For me, travilling in Vietnam & Cambodia and some other countries in Asia, you should choose a bit diffrent way, I mean something not luxury, something really local. So you could understand their live, their people. It's better than siiting in a luxuzy cabin and see things you've already seen.

Hello,

Each person has her ( his) choice for this cruise. Anyway, in order to explorer the daily life of local people living in the Mekong delta, I think you sould take 2 days trip from Saigon to Can Tho. You could have a day more in Can Tho to visit the flowting markets such as Cai Rang & Phong Dien before heading to Chau Doc where you take the express boat trip to Phompenh ~ 5 hours boating.

In Chau Doc, you could visit Sam moutntain and it's temple & the fishing villages....

Enjoy the trip!

I don't think taking a luxury (or upscale I should say) cruise will disable you from getting interactive with the locals. Most cruises right now do offer day trip to enable guests to explore the surroundings. We are about to use Jayavarman , will write a trip report at the end of the trip

Mekong keeps always it's charme and I think if someone does a trip in Vietnam, a 4-5 days trip in the Mekong Delta River will be recommanded!
