Itineraries

Day 1: Ho Chi Minh - My Tho - Cai Be (D)

Bid farewell to the hustle and bustle of Saigon as we travel 70 kilometers south by land to My Tho to embark your boutique ship. We will be served a refreshing welcome drink as the ship steadily glides along the Mekong. We will bathe in the fading sunset on the balcony followed by a briefing at the lounge. Later, a welcome dinner awaits us.
When approaching Cai Be, the ship drops anchor to moor midstream where the river is several kilometers wide. Overnight in Cai Be.

Meals: D

Accommodation: Jahan cruise

Day 2: Cai Be - Sa Dec - Tan Chau (B, L, D)

The day - in fact everyday - starts with an invigorating tai-chi lesson on the sundeck, just as the sun begins its gentle glow. Coffee and tea awaits the early bird.
The day's tour starts with a visit to Cai Be's boisterous and colorful floating market on board a traditional sampan (a flat bottomed traditional Vietnamese wooden boat). During the languid ride, discover breathtaking landscapes along the river and quaff the rustic life on the Mekong Delta.
The cruise will halt intermittently to allow us to observe how rice paste, rice cookies and coconut candies are made, along with the Longan fruit drying process. After touring the canals, we head to an ancient house surrounded by fruit orchards before heading to the ship for lunch.
In the afternoon we cruise to Sa Dec. Upon arrival, we embark a traditional sampan* to tour Binh Thanh Island and its man-made canals. Here, every villager is involved in the process of making rattan mat and this give us the chance to interact with the old local people. We then board the Ship for a tranquil evening cruise towards Tan Chau. The Ship will moor midstream overnight near Tan Chau.

Meals: B, L, D

Accommodation: Jahan cruise

Day 3: Tan Chau – Border crossing – Phnom Penh (B, L, D)

Welcome to the fish sanctuary of Vietnam. Begin your day with a hearty breakfast at the Indochine Dining Hall or in the quiet sanctuary of your balcony. Brace yourself for a short excursion in Chau Doc, a pleasant town near the Cambodian border with sizeable Chinese, Kinh and Khmer communities. Firstly, the journey takes you to the “evergreen” islands where you will be thrilled to learn the life of the locals.
The inhabitants of these islands live on houses poised on high stilts - a centuries-old tradition in this part of the Mekong Delta.
We stop to visit a fish farm located in the Tan Chau canal - this farm consists of floating houses and the villagers make their living by cultivating fish. You continue by boat to Tan Chau pier, disembark here and stroll around this colorful local market with lots of regional products. You return to the cruise Ship after your market visit. Overnight we anchor midstream near Phnom Penh.

Meals: B, L, D

Accommodation: Jahan cruise

Day 4: Phnom Penh (B, L, D)

Phnom Penh was once the Paris of the East. Despite its rapid development, it has retained a lot of its rustic charm and elegance. After breakfast, we will be captivated by a comprehensive lecture on Cambodias modern history. This will be followed by a city tour of this dynamic, historical capital city of Cambodia which has managed to preserve huge slices of its French colonial allure. Sightseeing in the morning will include visiting the dazzling white and gold edifice of the Royal Palace and the Silver Pagoda, and witnessing exceptionally beautiful Khmer craft at the National Museum.
After lunch at a local restaurant, we will visit the Genocide Museum and the Killing Field in town. Be prepared to be heart wrenched by this stark reminder of the genocide that transpired during Cambodia's Khmer Rouge regime.
We go back to the ship after our museum visit. Take a rest on your cabin balcony or the lounge and get prepared for an exciting evening event. The evening starts with a variety of cocktail served on the sun deck. Take a seat and enjoy the following Apsara dance performance. Experience the brilliance and richness of this culture, the soothing sounds of traditional music, the calming scent of incense sticks and a barbeque on the sundeck. It is indeed a truly marvelous experience, dining in the open with the stars and the moon as our companions.
Including breakfast, lunch and dinner. Overnight in Phnom Penh. In the middle of the night around 1am we depart already during a night cruise to Kampong Chnnang. This region is 100km away from Phnom Penh.

Meals: B, L, D

Accommodation: Jahan cruise

Day 5: Phnom Penh - Kampong Chang - Silversmith Village (B, L, D)

Before the sun peeks over the horizon, the cruiser sets sail towards Kampong Chhnang (we leave Phnom Penh after midnight) and the Tonle Sap River - an amazingly narrow river - which glides through leafy swaths of the Southeast Asian jungle. We are greeted by cacophonous children who waive enthusiastically early in the morning when they bring their livestock for a bath in the meandering Tonle Sap River.
Then we approach Kampong Chhnang, Cambodia's "waterworld" where everything is on stilts balanced on rich water rich soil- it's an awesome sight whilst practicing Tai Chi on the deck.
Here we take a motorboat excursion to the landing, followed by a short bus trip to see the Khmer-styled pottery at the Aundaung Russey village. Then, it is back to the river for an adventurous motorboat excursion to the wetlands, floating houses and fish farms in the region.
We then return to the ship for lunch whilst cruising the narrow and meandering Tonle Sap. We will cruise toward Prek K'dam where we will take a walk through the silversmith village of Koh Chen where the entire community of villagers is involved in making various silver items for sale.
Back onboard, the ship sails back towards Phnom Penh again and will moor for overnight midstream near Phnom Penh. Including breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Meals: B, L, D

