2009 Vietnam & Laos Explorer:14 day Vietnam & Laos Tour

2009 Vietnam & Laos Explorer - 14 days

The peaceful Thu Bon River brings you to ancient Hoi An.

With our 14-day Vietnam & Laos Explorer we combine our ‘Highlights of Vietnam’ journey with the ‘Highlights of Laos’. Experience the youthful vibe of Saigon, the tranquil waterways of the Mekong Delta, the charming old town of Hoi An and the wonder of Halong Bay. From Vietnam’s graceful capital we head to Laos and Vientiane. A journey to Laos is like taking a step back in time. Here, you will experience the laid-back lifestyle for yourself when you enjoy a riverside game of petanque. The early morning ritual of monks collecting alms in the monastery town of Luang Prabang is sure to be a highlight.

Saigon, Mekong Delta, Hoi An, Hue, Hanoi, Halong Bay  Vientiane, Luang Prabang.

Ask our Manager: "This journey offers travellers the very best of Vietnam and Laos, two of the hottest destinations in Southeast Asia."D. Szwarcburg - Vietnam Product Manager

Responsible Travel: Your cyclo tour through Hanoi’s Old Quarter and tuk-tuk travels through Luang Prabang lend themselves to low-impact tourism, which also helps you get to know our destinations face to face.
