Le Cochinchine From Angkor to Ho Chi Minh City Down Stream 7 Days


Tour description: Today we will Visit Prasat Kravan with its unique brick sculptures and Ta Prohm. One of the area's most beautiful temples, Ta Prohm has been relatively untouched since it was discovered and retains much of its mystery.

Visit as well Takeo, Chau Say Tevoda and Thommanon. Dinner and overnight at Prince d’Angkor hotel. Today Dinner included

We recommend you do not over- cool your cabin as the sudden change from the outside temperature to a chilled cabin can bring on colds, respiratory illnesses and even stomach upsets.
