The trip was wonderful! This was my first time in Vietnam and Cambodia, and I would love to come back again as it was way too short a time. The accommodations were great (nice hotels in central locations), and our guides were exceptional. We learned so much from them. Our itinerary was a nice mix of city sights and rural scenes, along with an overnight cruise on Halong Bay, boat trips on the Mekong River and Tonle Sap, bicycle rides along narrow village lanes, culinary lessons, museum tours, temple visits, shopping, and lots of delicious food!
I was very pleased with the responsiveness and flexibility of my tour consultant at this travel company in Vietnam. She put together a very interesting itinerary with several options to choose from. The trip was originally planned for two people, but another daughter wanted to join us a month before the trip, and the company was able to quickly make the changes to accommodate one more person.
The highlights of the trip were the cruise on Halong Bay, the evening Vespa tour in Ho Chi Minh City, and of course, the magnificent Angkor temples in Siem Reap. The Vespa tour was so much fun, and we loved our guide who was very informative and so articulate. We would definitely recommend the Vespa tour, especially for the younger generation. My daughters loved their cabin on the junk, being able to lie in bed or sit on the balcony and watch the beautiful karst landscape of Halong Bay go by. And finally, visiting the ancient ruins of Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, and Ta Prohm was a dream come true. Even though I am now back in the US, my nightly dreams are still filled with the beautiful images of Vietnam and Cambodia!
I would increase the number of days spent in each place. Our nine-day trip was way too short. The only disappointment was the hours spent at Hanoi airport waiting for our flight to Ho Chi Minh City. We were picked up from the junk at 11:00 a.m. and dropped off at the airport way too early. It would have been nice to have been booked on an earlier flight to Ho Chi Minh City, so that we could have arrived earlier in the day and would have had time to explore or shop. Instead, we spent several hours at the airport and arrived in Ho Chi Minh City after 9:00 p.m., too late to do much of anything.
