Detailed Description

You don’t have to be an anthropologist or archeologist to venture out into the wonders of Southeast Asia and to witness its sensational diversity. On this 14-day trip to Cambodia and Vietnam, you will explore the tremendous histories that date back millennia, from Angkor Wat to the Old Quarter of Hanoi. You can experience the traditional markets of ethnic hill tribes whose clothing echoes color and unique styling. Whether cruising through the Mekong Delta witnessing the rice paddy fields of the countryside or wandering through the Museum of Ethnology for an introduction to the variety of cultures within the remarkable landscapes of Vietnam, you can relish the journey of discovery every step of the way.

Your venture begins with your arrival in Siem Reap, Cambodia, the gateway to Angkor. The city is both sleepy and energetic along the banks of the Siem Reap River. The following day your guide will meet you and take you out into the famous temple complex of Angkor to witness the expansive ancient city. At Banteay Srei you will find temples with delicate and intricate features before visiting Tonle Sap, an ancient lake where floating villages have made their home for as long as anyone can remember. Venture south on the fourth day to arrive at Phnom Penh where the French Colonial lined streets give elegance to a city with a fractured contemporary history of the Khmer Rouge. For two days you will experience both the tragedy and beauty of the city emblazoned on the smiles of the people who have helped bring the streets back to vivacity. Leaving Phnom Penh will take you along the Mekong River, cruising over the border to Vietnam and arriving in Chau Doc.

An early exploration of Chau Doc will then find you transferring to Ho Chi Minh City, also known as Saigon. The commercial capital is filled with non-stop energy, from its colonial architecture to the celebrated Jade Emperor Pagoda. Outside of the city you will find the winding labyrinth of the Cu Chi Tunnels and the unique temple of the Cao Dai Holy See. Once in Hanoi you will find a city with roots dating as far back as the 11th century. The calm collection of modern and ancient bring a soothing atmosphere around the bustling colonial buildings. A night train will bring you to Sapa where you will spend two days within the cultural markets and stunning mountain landscapes. The hill tribes have embraced the lush foothills and you can see terraced paddy fields decorating the slopes. Another night train will bring you back to Hanoi where you will catch your flight and return home.
