Joining our full 7-night Mekong Expedition Cruise allows us to share with you all the mysteries and wonders we have discovered between the Mekong River, Tonle Sap Lake and among the diverse cultures thriving in our midst. From December to August, you will see more of the Cambodian stretch of the Mekong and along the Tonle Sap River, a more rural and scenic area of Cambodia, untouched by tourists.

August to November offers a different experience of the Mekong life, allowing you to meet Khmer farmers, Buddhist monks and our entrepreneurial friends in Vietnam’s wet markets along the way. Travel leisurely back in time across this legendary landscape and visit the Tonle Sap Lake, a spectacular freshwater lake that that is inhabited by more than three million people living around its bank.
