Sail down Mekong River to observe a hilly terrain of evergreen rainforest trees, open grasslands and savannas, marshlands, and upland plateaus. One of the longest rivers in the world, this "Mother of Water" runs through six countries, including China, Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, and Thailand. Stroll down the narrow streets of fishing villages on the riverbanks and buy fresh fish, silk, or glazed coconut. Visit one of the caves near the river and see many statues of Buddha. Popular stops along the river include the towns Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, the gateway to Ankor Wat.

It is imperative the mini cruise on the typical local boats sailing on the river Maekhong. We had a little discussion with the owners of the boats because we had to leave our passports before leaving, it seems the prescription legislation, then everything very smoothly. We approached the Burma and we did stop in Laos. from a distance there is a difference between the three countries. It's still a fun and interesting experience that should be lived
