South East Asia is one of the most exaggerating destinations for travel lovers. Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam are the best places to travel in South East Asia. Our guide was just excellent and had huge knowledge about these places. He helped us finding the best cuisines in these places and even helped us in cutting down the transportation charges. The...

8 day cruise from Saigon, Vietnam to Siem Reap, Cambodia (Angkor Wat) on The Jahan. Laid back and relaxing, the local cultures are fantastic. We visited villages and schools along the way, the children are very inquisitive. The first grade class sang the Hokey Pokey in English. I shot a video on my cell phone then played it back, I...

We set up a private tour through Nhi, a tour guide based in HCMC. We were picked up and transported to the Mekong. Along the way we stopped at the Golden Temple. Then we boarded a boat to cross the Mekong River. We had the opportunity to taste local foods, listen to traditional music, watch coconut candy and rice paper... More

Heritage Line operates two luxurious vessels in this lush delta: the father of our fleet, The Jayavarman, and his brother, The Jahan. Custom-ordered to evoke the stately elegance of Indochine and the rich artistry of an Indian Maharaja’s palace, these craft combine old-world elegance with modern comfort. In the Mekong Delta, Heritage Line’s cruises explore the age-old ways of life... More

A lovely sight with a string history of trading and selling amongst the local people. Also was wonderful to see how coconut and rice paper are made and used. Yummy coconut candy.

We have just concluded a Cruisco Mekong tour consisting of a mekong cruise, shore excursions and information sessions. It was fabulous! The staff and guides were great, the food superb and all beverages at meal times free plus the bar also offered free alcohol during the day. All guides were local and had a briars knowledge of their country. All... More

If you have spare time, this would be a good addition to your itinerary thou it'll eat up into your schedule. It's ok to visit but I can skip it as well. I went anyway & it was a pleasant trip. It was hot & humid but bearable. I was treated to coconut candies prior to the river tour.

Our day trip from Ho Chi Minh City to the Mekong Delta (Intrepid Mekong Discovery - 3 June 2015) was all you could want it to be and more. The small group of 8 were treated to a number of experiences of delta life commencing and finishing in the city of My Tho. The day included motor and man powered... More

We spent 7 wonderful days & nights (20-27 June 2105) cruising upstream from Ho Chi Minh to Siem Reap onboard The Jahan. Due to lack of rain & Tonle Sap having low water levels we had to travel by bus the last leg (5 hours) into Siem Reap itself from Kampong Cham which was yet another layer of experience to... More

It was quite far from the city centre to get to and although we saw many great things, such as the locals playing music and making candy, I was a little bored. You are expected to tip everywhere you go too which is fine but it would be nice if the company paid something also considering we had paid so... More
