Day 1 – Fly to HCMC from Australia – arrive late afternoon. (Overnight HCMC)
Day 2- Visit museum and Cu Chi tunnels (Overnight HCMC)
Day 3 - Taxi to somewhere and catch a 2 night cruise up the Mekong. (Overnight Boat)

Day 4 - En route to Phnom Penh (Overnight Boat or Phnom Penh land based)
Day 5 - Explore Phnom Penh - (Overnight Phnom Penh)
