Itinerary Highlights

  • Stroll the narrow, winding streets of atmospheric Hoi An, lined with quaint homes and decorated with colourful silk lanterns (Vietnam)
  • Embark on a cruise in beautiful Bai Tu Long Bay, where spectacular sculpted limestone islands rise from serene, turquoise waters (Vietnam)
  • Explore Hue’s walled citadel, discovering lavish palaces and gardens (Vietnam)
  • Boat through the famous Mekong Delta (Vietnam)
  • Motorbike the twists and turns of the iconic Hai Van Pass (Vietnam)
  • Grab a Vietnamese coffee in a cosy cafe in Hanoi's lively Old Quarter (Vietnam)
  • Deviour delicious Vietnamese and Cambodian cuisine on fantastic food tours (Vietnam and Cambodia)
  • Flag a tuk tuk and explore the awe-inspiring temples consumed by the jungle at Angkor (Cambodia)
  • Visit to Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum and the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek which document Cambodia’s grisly past during the Khmer Rouge’s murderous rule (certainly not a 'highlight' in the usual sense). The museum 'preserves a tragic period in history with the aim to encourage visitors to be messengers of peace'. Be prepared for a profoundly upsetting experience. (Cambodia)
