Vietnam - Cambodia Photo Tour / Workshop

A Cultural Experience Aboard Your Own Private Ship

Immerse yourself into the culture of distant lands and peoples and draw close enough to discover the hospitality and genuineness of character by those who welcome you to their homeland through the Vietnam - Cambodia photo tour. Here you will encounter a blend of culture, languages, and historical backgrounds that comprise the rich heritage of those who call this captivating landscape their home. Experience the excitement of exploring the rivers and waterways from a live-a-board riverboat home.

As an introduction to your photo tour, you will experience an unforgettable culinary sensation. Engage in a hands-on cooking experience and learn the flavors and techniques utilized to create mouth-watering local dishes. Take a moment, inhale, and take in the aroma of the bounty of the land being poured into every meal.

The next several days you will find your home on the waters of the Tien Giang, the Mang Thit River, the Hau River and the First River on a live-a-board riverboat. The accommodations are of the highest quality and every time you step foot back on board you’re greeted with refreshments and a warm welcome home.
Villages, orchards, rice fields, and floating markets are just a few of the sites that you’ll come to appreciate – especially as you encounter the people and come to understand the deep cultural roots stretching through Vietnam and Cambodia.

The countryside is imbued with a wealth of color as we experience the photo tour. A photographer’s dreamland of texture, color and history, just waiting to be appreciated for its natural beauty. Even if you’re not a photographer – this trip is perfect for you. The local guides that accompany us are very fluent in English and love to share the wealth of heritage intertwined throughout the land.

Whether floating along the river and enjoying an evening dinner aboard your vessel, visiting ancient temples, or discovering the genuinely beautiful character of the people here, this is an experience worth sharing! Join us on this very special tour of Vietnam and Cambodia as we partake together in a photographic journey of color, culture and composition, capturing the most beautiful moments in life.
