Saigon to Angkor Overland (19 days)

Take a voyage of discovery on this leisurely overland journey, through picture postcard Southeast Asian scenery, from Southern Vietnam to the Temples of Angkor in Cambodia. After touching down in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), the first leg takes you through the fertile Mekong Delta region to see colourful markets, flooded forests and a traditional way of life that centres around agriculture and fishing. You will then cross the Cambodian border and travel to the charming fishing village of Kep for a relaxing stay in a converted French colonial villa. Explore the little-visited southern region of Cambodia, with visits to a pepper farm, fish market, National Park and the bohemian riverside town of Kampot. Next is a short stay in the alluring capital Phnom Penh, with its fine pagodas, wealth of fine European architecture, promenade along the Mekong and thriving foodie scene. You will then get back off the beaten track with a drive north to the Provincial capital of Battambang, a laid-back colonial town surrounded by countryside and monuments to explore. The final leg of the journey takes you on a private boat across Lake Tonle Sap to Siem Reap (if water levels permit), and two days to explore the iconic Temples of Angkor in our signature way.
