Detailed Description

Off the beaten path of the city streets you will find the grandeur of the jungle and the blossoming limestone that stretches out of the emerald water. On this 12-day trip to Vietnam and Laos you will do more than visit Southeast Asia; you will experience it, from its vibrant culture and its unparalleled landscape set within the mountains that the French once used as resort homes, to the parading orange-robed monks that ask for alms each morning within the old Imperial Capital of Laos. From hidden caves to illustrious waterfalls you will discover the breathtaking beauty of Southeast Asia in its natural landscape and persistent culture.

Your journey begins with your arrival in Ho Chi Minh City. What was once the capital of South Vietnam is now the capital of Vietnamese commerce, bringing in the modern world on the banks of the Saigon River. Touring through the city brings you the contemporary history that remains a strong part of the collective neighborhoods’, and its people’s, identity. Venture through the city of Da Lat into the mountainside to spend two days within the stunning forestry that reaches along the undulating peaks, allowing the hill tribes to cultivate lavish crops, from coffee to artichoke, and even sensational flowers. Once in Hanoi you will find a city that has been able to balance the energy of modern Vietnam with the soothing environment of culture, tradition, and nature.

Spend the following two days cruising in luxury on the emerald waters of Ha Long Bay known for the exquisite limestone islands and towering karsts. When you return to land you will indulge in the tranquil highlights of Hanoi once more before making your way to Vientiane, the capital of Laos. The serene streets of the capital bring almost a different world, combining French Colonial influence with a strong connection to history and tradition. From Vientiane you will make your way to Luang Prabang, one of the most sensational and popular cities in the country, famous for its old imperial relics, tremendous forestry, and breathtaking landscape. Experience the monks’ morning procession before venturing to the Pak Ou Caves, dug deep within the limestone cliffs. You will return to Vientiane before your trip home, allowing you to take in the charisma of the capital streets once more.
