Immerse yourself in centuries of art, culture, and history on a journey through Vietnam and Cambodia that features a Mekong River cruise aboard the opulent Jahan

Take a classic expedition along the Mekong River from Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) in Vietnam to Phnom Penh, Cambodia, and beyond. Cruise in Old World comfort aboard a colonial-style ship finished in brass and teak by skilled local craftsmen and maintained to the highest standards. During the voyage, stop along the Mekong Delta to see floating markets, fishing towns, small riverside villages, and more. Admire Phnom Penh's Royal Palace and the fine collection at the National Museum. Also see the pre-Angkorian temple of Wat Hanchey and visit a local school. Conclude in Siem Reap, the gateway to the ancient Khmer empire, to discover the UNESCO-designated temple complex of Angkor.

An optional Ho Chi Minh City prelude and an optional Laos postlude will be offered.
