2008 Indochina Explorer:18 day Laos, Vietnam & Cambodia Tour

2008 Indochina Explorer - 18 days

As day breaks in Asia experience monks, markets and more.

Rise at dawn to join a thousand monks as they collect alms, experience a fish market as it comes to life, and witness sunrise over Angkor Wat on our ‘Indochina Explorer.’

From sleepy riverside towns and villages to bustling urban metropolises, your imagination will be stirred by Indochina’s gems. Begin in Cambodia, where Angkor Wat is sure to captivate you, and continue to Vietnam to experience her most important highlights from south to north. End your holiday in Laos, the area’s least-visited, yet most atmospheric destination. From quiet waterways to buzzing streams of motorbikes, you won’t soon forget your experience on our all-encompassing Explorer.

Ask our Travellers: "The Indochina Explorer exceeded our expectations in every respect. Our tour leader was outstanding, and your local guides provided fascinating insights into their countries. Our group – a lovely mix of Australians, New Zealanders, Canadians and Brits – was a big factor in our enjoyment." G. Oosterhuis - UK

Tip's for your Holiday: Early risers will love a visit to the Hoi An fish market at dawn – a maze of conical hatted mayhem and a photographer’s dream – or sleep in on your free morning; remember, its your holiday!

Responsible Travel: You will get to know hilltribe minority people by visiting their villages, and your travel is low-impact whenever you opt for a cyclo or tuk-tuk along the way. There are many things you can do while in Asia to travel more responsibly. To help, read our online Guide to Responsible Travel before you arrive.
