Detailed Description

Thailand and Vietnam have always been able to excite and amaze visitors, as these exotic countries are where you can find elephants in the jungle, ride tuk-tuks to temples, and explore cities so different from wherever you call home. Sizzling smells flutter down the backstreets, gongs and bells enliven the air, and there is so much color you will rarely know where to look. Exploring these two countries is a cultural dislocation, like an insight into an alien world. This family vacation is a tour to excite curious young minds and enjoy amazing adventures together.

Spread across five iconic destinations, this two-week tour combines a little of all that makes Thailand and Vietnam unique. There is Bangkok, a city of dizzying first impressions, and then a jungle retreat in the Golden Triangle, where your neighbors are elephants and tranquility reigns. Chiang Mai then provides a quiet cultural immersion and is a great place to explore locally at your own pace. These three Thailand stops fill the week, and your days are filled by a number of new experiences: Thai cooking, a monk’s blessing, the White Temple, cycling Ayutthaya and a floating market. But while the itinerary runs at a fast pace, Thailand will energize your family continually with each new experience something to look forward to and look back on.

Flying onwards to Hanoi and there is the option to go on a short city tour, before a drive to the coast and a traditional junk, a wooden boat to take you around Halong Bay, recently voted in as one of the new world seven wonders. Spend a couple of days here of discovering caves, walking on uninhabited islands, and waking up amid a glorious ocean landscape. From here, you will complete your vacation in Saigon, or Ho Chi Minh City as it is now known, a city of rich history and heritage, along with all the old war tales of course. Take a boat on the Mekong Delta, discover local food markets, feel the city’s energy and embrace its color. Much like Bangkok and Chiang Mai, every moment can create cultural immersion, yet there is enough comfort to match the exoticism.
