April 11 – 12, 2010: Our GAP Adventures Roam Cambodia tour group departed Sihanoukville and crossed the border into Vietnam.
UPDATE: Gap Adventures is now GAdventures and the equivalent tour offered today is Cambodia on a Shoestring. Like our tour in 2010, this is a YOLO style trip with a basic service level. We highly recommend GAdventures and have used them for over five trips between the two of us.
After crossing the Cambodian-Vietnam border and taking a local ferry boat, we arrived at our destination of Châu Đốc. Châu Đốc is located in the Mekong Delta and we spent time on a boat observing life on the Mekong River. We also had the opportunity to tour a village and learn from the locals about their livelihood.
Before sunset members of our group hopped on the back of motos and headed up Sam Mountain for great views of the surrounding area and to view the lovely sunset.
