Itinerary in brief
- 2 nights Phnom Penh
- 1 night Chau Doc
- 1 night Ho Chi Minh
Day 1: Arrive in Phnom Penh
You will be greeted at the airport by your private driver, and taken to your hotel to check-in for your 2 night stay.
The remainder of your day is free for you to relax, unwind, and discover your surrounding area.
Day 2: Phnom Penh
Today is free for you to explore Phnom Penh independently at your own pace.
A few highlights we really enjoy include visiting the Russian Market, known for its selection of wood and stone carvings, and also the Central Market, great for food, jewellery, and traditional crafts.
Here at Travel Nation, we loved heading to the Silver Pagoda and the National Museum of Cambodia – strolling around these attractions are a really lovely way to spend the afternoon.
Day 3: Phnom Penh to Chau Doc
After breakfast, you will be met at your hotel and taken to the pier, where you will board your four hour cruise along the river. Along the way, you can relax and enjoy the wonderful landscape and life along the river banks.
During your boat trip, you will cross the border (and go through visa formalities!) before ending your journey in the riverside town of Chau Doc. Chau Doc is an incredibly friendly and colourful town, and a great place to explore.
Day 4: Chau Doc to Ho Chi Minh
An early start today ensures you get to Ho Chi Minh in good time. Your driver will collect you from your hotel, and your 5 hour journey will take you through the Vietnamese countryside and alongside the river.
Upon your arrival, you will check into your hotel, where you can stretch your legs and take in your new surroundings.
