Vietnam and Cambodia are two mysterious lands that possess a distinct personality of fishing villages, temples, and stunning riverscapes. Rich with culture and history, you will experience local markets, landmarks (including UNESCO World Heritage sites), ancient ruins, and more. Plus, you will have many chances to interact with the locals, including school children, artisans, and even monks. With such interesting points of interest, Vietnam and Cambodia are two countries that provide you with a truly unique cruising experience.
Since the Mekong River is the only major waterway in Cambodia, the only kinds of vessels that can sail there are river ships. Aside from the unique, intimate atmosphere onboard these ships, you’ll be able to enjoy fabulous, regionally-inspired cuisine, matched perfectly by an attentive and well-trained staff. Typical Vietnam and Cambodia cruises are 7- to 14-nights in length. Many river cruise lines also provide you the option to add on a pre- or post-cruise extension.

You can spend your free time admiring the beautiful French colonial architecture or strolling through the city’s main shopping district. You might even be able to take a hands-on cooking class, or dine in a local restaurant.
Phnom Penh is the capital of Cambodia and located right on the water. A fun and unique way to take in this city is via a cyclo.

The following cruise lines offer Vietnam & Cambodia Vacations:
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.
Deluxe Cruise Lines
These cruise lines fit (quality and, usually, price-wise) somewhere in between Premium and Luxury cruise lines.
A country club casual atmosphere can be expected on these lines, as can be elegant accommodations and gourmet cuisine. These cruise lines are a great option for adults looking for a upscale, yet laid back, vacation.
Unique itineraries are often available on these cruise lines, as their small-to-mid-sized ships can visit ports of call that large ones can't get to.
The pricing on Azamara Club Cruises includes select beverages and pre-paid gratuities, while the pricing of Viking Ocean Cruises includes shore excursions and select beverages.
Specialty Cruise Lines
These cruise lines offer a truly unique vacation experience, with a wide range of possible amenities and itineraries. Some are expedition cruise lines, others have sailing yachts or are coastal ships.
On these types of cruise lines, there's usually a focus on a specific destination or theme. Itineraries are usually very destination intensive, aided by the fact that they're able to reach many ports of call that larger ships can't.
Expedition cruise lines are a great fit for adventure-seeking travelers, featuring exciting destinations like the Galapagos Islands, Antarctica, and the Norwegian coast. During the cruise, there will usually be plenty of interesting lectures given by experts on the destination being visited. Often, shore excursions are included in the cost of the cruise. In fact, some of these cruise lines have all-inclusive pricing. There's a definite focus on the ship's surrounding scenery, as well as opportunities to view wildlife in their natural habitat. Small, but comfortable, ships are commonplace here, with anywhere from basic to very luxurious public spaces, cuisine, and accommodations (depending on the cruise line and ship).
Sailing Yachts, sail-assisted motor ships, offer a really unique vacation experience. Accommodations and cuisine on these intimate vessels can be anywhere from good to fantastic, depending on the cruise line. Destinations offered by these cruise lines may include the Caribbean, Europe, Panama Canal, Tahiti, and Costa Rica.
Luxury Cruise Lines
When the finest cruise vacation is your top priority, this is the place to start.
On a luxury cruise line, guests experience highly personalized service, a more intimate (and usually formal) onboard experience, gourmet cuisine, well-appointed accommodations, and fantastic amenities.

All of these brands feature a version of all-inclusive pricing, and some of them have ships with all-suite accommodations. Although these cruise lines are usually more expensive than the rest, they also provide their guests with so much more, resulting in a fantastic value when considering all that's included.

The following are just a few of the more popular tour operators that offer Vietnam & Cambodia Vacations. Use the search box that's higher up on this page, or contact us, if you're interested in pricing, availablity and our special deals on other brand.
The tour operators that we list as offering a "Budget" product are those that tend to have pricing that is considered more economical, and as a result often include components (i.e. accommodations and tours) that are good but not quite top tier.
An escorted tour includes a professional guide, as opposed to being an independent (or self-guided) tour. Some escorted tour operators include a limited amount of time for guests to explore on their own, while others have tours that are completely escorted. Typically, just about your entire itinerary is included and planned for in an escorted tour package. You don't have to worry about what you're going to see and don't have to make reservations (for each component of the trip) with multiple tour operators - this option allows for you to just leave it to the professionals and enjoy yourself.
Depending on the tour operator, as well as on the specific tour, some tours are private (just you and your traveling companions, if you have any) while others are with other travelers that booked the same tour. In the latter case, some tour operators offer small groups (which tend to be more expensive, but also more intimate and exclusive) while some have larger groups that travel together (which provides a very social atmosphere, as you can meet many other people).
Also referred to as self-guided travel, independent travel gives you the freedom to do things at your own pace. You don't have a guide with you like you would on an escorted tour, but you can make your own schedule and choose your own itinerary.
This option is usually significantly less expensive than an escorted tour that includes similar components; however, cost and quality simply depends on the tour you select as both budget and luxury tour operators offer this type of travel.
These tour operators give customers the option of picking and choosing pieces, creating a vacation that fits their preferences. Whether it's selecting specific hotels, or visiting specific destinations, the options are plentiful and sure to please you! We can arrange for as customized and specific of a tour that you would like, whether it be escorted, independent, or a bit of both.
