    Experience the magnificent Angkor Wat, a temple complex in Cambodia, built for King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century as his state temple and capital city. As the best-preserved temple at the site, it is the only one to have remained a significant religious center since its foundation – first Hindu, dedicated to the god Vishnu, then Buddhist. The temple has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag, and is the country's prime attraction for visitors.


    Please note:
    • There is extensive walking at the temple sites, with steps at Bayon and Angkor Wat
    • This program is not recommended for guests with walking difficulties or those who use a wheelchair
    • Flight schedules are subject to change and thus the tour sequence may vary
    • Vietnam multiple entry and Cambodian visas are included in the cost of this program
    • Any guests travelling with Portable Oxygen Concentrators (POC) or CPAP breathing machines should read further below for airline stipulations with regards to bringing this equipment on tour
    • One room is included in the per person single or double cost of this program and will be assigned for any bookings up to 2 guests regardless of cabin size on the ship.

Requests must be received at least 65 days before departure and confirmations will be based on availability at the time of request.


    DAY 1 – January 21, 2022
    Disembark in Bangkok and transfer to the airport for a flight to Siem Reap.


    Upon arrival in Siem Reap you will be met by your guide who will collect your passports to obtain your Cambodian Visa. After claiming luggage, transfer to your hotel for check-in.


    After some time to freshen up the group will proceed to a local restaurant for dinner accompanied by a traditional folkloric performance. After dinner return to your hotel for the evening.


    DAY 2 – January 22, 2022
    After a buffet breakfast at the hotel the group will drive to Angkor Wat.


    You will have approximately 2 hours to explore its archaeological treasures with your guide who will point out the best spots for taking photos of this massive temple complex as you walk amidst the moss-peppered cobbled pathways, gaze up at the intricately carved tower tops and perhaps climb the steep and narrow temple steps that lead to wide courtyards. Lose yourself in contemplation as you catch the rays of the sun dancing off the bas relief carvings, the chatter of monkeys reverberating off the temple walls.


    Next you will drive to Banteay Srei, the beautiful ‘Women’s Citadel’ located approximately 32km from Siem Reap. This is the last major Khmer temple to be re-discovered in Cambodia. Your morning of adventure will be followed by lunch at a local restaurant.


    In the afternoon you will visit the Angkor Thom complex which includes the Southern Gate of Angkor Thom and the famous Bayon Complex whose giant stone faces have become one of the most recognizable images connected to classic Khmer art and architecture. The curious smiling faces are said to be the representation of King Jayavarman VII, the creator of Bayon Temple. Finally, you will move on to the Elephants Terrace & Leper King.


    Another highlight is a visit to Ta Prohm Temple, famous for its forest atmosphere with enormous fig trees. This temple looks just as it did when the first European explorer arrived. You may recognize it as it’s also the location of many scenes filmed for Angelina Jolie’s huge blockbuster movie, Tomb Raider.


    Return to your hotel where the remainder of the evening is at your leisure and dinner is on your own.


    DAY 3 – January 23, 2022
    After breakfast and check out, the group will transfer to the Siem Reap Airport for a flight to Ho Chi Minh City. You will be met by our local ground operator in Vietnam and transferred to the ship with lunch and a tour of the city en-route.


    After lunch you will head to the Museum of Vietnamese History for an inside visit. This museum showcases Vietnam's history with exhibits from all periods since the 10th Century.


    Continue for a photo stop at the old Central Post Office which proudly showcases its colonial style on the outside and hides rare ancient maps decorated on the dome inside the building. Next to the Central Post Office is Notre Dame Church signaling strong Catholicism when the French occupied Vietnam at the end of 18th Century.


    Next you will drive to Independence Palace for a photo stop outside the palace. This was the home and workplace of the President of South Vietnam during the Vietnam War.


    Your Angkor Wat Adventure ends with a transfer to the port of Phu My where you will re-embark the ship.

    Explore Bangkok's exotic sites during this memorable visit to the Grand Palace, and the city's main shopping area.


    Depart the pier for the drive to the Grand Palace, which showcases the most beautiful example of an ancient Siamese Court.

    Depart the pier for the drive to Bangkok, where upon arrival you will board a boat for a scenic cruise along the canals, or klongs, of the Chao Praya River.

