    CF Mekong River Cruises offers authentic 3 days discovery cruises from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap, home of the magnificent world heritage site, Angkor Wat. We also offer 6 days cruises from Phnom Penh to Saigon and longer 8 day cruises from Saigon to Siem Reap with a visit to Phnom Penh. 

    All our Mekong river cruises are enchanted with a mysticism that hooks you from the moment you step ashore. At each destination you find a world rich in tragic history, tradition, exotic cuisines, and culture. Cruise tranquil interiors, and witness a pristine countryside of stunning tropical landscapes set with ancient Buddhist pagodas and charming villages. Each embodies a forgotten way of life, where farmers till paddy fields by hand, and fishermen cast their nets on glistening lakes. Most serene of all  be stunned by the beauty of Cambodia's long lost Angkor temples foremost among them Angkor Wat and Bayon.

    Then in sharp contrast, cruise with us to the pulsating cities of Saigon and Phnom Penh, places that challenge all your senses, each a kaleidoscope of exotic sights, smells, sounds, and tastes. Experience these sprawling cities; each a dynamic melting pot ready to be explored, from centuries old markets and winding streets to glistening designer boutiques. Nowhere on earth do old and new meet in such spectacular fashion.
