Highlights on a Mekong River Cruise
Highlights on your Mekong river cruise will include a visit to Cambodia’s Angkor Wat, one of the largest religious monuments in the world, spread over 162.6 hectares and originally constructed as a Hindu temple dedicated to the god Vishnu for the Khmer Empire, it was gradually transformed into a Buddhist temple towards the end of the 12th century, built in the jungle near Siem Reap. The best time to visit is at sunrise or sunset to avoid both heat and crowds. Hanoi, no other destination better represents all the contrasts that exist in modern Vietnam. A French-conceived colonial city, Hanoi was the capital of French Indochina from 1902 to 1954. It boasts one of the most beautiful panoramas in the region and has more cultural sites than any other city in Vietnam, featuring more than 600 pagodas and temples. Visit Ha Long Bay known for its turquoise waters and towering limestone islands topped with rainforest, take a Junk boat tour overnight to sail around the stunning Cát Bà National Park. And Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) has come a long way from its humble beginnings as a small fishing village, it is now Vietnam’s largest city. From the enduring, narrow alleyways to the wide, historic boulevards, Ho Chi Minh City has an identity that is all its own. Historic French architecture adorns much of the city and prominent landmarks, such as Reunification Palace or Notre-Dame Cathedral, can be found in its jewel-like city center. Ho Chi Minh City’s beauty and vitality are infectious.See All Cruises
