After breakfast head to Kompong Thom (approximately a 3.5 hour drive). On the way stop at Skuon, sometimes known in the local language as "Spiderville." It is famous with international visitors for its fried spiders. The tarantulas are hunted and then deep fried with a history dating back to when food was scarce during the rule of the Khmer Rouge. Apparently they are quite tasty, and are said to be good for the heart and lungs but no obligation at all to try one – we didn’t!

Continue on to Kompong Thom and enjoy lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch continue to Siem Reap and sit back and admire the scenery, watching local life as you pass by. Arrive at Siem Reap late in the afternoon.

Day 8: The magnificent temples of Angkor Wat

Begin your tour of the temples of Angkor Wat in the morning with a visit to Angkor Thom meaning 'Great City'. Built in the late 12th century under the reign of King Jayavarman VII, this was the final and the most long-lasting capital of the Khmer Empire. With an area of 9 square kilometres, Angkor Thom is filled with temples. In the heart of Angkor Thom is the National Temple of Jayavarman and the Bayon Temple - the centrepiece of the city with its eerie 216 serene stone faces. 

Continue on to visit the ancient monastery Ta Prohm, once home to more that 12,500 people and built in 1186 for the mother of King Jayavarman VII. The collapse of the Khmer Empire led to the current state of the temple - in ruins and covered by tropical forests - quite a sight and one to have your camera ready for. 

After lunching at a local restaurant, discover Angkor Wat, the iconic, largest and most well preserved Temple in the Angkor Archaeological Site. Constructed in the 12th century in honour of Vishnu, it is a delight to wander and explore. With many embossments surrounding this religious monument, it describes the legend of Hindu divinities and an immortal life. It is the symbol of Cambodia and has been recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. 

Overnight in Siem Reap: Siddharta (3 Star), Tara Angkor - Deluxe Room (4 Star), Angkor Palace Resort - Deluxe Room (5 Star)

Meals included: Breakfast and lunch 

Day 9: Siem Reap Countryside Tour 

This morning you will be collected from your hotel by tuk-tuk for a drive through the countryside to the Meanchey Community stopping at the Bakong Temple en route. Established in 802 AD it is one of the oldest temple cities near Siem Reap. After a stop for photographs and a brief background on the history of the Temple, head to Wat Roka, a large rural pagoda where you can learn about the Buddhist culture. Along the way, visit some local handicraft makers (pottery, weavers, blacksmiths) where you can see traditional skills and equipment being used and take a stroll through a local village market.

Next, take a relaxing Ox-cart ride through the nearby village and countryside. This ancient form of local transportation is still used today. While enjoying the ride you can take in the sights of the countryside, traditional buildings and ways of living. Make sure to have your camera handy to capture this unique journey. At the end of your Ox-cart ride take a stroll through the agricultural fields of rural Cambodia. Observe the farming techniques in an authentic setting - what you will see will depend on the time of year you visit and what season it is. 

The walk ends at a small rural farm that will also be where you have lunch. While seated in the shady farmland enjoy a selection of traditional Cambodian dishes prepared by a local family, try some locally grown fruit and enjoy a complimentary coconut refreshment straight off the tree. After lunch take a moment to relax in the hammock, take a wander around the farm or chat with the locals.  

Nearby the farm, located in the village of Cheasmorn, is the JB Foundation. Visit the free English language school in operation. You can even join in if you wish and share your own skills. Feel free to ask the children questions about themselves, the village and their studies, your guide or the local teacher can assist with any language barriers you may encounter.

After visiting the school head off on a leisurely bike ride through the villages and countryside of Meanchey Commune (you can also do this part of the tour by tuk-tuk if you prefer). The scenery is great out here and you will once again get to witness genuine Cambodian countryside life. Feel free to stop any time for photographs as you cross bridges and follow narrow dirt roads in a loop that takes you through several different villages. The bicycle ride ends back in the village of Cheasmorn where there will be a tuk-tuk waiting to take you back to Siem Reap. Arrive at your hotel at approximately 4.30 pm.

Travelbay Southern Vietnam Cruise

Please note: The route the cruise takes on the above map is the blue line from Saigon (1) to Phnom Penh (6)

How to get there:
This tour starts in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and ends in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

Travelbay works together with an excellent corporate flight booking company and is happy to provide you with a quote and organise your flights. We charge a $50 booking fee for this service. Alternatively, if you would like to arrange flights yourself you can find more information and suggestions here.

If you are wanting to know more about how far it is between destinations and how long your flight will take, you can visit www.travelmath.com and use their trip calculator.

Timezones:
To help you calculate the time difference we recommend World Time Buddy.

Visa information:

Vietnam
Most nationalities require a visa when travelling to Vietnam. You need to apply for and receive your visa before you leave Australia. This can be done up to 6 months in advance. 

It is best to obtain your visa directly from the Vietnam embassy. We have always found them to be very quick and reliable.You can find the Embassy instructions and more information here.

You can download the application form here.

Generally the following information is required:

  • Personal details.
  • One passport photo taken within the last year.
  • Your estimated dates of arrival into and exit from Vietnam.  Make sure you do not estimate or put a date later than you actually arrive.
  • Whether you want a single entry or a multiple entry visa.
    • Please note: if you are to exit and re-enter Vietnam on the same trip, you will need a multiple entry visa. For example, if you are doing a Vietnam & Cambodia tour and then going back to Vietnam (even if only for a night), you will need a multiple entry visa.
  • Address you will stay at in Vietnam – it is fine to put your initial hotel/place of stay.

