Itineraries

Day 1: Siem Reap - Kampong Chhnang (L, D)

The Tonle Sap (The Great Lake) is the flowing heart of Cambodia, giving love and life to this nation. The Tonle Sap has more fish than any other lake in the world and is home to an incredible variety of birds, including rare and endangered feathered life.
At 12 pm (noon), we gather at the meeting point followed by a quick transfer to the boutique ship. The ever-smiling crew welcomes us with unbridled warmth. A refreshing welcome drink awaits us followed by a sumptuous lunch on the ship.
Then, it is a lazy afternoon as the ship glides along the water. Dinner is at Dining Hall. Enjoy a spectacular experience on the sun-deck as we bathe in the glow of the moon and the radiance of the stars. The ship then moors overnight on The Great Lake.

Meals: L, D

Accommodation: Jahan cruise

Day 2: Kampong Chhnang - Kampong Cham (B, L, D)

The day in fact everyday - starts with an invigorating Tai Chi lesson on the sundeck, just as the sun begins its slow rise. Coffee and tea awaits the early bird. Before dawn, the ship sets sail across the Tonle Sap Lake. As the ship is about to exit the lake, we see spectacular marshlands floating along the river banks of Kampong Chhnang province.
The afternoon cruise continues with a languid meander along the Tonle Sap, which narrows through leafy swaths of the Southeast Asian jungle. Here, the river is very narrow and we are greeted by kids waving enthusiastically at us from the banks.
Follow a short bus trip to the see the Khmer-styled pottery at the Aundaung Russey village. We then embark on a truly marvelous motorboat excursion from Kampong Chhnang to see the wetlands, floating houses and fish farms in the region before reaching Kampong Cham in the evening. Further down the river we take part in an ox cart rally before being introduced to the Heritage Line pro bono literacy project
Overnight in Kampong Cham.

Meals: B, L, D

Accommodation: Jahan cruise

Day 3: Kampong Cham - Wat Hanchey (B, L, D)

We will wake up in the small hours of the morning, truly energized to embark on a land journey to the pre-Angkorian temple of Wat Hanchey. Travelers either take a motor-taxi or climb the 291 steps to the top. Located at the top of a hill overlooking the river, it offers one of the most breath-taking views in Cambodia. Built in the 8th century, this ancient structure, together with a bigger and newer addition underscores the superb architecture of the Chenla Empire which predates the mighty Angkor temple complex. We even get to engage in light banter with some of the monks in the area. We will return to the ship to witness a blessing ceremony performed by orange-clad local monks.
When the tide allows, we will enjoy a surprise sojourn in our zodiacs (inflatable boats) to the nearby bank to swim in the tea-coloured Mekong river, an experience that will, no doubt, dominate dinner conversations in the weeks to come.
We will then cruise towards Kampong Cham to visit Wat Nokor, a wat built within the ruins of an ancient temple which holds a timeless story. On the way back to the ship, we will visit an orphanage. Along the way, we will have to maneuver a 2-kilometer rickety bamboo bridge. Our sense of balance lies in the balance!
Overnight midstream near Phnom Penh.

Meals: B, L, D

Accommodation: Jahan cruise

Day 4: Phnom Penh (B, L, D)

Phnom Penh was once the Paris of the East. Despite its rapid development, it has retained a lot of its rustic charm and elegance. After breakfast, we will be captivated by a comprehensive lecture on Cambodia's modern history. This will be followed by a city tour of this dynamic, historical capital city of Cambodia which has managed to preserve huge slices of its French colonial allure. Sightseeing in the morning will include visiting the dazzling white and gold edifice of the Royal Palace and the Silver Pagoda, and witnessing exceptionally beautiful Khmer craft at the National Museum.
After lunch at a local restaurant, we will visit the Genocide museum and the Killing Field in town. Be prepared to be heart wrenched by this stark reminder of the genocide that transpired during Cambodia's Khmer Rouge regime.
We go back to the ship after our museum visit. Take a rest on your cabin balcony or the lounge and get prepared for any exciting evening event. The evening starts with a variety of cocktail served on the sun deck. Take a seat and enjoy the following Apsara dance performance. Experience the brilliance and richness of this culture, the soothing sounds of traditional music, the calming scent of incense sticks and a barbeque on the sundeck. It is indeed a truly marvelous experience, dining in the open with the stars and the moon as our companions.

Meals: B, L, D

Accommodation: Jahan cruise

Start new day with Tai Chi at the sun deck with fresh tea and coffee be ready to served
At 9am, we will be captivated by a comprehensive lecture on Camdodia’s morden history
The cruise liner then sets sail for a lazy day of cruising along the main Mekong Channel. As this is an international shipping route, you will witness large commercial ships plying this route. Lunch will be served on boat. Later, in the afternoon, we set off to the Vietnamese border for the requisite cross border paperwork. As the process tends to take some time, we bask in the glow of the afternoon sun on the sun deck, pamper ourselves silly at the Spa, or sharpen our culinary skills with the Heritage Line’s Cambodian and Vietnamese cuisine cooking class. The ship moors midstream overnight in Tan Chau

This is followed by a trip to the quay, where we will be feted to a boat excursion to the floating villages and rustic catfish farms trip to the quay, where we will be feted to a boat excursion to the floating fish farm. Then, we will be back to the ship for a lunch.
In the mid-afternoon, we will set off for My An Hung Village. Passengers walk to the family house through the vegetable garden to see the boat building yard and canals.

After lunch onboard, the ship arrives in Cai Be. The tour starts with a visit to Cai Be's boisterous and colorful floating market where traders gather in a cacophonous congregation. During the languid ride, we discover breathtaking landscapes along the river and quaff the rustic life on the Mekong Delta.
The evergreen islands along the Mekong River remains unknown to many people. The cruise will halt intermittently to allow us to observe how rice paste, rice cookies and coconut candies are made, along with the Long An fruit drying process.

We then board the Ship for a tranquil evening cruise towards My Tho. A wonderful farewell party awaits us on the cruise.

Fantastic experience over eight days cruising up the Mekong River and stopping off for tours to sites of interest. Expensive but with a great staff and very knowledgeable tour guides on both the Vietnamese and Cambodian parts of the river. Cabins all very well appointed and very comfortable.The staff on board were efficient and very friendly. The only down side which seems common in the region was very poor W-Fi connectivity and reliability. This was a huge irritant to virtually all passengers. Otherwise a great adventure from outside Ho Chi Minh City and up through the Mekong delta into Cambodia. As this was the low water season, the final leg of the journey was a four hour bus ride from Kampong Cham to Siam Reap. I cannot recommend this cruise more highly - just a great experience.

fine ship, large stateroom, spacious bath, quite, very friendly staff, interesting scenery, very smart and interesting land excursion programs included too little sailing, too few hours real cruising on the water; more Km covered by bus than on board; ugly mooring sites (dirty, noisy, unpleasant view); food does not meet 5 stars expectation

We had an amazing time on the Jahan. We would rate everything a 10+. It was one of the best trips our family has taken. My 18 year old daughter has stated multiple times she could live on the Jahan. Highly recommend the trip. Thank you for your help in planning the cruise.
