A fantastic trip from sites in Hanoi, Vietnam and Halong Bay, a wonderful 5-day cruise on the Mekong River through Laos, and culminating with our stay in Siem Reap, Cambodia and visit to Angkor Wat. Our Vietnamese guide Dung was a wealth of knowledge and took care of our every need. Bravo Road Scholar for another phenomenal adventure!

This reviewer did not give a star rating.

The Mekong and Icons of South East Asia is a memorable trip. It was note worthy for the abundant and variety of experiences that Road Scholar provided, for the extraordinary guide Thuy who made our trip exceptional and for the understanding of the people and of the turbulence of the history of that part of the world that, for most of us, is limited to knowing only about the Vietnam war and Pol Pot's campaign of extermination in Cambodia. My wife and I strongly recommend this trip.


One of the best Road Scholar programs I've ever been on. What an amazing part of the world to experience -- and the food was truly incredible!


An incomparable trip! We loved everything about it: our guide Thuyen, the agenda for our trip, the variety of experiences, and our fellow travelers. Every day was full with enough down time to not get too tired. It was a busy two weeks though and no opportunity was lost for us to experience the 3 countries we visited. I recommend it highly.


Knowledgeable, accessible guides and a well planned variety of activities, historical background and sightseeing made this a perfect introduction to Southeast Asia.


My trip was well-organized and well-run but included spontaneous and delightful moments too. The group was inclusive and the activities fascinating.


This is a wonderful thought provoking adventure. Three different cultures, three World Heritage sites, and a river voyage on the Mekong, all in two weeks. Plus, the program had a truly outstanding coordinator, one of Road Scholar's best. What else could anyone ask for?


I've always wanted to visit SE Asia. This trip was a great introduction to the history, people and culture of the region. I learned so much and saw so many amazing sites, from the bustle of Hanoi, to the quiet morning bike ride through Luang Probang, the shores of the Mekong to the awe inspiring temples of Angor Wat. Our group leader, Thuyen, was an exceptional guide. This is our second Roads Scholar trip, and like our first, I've seen and learned enough to know I'd like to return.....


Exceed my expectation of just seeing Angkor Wat. Hanoi and Laos were great experiences. Just beware that Laos (Mekong River) was very smoky in March when we went.


A great trip, go for it!!!


This was a great trip because of the 3 different locations of the trip, all different and interesting.


The trip we recently completed to VietNam, Laos and Cambodia was fabulous. Activities were varied, educational and interesting. The group stayed enthusiastic and felt they were learning for the entire trip. Time in the cities was busy and stimulating. Time on the river motor relaxing. Thuy, our guide, was the best. We trusted her to get us transported and assist us with immigration activities. Highly recommended.
