Inquiry Submission By Emma R

I have the opportunity to travel on a river cruise in March next year but due to time and other plans, only have time to do a 3 night cruise.

I can do either Siem Reap to Phnom Penh (or VV) or Saigon to Phnom Penh.

Does anyone have any opinions on on which part of the river will be more interesting? Comparing scenery and possible day trips options.

I think the cruise through Mekong Delta area does interest me more with visits to Cai Be and Sa Dec but has the hassle of the border crossing and also having to pay for a flight. Is there much to see between SR and PP?

The plan would be either:

A) Fly to HCMC – 3 night cruise HCMC to PP – 1 Night PP – Fly to SR for 3 or 4 nights

B) Fly to SR – Stay 3 or 4 nights – 3 night cruise SR to PP – Stay 1 night

Thanks in advance for any advice or thoughts.
