    • Visit the pre-Angkorian temple of WatHanchey to learn more the long lasting history of the country
    • Enjoy the endless charm of the great Tonle Sap Lake
    Day 01 Phnom Penh - Embarkation

    Our crew gives you a warm welcome early in the morning when you check into your fancy "home" for the next few days.

    Welcome to Phnom Penh, once called the "Paris of the East," which keeps its old-world charm amidst modern growth. It's a city rich in history and culture.

    After breakfast, we start our city tour with a cyclo ride, visiting landmarks like the Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda, then the "S21" prison, reminding us of the Khmer Rouge era. Lunch in town will be followed by a visit to one of the country's most famous history museums, "Sosoro", and a walk in the French Quarter, ending at Wat Phnom.

    Tonight, join us for a talk in the lounge, followed by an outdoor barbecue, gala dinner, and Apsara dance. Afterward, you're free to enjoy Phnom Penh's night scene or the riverfront.

    Day 02 Phnom Penh - Koh Chen – Kampong Laeang - Kampong Tralach (Tonle River)

    As dawn breaks, we sail into the Tonle River, surrounded by Cambodia's stunning landscapes.

    Our first visit is to the famous Koh Chen's Silver Smith Village, where 400 families create beautiful silver, copper, and brass items, some of which have graced Phnom Penh's Royal Palace.

    During our upstream journey, enjoy lunch and a showcase of traditional Khmer attire for special events.

    We then reach Kampong Laeang, opposite the pottery hub of Kampong Chhnang. A tuk-tuk ride takes us into rural Cambodia, where we'll see pottery making, visit an ancient pre-Angkorian temple, and view the expansive floodplains and rice fields (depending on the season). 

    After getting back on the ship, we start heading downstream towards Kampong Tralach, where we'll stop for the night.


    OPTIONAL EXCURSION (CULINARY):

    Afternoon: Besides the usual cultural trip, this food-themed outing lets you join a cooking demo. Learn to make a popular snack called “Nom Kruak,” a cake from white or brown rice. Unique because it's cooked on both sides, unlike traditional one-sided cakes, the Khmer people created this tasty treat often enjoyed by locals before dinner.

    Day 03 Kampong Tralach (Tonle River) - Prek Bangkong - Angkor Ban (Mekong River)

    This morning, we're off to explore the countryside near Kampong Tralach. We'll ride in a cart pulled by oxen, passing by beautiful rice fields until we reach a small village. There, we'll learn about a local NGO school and library project run by a local group. Besides, you can visit an old temple and Buddha shrine that's been around for nearly 300 years.

    As we head downstream, passing Phnom Penh to enter the Mekong River, we'll share a talk about these rivers.

    Near where the Tonle and Mekong Rivers meet, we find Prek Bangkong, a village famous for silk weaving. It used to be home to the Royal family. Today, the highlight is the silk weavers, who make silk from scratch. We'll get to see how they do it up close. Our visit ends at the historic home of H.E. Sam-El, a well-known royal architect.

    We'll spend the rest of the day cruising up the Mekong to where we'll stay for the night. Chill by the pool with a cocktail during sunset, with some music to set the mood, before having dinner and watching a movie in the evening.

    Day 04 Angkor Ban – Kampong Cham - Stueng Trang

    Start the day with morning Tai Chi before we explore Angkor Ban. Visit a monastery and the village behind it, where you can chat with monks and locals. Walking through the village, you'll see the local lifestyle up close, making great memories of Cambodia's countryside. This charming village is perfect for photos and meeting the community.

    We head to Kampong Cham during lunch.

    In Kampong Cham, a key trade spot by the Mekong River, small villages around the town showcase the locals' craftsmanship, like in Cheung Kok where they make handmade goods. The seasonal Bamboo bridge nearby is not just for crossing; it connects us to history.

    Then, the ship heads to its last stop, anchoring in the middle of the river near Stueng Trang, with a goodbye party vibe on the way.


