AVVSZW - Mekong River Experience Ho Chi Minh City to Siem Reap

Think Southeast Asia is just beautiful, beautiful landscapes? There's a lot more to it. (Though, the landscapes are indeed crazy-beautiful.) On this eight-day river cruise, you'll hop aboard bikes, tuk tuks, or local boats to get around and see rice paddies, monasteries, and local businesses. The magic of the Mekong aside, river cruising gives you a view unlike any other, with visits to the Cai Be floating market, the fishing port of Kampong Chhnang, and stilt villages like Chnok Tru, where you'll learn about fish farming, pottery, and sugar palm production before wandering through the local markets.
