Witness the essentials of Southeast Asia on this 17-day tour through Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand. This section of the world has been considered mystical, a distant land filled with unparalleled sights, from the landscapes to the people, the food to the temples; a place where life is so different you would never be able to imagine the diversity; however, now there is no need to imagine. Journey into the hills and rivers of Vietnam, into the famed jungles and open cities of Cambodia, and within the shining lights of Bangkok, Thailand to experience sensational Southeast Asia.
Your Vietnam vacation begins with your arrival in Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam. The historic charm blends into the rising modernity of the city where a dedication to the country’s first president blends and mixes with French colonial architecture and remains of empires. Venture to Halong Bay where the landscape is breathtaking, the myths are inspiring, and the rise of karsts adds to an impressive limestone color over the sea. Cruise through the waters before transferring to the old imperial capital of Hue, where the grandeur of the old kingdom continues to glimmer as a pearl in the country’s eyes. In the city of Hoi An you will traverse the streets located along the river where the charm of a diverse merchant city sits beneath the expanse of shining lanterns.
Continue your exploration of Vietnam visiting the modern history of Ho Chi Minh City, where the name Saigon is very much alive, while the history of the city and the rift in the country is memorialized in museums and the labyrinthine Vietcong tunnels that maze through the landscape outside. Float along the famous Mekong Delta where the countryside of Vietnam truly comes to life, the patty-fields and temples, farmers and lushness burst forth as if once hidden.
You will transfer to Cambodia’s capital of Phnom Penh where the grandeur of the modern city has blossomed from a colonial past and tempestuous modern history. Traversing the city is a mixture of present luxury and contemporary pains, such as S-21, where the locals learn from their past in order to not repeat it, giving themselves the promise of a hopeful future. In the jungles outside of Siem Reap are the famed and remarkable ruins of Angkor Wat. Enjoy the days where you can discover the forgotten city, layered in stones and overrun with foliage offering a large contrast to the eccentricities of Bangkok. The sometimes overwhelming modernity of Bangkok hides the lovely niches of the city’s past, where amongst the bustle of the streets, you can stroll beneath the banyan trees, listening to the quiet wave of leaves, and see the golden temple spires close-up. You will depart from Thailand and venture home knowing full well that the essentials of Southeast Asia have been experienced and thoroughly relished.
