Timeless Wonders of Vietnam, Cambodia and the Mekong with Rose Gray

February 5 - 20, 2024 | Hanoi to Ho Chi Ming | 16 Days

Please call for availability at 1-888-369-8785

Join Rose Gray in two of the most beautiful, historic and friendly places in all of Asia, dynamic Vietnam and pastoral Cambodia! They are intriguing studies in contrast. Each possesses its own unique charm and social traditions, its own tragic history and complex past. In many ways, a visit here is less about the sights you see than it is about the people you meet and the experiences you have along the way.

We start our journey with a stay in Hanoi. Then onto colorful Siem Reap that provides the gateway to the vast UNESCO-designated jungle temple complex of Angkor Wat. As the lifeblood of Southeast Asia, the seven-night river cruise on the Mekong teems with colorful floating villages and mementos of its French Colonial past. Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s thriving capital, is fast-forwarding to the future yet retains a provincial intimacy. Ho Chi Minh City offers a heady mixture of old and new. This once in a lifetime tour will bring you up close and personal to amazing people and places!
