The tree grows abundantly in the area and is one of Cambodia’s national symbols.

We did an overnight cruise on the Mekong River, visiting the floating market the following market. During the cruise we visited a popped rice factory and a noodle factory- interesting experiences in themselves. The river at sunset is just beautiful and the cruise boat is comfortable, with very compact cabins and an interesting shower arrangement. The floating market is an amazing demonstration of people’s resilience where they live aboard their boats, which are also shops. It is fun to have the bar come to you as you float by. An absolute must to do in Vietnam!
Totally brilliant. I read a previous review about poor standards resulting in illness on board. We had a truly wonderful experience just returning home yesterday. The company now use sanitisers at every opportunity including on tours and prior to visiting restaurant on board. Clearly personal hygiene is important. The company also supplies copious amounts of cool water including providing you with containers to refill. On board were nearly 90 passengers and whilst a few had the usual slightly upset stomachs, the vast majority had an untroubled time. It is not unusual when travelling in Vietnam and Cambodia, or even Indian subcontinent for us Westerners to react occasionally to different cuisine etc with minor stomach ailments. DO NOT let this detract from an amazing experience just ensure personal hygiene is of a high standard.Cambodia and its people were a source of inspiration to us with their positive outlook on the future, despite their recent violent history. Siem Reap with Angkor Wat is brilliant. Try Shinta Mani shack hotel a 5 star gem with a pool to die for. The Phare circus of acrobat performers in Khmer Rock show was totally enthralling. The countryside travelling downstream on the RV Marguerite and the tours arranged by Travel Marvel were a joy. The locals embrace life working the land and are proud to show you around their villages with very little hint of commercialism. Their simple life puts the frenetic Western lifestyle in perspective. What it may lack in variety of choice it gains in contentment.

We booked a 14-day holiday with MYWAYTRAVEL.COM and we cruised for 7 days out of the 14 days. Planning the tour, the tour itself, the local guides, and the boat; everything was superb and flawless. MY Way Travel’s staffs did their jobs brilliantly; they listened to us attentively. Angela was a very friendly and ever efficient waitress. She provided us varieties of excellent meals to choose from. We stayed in five-star hotels in Saigon and Siem Reap. It was indeed a holiday with lifetime memories. We went on a gentle walk in Siem Reap temples. We made friends with travelers from Britain and Australia, we got along very well. MY way travel service is good for middle age or older individuals and couples. It was an exceedingly brilliant holiday experience. We will certainly use My Travel again.
