Three Nights’ Cruise from Saigon to Phnom Penh, Vietnam

There can be no river as fascinating, or with such a diverse tapestry of life, as the Mekong River. On this 3-night cruise up river from Saigon to Phnom Penh, you’ll be amazed by the striking contrast of life on the bustling Vietnam Delta and the tranquility of rural Cambodia.

Pandaw is delighted to announce this twice-weekly cruise from October onwards on their classic boat, the RV Indochina Pandaw. The cruise passes from the vibrant, former French colonial port of Saigon, through the vast delta to travel along the main channel of the Mekong, into the rich Cambodian countryside.

In past years, the shorter cruise was offered as a segment of the Classic Mekong seven nights, between Saigon and Siem Reap (Angkor). However, in view of its growing popularity, Pandaw has decided to deploy a stand-alone boat for this shorter routing that enables passengers to make their own hotel arrangements in either Saigon or Phnom Penh, before and after the river journey.

No boat could be better equipped than the magnificent colonial-style RV Indochina Pandaw, built in Vietnam in 2014, and up till now operating in Myanmar. Now back home in Vietnam, she will receive an extensive refit. The boat has 30 x 16 m2 staterooms, with personal seating on the promenade deck outside. There is an enclosed dining room, deck bar, movie theatre, gym, library, boutique, and fully fitted spa. The itinerary covers much of the Mekong Delta with sampan trips through the mangroves and bamboo forests; horse cart rides through the idyllic countryside; and the highlight – a boat trip through the Gao Giong bird sanctuary.

Phnom Penh as the terminal point has enjoyed something of a renaissance, with numerous boutique hotels opening and a ‘foodie paradise’ of bars, bistros, and fine dining restaurants. Culturally, there is much to see, and the capital is an excellent point from which to visit the Cardamom Hills, deluxe coastal resorts and other attractions in Cambodia.

Included in the cruse: Excursions, Tea & Coffee, All meals and Expert guide.

Water Garden Sigiriya, Sri Lanka

While traveling with kids, it’s important to pick your hotels carefully. It’s easy to get caught up in the details and forget that for kids, it can be the little things that truly matter. It could be sleeping closer to your mom and dad in the same unit that’s important, or having the pleasure of a little pool to splash around in. In a nutshell, it’s not just about luxury!

Water Garden Sigiriya is a great place to be based while exploring the Cultural Triangle with your kids. With water streams and small lakes flowing through the property, it takes you back in time to the days of the legendary water gardens of the ancient Sigiriya Rock fortress.

Most importantly, it’s got some lovely duplex villas, which are ideal for families, since they have adjoining bedrooms – one with a double bed for the parents and the other with twin beds for the kids. The hotel’s butlers are well experienced in interacting with children and always ready to take them for walks around the property, or on a local bike ride.

On our visit to Water Garden Sigiriya, Khiri Travel was particularly impressed with its family-oriented approach and their readiness to accommodate children.

Mövenpick Resort Bangtao Beach Phuket, Thailand

Mövenpick Resort Bangtao Beach Phuket blends the best of classic Thai and contemporary design, with a choice of 40 different rooms and suites. Situated on the east side of Phuket’s Laguna area, facing the Andaman Sea, it’s literally minutes away from the starting point of the Laguna Phuket Triathlon and other famed international racing events.

Classic and premier rooms are located in the main building with wonderful views looking over the gardens and the pool, while the exclusive luxury residences, suites, and penthouse, are only steps away from Bangtao Beach, offering ultimate relaxation and space. Each has its own kitchen and dining area, where you can have fun preparing your own meals, or entertaining friends with the chef and butler service.

The resort’s Palm Cuisine restaurant is designed to resemble a contemporary Thai spice market and offers a Thai menu, with spices that can be tailored to individual tastes, and well-informed staff who will happily make recommendations. Dishes are balanced with an extensive selection of beverages and wines from around the world. International dishes are also available upon request and prepared using the highest quality ingredients.

Children will love the resort’s Kids’ Club with its indoor mini-golf course and games. At the other side of the lagoon behind the hotel, an 18-hole par 71 golf green offers a truly challenging course for all levels of player.

This is the ideal hotel for families, or groups of friends wanting to holiday together, with lots of activities in the area to choose from.

Mount Inle Hotel, Nyaungshwe, Myanmar

Mount Inle Hotel is a boutique property in Nyaungshwe, the gateway town to Inle Lake. The design of the hotel reflects a combination of Balinese architecture and Thai modern style, served with the kindness and friendliness of Myanmar’s Shan people.

Ideally located in a quiet corner of the town, Mount Inle Hotel has 35 minimalist rooms with stylish décor. The peaceful, airy accommodations come with comfortable bedding, a pillow menu and premium amenities.

The uniqueness of the hotel is centered on its beautifully manicured gardens, with an organic vegetable garden that produces a variety of fresh vegetables used in the restaurant’s menu selection, which offers a broad variety of international, local and Thai dishes.

Perhaps the greatest advantage for staying at Mount Inle – compared to the luxury resorts on the eastern bank of Inle Lake – is its easy access to homey, local restaurants and the Nyaungshwe market, where you can easily mingle with the townsfolk for a friendly chat, or try out the local snacks.

The Red Mountain Estate Vineyards & Winery is also just a 15-minute bike ride away from the hotel, where you can dine and try out some of the local wines.

Tetebatu Mountain Resort, Lombok, Indonesia

Being only a small community, there are few hotels in Tetebatu, however, the Tetebatu Mountain Resort stands out as a perfect family getaway in a stunning rural landscape.

Situated in the center of this rural community, the crystal clear swimming pool and rooms overlook a panorama of iridescent-green rice fields and on a clear day, it’s easy to see in the distance, the imposing features of Mount Rinjani – the region’s active volcano.

Sadly, a disappearing sight in Lombok is the traditional Lumbung houses of the island’s Sasak people. However, this resort offers guests the chance for families to stay all together in one of its four traditional Mountain View houses with upstairs and downstairs bedrooms – a thrilling opportunity to experience local-style accommodation first hand. In addition, the resort offers a selection of comfortable double or twin bungalow accommodations.

There is also a number of cycling and hiking trails that start directly from the hotel and other activities in Tetebatu are just a short bike ride away!