    OPTIONAL EXCURSION (CULINARY):

    Morning: Today's food-themed trip has a special part. Besides seeing Angkor Ban village, we'll visit Mr. B's house. He once cooked on the Jayavarman ship and now lives in his wife's village. With his mother-in-law and wife, who's the main cook, we'll make an old fish soup called “Samlor Korko.” It's full of veggies, spices, herbs, and roasted rice, served with a duck egg omelette.

    Day 05 Stueng Trang - Disembarkation - Siem Reap

    Have your last breakfast with us before we leave the ship and take a 4-hour bus ride to Siem Reap. Our guides will keep you interested with facts about Cambodia on the way. We hope you loved the cruise and made great memories and friends. Share your stories of the great Mekong River.

    You'll get to Siem Reap by early afternoon. End of services.

    In the afternoon, we'll go on our first trip. We'll take a bus to explore Kampong Cham's highlands, a key area for trade that still has small villages around its edges.

    We're getting back on our fancy ship, heading downstream towards Phnom Penh. Before we reach Cambodia's capital, we'll stop at a small place where they weave silk.

    Near where the Tonle and Mekong Rivers meet, we find Prek Bangkong, a village famous for silk weaving. It used to be home to the Royal family. Today, the highlight is the silk weavers, who make silk from scratch. We'll get to see how they do it up close. Our visit ends at the historic home of H.E. Sam-El, a well-known royal architect.

Unique because it's cooked on both sides, unlike traditional one-sided cakes, the Khmer people created this tasty treat often enjoyed by locals before dinner.

    Day 06 Kampong Tralach (Tonle River) - Prek Bangkong - Angkor Ban (Mekong River)

    This morning, we're off to explore the countryside near Kampong Tralach. We'll ride in a cart pulled by oxen, passing by beautiful rice fields until we reach a small village. There, we'll learn about a local NGO school and library project run by a local group. Besides, you can visit an old temple and Buddha shrine that's been around for nearly 300 years.

    As we head downstream, passing Phnom Penh to enter the Mekong River, we'll share a talk about these rivers.

    Near where the Tonle and Mekong Rivers meet, we find Prek Bangkong, a village famous for silk weaving. It used to be home to the Royal family. Today, the highlight is the silk weavers, who make silk from scratch. We'll get to see how they do it up close. Our visit ends at the historic home of H.E. Sam-El, a well-known royal architect.

    We'll spend the rest of the day cruising up the Mekong to where we'll stay for the night. Chill by the pool with a cocktail during sunset, with some music to set the mood, before having dinner and watching a movie in the evening.

    Day 07 Angkor Ban – Kampong Cham - Stueng Trang

    Start the day with morning Tai Chi before we explore Angkor Ban. Visit a monastery and the village behind it, where you can chat with monks and locals. Walking through the village, you'll see the local lifestyle up close, making great memories of Cambodia's countryside. This charming village is perfect for photos and meeting the community.

    We head to Kampong Cham during lunch.

    In Kampong Cham, a key trade spot by the Mekong River, small villages around the town showcase the locals' craftsmanship, like in Cheung Kok where they make handmade goods. The seasonal Bamboo bridge nearby is not just for crossing; it connects us to history.

    Then, the ship heads to its last stop, anchoring in the middle of the river near Stueng Trang, with a goodbye party vibe on the way.


    OPTIONAL EXCURSION (CULINARY):

    Morning: Today's food-themed trip has a special part. Besides seeing Angkor Ban village, we'll visit Mr. B's house. He once cooked on the Jayavarman ship and now lives in his wife's village. With his mother-in-law and wife, who's the main cook, we'll make an old fish soup called “Samlor Korko.” It's full of veggies, spices, herbs, and roasted rice, served with a duck egg omelette.

    Day 08 Stueng Trang - Disembarkation - Siem Reap

    Have your last breakfast with us before we leave the ship and take a 4-hour bus ride to Siem Reap. Our guides will keep you interested with facts about Cambodia on the way. We hope you loved the cruise and made great memories and friends. Share your stories of the great Mekong River.

    You'll get to Siem Reap by early afternoon. End of services.
