TREASURES OF INDOCHINA 2022

A magnificent and varied adventure from Saigon, Hanoi and the Mekong to Laos and the temples of Angkor with an overnight cruise on Ha Long Bay - all in just 2 weeks away!

Indochina was essentially a French invention but while some vestiges of their colonisation still exist in stylish architecture and wide boulevards, the countries of Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam exude their own character and atmosphere: the serenity of Luang Prabang contrasts sharply with hectic Hanoi and sophisticated Ho Chi Minh City, while Siem Reap remains the lively gateway to the magnificent temples of Angkor.

This tour encompasses all the major sites and cities of three contrasting countries in a concise itinerary giving you a taste of the culture and way of life, including three nights in Siem Reap to explore the vestiges of a great civilisation and an overnight in Ha long Bay on board a luxury vessel to admire the emerald waters and thousands of towering limestone islands. Stay in 4-star hotels, centrally located to allow you to explore independently and taste the local cuisine in a nearby local restaurant.
