom Penh, where we visit the striking Royal Palace – the official residence of Cambodia’s King Norodom Sihamoni – built in 1866. We also have the privilege of viewing the Silver Pagoda, whose floor is covered with 5,000 silver tiles, and the magnificent, near life-size Buddha, made from solid gold and encrusted with almost 10,000 diamonds.

Despite the splendour and the optimism that you will no doubt observe in Cambodia, there is no escaping its dark recent history, in which Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge regime (1975-79) cost thousands of innocent people their lives. To learn more about these troubled times, we first visit Tuol Sleng (also known as S-21), the former high school turned prison where captives of the Khmer Rouge were held, before their fate at the Killing Fields awaited them. Today it is a museum, where the haunting faces of some 17,000 people who passed through its gates are displayed. Only seven survivors lived to tell the tale. From here we journey on to the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek, where a memorial provides an emotive yet chilling tribute to the fallen. This afternoon’s visit is a sobering and powerful cultural experience, providing us with an important insight into the resilience and spirit of the Cambodian people. Later in the afternoon we arrive at the Palace Gate Hotel, for our overnight stay.

Included meals:

Breakfast and lunch

Day 18

Siem Reap, 3 nights

Entrance to Bayon Temple, also known as South Gate in the complex of Angkor Wat near Siem Reap, Cambodia

Tour Highlight

Our journey to Siem Reap begins with transfers to the airport. It is here, that we explore Asia’s most famous and highly anticipated landmark, the temples of Angkor. This amazing monument was originally constructed as a Hindu temple dedicated to the God, Vishnu. This afternoon we visit the South Gate of Angkor where the statues of good and evil line the entrance, and the richly decorated Bayon, adorning the face of the Buddhist King Jayavarman VII. The afternoon sees us visit 10th century Hindu Temple, Phimeankas, the Terrace of Elephants and the Terrace of Leper Kings, located inside the walled enclosure of the Royal Palace of Angkor Thom. After an epic day, we finish with a sunset cruise along the moat of Angkor Thom. Our final three nights in Cambodia will be spent at the Borei Angkor Resort & Spa.

Included meals:


Day 19

Angkor Wat and Ta Prohm

Distinctive spires of Angkor Wat near Siem Reap Cambodia against a blue sky

Tour Highlight

Angkor Wat is synonymous with Cambodia, and the temple’s famous five spires are featured on the country’s national flag. For early risers amongst us, there is the opportunity to experience sunrise over this epic temple, at an additional cost. Following breakfast, we return to Angkor Wat, the world’s largest religious monument, to fully discover this enchanting temple, which features high classical style Khmer architecture. Spread across a massive site, we weave throughout the bewitching temple grounds, experiencing the alchemy of such incomprehensible designs. We close the morning’s adventure with a visit to the temple of Ta Prohm, where tree roots hold this spectacular shrine together. The afternoon is reserved for your own leisure, though the evening offers the option to visit the Phare Circus, which supports the development of Khmer youth through a programme of arts and performance.

Included meals:


Day 20

Siem Reap Freedom Day
