Best of Cambodia, Laos & Vietnam

Duration
18 Days
Prices From:
US$ 4,219

FIRST-CLASS | PRIVATE-GUIDED: Enjoy the best of three Southeast Asian countries. In Cambodia, explore the temple ruins of Angkor Wat, before connecting into Laos to see Luang Prabang’s shrines and monastic traditions. Then explore the whole of Vietnam from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City, visiting Halong Bay, Hue, and Hoi An along the way.


This 18-day Southeast Asian vacation takes you to the best sites across Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam, including the temples of Angkor Wat, Luang Prabang, Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hue, Hoi An, and Ho Chi Minh City. It features first-class accommodations and private tours. 

Start in Cambodia and Siem Reap, your gateway to the most splendid ruins in Southeast Asia, the temples of Angkor. A full day lets you explore several of the ruins, including the 12th-century Khmer capital, Angkor Thom, and the hidden ruins of Ta Prohm, which was only rediscovered in the late 19th-century and is largely still overgrown with banyon trees and jungle vines. In the afternoon, see the slanting light hit the walls and carvings of Angkor Wat, the largest temple structure on the planet and undoubtedly the peak of Khmer architecture. It’s a masterwork unlike any other temple. Spend another day exploring the exquisitely-detailed women’s citadel, Banteay Srei, known for its red sandstone colour, Banteay Samre, and Tonle Sape, the great lake that is the heart of Cambodia’s fishing industry. 

Fly onwards to Laos, Southeast Asia’s lesser-known delight, and Luang Prabang, a UNESCO-listed city defined by its temples and monastic culture. Make the dawn wake-up call to see the saffron-robed monks collecting alms on the main street. Then visit some local temples before heading to the sacred Pak Ou Buddha Caves, filled with thousands of images of the Buddha. Afterwards, enjoy an idyllic rest alongside the Kuang Sii Waterfalls. Back in Luang Prabang, you’ll visit the National Museum, formerly the Royal Palace, which will answer many of your questions about this enigmatic country. You’ll also climb the 350 steps up Phou Sii Hill to enjoy the best views of the city and surrounding hillside.

Fly to Hanoi and begin your journey through Vietnam from North to South. Hanoi is often called Southeast Asia’s best travel bargain, but it’s also an elegant capital with some of the most beautiful colonial architecture in the country. Tour the city to see Ho Chi Minh’s embalmed body at the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, admire the Buddhist temple of One Pillar Pagoda, and explore the hidden shops and winding alleyways of Hanoi’s Old Quarter, a magical urban place of French colonial architecture and excellent restaurants. Connect to the coast and reach Halong Bay, known for its thousands of karst islands jutting out of the shimmering waters. You’ll board a traditional junk boat for an overnight cruise on the bay, visiting local caves and grottoes and enjoying the peerless view from the water. Back on the mainland, connect back to Hanoi and fly south to Hue in Central Vietnam. 

Hue was once the seat of the Nguyen Dynasty and is home to Vietnam’s greatest imperial treasures. A half day tour will take you on a cruise along the Perfume River to Thien Mu Pagoda, the tallest religious building in Vietnam, where you’ll disembark. Continue to the Imperial Citadel, an opulent fortress that was home to royals before Vietnam was colonized, and the Royal Fine Arts Museum, which houses many of the greatest treasures. Head along the coastline to Hoi An, widely-considered the most beautiful and relaxing town in Vietnam. You’ll stroll alongside beautiful old colonial buildings and through lively markets, while also spotting landmarks such as the 400-year-old Japanese bridge. One day, head on a bike ride through surrounding villages to experience life as it has been in rural Vietnam for hundreds of years. You’ll have another day at leisure to relax at the beach before connecting south to Ho Chi Minh City. 

Ho Chi Minh City is the largest city in the country and a sprawling metropolis formerly known as Saigon. A half-day tour will take you across the city to learn about the end of the Vietnam War, as well as Vietnam’s imperial past. During your tour, you’ll visit the Reunification Palace, formerly the Presidential Palace of South Vietnam, the Museum of Vietnamese History, and the Jade Emperor Pagoda, known for its intricate Taoist carvings and enchanting atmosphere. While based in Ho Chi Minh City, you’ll also head outside of the city to explore the Mekong Delta, a lush region of rice paddies, fishing villages, and canals that is the rice bowl of the nation. Another day, visit the Cu Chi Tunnels to see the elaborate network of underground fortifications and passages that allowed the Viet Cong to wage guerilla warfare during the Vietnam War. 

