Down the River We Run

Travel Indochina is offering guests the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of television presenter Sue Perkins whose new BBC2 documentary sees her embarking on a life-changing, 3,000-mile journey up the Mekong River. The Mekong River with Sue Perkins, which debuted on BBC2 earlier this month, features inspiring footage of The Great British Bakeoff presenter's journey upstream through Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and China. Travel Indochina boasts an unrivalled selection of genuinely small river boats, providing an ideal and authentic mode of transport that afford greater access and deeper insights into local life along one of Asia's most incredible main rivers.


The specialist tour operator's 12-day Saigon to Angkor – Saigon to Siem Reap journey features an eight-day luxury river cruise on the Jayavarman - a magnificent 'floating hotel' with 27 spacious cabins, all with private balconies and floor-to-ceiling sliding doors that reveal amazing views of the ever-changing Mekong landscape - with the opportunity, amongst other touring highlights, to discover the colourful floating villages of Tonle Sap Lake in Cambodia. Prices start from just GBP2,715 (US$4,259) per person including international flights from London Heathrow.


Additionally, Travel Indochina's 21-day Inside Vietnam & Cambodia small group journey offers travellers an opportunity to scratch beneath the surface of Vietnam and Cambodia. Highlights include an eco-fishing tour with a local fisherman in Hoi An to learn how to paddle a basket boat; a special stay with a hilltribe family in the upland valley of Mai Chau; and a memorable journey through the Mekong Delta taking in Cai Rang's boisterous floating market. The tour culminates with a magical sunrise experience via the little-visited eastern gate of Angkor Wat in Cambodia. Prices start from just GBP2,835 (US$4,448) per person.
