Most of Evergreen’s Mekong river cruises include a two night stay in Ho Chi Minh City and a three night stay in Siem Reap, allowing you ample time to discover these amazing cities. Ho Chi Minh City is a busy metropolis thriving on progress while still offering strong traditions and living reminders of the Vietnam War. One such reminder is the remarkable Cu Chi tunnels that were built underground to keep whole villages safe. Siem Reap is known as the gateway to the magnificent temples of Angkor. You will never forget the moment you witness a sunrise over the famous ancient temple of Angkor Wat, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
As part of our 21 day Grand Tour of Cambodia & Vietnam
, you have the opportunity to explore Vietnam and Cambodia even further with a two night cruise on board a classic junk in Halong Bay and a three night stay in Hoi An. In Hoi An, a town best explored on foot, discover its shops, markets and historic architecture, and visit Reaching Out, an organisation that teaches jewellery and pottery making to people with disabilities, helping them lead independent and fulfilling lives.
While every city has its highlights and must-see attractions, there are also several hidden gems that need to be discovered. With our customised itineraries, we achieve the right balance ensuring you see all the best things to do on the Mekong. Visit the Chinese Congregational House in Kien An Cung, and afterwards visit the home of Mr. Huynh Thuy Le who inspired Marguerite Duras’ novel, L’amant.
When touring Hue’s Old City, join the locals on an authentic cyclo (bicycle style rickshaw) ride and visit a family-owned silk producing factory in Hong Ngu. Sail Halong Bay and escape the sounds of traffic and honking horns as you enjoy swimming on quiet beaches and visiting local fishing villages.
The most relaxing and convenient way to cruise along the Mekong River is on board Emerald Harmony, the most innovative ship on the Mekong River. Enjoy the panoramic views from the sun deck, savour our Asian-inspired dishes featuring the freshest local ingredients or stay active in our well-equipped wellness area.
