Indochina Traverse

This remarkable journey through Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia will appeal to the discerning traveller keen to appreciate the 'great sites', whilst also experiencing the underlying cultural fabric of this fascinating part of Southeast Asia. We begin in World Heritage listed Luang Prabang, and journey up the Mekong River to the Pak Ou Caves and the exquisite Kamu Lodge retreat. Our overland journey meanders through the remote and spectacular mountains of Northern Laos into Vietnam. After a night in the beautiful valley of Mai Chau with its many ethnic minority villages we continue to the teeming markets of Hanoi before relaxing amongst the 3000 stunning limestone islets onboard a luxury traditional cruise boat in Halong Bay. In Hoi An, we savour the rich history of this former trading port before heading to Ho Chi Minh City and the vast Mekong Delta with its unique floating markets and trading villages. A fitting conclusion to this remarkable journey is the time spent in Phnom Penh and the archaeological wonders of Angkor Wat.
