Day 8   

Mekong River

Today, enjoy scenic cruising along the Mekong, one of the world’s great rivers. The Mekong is truly the “Mother River of Southeast Asia,” sustaining civilizations through the centuries. Pass by some of the Mekong rice fields. The Khmer Empire was founded on a rice surplus, and rice is still the main staple of Vietnamese cuisine. We stop to visit a typical Khmer river community that is famous for its silk-weaving production. Return aboard for lunch. (B, L, D)
