Just opened in early 2002, the new border crossing of Vinh Xuong offers an opportunity to explore the low land of the Mekong River from Vietnam to Cambodia. Experience river cruising and rapid photo-shooting amidst the beauty of riverine activities such as floating markets with sellers and buyers bargaining and exchanging goods from their boats, houses-on-stilts along the creeks, floating fishing villages, etc. The trip also takes visitors to the world of spectacular monuments and magical legends of the Angkorian architectural complex. Angkor, the biggest city in the world in the 9th-12th centuries, contains more than 100 monuments, including two dozen major temples. Some of the temples, such as Angkor Wat and Bayon, merit repeat visits at different times of day, as the reflections on their walls and labyrinthine interior spaces are transformed by light.
