Experience a range of contrasts, from French-colonial houses to Chinese temples; bustling markets to designer boutiques; and flavourful street food to high-end restaurants. Cyclos vie with mopeds for space on main roads whilst centuries-old architecture emerges from the shadows of modern skyscrapers in Ho Chi Minh City, formerly Saigon. The unique karst scenery of Halong Bay is truly stunning and the coastal cities of Hu and Hoi An boast tranquil rivers where fisherman still live a simple life.
In Cambodia, people are drawn to the intricately carved Temples of Angkor, yet there is much more to see. We include the capital Phnom Penh where the Mekong and Ton Le Sap Rivers merge overlooked by the shimmering Royal Palace. Kep, founded as a seaside retreat for the French elite, is a sleepy town in the idyllic National Park where the sunset over the hills of Kampot highlights the beauty of the scenery. We have created this holiday to ensure you take in the highlights, hidden gems, unique cultural experiences, sights, sounds and scents of these two countries in an unhurried manner.
