Vietnam & Cambodia Aboard 12-cabin Mekong Princess

National Trust travelers will board the Mekong Princess, an elegant all-suite vessel combining romantic French colonial style with modern comforts, for the most intimate luxury cruising experience available on the Mekong. Our program begins with a stay in Ho Chi Minh City, a busy and dynamic city still known by many as Saigon, and ends with two full days to explore the remarkable Khmer temples and monuments of legendary Angkor, one of Asia’s most exquisite archaeological gems. In between, the Mekong River takes us into the fascinating but seldom-visited world of one of Asia’s great waterways. Marvel at floating villages whose residents literally live on the water—working, shopping, even attending school and church. Tour a family-owned orchard, visit a noodle factory and a coconut candy maker, and experiment with typical Vietnamese ingredients during a cooking demonstration.
