Mekong River

Feb 18, 2018 - Jahan


A glowing red sun greeted us as we cruised to Wat Hanchey. We immediately came ashore and took a walk or motorbike ride to the top of the hill to explore the 7th century pre-Angkorian temple. After a fascinating wander around the village, we witnessed a blessing by Theravada Buddhist monks on board Jahan.

After lunch and a series of talks by expedition staff, we visited a remote village - Angkor Ban. This visit allowed guests to witness first-hand day-to-day Cambodian life in an authentic setting.
