Day 2 | Kampong Chhnang - Kamp. Tralach - Kampong Cham

Meal: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Wake up early to witness the spectacular scenery at the break of dawn. Our morning Tai Chi class offers the perfect scenerytoday. Breakfast buffet is served in the dining hall. We are at Kampong Chhnang, Cambodia’s “water world”, where everything is on sticks balanced on water rich soil. It’s perhaps the most fascinating cruising spot in Cambodia. We take a local boat to the shore. By mini buses, we head to
a rural village nearby for a walking tour. Our guides introduce us to the village specialities – Khmer style pottery and the making of palm sugar. You should defi nitely bring some home. Before returning to the boat, we explore the fl oating villages and wetlands of the region. Back on board, lunch is served while we continue cruising with a languid meander along the Tonle River towards Kampong Tralach. A Monks’ blessing ceremony on board delivers spirits and wishes for health and prosperity for all. Gliding through leafy swaths of this jungle-like landscape we reach Kampong Tralach. Cacophonous children wave enthusiastically while bringing their livestock for a bath in the meandering river. We will stop at the “Green School” which is partly supported by Heritage Line. See all of the river life - which is so different than ours - by a local ox cart ride. Back on board, we sail downstream passing the confl uence of the Tonle and Mekong Rivers. The boat cruises overnight while you enjoy dinner in the dining hall.

Day 3 | Kampong Cham - Okhna Tey - Phnom Penh

Meal: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
After a sumptuos breakfast we stay on board to learn more about the education of the young Cambodian generation (NGO project). The children will join us on board, excited to show their skills in music and art. Be sure to be bathed in smiles upon your applause. We leave the boat around 09:30 am to the enchanting pre-Angkorian temple of Wat Hanchey (7th century). This small complex sits on a hill top right on the shore with breath-taking views over the Mekong. After some refreshment back on the ship, lunch will be served. Our staff is keen on showing you the variety of traditional Khmer fashion in the afternoon. Watch the riverbanks’ life along the Mekong during our High Tea as the ship proceeds to its next stop.
We arrive at the Island of Koh Oknha Tey. This spot in the middle of the Mekong owns its fame for manufacturing high class silk products. By tuk tuk we explore the island with its workshops and learn how silk is processed from its source, provided by little silkworms, to a fi nal top quality product made of original Cambodian silk. After some additional cruising time the boat arrives and docks at the pier of Phnom Penh. Feel free to have your first exploration by yourself after dinner. Stroll along the river
promenade and watch the locals chit-chatting, selling odds and ends or have a drink in one of the numerous bars (kindly inform our crew once you are leaving the ship on your own).

Day 4 | Phnom Penh

Meal: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
We start with a full sight-seeing tour right after breakfast. By bus we visit the Killing Fields at the outside of the city and afterwards the centrally located prison “S21”. Both historic sites display the sad and cruel chapter of Khmer history when the Khmer Rouge ruled the country with terror and supression. Those places have not changed much since this horrific time back in the early seventies and it can be quite heartbreaking. Alternatively, you can explore the city in the morning by your own before re-joining the
group. We take lunch at a fine restaurant in town. Our exploration of Phnom Penh continues on the fascinating cultural heritage of Phnom Penh. The golden edifice of the Royal Palace with its Silver Pagoda and the exceptional Khmer crafts at the National Museum are our afternoon highlights. The day trip ends with a “cyclo” ride back to the ship through the bustling streets of downtown Phnom Penh. Take some rest in your spacious cabin or join other fellow passengers at the bar for refreshing drinks before our captivating evening activities start. In the early evening a barbecue dinner on the sun deck commences. The dinner is accompanied with an Apsara dance performance. You have to witness the brilliance and richness of this dance along with the soothing sounds of the traditional music. As the evening unwinds, enjoy your supper with a good glass of wine and marvel at the skyline of Phnom Penh, and the calming
flow of the Tonle River.
