2009 Inside Vietnam & Cambodia:21 day Cambodia & Vietnam Tour

2009 Inside Vietnam & Cambodia - 21 days

Cruise on Halong Bay with a hilltribe adventure, Mekong crossing and Angkor Wat still to come .

This 21-day journey is a perennial favourite – and its easy to see why. Beginning in Vietnam’s elegant capital, Hanoi, we explore the city by cyclo and take the time to get off the beaten track, with an overnight hilltribe stay in Mai Chau and a night aboard our private boat on magical Halong Bay. Journey south to dynamic Saigon, visiting the old imperial capital of Hue and charming Hoi An along the way. From here we travel deep into the Mekong Delta, before embarking on an exhilarating cross-border boat journey to Phnom Penh. Your journey ‘Inside Vietnam & Cambodia’ ends with Asia’s most memorable sight – the breathtaking temples of Angkor.

Ask our Travellers: "This trip was outstanding and we’re learnt so much. Our tour leader was the best I’ve ever encountered; right from the start we bonded as a group, and her warmth and exuberant energy was infectious. Her skills shine through, and the local guides were able to make our understanding a more personal event." G. Stephenson - Australia

Responsible Travel: Your Mai Chau homestay offers you a chance to learn about the lives of Vietnam’s ethnic minorities, and give back to them by visiting. In Phnom Penh, we learn more about the lives of Cambodia’s street children, and how you can help at the ChildSafe Centre.
