Vietnam

Starting in either Ho Chi Minh City or Cambodia’s Siem Reap, Avalon offers a spectacular itinerary along the serene Mekong River in this captivating country. In Ho Chi Minh City, visit the imposing Reunification Palace and War Remnants Museum on a guided walking tour, and experience the delights of Vietnamese cuisine at the Ben Than Market. Beyond the city are the infamous Cu Chi tunnels: an extraordinary network of tunnels used by the Viet Cong during the war. Cruise Cai Be Harbour for a tour of An Kiet House and gardens, and journey along the beautiful backwaters of the Mekong passing traditional floating markets and raft-house villages. With its mosques, temples, churches and pilgrimage sites, Chau Doc is a fascinating place to explore.
