2008 Laos & Cambodia Experience:14 day Cambodia, Laos & Thailand Tour

2008 Laos & Cambodia Experience - 14 days

Discover a riverside cave filled with thousands of Buddha sculptures.

As you gaze up from your boat into a riverside cave filled with thousands of Buddha sculptures, you will come to know the gentle spirit of the people of Indochina.

Cambodia's Angkor Wat rightly takes pride of place as one of Asia's most significant and awe-inspiring sites, but there is so much more to discover in the region. The Khmer capital, Phnom Penh, sits on the confluence of three rivers and is said to be the most beautiful of Indochina's French capitals. And neighbouring Laos is where you will meet devout monks and hilltribe farmers, experience lush tropical landscapes and thundering waterfalls, and visit markets full of fabrics, handicrafts and delicious local snacks.

Go Deluxe: When you settle into the luxurious Anantara resort in the Golden Triangle, you will find it hard to believe that such fantastic facilities are all yours to enjoy in such an enchanting part of Asia.

Not ready to go home yet?: Why not discover exciting, little-visited vestiges of the Khmer kingdom on one of our unique day trips following your journey. Try the ‘Koh Ker Jungle Explorer’ or ‘Phnom Kulen Mountain Adventure.’

Ask our travellers: "As independent travellers of many years, we were a little unsure as to whether we would appreciate the experience of a guided tour, but with the wonderful places, lovely hotels, friendships and excellent variety of food, all experienced without worry or frantic research, it was excellent!"
