Top Mekong Cruises to Vietnam and Cambodia 2024



FAQs

Mekong Cruises from Vietnam to Cambodia offer 2 different directions: upstream (from Vietnam) or downstream (from Cambodia). Some people prefer downstream cruises because of flight to Siem Reap is easier to find and book. So it depends on your plan and available tickets you can choose any direction because they offer similar experiences and visiting places. 

Each country offers a different visa policy, for the cruise between Vietnam and Cambodia, we will separate to two different routes:

  • Upstream: You can get both Vietnam & Cambodia visas on arrival with an approval letter for Vietnam and pay stamp fees at the airport or river border.
  • Downstream: You can get a Cambodia visa on arrival when you arrive for a Vietnam visa (since you could not get a visa on arrival at the border, so you need to make a visa before arriving). We could support you to do an urgent visa at Vietnam Embassy in Cambodia with fees of 85 USD if you don't have a visa before arriving.

I hope this information will help you to know how to do it or please contact our travel consultant if you need more help.

There are nearly 20 cruises in the Mekong River run between Vietnam & Cambodia from budget to luxury options. The best cruise is depend on your wish, below is some of my suggestion:

  • Best boutique Mekong cruise Vietnam Cambodia: Jayavarman Cruise (Price from $300++/person/night)
  • Best Luxury cruise: Aqua Mekong Cruise (price from 900++/person/night)
  • Best value cruise: RV Mekong Prestige II Cruise (price from 300 ++/person/night)

I hope you can find your best option or contact our travel consultant to find a suitable one.
