Photos from Our Travelers: A Luxury Tour of Vietnam and Cambodia
Travelers on an Artisans of Leisure private cultural tour through Vietnam and Cambodia shared these images from their visits to the Mekong Delta, Hue, Hoi An, Danang, Siem Reap, Angkor and Lake Tonle Sap.
A private boat ride on the canals of the Mekong Delta in Vietnam is a great way to see the local lifestyle.

Incense is an important part of Buddhist rituals. We take our travelers to see how it’s made during a visit to a local incense factory.

We take travelers to view Cham art and learn about the cultural treasures of the Hindu civilization that once ruled central Vietnam.
This is a view from our favorite luxury beach resort in Vietnam, the Nam Hai. Watching the sunset from China Beach is a perfect way to end a day of private cultural touring around Hoi An.
The Bayon at Angkor Thom is another iconic and sure-to-impress site at the Angkor complex.
Jungle once covered much of the Angkor site. Here at Ta Prohm, nature has been allowed to continue its efforts.
Banteay Srei, a 10th-century temple, of is a bit off Angkor’s regular tourist track…
…but its exquisite stone carvings make it a highlight.
Other excursions we arrange around Siem Reap include a private boat ride among the floating villages of Tonle Sap, Cambodia’s largest lake.