At the end of your stay, connect to the airport in Ho Chi Minh City for your departure.

This is the most Indian of all the temples in Angkor and in the words of H.W. Ponder, is a fairy palace in the heart of an immense and mysterious forest. Continue to Banteay Samre, is built under Suryavarman II and Yasovarman II in the early 12th century, it is a Hindu temple in the Angkor Wat style. Named after the Samré, an ancient people of Indochina, the temple uses the same materials as the Banteay Srei.

Then continue to Ton Le Sap Lake, the largest fresh water lake in South East Asia, is the lifeblood of the Cambodian fishing industry. The Mekong River, from as a far away as Phnom Penh, reverses the direction of the Ton Le Sap river to bring an overflow of water and silt to support both rice growing and the breeding fish of many sizes and varieties.

Half Day Saigon City Tour including Presidential Palace and History Museum

Beginning in the centre of the city, the first stop on today's itinerary is Reunification Palace. Formerly named the Presidential Palace, this important city landmark was assured its place in history on 30th April 1975, when the first North Vietnamese tanks rumbled past, signalling the Fall of Saigon and ultimately the end of the Vietnam War. Now a museum complete with period meeting areas, war rooms and a basement communication centre, after your visit, walk the short distance to Notre Dame Cathedral. At the centre of HCMC's government district, this romantic church dates back to the late 19th century and is a popular backdrop for wedding photographs. Across the street from the cathedral is the city's striking French colonial-era post office, whilst Hotel de Ville de Saigon, officially Ho Chi Minh City Hall, is another of the city's more prominent buildings. The Museum of Vietnamese History is housed in yet another fine example of Sino-French architecture. Dating back to the 1920s, it contains an excellent series of exhibits dating from the Bronze Age to the Nguyen dynasty, the last ruling family of Vietnam.

As an alternative to the Museum of Vietnamese History, visit the elegant Fine Arts Museum with its impressive collection of ancient and modern art and sculptures, or the War Remnants Museum, which is primarily dedicated to the Vietnam War but also includes exhibits dating back to the French colonialist period and the first Indochina War.

The final stop today is the unforgettable Jade Emperor Pagoda. With the pungent smell of incense hanging heavy in the air and an interior packed full of ornate carvings and fierce-looking statues, this Taoist temple is one of the most atmospheric places of worship in the city. Transfer back to your hotel after your visit or alternatively be dropped off at Ben Thanh market for personal exploration and a spot of souvenir hunting.

Today you will explore one of the country's most enchanting landscapes travelling by car to the Delta town of Cai Be before boarding the Cai Be Princess, a traditional bamboo-covered wooden boat.

After two hours drive to Cai Be from Ho Chi Minh city, the visitors are getting on board of a motorised boat to take a breeze drive in Mekong river. At Tan Phong Islet, board a small row boat to better explore the canal's hidden mangroves. On the island, visit an ancient Mandarin house dating from the 19th century where several generations of the same family live together. You will also visit some interesting home factories to see how local products such as coconut candy and puffed rice (the local equivalent of popcorn) are made, and learn about the drying process for longan fruit, another cottage industry in the Delta. Lunch awaits you at Le Longanier, a superb Indochinese villa located in a lush tropical garden by the river and surrounded by fruit orchards. Following lunch and a short walk along a beautiful canal, you reach Ba Bon bridge at around 3:30 PM for your transfer back to Ho Chi Minh City.

Day 17

Half Day Cu Chi Tunnels Tour

Synonymous with the Vietnam War and a testament to the determined spirit of the Vietnamese, the underground network of passages at Cu Chi is a fascinating day trip out of the city.

Work on the tunnels began during the war against the French in the 1940s and over the next 25 years as the conflict with America escalated, they were improved and expanded to create an underground city of meeting areas, storerooms, living quarters and much more. The tunnels allowed the Viet Cong to control a vital area of South Vietnam and at their height, extended for more than 200KM in length and stretched from what was then Saigon to the Cambodian border.

Preserved as a memorial park, a small section of this remarkable network is open to the public and there is the option to go below the surface to visit the tunnel first hand. There is plenty of interest above ground as well and it is recommended to bring good footwear, sunscreen and a hat. Please note you may get a little dusty if you decide to go underground.
