This NEW flight-inclusive 10-day cruise and beach break combines the best of all worlds; small-ship luxury river cruising, the cultural treasures of the Mekong River, and the rolling countryside and sandy beaches of Kep on Cambodia's southern coast.

Fly into Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), where you'll have a night to relax before continuing to Can Tho where you embark on your 4* cruise. On your voyage up the Mekong, you'll discover floating markets and cultural museums, along with traditional handicrafters like net weavers, wood carvers and incense makers. You'll also enjoy a visit to the last traditional silk village in the region.

Disembark in Phnom Penh and travel to the Cambodian seaside resort town of Kep on Cambodia's southern coast. Here, relax for three nights at a hotel. Your days are at leisure to spend relaxing on the sands, or perhaps enjoying independent exploration of the nearby National Park and Kampot's famous pepper farms.

Our brand new eco-friendly vessel, the Victoria Mekong offers a uniquely elegant small-ship experience, with guests invited to make use of the onboard spa, library, games room, infinity pool and two bars. All 35 cabins have mini-safes, Wi-Fi access and private balconies, and are some of the largest cruise cabins on the Mekong.

Rates given are based on the main deck on the Victoria Mekong cruise and Knai Bang Chatt resort in Kep. Should you wish to book an alternative hotel in Kep, add an extra night in Saigon or Phnom Penh, choose a cabin on the upper deck, or spend longer on the beach, our reservations team will be happy to help. Call 0808 274 8594 to speak to a travel expert. Website bookings are subject to written confirmation. You will be contacted by our reservations team after booking.
