Itinerary

Your journey begins today amid the vibrant bustle of Ho Chi Minh City. Upon arrival in the city, be met at the airport and transferred to My Tho Port where you will board your boutique river ship, the RV Apsara. Tonight, enjoy a special Welcome Dinner on board and get to know your crew and fellow travellers. Stay Seven Nights: Mekong River, RV Apsara (L/D)

Visit Cai Be and its surrounds by tender boats as you view local life on the river and along its banks. After, go ashore to see the French Gothic cathedral. You'll then visit a manufacturer of rice paper to learn how it's made. Afterwards, take a boat ride to the charming town of Sa Dec for a guided tour. Voyage by small boat to the old house of Huynh Thuy Le, once the lover of French writer Marguerite Duras, who penned her best-selling novel, The Lover, about their affair. (B/L/D)

Go ashore for a rickshaw tour of Tan Chau, a sleepy town almost untouched by tourism. One of the largest silk-weaving centres in Vietnam, you can observe how silk is woven in the local workshops. After, take a small-boat ride to discover rural life on Evergreen Island. Later, navigate narrow channels by local boats and pass by floating fish farms and stilt houses that defy gravity and lean haphazardly upon each other. The rest of today is then spent on board. This afternoon, perhaps attend a fruit-carving demonstration or learn the art of creating Vietnamese spring rolls while border formalities are carried out. Cross into Cambodia and cruise overnight towards the capital, Phnom Penh. (B/L/D)

Today begins your exploration of the city of Phnom Penh. After breakfast, learn of the atrocities inflicted upon Cambodians during Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge regime in the 1970s. Explore the Killing Fields, where you'll find the Memorial Stupa, a glass monument erected in memory of the thousands of Cambodians who lost their lives. You'll also visit Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum. After lunch on board, disembark and visit the spectacular Royal Palace, delighting in its dazzling white and gold architecture. Then head to the glorious Silver Pagoda, set on the southern side of the palace complex. (B/L/D)

Travel by coach to Oudong, the former capital of Cambodia, for your unique Insider Experience. Afterwards, you will visit Koh Chen and explore the open-air copperware workshops. Return to the ship and enjoy a free afternoon in fascinating Phnom Penh, or perhaps enhance your time by choosing one of Travelmarvel's select experiences. Options include a tuk tuk ride to uncover the sights and sounds of Phnom Penh, or a trip to gain a greater appreciation of the local beers at the Kingdom Brewery. (B/L/D)

Insider Experience: Visit a Buddhist monastery in Oudong where you will have the opportunity to partake in a Buddhist blessing ceremony.

After breakfast, you'll awake in the town of Oknha Tey. Disembark and board a local tuk tuk for a village tour. Discover village life from the local homes to the rice fields and the faces of the friendly locals. Disembark your local transport and continue on foot for a more in-depth exploration of the village. Enjoy lunch on board as the ship sets sail for Angkor Ban. In the afternoon, as you sail along the mighty Mekong, enjoy some time at leisure. (B/L/D)

This morning, enjoy an guided tour of Angkor Ban, a village awash in stories of Cambodia's cultural history, and one of the few traditional villages that survived the Khmer Rouge regime. After lunch, enjoy your Insider Experience. (B/L/D)

Insider Experience: This afternoon you will enjoy an authentic tuk tuk tour of the agricultural island of Koh Pen.

Disembark in Kampong Cham after breakfast in the Mekong Restaurant and transfer to the airport in Siem Reap for your flight home. (B)

First Cambodian Experience 3 , VIC, Australia, Aug 2017
Fantastic trip. Having travelled Asia many times including Vietnam 10 times this was our first trip on the River Cruise 7 days and Cambodia. River cruise was a 9.5 out of 10. Great everything including cruise, meals, excursions and time on board. I am ex Navy so having beautiful in cabin bathrooms and large beds great. Would highly recommend. Only issue ...read more we had was hot days sometimes the aircon cut out mid afternoons but after resets no problem. Cambodia a great place with nice people. Extremely sad visiting the killing fields but a must just to see what these people went through.
We highly recommend this cruise 1 , NSW, Australia, Sep 2015
We loved the cruise, and enjoyed every aspect of it. The tour director was excellent ,so friendly and helpful and always gave 110 percent . The cruising director and staff were also excellent. We will highly recommend this cruise. Thank you.
Enjoyed every aspect of the cruise 1 , NSW, Australia, Sep 2015
We loved the cruise, and enjoyed every aspect of it. The tour director was excellent, so friendly and helpful and always gave 110 percent. The cruising director and staff were also excellent. My husband suffers from moderate dementia and because of the consideration of staff and passengers we both had a wonderful cruising experience. We will highly ...read more recommend this cruise. Thank you.
Overall everything was excellent 1 , NSW, Australia, Aug 2015
Overall everything was excellent. Just a couple of things which may help. The shopping time was very short, 15mins, except in the grand plaza Phnom Penh which was about 45-60mins. Early morning Tai Chi or Yoga classes on deck would have been great. Or one which relates to the area that is being visited. I was aware that extra accommodation could be ...read more arranged either side of the cruise but not tours, so additional information on that would have been great. I do think the staff on board are over worked and are expected to work very long hours with 10-11 month shifts, I know that it is considered a privileged job with good pay but I would also feel comfortable knowing that they do receive free time to visit family and relax. With the name tags each person should be asked their preferred name, my husband hasn't been called Gregory for 50 years. I noticed some people had preferred names, perhaps I overlooked that question so apologies if I did. I will definitely consider travelling with Travelmarvel again.
Excellent food, premium wine available needs review 0 , VIC, Australia, Jul 2015
Select tours offered but not of interest. Food was excellent. Wine quality included was adequate but premium wine available needs review. I bought a bottle that had obviously been exposed to heat. The premium collection if it is to be offered needs to be kept in a wine fridge.
Really enjoyed our first river cruise, fantastic work GJ! 0 , Australia, Jun 2014
Georgie was fantastic. I had almost given up on the river cruise until I spoke to her. She was very patient and provided great service. My wife and I really enjoyed our first river cruise.
