  • Day 4

    Get up early and have breakfast while taking a Mekong boat to a local market. You’ll go on two feet and tour the region, seeing the odd church, coconut factory, and market. There will be an exciting cycling tour around Cau Ke in the neighboring province of Tra Vinh for the remainder of the day. Being one of the last provinces in Vietnam to have Khmer culture, Tra Vinh has relatively unusual scenery, cuisine, and architecture. En route to the bike trip are expansive vegetable gardens, rice fields, and ornate Khmer-style temples. It is one of the most genuine and stunning regions in southern Vietnam. Enjoying a variety of home-cooked Cambodian cuisines is the tour’s culinary highlight. After that, you spend the night back at Coco Riverside Lodge.

You’ll have supper and sundowners back on board.

  • Day 8

    Following breakfast, you will board a speedboat to leave the hotel, cross the border into Cambodia, and arrive in Phnom Penh.

Upon arrival, you will be brought to your hotel so you may change before beginning your tour of Phnom Penh’s contemporary history. This afternoon, you will see some of the most moving locations from Cambodia’s recent tragic past. You are free to explore at your own pace this evening.
