Experience the full history of Mekong life, meeting Khmer farmers, Buddhist monks and our entrepreneurial friends in Vietnam’s kaleidoscopic wet markets along the way. Travel by skiff along Bassac Canal to Chau Doc floating market then head off by van to Long Son Pagoda atop Sam Mountain. Ask the monks about their age-old Buddhist practices. Enjoy an optional 18 kilometers bike ride on Long Khanh Island or take a rickshaw ride to visit Tan Chau Market with chef. Admire dexterous Khmer artisans dyeing and weaving kroma, the ubiquitous item no Khmer lives without. All of this and more on this 8-day cruise across Cambodia and Vietnam.
