February 15, 2025

Welcome to Ho Chi Minh City, still affectionately referred to by locals as Saigon, and Vietnam’s former capital. Once known as the “Paris of the Orient,” it is now an industrial, cultural, and educational hub. Please feel free to arrive at any time today as your time is your own. Hotel: Sofitel Saigon Plaza


February 16, 2025

Always bustling, Ho Chi Minh City is a city of contrasts blending old and new and east and west. In the morning, we’ll explore some of the city’s most famous landmarks, including the former Presidential Palace, the Central Post Office, Notre Dame Cathedral, and the War Remnants Museum. In the afternoon, we’ll visit Cu Chi, an immense underground network built during the Vietnam War. (B, L) Hotel: Sofitel Saigon Plaza

February 17, 2025

In the morning, we’ll visit Ben Thanh Market—one of the oldest and most iconic structures in Ho Chi Minh City. Then, we’ll transfer by motorcoach from Ho Chi Minh City to our beautiful ship, the AmaDara, at My Tho Port for our luxury river cruise. We’ll join together for a Welcome Dinner as the ship cruises to Cai Be. (B, L, D) Ship: AmaDara


February 18, 2025

Today, we can take a local boat to Cai Be. We’ll have an opportunity to visit candy and rice paper-making workshops and the historic Kiet Old House. Later in the day, we journey to Sa Dec, a sprawling town on the Mekong Delta, where French writer Marguerite Duras spent part of her youth. We will visit the colorful market, Cao Dai Temple, the home to a unique religion, Caodaism, in Southern Vietnam. It is a fusion of Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, and Confucianism. (B, L, D)


February 19, 2025

Today we’ll enjoy a visit to Tan Chau, a small Mekong River town unspoiled by tourism. Be treated to an authentic experience on a traditional “xe­loi” (trishaw) ride around the town, with stops at silk­making and rattan mat workshops, followed by a boat ride through the narrow channels of the Mekong River to “Evergreen Island.” Alternatively, you can take a boat ride to Evergreen Island and return to Tan Chau, where you will visit a rattan mat workshop. Later in the day, we’ll cruise from Vietnam to the Cambodian border en route to Phnom Penh. (B, L, D)


February 20, 2025

This morning’s excursion takes us to Cambodia’s infamous Killing Fields and the Khmer Rouge’s grim Tuol Sleng S21 detention center (Genocide Museum). After lunch on board, we will explore the highlights of the city, followed by a visit to the Royal Palace, the spectacular Silver Pagoda, and the National Museum, which has an outstanding collection of Khmer crafts. Alternatively, you may wish to shop for unique treasures at the bustling, yellow-­colored Central Market after your visit to Royal Place. After returning to the ship, enjoy Khmer folk dancing performed by local children in the Saigon Lounge. (B, L, D)

While here, be treated to a memorable Buddhist Blessing Ceremony at a monastery. You may walk around Oudong’s monastery or take an active walking tour to see panoramic views of the Oudong plain. In Kampong Tralach, you will have a truly authentic excursion – an oxcart ride through a local village. Later in the day, experience Phnom Penh via a tuk ride and be enchanted by the city’s French Colonial architecture and tree­lined boulevards set amidst monumental Angkorian. (B, L, D)

In the morning, we set sail for Oknhatey Village. Oknhatey is the “Silk Island,” located on the lush banks of the Mekong River and known for its rich tradition of silk weaving. While here, we will visit a local elementary school and observe traditional silk weaving, an art that has been preserved for centuries. Our cruise continues to sail to Angkor Ban. (B, L, D)

February 23, 2025

This morning, you can go on a walking tour of Angkor Ban, one of the few villages in Cambodia that was not destroyed under the Khmer Rouge regime in the 1970s. Here, people still live in their traditional wooden abodes and keep their old cultural traditions alive. Hundreds of wooden houses stand intact on stilts, shaded with banana trees, among the hustle and bustle of the daily agricultural on­going of the local villagers. After visiting here, the ship sets sail for Kampong Cham, where we will go on an afternoon excursion by motorcoach to the Twin Mountains, known as Phnom Pros and Phnom Srei (male and female mountains). In the annals of Khmer legend, the twin mountains were formed as the result of a competition between the men and women of an ancient Cambodian kingdom to resolve which gender would be responsible for wedding proposals. We’ll cap the day off with a festive Farewell Dinner on board. (B, L, D)


February 24, 2025

This morning, we’ll disembark in Kampong Cham and transfer by motorcoach to Siem Reap, the gateway to the Angkor Archaeological Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the former capital of the Khmer Empire.

February 25, 2025

We’ll begin our morning exploration of the temple complex at Angkor Wat, the most iconic of all Angkorian temples built by King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century to honor the Hindu god Vishnu. An afternoon excursion takes us to see the fascinating jewel in the crown of Angkorian art,  , which means “Citadel of Women,” as it has been said that the carving is too fine to have been done by the hand of man. During the evening, we’ll be treated to a special “Apsara Dancing Show” at oour hotel, featuring local Cambodian/Khmer folk dancers. (B, D) Hotel: Sofitel Angkor Phokeethra Golf & Spa Resort

Later in the day, take a short flight to Hanoi, the capital city of Vietnam. (B) Hotel: Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi
