Mekong Delta

Southeast Asia’s Mekong, provides a rich tapestry of river life. Through Cambodia and Vietnam, this great waterway inextricably links the two countries, despite their strikingly diverse cultures.

Weaving snakelike through Southeast Asia, from the bustling Vietnamese delta, upstream the Mekong moves into Cambodia and culminates by flowing alongside the great Khmer Temple of Angkor.

Along the way experience whole towns floating on rafts, explore remote villages untouched by the modern world and hopefully see river dolphins, as well as a chance to visit the charming Cambodian capital, Phnom Penh.

Paul Craven

Paul is the Conde Nast Traveler chosen Specialist for Central Asia and the Silk Route.

Being from a family with Army connections I can from an early age remember travelling. From camping in Europe and then later being sent to boarding school when we lived in Germany at the age of eight, complete with shorts, long socks, a cap and my suitcase. In appearance not too dissimilar to the children evacuated to the countryside during the blitz.

Clare Higginson

It was my passion for languages that first encouraged me to leave the UK behind and grab my rucksack. Since then, it’s been a mixture of intriguing cultures, jaw-dropping landscapes and the wonder of seeing animals in their natural habitat that sees me continuously extending my travel wish list.
