Full Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Phnom Penh to Chau Doc

You will be picked up from your hotel in Phnom Penh in the morning and driven to the city's boat pier to begin your journey to Vietnam. Enjoy the scenery as you cruise along the Mekong River for four hours to Chau Doc. During the Vietnam War, this stretch of water was one of the most dangerous on the Mekong. On arrival in Chau Doc you will be taken to your hotel and in the late afternoon you climb Sam Mountain, a place of worship for the ethnic-Chinese. From the top you will enjoy spectacular sunset views across Cambodia before returning to your hotel.
