There is no better way to uncover the mysteries of Asia than a river cruise on its main artery the magnificent Mekong river. This mighty river melds the rich cultures of Cambodia and Vietnam in what was known as Indochina. Today, South East Asia, has an allure, intensity, and exoticism few travel destinations match.
The Toum Tiou is all revved up, spruced up, and ready for you at the Phnom Penh Port. Enjoy a sumptuous lunch as the ship cruises to Kampong Tralach to visit its wonderful Vihara.
To reach this magnificent edifice, we cross Kampong Tralach Krom village along a small road perpendicular to the river, walk along some gorgeous stretches of emerald rice paddy as we leave the river behind.
We return to Toum Tiou. We cruise gently towards Koh Chen (Chinese island). A mouth-watering dinner is served and the cruise ship moors overnight.
We arrive at Koh Chen, a small village whose inhabitants specialize in silver and copper smiting. They produce ornamental items, including delicately engraved tropical fruit which are used in traditional ceremonies or at weddings. You will be able to catch a glimpse of the distant hills of Cambodia's ancient capital – Oudong – and its royal stupas when you are a few kilometers away from the ferry.

Chau Doc is a remote border town and cultural melting pot of Chinese, Cham and Khmer communities. The city is situated at the intersection of a tributary linking the Bassac and the Mekong River. What Chau Doc lacks in size, it makes up in colours. Lots of it. Vivid and vibrant. Even its store fronts are painted in warm pastel shades. We are taken on a short panoramic tour of the city. This is the perfect opportunity to feel the throbbing vibration of the local markets.
