Inside Vietnam: Cambodia Laos

Small Group Tour IVT Classic

Indochina Encompassed

15 Nights: from US$3368 Trip Code: IE0001

One of the great pleasures of a tour that combines all three of the Indochina nations is the remarkable contrasts of culture, cuisine, scenery and atmosphere that reveal themselves as your journey progresses. Read more >

The histories of Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos have intertwined over many centuries, yet despite this shared history each nation retains a character and identity quite distinct from that of its neighbours. It is this combination of similarity and cultural difference that makes Indochina Encompassed such an unforgettable tour.

We commence our journey in the Pearl of the Orient, Phnom Penh, travelling clockwise through the region as we explore the awe-inspiring UNESCO World Heritage Site of Angkor before flying on to Luang Prabang in Laos. After experiencing the unique atmosphere of the town and discovering some of the minority cultures and beautiful scenery of northern Laos, we continue to Vietnam's capital, Hanoi, an exciting and energising contrast to the laid-back pace of life in Laos and Cambodia.

After Hanoi, an overnight cruise on the celebrated waters of Halong Bay will feel a world away from the bustle of the city streets. From here we move on to the ancient port of Hoi An, which once welcomed traders and absorbed influences from across the globe. Some of our Indochina Encompassed itineraries are timed to coincide with the Hoi An Lantern Festival, so depending on when you travel you may have the chance to join in the festivities and generally enjoy the old-fashioned atmosphere as the town switches off its electric lights, closes its streets to traffic and returns to yesteryear.

Our final destination is the economic powerhouse of modern Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City. Still known as Saigon to the locals, the city retains a wealth of colonial charm and brims with energy and optimism; the perfect conclusion to your journey through Indochina.
