Detailed Description

Your discovery of the imperial cities of Southeast Asia begins with your arrival in the modern capital of Vietnam, Hanoi. The city is charismatic with its mixture of high-rises which connote contemporaneousness while its tree-fringed lake brings a sense of calm and tradition to the stretch of energetic neighborhoods.

The following day you will indulge in a day trip to Ha Long Bay where the limestone islands create a unique and wondrous landscape along the South China Sea. 

Transfer to Hue where the imperial past of Vietnam is situated within the Old City. Travel along the Perfume River before visiting the tombs of past emperors, each constructing lavish architecture and artistry to commemorate their rule. Once in Ho Chi Minh City you will witness the commercial center of Vietnam. The streets are filled with an effortless buzz along the Saigon River. You find the range of history within the Reunification Palace and outside of the city at the Cu Chi Tunnels. 

Once in Siem Reap, Cambodia you will spend two days traversing the celebrated temples of the Angkor complex, from Ta Prohm to Angkor Wat itself, each temple showcasing the history, grandeur, and dedication of the Khmer empire. Arrive in Bangkok, Thailand, a city known for its endless energy and where you can find the country’s rich history located at the heart of the Chao Phraya River.
