Laos, Vietnam & Cambodia Tour

Heritage of Indochina

Our ‘Heritage of Indochina’ tour showcases the cultural highlights of Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia; by taking you to the most interesting and varied locations in South-East Asia including some fabulous UNESCO world heritage sites.

Your heritage tour starts off in the World Heritage town of Luang Prabang, where you can join the locals in the traditional morning alms ceremony, where the monks parade through the streets collecting food and offerings. From here you move on to the early morning local markets, which are simply fascinating, before spending the day visiting the Royal Palace Museum and the country’s most historic and enchanting Temple Wat Xiengthong, with its roof sweeping low to the ground, representing the classical Luang Prabang style.

After a few days exploring Luang Prabang you take a short flight to Vietnam’s sophisticated capital of Hanoi. Once here you can walk down tree-lined boulevards and soak up the splendour of the French colonial architecture and explore the city’s old and French quarter with its extensive markets, art galleries, eateries and coffee shops. Journeying on you will also take a cruise through thousands of sharp limestone islands at the UNESCO heritage Bay of Ha Long; where you get to explore small hidden coves and impressive caves with glittering stalactites. Continuing on your next stop is the old imperial capital of Hue, where you will sail down the picturesque Perfume River, visit the Forbidden Purple Citadel and the Thien Mu Pagoda, as well as getting to sample the refined and unique Hue cuisine.

The last leg of your adventure takes you on a drive along one of Vietnam’s most scenic highways to the picturesque 16th century harbour of Hoi An, where you spend a couple of nights before a flight to Siem Reap in Cambodia. Once here you have plenty of time to get under the skin of the incredible Angkor Wat temple complex, the Lara Croft Ta Prohm temple as well as Angkor Thom and other important sites, such as the Terrace of the Leper King, the Terrace of Elephants and the Bayon Temple. On your journey through this region you will leave no stone unturned, meaning you will return home with an array of incredible memories.
