Vietnam is a country overwhelming to the senses; the smells, the heat, the traffic, the food, the beautiful beaches and scenery.  Liberated from years of war, occupation and isolation, the Vietnamese are focused firmly on the future and are revealed as a people of great charm and dynamism. Influenced by Chinese and French culture, they have maintained a strong sense of their own uniqueness while embracing new outside influences.   Today Cambodia is symbolised by awesome Angkor Wat, the largest manmade religious structure in the world and one of the most breathtaking sights you will experience.   Cambodia is also home to unspoilt beaches, pristine forests and beautiful colonial cities but it is the gentle, polite and friendly nature of the Khmer people which makes Cambodia such a memorable destination.   For those that have time to extend and add to this perfect holiday,  join us on a classic and captivating 8 day river journey aboard luxurious Heritage Line Jayavarman cruise from Siem Reap to Saigon,  which features cultural heritage, royal architecture, ancient traditions and insights into rural Cambodia and Vietnam.

Siem Reap to Saigon

This cruise is a perfect addition to our 12 night tour of Vietnam and Cambodia . The majestic Jayavarman is considered the father in Heritage Line’s “family” of cruise ships. This vessel was named after Angkor’s most venerated king, who ruled from 1181 to 1218, and was a devout Buddhist.Thanks to its intricate woodcarvings, Khmer bas-reliefs and Vietnamese lacquer paintings, this impressive cruise ship resembles a floating art gallery. Wherever they look, guests are reminded of the local arts and culture. With three-and-a-half decks, the Jayavarman is as spacious as it is beautiful. Guests can admire Khmer artifacts in the Henry Mouhot Lounge, mingle in the Club 1930 Bar, dine in the elegant Indochina Dining Hall, and recharge with spa treatments in the Apsara Spa. A Jacuzzi is located on the top Sun Deck, which offers spectacular views of the passing delta.   Our classic Mekong river cruise, ‘the lost civilization’, combines places rarely visited with opulent world heritage sites.
