Cambodia is home to the magnificent Temples of Ankgor, whose very name conjures up images of jungle temples, Asian mysticism and exotic Hindu influence architecture. Built over 1000 years ago, it was then deserted for reasons never answered, and remained undiscovered until 1860 when a Belgian explorer, Henri Mouhot, was hacking his way through the jungle and suddenly came across this fantastic feat of building and design. It is now one of the region’s most desirable destination for the curious traveller.
The Mekong River Cruise is one of the incredible and exciting river journeys, cruising on the Mekong river from Saigon up to Siem Reap, an 8 day historical voyage of colonial Indochina, much of which is relatively untouched. Departing from either Saigon going north, or from Siem Reap heading south, travellers will experience the full spectrum of culture and life on the Mekong Delta, as well as excursions to cultural and historical sites throughout Vietnam and Cambodia. Whilst there are many cruise options for the Mekong, we at Chic Locations are delighted to be partners with RV La Marguerite, a 46 cabin vessel that has raised the standard of river travel along the Mekong Delta. Elegant, with old world charm.
