TREASURES OF INDOCHINA

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.
