Vietnam and Cambodia photography tour 14 days

An exciting river and land adventure through the heart of Indochina: from Vietnam’s bustling Saigon and picturesque Mekong Delta region, up-river to the fascinating Cambodian capital Phnom Penh, before heading west via the mysterious & dramatic, jungle-clad temples of Angkor to Thailand’s vibrant Bangkok.

Tour’s Program

Morning arrival in Saigon, meet your tour leader and transfer to a downtown hotel. Introductory presentation by Gary concerning some of the techniques, aesthetics and ethics of Travel Photography, followed by a leisurely afternoon to recover from your flight: explore the area, browse the markets or just relax in a cafe and watch the non-stop spectacle of the city’s traffic! (Photographic themes: – Saigon street life, city scenes)
Day tour of some of the City’s sites including the bustling Chinatown district of Cholon, the War Museum, Jade Emperor Pagoda and Saigon’s own Notre Dame Cathedral. (Photographic themes: – Saigon street life, city scenes, markets, pagodas, French colonial period architecture)
Departure from Saigon for a visit to the fascinating Vietcong tunnel system at Cu Chi before continuing south to the scenic riverside, Delta town of Cai Be for an afternoon boat cruise through the maze of waterways. Discover the region’s picturesque scenery, and the local cottage industries and handicraft manufacturing of the, still very traditional, villages. Overnight in Cai Be Town. (Photographic themes: – country scenes, historical sites, Mekong Delta scenery, cottage industries)
Morning visit to Cai Be’s traditional floating market followed by a canoe tour of the former Vietcong jungle base at Xe Quit. After lunch we’ll head for Can Tho – the Delta’s most important commercial and administrative centre. Afternoon at leisure to explore this friendly riverside town or check-out the interesting Mekong Delta Museum. (Photographic themes: – floating markets, historical sites, river life)
Early morning boat ride to check out the nearby morning market; one of the busiest and most photogenic of the Delta’s floating markets, before heading west to the small riverside town of Chau Doc near the Cambodian border. Visit the sacred Sam Mountain for sunset and spectacular views before returning to Chau Doc in the evening. (Photographic themes: – floating markets, river life, country life, landscapes, pagodas.)
Back on the Mekong for a morning departure by boat for Phnom Penh. Lunchtime arrival and check-in to a small, comfortable, downtown hotel. Time to stretch your legs with an introductory walking tour, taking in the Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda and lively waterfront area. (Photographic themes: – River scenes, landscapes, Phnom Penh street scenes, historic buildings; French colonial style and Buddhist temples.)
Day tour of some of the sites of Cambodia’s fascinating capital city; the bustling Central Market, the infamous ‘Killing Fields’ site and the highly moving Khmer Rouge Genocide Museum at Tuol Sleng.(Photographic themes: – street scenes, markets, people, architecture, historical sites.)
Up-country through Cambodia’s scenic countryside to the small provincial town of Siem Reap in Western Cambodia – our base for the next few days and jumping off point for the nearby Angkor Temple complex. Stops on the way at the famous ‘spider village’ of Skuon, (tasting not compulsory), the rarely visited but well preserved 10th century temple of Kuhananokor and lunch by the Tonle Sap Lake. A dusk visit to the atmospheric ruins of Banteay Kdei completes our day. (Photographic themes: – landscapes – countryside, villages, rural life, ‘on the road’.)
Angkor; an unforgettable two-day tour of this fabulous site – its vast jungle clad temples and mysterious stone carvings. A comprehensive tour of the major sites – plus some lesser known ones – including sunrise and sunset visits. (A detailed itinerary of our Angkor visit is available upon request.) (Photographic themes: – architecture, historical sites – ruined temples, dawn at Angkor Wat – landscapes, jungle/forest – flora and fauna)
Off the beaten track with a morning trip to the remote site of Beng Melea Temple – until recently off limits due to appalling roads and uncleared mines – but for the few who have visited, certainly one of the most memorable temple sites. Stop off at the lively rural market Dam Dek and afternoon at leisure in Siem Reap – relax by the pool, a visit to the unusual landmines museum or the local markets?(Photographic themes: – rural markets and villages, landscapes, historical sites, rarely photographed temples.)
Spectacular boat journey across the Tonle Sap Lake, past the ‘flooded forest’ and Prek Toal bird sanctuary and on down the Sangker River and its floating and stilt-house fishing villages to the town of Battambang. Stop off on the way to visit the Prek Toal community water hyacinth weaving project. Time of arrival will depend upon water levels. (Photographic themes: – river and lake scenes, floating fishing villages, country scenes, landscapes.)
Morning ride through the paddy-fields on Battambang’s famous ‘bamboo train’, (we’ll explain later!), before a departure for the fascinating river port town of Kompong Chnang. Tour of the bustling town and markets on foot and by boat – since half the town is actually floating on the Tonle Sap River! In the afternoon we’ll continue, via the hilltop pagodas of former capital Udong – south to Phnom Penh.(Photographic themes: – landscapes, country life.)
Morning transfer to Phnom Penh airport. End of service
