Overview

Book online and enjoy exclusive savings on G Adventures 8 Day Vietnam and Cambodia: Mekong, Local Markets & Secluded Islands. Hop, skip, and jump your way along the road less travelled on this eight-day, hostel-based adventure through Vietnam and Cambodia. Explore the secrets of the Mekong Delta on the back of a motorbike, mingle with locals by boat at Chau Doc's floating markets and kick back on the beach on the secluded island of Koh Rong Samloen. And don't forget the food! Visit a crab market in Kep for lunch pulled straight from the sea, chow down on a traditional Khmer meal in the Chambok...read more community, and sample everything at street stalls and markets along the way. “Yum!” you say? Oh yeah.

Itinerary

Arrive at any time, and choose to kick back at the hostel, or head out to explore the city before meeting up with fellow Roamies in the evening. Hungry? Let's head out on a street food walk sampling the best of local dishes and delicacies Ho Chi Minh City has to offer. Delish! Stay: Phan Anh Backpacker (D)

Ready to hit the road? Catch your private ride to Chau Doc in the famed Mekong delta then let's go full on local! Jump on the back of a motorbike and explore. Zoom up to the mysterious Hang Pagoda on the slopes of the mountain and mix with the many pilgrims who visit here. It's time to get zen–inhale the ever-burning incense, observe the rituals and dissolve into the background of chanting and temple bells. After, ride up to the peak of the sacred Sam mountain and settle into a gently swinging hammock. Gaze in awe at the stunning views at sunset over the surrounding delta. No need to pinch yourself, you really are here! Stay: Little Saigon Hostel (B)

Up late with your mates? Shake it off as today it's on! Hop in for a sunrise boat trip at the floating markets of Chau Doc and watch river life come alive. Weave between the boat vendors selling all manner of wares, food and drink–feel free to grab a tea or hot noodles from one of the hawkers. Wave at fishermen and ferries shuttling kids to school, stop in a small village and visit a fish farm. Tired? No worries you can catch a nap on the drive to the Cambodian border before heading to the fishing village of Kep. Follow in the footsteps of legendary Anthony Bourdain and explore the famous seafood market. Your CEO will pick the best crabs pulled directly from the sea and you'll dine on pepper crab on the spot. It doesn't get any more real than this. Ready for some down time? Us too–let's head to the hostel in Kampot and kick back for a bevvie (or three.) Cheers! Stay: Bamboo Bungalow (B/L)

Freedom! Today is all yours to explore the sleepy town of Kampot. Looking to chill? That's easy–wander along the river and jump in for a swim, take a yoga class or hang at the hostel with your new-found friends. Want a bit more activity? No problem, your CEO has lots to suggest. Spice things up with a visit to a pepper farm, explore the countryside on a cycling tour or sit back with a beverage on a sunset river cruise. Just don't forget to catch up on your posts–EVERYONE is waiting to see what you do next. Enjoy! Stay: Bamboo Bungalow (B)

Ready for adventure? Head out to Monivong Bokor NP, a wild area known for its palace ruins overtaken by nature and spotted with stunning works of graffiti. Your CEO will lead you around this bizarre contrast of lush jungle and ruins, and jaw dropping coastal views. Now, are you ready for the beach? Of course you are! Travel to Serendipity pier and catch a ferry to the remote island of Koh Rong. Drop your bags at the hostel and head directly to the beach. Searching for paradise? Guess what, you're already there. Stay: Mad Monkey Koh Rong (B)

Trust us, Koh Rong Island is one of those places you'll talk about for years; the island boasts pristine white sandy beaches, warm crystal-clear ocean waters, a hot tropical climate, and is off the beaten track. No need to pinch yourself, yes–you really are here. This is the island of your dreams and you'll have the entire day to enjoy it. Dive into the calm waters of the Gulf of Thailand, then stretch out and catch same rays. Feel free to chill in a hammock under a palm with a cold drink. No matter what angle you snap your pic, it's absolute perfection. You totally deserve this! Stay: Mad Monkey Koh Rong (B)

Jump back on the ferry to the mainland and swing by a few small villages that make up the Chambok community. We'll set you up with a local guide to get an insider's peak at daily life in these rural villages. Feeling hungry and creative? The local women will get you sorted with a delicious Khmer lunch and then teach you how to make traditional necklaces and bracelets–perfect souvenirs to bring home for your friends. Ready for the big city again? Excellent, as your last stop is Phnom Penh with fantastic nightlife to dive right into. Are you ready to party? Dumb question. Stay: Pooltop Phnom Penh (B/L)

Say goodbye to your Roamies and depart at any time, or keep the adventure going by heading north to Siem Reap and the iconic temples of Angkor Wat on the next leg of this epic adventure. (B)
