Setting sail from Siem Reap
The town of Siem Reap is a pleasant enough place in its own right, but that's not why so many people flock here; this is the gateway to the sprawling ruins of Angkor, the spectacular seat of the ancient Khmer empire. The temple of Angkor Wat is the most famous, and some might say the most beautiful, of the structures that stand amongst the jungle around Siem Reap. We recommend getting here early in the morning if you can, to avoid the crowds. Other notable sights include the ruined city of Angkor Thom and the eerie temple of Ta Prohm, which has been left more or less as it was found, overgrown with vegetation, the stones gripped by huge tree roots.
Visit the amazing Bayon Temple, where what feels like hundreds of gently smiling faces peer at you from the stone towers.
Cambodia: Kampong Cham
Cambodia: Phnom Penh
Cambodia’s lively, youthful capital has shown a remarkable resilience in bouncing back from the horrors of the Khmer Rouge regime. The beautiful Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda shouldn’t be missed, while the former Tuol Sleng prison is a harrowing reminder of Phnom Penh’s recent past.
Scenic river cruising
Vietnam: Phu Quoc, Ben Tre
Arriving in My Tho
My Tho is the start or end point for most Mekong river cruises, a busy port situated just under two hours' drive south of Ho Chi Minh City. You're unlikely to spend any time in the town itself, but you'll be able to settle in on board your ship and catch your first glimpses of life on the Mekong Delta, as barges unload their cargo of sand, rice and timber from upriver and little fishing boats float amongst the clumps of water hyacinth.
Your home from home
The most spacious of all the Pandaw vessels and specially designed to operate on the Lower Mekong.
What We Love
Refitted in 2013 when the lower deck cabins were replaced with a spa, gym, library and lounge, we love the facilities on offer. From the teak sundeck just shy of 2500 square feet with a full size billiards table, to the larger dining hall, this really does offer space and comfort in spades.

Tailor-make your trip
Where to stay in Siem Reap
La Residence d’Angkor edges in front as our favourite.
Touring the temples
A tour of the main sites at Angkor can be squeezed into a day, but take three days to explorer the outer temples and learn more about the medieval world's greatest metropolis.
