This is the capstone post about our AmaWaterways Riches of the Mekong river cruise in early April 2018. Here we provide a summary of the trip as well as some over all impressions.
Vietnam and Cambodia
We leave our AmaWaterways ship by 8:30 on route to Saigon. This is another in our series on AmaWaterways Riches of the Mekong river cruise. Our previous post, Last night on AmaDara, described our last night on the ship.
Tonight will be our last one on board our Vietnam and Cambodia river cruise. This post is the ninth in our series about AmaWaterways Riches of the Mekong cruise. To catch up, you can start with our first post Hanoi: orderly Chaos or read our previous post Mekong Delta.
Studying the Khmer Rouge is like studying the devil. But that's what we did this morning on our second day in Phnom Penh. This post is part of our series on AmaWaterways Riches of the Mekong cruise. See yesterday's post on Phnom Penh or start at the beginning of the series Hanoi: orderly Chaos.
Phnom Penh means different things to different people. On AmaWaterways Riches of the Mekong, Phnom Penh means the hustle and bustle of a big city, great food and a reminders of the Vietnam war. This post is one in a series about our river cruise trip with AmaWaterways. Our last post, All aboard discussed our trip from Siem Reap and our first day on the ship, the AmaDara.
After a bit of a drive from Siem Reap we reach our destination - the AmaWaterways AmaDara. As noted in the title, this is one of a series of blog posts. To catch up, read our last two posts from Siem Reap. First on Anchor Wat and next on Khmer Temples. All posts describe the Riches of the Mekong river cruise from AmaWaterways.
The Mekong River basin is central to understanding the Khmer temples of the ancient Khmer Empire. This post is the fourth in our series about our AmaWaterways Riches of the Mekong trip. Yesterday we explored Angkor Wat. We are still in Siem Reap and today we visit several other temples from the ancient Khmer Empire.