Once you have completed the application form you will need to post this to the Vietnamese Embassy along with the following:

  • A valid passport. Please ensure your passport is valid for 6 months or more from the time of your return to Australia.
  • A return self-addressed prepaid envelope – we recommend registered or express post envelopes for both sending and receiving so you can track delivery
  • Visa fee. You can pay by post office money order or bank cheque. Please contact the embassy for the latest rates as these can change. Last time we checked in 2017, a single entry visa from the Vietnamese embassy was $95. A one month multiple entry visa $120 and a three month multiple entry visa $150 – we always check before we send our forms.
  • If 2 of you are travelling together you can post your passports together with the one money order.

The normal processing time is 3 working days once received by the embassy, but post seems a bit slow these days. Therefore, we recommend leaving a minimum of 10 working days, but why not do it even sooner! An express service is possible and will need to be arranged directly with the embassy. 

You can also apply in person at the Embassy in Canberra or the Vietnamese Consulate in Edgecliff, Sydney.

For more information or questions please ring the embassy – they are very helpful but at time it can take a few attempts to get through.

Important Information in relation to Vietnam Visa Approval letters

We do not approve of or support 3rd party Vietnam Approval Letters for the following reason: 

  • Vietnam Approval Letters are NOT Vietnam Visas.
  • There have been many reports of fake letters and fake companies providing letters. The Vietnam Embassy have issued warnings in this regard.
  • Even if you get a genuine letter on arrival in Vietnam you have to take your letter to a counter, queue up (sometimes for as long as an hour), pay a fee and get your Visa BEFORE you can pass through immigration – this can cause quite long delays at a time you would not want one.
  • We recommend that you obtain your Vietnam Visa through the Vietnam Embassy in Canberra or the Vietnam Consulate in Sydney prior to departure – this is very quick and simple and can be done by post.
  • Should you urgently need a letter and for some reason cannot obtain a visa prior to departure such as due to short notice, our colleagues in Vietnam can obtain a legitimate approval letter for you, but you will of course still have to go through the queue process on arrival in Vietnam.

If you decide to go to a 3rd party to obtain a Vietnam Visa letter we cannot take any responsibility for the consequences should you not be able to gain entry to Vietnam or experience delays.

Cambodia
Most nationalities require a visa to enter Cambodia.

A visa can be arranged on board before entering Cambodia and you will need the following information:

  • A completed visa application form (you can obtain the application form on board)
  • Your current passport with at least 6 months validity
  • One recent passport sized photograph 
  • Appropriate visa fee. The fee to arrange your visa on board is around USD37 (per person for a single entry 30 day visa). 

Some guests have asked about arranging a visa prior to arrival. If you choose to do this you will need the following information:

  • The date of your border crossing as per your itinerary
  • The immigration point where you will enter Cambodia is Kaam Samnor
  • Please note that E-Visas are not accepted for border crossings on the river
  • You will also need your passport and a recent passport photo.

    Currency information
    The currency used in Vietnam is the Vietnamese Dong and in Cambodia the Cambodian Riel. In Cambodia the USD is widely accepted. 

    What currency to take over there is a personal choice. Some people prefer to take US$ cash as a backup whilst others prefer to take AUD$ cash – it depends on what you are comfortable with. There are ATM machines readily available in Vietnam. Occasionally the older ATM's do not accept Australian debit cards and you may need to try a different ATM. 

    We recommend letting your bank know that you will be using your card in Vietnam to avoid them freezing any 'suspicious' activity.

    Tipping and Tour Guides:
    A few customers have asked us about tipping. Really this is a personal matter, not obligatory and at your discretion.

    Some like to provide the tour guide with a few dollars a day and a little less for the driver. If you love your guide you can of course offer more – it really is up to you. Tour guides will not generally join you when eating. If you would like your guide to join you, you will need to invite them. 

    Vaccination Information:
    Travelbay recommends you check with your doctor as to any immunisations that you may require or that are recommended for your travels.  Alternatively, you can visit The Travel Doctor or Travelvax for more information. 

    Climate:

    Vietnam

    Many people ask us about the weather in Vietnam.

    There is not one simple answer so we have prepared a more detailed reply which you can find here.

      Dry season: Generally November to March (with some regional variations). 
      Wet season: May to October (with some regional variations).

      Peak Season: November to March and July to August.

      Cambodia

      Cambodia lies in the tropics meaning that it is warm to hot year round and the climate is dominated by the alternating wet and dry seasons. Whilst it does rain in the wet season, there is no need to put off travelling at this time. The temples of Angkor Wat are at their most picturesque during the wet season and the forest comes to life.

      Dry Season: November to May
      Wet season: June to October
      Peak season: November to January

      Some interesting facts:

      Vietnam

      Population: 93.5 million

      Language: Vietnamese

      Predominant religion: 81% of the population has no religion followed by 9% Buddhist

      The Vietnamese language has six different tones. A change in tone changes the meaning of the word making the language somewhat difficult to learn (but English is widely spoken and the friendly locals are more than happy to help you with your Vietnamese pronunciation).

      Vietnam is one of the world’s last surviving one-party Communist states.

      Around 70% of the 93 million plus people that live in Vietnam, live in the countryside and over half the population are under 25.

      Cambodia

      Population: 15.15 million

      Language: Khmer

      Predominant religion: Buddhism (95%)

      It is hard to look past the dark history of the Pol Pot regime in the 1970’s where the Khmer Rouge terrorised the nation. From 1975 -1979 over 2 million people were killed, some estimates are closer to 3 million. As a result the country has spent the last 30-40 years rebuilding itself.

      Around half of the population is under 15.

      It was the Vietnamese who eventually stepped in to help Cambodia oust Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge in 1979.

      Cambodia was a French colony until 1953. Many of the older generation speak French and there is a legacy of French bakeries throughout the country.

      Angkor Wat was built in the early 12th century and is the largest religious monument in the world.