Accommodation: Jahan cruise

Day 6: Kampong Cham (B, L, D)

We will depart before the break of dawn from Phnom Penh with a stop at the little known Chong Koh silk weaving village. We will then return to the ship and will cruise past the Mekong's tranquil villages, exhilarating river life and sun-hardened fishermen on their make shift boats.
We will tour the rural Angkor Ban village where time stood still. We are transported back a hundred years into an era unsullied by modernity. The houses here are truly rustic, made by hand and without any concrete. But most of all, we feel overwhelmed by the unbridled warmth of the villagers.
Travelers can take part in the daily activities of the villagers to experience village life first hand. Then, we are back to the ship to cruise towards Kampong Cham. Overnight in Kampong Cham.

Meals: B, L, D

Accommodation: Jahan cruise

Day 7: Wat Hanchey - Kampong Cham (B, L, D)

We will wake up in the small hours of the morning, truly energized to embark on a land journey to the pre-Angkorian temple of Wat Hanchey. Travelers either take a motor-taxi or climb the 291 steps to the top. Located at the top of a hill overlooking the river, it offers one of the most breath-taking views in Cambodia. Built in the 8th century, this ancient structure, together with a bigger and newer addition underscores the superb architecture of the Chenla Empire which predates the mighty Angkor temple complex. We even get to engage in light banter with some of the monks in the area. We will return to the ship to witness a blessing ceremony performed by orange-clad local monks.
When the tide allows, we will enjoy a surprise sojourn in our zodiacs (inflatable boats) to the nearby beach to swim in the tea-colored Mekong River, an experience that will, no doubt, dominate dinner conversations in the weeks to come.
We will then cruise towards Kampong Cham to visit Wat Nokor, a wat built within the ruins of an ancient temple which holds a timeless story. On the way back to the ship, we will visit an orphanage. Along the way, we will have to maneuver a 2-kilometer rickety bamboo bridge. Our sense of balance lies in the balance.

Meals: B, L, D

Accommodation: Jahan cruise

Day 8: Kampong Cham - Siem Reap (B)

We will disembark the ship at after breakfast and boarding a coach at 9:00am for a transfer from Kampong Cham to the drop off point in Siem Reap. We get to munch on snacks and enjoy cold drinks along the journey. We will stop briefly at Skon, known as Spiderville for its fried spiders, a delicacy in this country then we will arrive in Siem Reap in the early afternoon.

Meals: B

Accommodation: N/A

This was the first river cruise we've taken, and the best cruise we've ever been on (altogether we've taken about 12 ocean cruises). We were on an 18 cabin boat with beautiful cabins, and with spacious showers, far larger than any we've seen on previous cruises. The cruise director was exceptionally good, and the food quality was excellent. The fact that the boat was small enabled us to go from Ho Chi Minh City to a variety of small, out of the way villages as well as larger cities such as Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. Everything was well-organized and the day trips were limited to mornings and/or afternoons, so that we had time to recover and eat lunch on the boat.

This one was on the top list of Top Mekong Cruises, and for us, it truly matched with what we expect. The Jahan cruise is high-class level, and the lower deck cabin provides us the sight of the Mekong. The service was really satisfying, and the staff are gentle and attentive. The silver service was also excellent with savory food, especially for buffet and BBQ. It felt like we were having a private party with 15 of us and more than 40 staff. No phone is available in the dining room, while Wifi is only provided in the Lounge area, but it doesn't matter. During our trip, Tea was our guide. He was passionate and had deep knowledge about his country. Thanks to him, we could understand more about Cambodia’s background and the people. It was an incredible trip as we experienced a part of Cambodian people’s life. We also even got a rare chance when we were invitied to a village’s party we visited and we were treated as honored guests.

This Jahan cruises's design reminisce the Indian Raj. It sails wonderfully between Saigon and Siem Reap. They must had put much thought on the ship, from large to small stuffs. And it created a extremely good feeling for the guests, despite of small squabble along the trail. But with all of those aside, the journey across Tonle Sap like near the end of the trip was what we had been expecting. We had been warned by the cruise that there might be changes to the itinerary, depended on the low-water level, and, it happened. Our second deck room had reasonable space and it had everything we expected from a luxurious hotel. The shower had plenty of hot water, but with no bath. There were many power outlets, allowing us to recharged our camera and computer, including adapters if necessary. In spite of having no TV, Wifi was available. All rooms had air-conditioner, though there were some hiccups, probably with the system somewhere else during the ride. We had three varied meals each day, and as the trip went on, there are more and more cries about “Too much food”. Coffee, tea, and water were continuously used without paying, but we had to pay for soft and alcoholic drinks. Every day was filled with lots of events. Coffee and Tai Chi practicing at 6:00am every morning. Next, we visited islands, fishing hamlets, farms,... after breakfast. On a full excursions day in Phnom Penh, we came to the Royal Palace and museum, then we had lunch at a local restaurant. There were variety of informative, and also comfortable events. Some events were even excluded to have breakfast in our room with no charge and come to the spa for massage.
