I was also lucky enough this year to get a short winter trip away
on a luxury Scenic River Cruise from Cambodia to Vietnam with a small select
group of agents.
Cambodia was a new destination for me and I took an extra couple
of day to explore Siem Reap and the amazing Angkor Wat Temples – watching the sun rise over the temples was a magical experience. We didn’t get the best of sunrises sadly – sometimes the light is amazing but it was still serene experience.
Cambodia is a delight to visit and apart from the major sites like Angkor Wat it is not overrun by tourists yet.
After my time in Siem Reap I had 7 days aboard the Scenic Spirit
Riverboat from Siem Reap to Saigon – it is super flash, with amazing staff
& service and fabulous food. Scenic Cruises are fully inclusive
and all shore excursions are included, and some of these are quite unique. My personal favorites were visiting a temple and feeding the young monks their
daily rice and a village eco tour where we were shown around by the happy young children in the village who were delighted to show us their home &
school. I can thoroughly recommend Scenic if you love luxury this
is the way to go!
