Kampong Cham

Situated on the banks of the mighty Mekong River, Kampong Cham is an excellent starting destination for your next Asia river cruise. Best known for its colorful French colonial architecture, religious sites, and close proximity to Koh Pen and Phnom Penh. Kampong Cham is filled with a unique and authentic atmosphere not found elsewhere in Cambodia. You can expect a city with less traffic and crowds, as Kampong Chen is a relatively lesser-traveled destination. Plus, being a much smaller city, you can easily get around on foot, as most of the restaurants and main sights are located so close to each other. What you can discover in this quaint city includes markets, riverfront beauty, bamboo bridges, and more! It’s a great way to have an unforgettable cultural experience when visiting Cambodia.

River Cruise Lines

Becoming more and more popular, a river cruise is an immerse and destination-focused vacation experience, on a small and luxurious vessel.

River cruises sail through the inland waterways of some of the world's most interesting vacation destinations (i.e. Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and North America), and provide their guests with a greater opportunity to spend time visiting more unique ports of call than a traditional cruise typically would.

Because the destination is the star of a river cruise, (typically guided) shore excursions are included at no additional charge by many River cruise lines. There are usually many interesting lectures given during the cruise, by experts on the history and culture of the region being visited.

Among the famous rivers that one may take a river cruise on are the Rhine, Mississippi, Seine, Danube, Mekong, Nile, Yangtze, Amazon and Douro.
