Cruise only (Please call for flight options)
Setting sail from 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. The riverside Sisowath Quay is a pleasant place for a promenade, and you can stop for a drink overlooking the Mekong at the famous Foreign Correspondents' Club.

Vietnam: Dong Thap
Arriving in Ho Chi Minh City
Still often referred to by its old name, Saigon, this is Vietnam's busiest city. Saigon was the capital of the South during the Vietnam War, and American-style capitalism has been embraced more enthusiastically here than in the North, with a clutch of shining skyscrapers standing as testament to Vietnam's surging economic growth. You can learn more about the city's turbulent recent history at the Reunification Palace and the War Remnants Museum, shop for souvenirs at the colourful markets, or take a trip out of the city to the fascinating (and claustrophobic) Cu Chi Tunnels.
Ben Thanh Market has an eclectic mix of wares. From the usual tourist fodder to kitchen utensils and everything in between, go there for the atmosphere rather than the shopping.
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.
