vietnam & cambodia
With its ancient culture, beautiful scenery, Chinese and French influences, Vietnam is one of today’s most exciting destinations in South East Asia. Combine this with Cambodia’s Angkor, a vast city made up of dozens of structures dating back to the 9th to 14th centuries, one of the architectural wonders of the world, including Angkor Wat, the spectacular mother of all temples.
There are two ways to experience Vietnam & Cambodia:Land only programme or Land & Cruise
1. TAILOR MADE LAND PROGRAMME
This programme would normally include Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hoi An, Saigon, the Cu Chi Tunnels and the Mekong Delta in Vietnam. In Cambodia we would include Angkor Wat and possibly Pnohm Penh. There will be a number of river excursions and a few flights. We will customize the itinerary to suit your interests and time available.
In April 2018 we led an escorted tour to Vietnam & Angkor Wat and invite you to view our photographs in the Gallery below.
2. MEKONG RIVER CRUISE & LAND PROGRAMME
Your 11 day tour would begin in Vietnam’s bustling capital, Hanoi, followed by an excursion to breathtaking Ha Long Bay for an overnight sojourn. A short flight to Siem Reap, Cambodia, brings you to the gateway of the ancient Khmer empire.
