Venture deep into the heart of Indochina, traversing the Southeast Asian peninsula through the vastly contrasting landscapes and fascinating heritage of three magnificent countries – vivacious Vietnam, enchanting Laos and captivating Cambodia.
– Experience the bustling city of Saigon
– Wander the traditional town of Hoi An
– Relax on an overnight cruise in Halong Bay
– Cruise the languid Mekong River to explore the Pak Ou Caves
– Discover awe-inspiring Angkor
Days 1-2: Fly to Saigon
Fly overnight to Saigon. On arrival, you will be met by your expert tour guide and transferred to your hotel. The rest of the day is at leisure.
Day 3: Discover Saigon
Sightseeing today includes a visit to Notre Dame Cathedral, the Central Post Office, Reunification Palace and the War Remnants Museum. Later, stroll through Cholon and Ben Thanh Market.
Day 4: Mekong Delta
Journey to Ben Tre to take a cruise on the Mekong. This area is called the ‘Rice Basket of Vietnam’, the rich and fertile lands producing a plethora of rice, coconuts, vegetables and tropical fruits. Paddle through the maze of palm-lined canals and get a glimpse of daily life on the Mekong Delta.
Day 5: Cu Chi Tunnels
Explore the amazing network of Cu Chi Tunnels, where you’ll see the legendary tunnel network used by the Viet Cong to infiltrate South Vietnam during the war. Later, fly to Danang and transfer to the UNESCO-listed city of Hoi An.
Day 6: Hoi An Walking tour
Take a morning walking tour of charming Hoi An, a wonderfully laidback, graceful and wilfully traditional town. Visit one of the oldest homes, still occupied by descendants of merchants that built it over 200 years ago. Also visit the elaborate Japanese Bridge, Hoi An Market and a local Chinese Pagoda. The afternoon is at leisure to visit the local markets or relax in a riverside cafe.
Day 7: Tra Que village
Drive out into the countryside to Tra Que, a small farming community where you can enjoy the lush green countryside and stroll through the gardens to see the farmers at work. Later, take a flight to Hanoi, a charming and richly historic city of lakes, parks and shaded boulevards and Vietnam’s capital.
Days 8: Halong Bay Junk Cruise
Spend the day aboard a traditionally designed junk cruising amongst the spectacular seascapes, fringed by jagged karst formations jutting from emerald waters. Halong Bay, with its 1,600 islands and islets, was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994 and is a vision of awe-inspiring beauty. It isn’t hard to see why it is one of Vietnam’s most popular destinations. Enjoy fresh meals on board and spend the night anchored amongst the magnificent seascapes. Return to Hanoi the following day and in the evening, watch a performance of the famous water puppets.
Day 9: The quintessence of Tonkin
Rise early to enjoy a glorious sunrise over Halong Bay’s karst formations as you sail back to the port. Return to Hanoi after brunch. This evening, attend The Quintessence of Tonkin show, a spectacular open-air performance celebrating the rich history of northern Vietnam.
Day 10: Fly to Luang Prabang
An enchanting city, Luang Prabang is the quintessential image of Laos – a place of vivid colours, an extremely rich heritage and enduring French legacy. The afternoon is free for your own exploration. Ascend Phousi Hill for delightful city views and browse the wares at the bustling market.
Day 11: Discover Luang Prabang
Rise early to watch a Takbat alms-giving ceremony. Visit Wat Xieng Thong, then cruise along the Mekong River to see the Pak Ou Caves. Return to Luang Prabang and visit Thin Hong and Ban Xong Khong Village en route.

Fly to Siem Reap and visit Banteay Srei Temple. Climb to the summit of Pre Rup Temple at sunset for a spectacular view of the surrounding landscape.
Day 14: Explore Angkor Wat
The Angkor Archaeological Park encompasses over a thousand temples, all the remains of different capitals of the Khmer Empire between the 9th and 15th centuries. Rising early, the tour begins at the walled city of Angkor Thom where you’ll pass through the magnificent South Gate. At Angkor Thom’s centre is the enigmatic Bayon, a breathtaking temple of innumerable sculptural decorations. Also admire the Elephant Terrace and the Terrace of the Leper King. The rest of the day is dedicated to the indescribable Angkor Wat, the most magnificent and best preserved of all of Angkor’s treasures. It is easy to while away an afternoon in its shady precincts, examining its wealth of fascinating and intricate embellishments.
Day 15: Tonle Sap & Beng Melea
Enjoy a morning cruise on the Tonle Sap Lake where you can see the floating villages and observe the way of life of these lake communities. Back on dry land visit Beng Mealea, a mysterious temple completely overrun by the jungle – release your inner adventurer and explore. On the way back to Siem Reap, visit Les Artisans D’Angkor, a workshop which teaches traditional crafts to local people.