    Your tour along these fascinating waterways includes a stop at the beautiful Temple of Dawn, or Wat Arun, and a visit to the Royal Barge Shed, where the impressively ornate ceremonial barges are stored when not in use.


    Following your time at the Royal Barge shed, you will transfer to a local restaurant for lunch before driving back to Laem Chabang.

    Get a genuine feel for river life by exploring the Pattaya floating market, which vendors in small wooden boats supply with all sorts of local goods. The market is divided into four sections, each representing a different region of Thailand. Although just opened in 2008, the market looks much older as it was designed to replicate an ancient floating market, most of which have long been abandoned. During free time at the market, you might sample items such as dragon fruit and mangosteen—the national fruit of Thailand—and linger over a freshly prepared lunch that is characteristic of one of the four regions. With so many aromas enticingly wafting through the air, it will be hard to resist dining. But the floating market offers much more than food. You will also find unusual handicrafts, silverware, handmade bags and silk clothing. The atmosphere couldn’t be more inviting.


    HIGHLIGHTS:
    • Browse the incredible array of merchandise at the Pattaya floating market.
    • Get a sense of river life, as the locals purchase items directly from the vendors on boats.
    • Marvel at the design of the floating market, a replica of an ancient floating market.

    Experience daily life in the fertile agricultural countryside and delve into Thailand’s spiritual side by visiting the area’s most important Buddhist temple. While it will take two hours to reach Chachoengsao, it will be well worth the effort. The Bang Pakong River supplies abundant water to the area, and rice especially flourishes there. As you will discover by browsing the century-old Klong Suan Market with the locals, every imaginable type of food is available. Best of all, many vendors offer samples. For an entirely different perspective of the area, you will visit Luang Pho Sothon, a temple with a revered statue of Buddha that according to legend was found floating down the river. Chances are, you will see worshippers praying for prosperity and others leaving offerings. Women often leave boiled eggs in hopes of becoming pregnant. While wandering about the temple, be sure to notice the artwork, especially the painted murals of religious scenes.


    HIGHLIGHTS:
    • Enjoy a leisurely and immensely picturesque drive into the agricultural countryside.
    • Browse Klong Suan Market with the locals as they peruse the seemingly endless stalls.
    • Visit a beloved Buddhist temple and mingle with the worshippers and pilgrims.

    Mingle with the locals in two coastal areas known more for their signature products than their beaches and seaside attractions. You will first visit Ang Sila, an engaging city revered for its hand-carved stoneware, especially granite mortars and pestles used for grinding spices. This prized piece of kitchenware is prevalent throughout Ang Sila, which means “stone basin.” Even so, fishing is the primary industry and most of the local seafood recipes call for spices—preferably ground with a stone mortar and pestle. Sticky rice is the iconic product associated with the Chon Buri province. Served as a signature dessert known as Khao Lam, sticky rice is typically mixed with coconut milk, black beans, sugar and salt before being roasted over an open fire in a stout bamboo tube. As you will discover firsthand at the Nong Mon Market, Khao Lam is a delicious treat any time of the day.


    HIGHLIGHTS:
    • Meander through two beautiful coastal areas known for rather unusual signature products.
    • Learn why Ang Sila is revered for its stone mortars and pestles and buy one if you wish.
    • Sample the iconic sticky rice dessert long associated with Nong Mon Market.

    Experience the mystic ancient beauty, tradition and art of Thailand during this visit to the Wooden Pavilion. Head to North Pattaya to visit this pavilion also known as “The Sanctuary of Truth”. It is a mystical building constructed according to ancient Thai specifications and the largest wood-carved structure in Thailand.


    Designed as a pagoda-shaped pavilion, the building is over 340 feet tall. It is a fusion of religion, culture and art. Originally crafted entirely from Thailand's native teak, parts of the Wooden Pavilion have been replaced by the more durable redwood to withstand the ravages of the salt air. Every square inch of the building is covered with intricate and detailed wooden sculptures depicting the Ancient Vision of Earth, Ancient Knowledge and Eastern Philosophy. Once inside, you’ll have an opportunity to view the cavernous inner chapel, which reveals scenes from Chinese, Hindu and Buddhist traditions.


    After exploring the pavilion and surrounding grounds, you will drive back to the ship along the beautiful Pattaya Beach Road with a stop at a shopping store where you can browse among a range of vibrant Thai silks and souvenirs.
