Hello,

My wife and I are planning to come and visit the region, and were thinking of a cruise on the Mekong for about a week.
Ideally, it would be either from Siem Reap to Ho Chi Minh on November 18/19, or from Siem Reap to Ho Chi Minh on November 25.
In case the options don't match our dates, we would also consider from Phnom Penh to Ho Chi Minch (arriving in HCM on Dec. 1st at the latest), or vice versa (Nov 18 or 19). Cruises between Siem Reap and Phnom Penh are also on option.
May I kindly ask you to sent me time tables and fares for these cruises, knowing we should be landing in Vietnam on Nov 17 and flying out on Dec 2?
Thank you in advance.
Kind regards,

Charles
