Itineraries

Day 1-Friday: Mekong River - Phnom Penh - Cambodia

We meet you at the Phnom Penh TS1 Port for check-in to your 3-story, five star Mekong abode. Welcome aboard. We’ll leave you to settle into your floating retreat, with its window wall conferring an endlessly captivating panorama. Enjoy these private Mekong moments on your California king bed, terrace or daybed. Together we celebrate the onward journey towards the heart of this mighty river with a Khmer apsara performance, an indigenous tradition memorialized on the temple walls at Angkor Wat.

Meals: L, D

Accommodation: Aqua Mekong Cruise

Day 2-Saturday: Mekong River - Koh Oknha Tey - Preah Prosop - Cambodia

On this river of time we admire dexterous Khmer artisans dyeing and weaving kroma, the ubiquitous item no Khmer lives without. Explore the riverbank on two wheels if you wish, past Buddhist temples and thatch houses perched on spindly wooden stilts while white oxen wade just offshore. After lunch, we board our marine-grade aluminum skiffs and head towards the tamarind trees of Preah Prosop, a remote village little changed over several lifetimes.

Meals: B, L, D

Accommodation: Aqua Mekong Cruise

Day 3-Sunday: Tonle Sap River - Koh Chen - Kampong Tralach - Cambodia

This morning, we visit Koh Chen, a silversmith village known for its fine craftsmanship. Keep an eye out for their famous silver bowls, regularly chosen by Cambodia's king as gifts for visiting dignitaries. Cruise across the glassy water and disembark among the lotuses for an ox-cart ride along the Tonle Sap riverbanks, past lacquered wooden houses where during these dry months residents take refuge in the relative cool of these outdoor impromptu living rooms.

Meals: B, L, D

Accommodation: Aqua Mekong Cruise

Day 4-Monday: Tonle Sap River - Kampong Chnang - Camb

In the cooler hours, we head into the lush countryside to visit traditional potters and palm-sugar producers, astride mountain bikes or chauffeured by shaded tuk-tuk. Into the rice paddies we pedal to watch wizened masters scale sky-piercing palms towering over us. Come afternoon, as we cruise past fertile fields of green beans flourishing among the charms of the Tonle Sap channel, relax amidst the air conditioning of our top deck lounge while our expert guides lead an insightful discussion of Mekong life.

Meals: B, L

Accommodation: Aqua Mekong Cruise

Day 5-Tuesday: Mekong river - Phnom Penh - Cambodia

We show off the Cambodian capital to our passengers by motorized tuk-tuk, the Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda and the National Museum of Cambodia, home to the world’s largest collection of Khmer art. For those who wish, we visit the Tuol Sleng Museum of Genocide and the Killing Field or shopping at Russian Market. We bid farewell to 4-night guests who are disembarking in Phnom Penh.

We loved this cruise. We did it with a 9 and 11 year who also enjoyed it. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable and happy to continue serving us beer/soft drinks. We were picked up from our hotel on time and met at the boat with little hassle. There was plenty of room to stretch out on the boat as it wasn’t crowded. The cruise itself offers great sunset views over PP. Just a great time really.

You have to choose your day but if the skies are clear, it's bound to be a treat. The little cruise (an hour and a half) on the Tonlé Sap and then going to meet the Mekong river offers a unique view on the city (the skyline probably changes every month) at dusk. You get to see the other side, where fishermen live. The most interesting is the knowledgeable tour guide. Ours was a student who told us about life on the river, some about the city and was greatly interesting and could answer questions. The boat is just the right size, not too big that people are in all your photos, not too small that you feel too little when other boats come along. Add to this free beer and sodas and you have a great little evening cruise for a really fair price. Cherry on top, they will come and get you by tuk-tuk wherever you are and they are super reactive in answering WhatsApp messages. Really recommend.

The company on the boat were a lot of fun, the staff was great, and the finger food was good. It would have been nice if there was a veggie platter though, but no big deal. Because of the long boat races, the boat couldn't park at the usual spot so we got picked up at a very interesting spot where we had to climb down a make shift step ramp and onto the boat. We all had some laughs. The guide made sure we did it safely and helped us. I enjoyed it.
