Day 2Hanoi

Discover some of Hanoi’s most famous historic and cultural sites on your guided tour that includes Ba Dinh Square and The Temple of Literature.

You’ll also visit the infamous prison that American POWs sarcastically dubbed the “Hanoi Hilton” during the Vietnam War.

Take an authentic rickshaw ride, known as “cyclo,” in Hanoi’s bustling Old Quarter, and then enjoy a traditional water puppet show. (B)

Day 3Hanoi -- Ha Long Bay

Ethereal Ha Long Bay is considered by many to be the Eighth Natural Wonder of the World, and AmaWaterways’ guests will be treated to this exclusive once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Spend the night on board an elegantly appointed ship designed with all the modern conveniences to ensure smooth sailing.

The backdrop of the bay’s magnificent scenery as well as dramatic limestone cliffs and rock formations provide you with the perfect setting for a memorable sojourn. (B, L, D)

Day 4Ha Long Bay -- Hanoi -- Siem Reap, Cambodia

Spend the morning sailing across the emerald waters of Ha Long bay with more than 2,000 small islands rising from the water like a dragon’s back.

Later in the morning, disembark the ship and transfer to Hanoi Airport for a short flight to Siem Reap, Cambodia, the gateway to Angkor Archaeological Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the former capital of the Khmer empire. (B, L)

Day 5Siem Reap -- Angkor

Begin your morning exploration of the Angkor temple complex at Angkor Thom, meaning “the great city.”

This is home to Bayon Temple, best known for its gigantic smiling stone faces, as well as the Terrace of the Elephants and the Terrace of the Leper King.

You’ll then visit nearby Ta Prohm, known as the “Kingdom of Trees,” for the way in which the temple stones have become intertwined with thick forest vegetation over the centuries.

Afternoon excursions take you to the fascinating jewel in the crown of Angkorian art, Banteay Srei, meaning “Citadel of Women” as it has been said that the carving is too fine to have been done by the hand of man.

Cap this memorable day off with a special “Apsara Dance Show” at your hotel, featuring local Cambodian/Khmer fork dancers. (B, D)

Day 6Siem Reap -- Angkor

Discover the heart and soul of Cambodian and the most iconic of all Angkorian Temples, Angkor Wat.

This is one of the largest religious monuments ever constructed and a true masterpiece of Khmer architecture built by King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century to honor the Hindu god, Vishnu. (B, D)

Day 7Embarkation -- Prek Kdam -- Koh Chen

Afterwards, you’ll take a motorcoach to Oudong, Cambodia’s former royal capital from the 17th century until 1866; today, Oudong is a place of pilgrimage for Cambodians.

While here, you’ll visit one of Cambodia’s largest monasteries, where you’ll witness a memorable Buddhist blessing ceremony.

Your ship departs for Oknhatey Village and moors midstream. (B, L, D)

Day 9Oknhatey Village -- Phnom Penh

Koh Oknhatey, or “Silk Island,” located on the lush banks of the Mekong River, is known for its rich tradition of silk weaving. You’ll go to Oknhatey, where you’ll visit a local elementary school and observe the traditional silk weaving of handicrafts.

Later, your ship departs for Phnom Penh, the vibrant capital of Cambodia. Experience Phnom Penh via an authentic tuk tuk ride and be enchanted by the city’s French Colonial architecture and tree-lined boulevards set amidst monumental Angkorian architecture.

During the evening on board, enjoy a Khmer folk performance presented by local children. (B, L, D)

Day 12Tan Chau -- Sa Dec

Enjoy a visit to Tan Chau, a small Mekong River town unspoiled by tourism. You will have the opportunity to get an authentic experience and take a traditional “xe-loi” (trishaw) ride around the town, with stops at silk-making and rattan mat workshops, followed by a boat ride through the narrow channels of the Mekong River to “Evergreen Island.”

Alternatively, simply take the boat ride to Evergreen Island and return to Tan Chau, where you will visit a rattan mat workshop.

Later in the day, cruise to Sa Dec. (B, L, D)

Day 13Sa Dec -- Xeo Quyt -- Cai Be

Later, board a motorcoach for Xeo Quyt, once used as a base during the French and U.S. wars and now an important ecological site. You will have an opportunity to visit candy and rice paper-making workshops and the historic Kiet Old house.

Cap the day off with a festive Farewell Dinner on board. (B, L, D)
