Luxury small ship river cruises in Asia



As far upstream as we can navigate due to constraints of time and water levels, Wat Hancheay is a fascinating complex of temples from all periods of Khmer art history.

A short climb up the hill from the river bank leads us to a large working monastic complex with a number of contemporary Buddhist structures. To the south are Cham period brick stupas of some note.

Also of interest here is an Angkor period temple situated at the foot of the hill 500 meters from our mooring position up the main highway. This temple has been well restored. The monks have started a museum of old Khmer agricultural and domestic implements that can be viewed in a caged hut close to where the main flight of steps opens onto the hill top.
