Timeless Wonders of Vietnam, Cambodia & the Mekong

Experience the resilience and romance of Vietnam & Cambodia. 

Two of the most beautiful, historic, and friendly places in all of Asia, dynamic Vietnam and pastoral Cambodia are intriguing studies in contrast. Each possesses its own unique charm and social traditions, its own tragic history and complex past. In many ways, a visit here is less about the sights you see and more about the experiences you have and the people you meet along the way. It all makes for a fascinating, rewarding, and multi-layered travel experience.

Your journey starts in Ho Chi Minh City—once known as Saigon and the “Paris of the Orient”—now a bustling economic boom-town that offers a heady mixture of old and new. Delve into the Vietnam War’s infamous Cu Chi tunnels before boarding your comfortable ship. Visit artisan workshops and a lively floating market via a traditional wooden sampan, as well as a tribal village and local fish farm. After crossing the border into Cambodia, enjoy an exhilarating cyclo tour of the capital city, Phnom Penh, and stop at the city’s Genocide Museum to learn more about the dark events of the 20th century. Take a scenic cruise to see a “floating village” on the Tonle Sap River, and visit a hilltop monastery where local monks will bestow a special Buddhist blessing upon you.

One of the many highlights of your Uniworld journey will be two full days at Cambodia’s spectacular UNESCO-designated Angkor Wat temple complex, one of the world’s largest and most important archaeological sites and the former epicenter of the Khmer empire. Explore Ta Prohm, with its massive stones smothered under the roots of giant banyan trees, and Bayon Temple, famous for its immense and enigmatic stone faces. Your journey concludes in historic Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, where your city tour features the former prison known as the “Hanoi Hilton” by American POWs, a cyclo tour of the colonial district, and a traditional water puppet show.
