Mekong River, Cambodia and Vietnam

Between poky trains, chaotic buses and iffy roads, getting around Southeast Asia can be difficult for independent travelers. Ease on down the river instead. Several cruise companies, including Pandaw, Viking, Avalon and AmaWaterways, offer leisurely voyages along the southern stretch of the Mekong River between Siem Reap, Cambodia and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. In addition to touring the famed sights at either end of the cruise, including Angkor Wat, you'll also stop in Cambodia's capital city, Phnom Penh; visit small villages and floating markets; and enjoy scenic cruising through the region's lush rice fields.
