Inside Vietnam: Cambodia Laos

Small Group Tour IVT Classic

Vietnam and Cambodia Uncovered

13 Nights: from US$3368 Trip Code: VCU0001

Our 14-day exploration of Vietnam and Cambodia picks out the highlights of these two contrasting but equally fascinating and beautiful destinations, tracing the common bonds that link them together to form such a remarkable pair. Read more >

Commencing in the great northern capital of Hanoi, the tour journeys south, seeing history unfurl through the imperial and colonial eras before touching on the dark days of more recent history. We conclude at the heart of one of history's most remarkable civilisations, the Khmer Empire, which left the incredible temples of Angkor as its legacy.

For those who like to understand history in context, this is a tour that will not disappoint. From the great Imperial Citadel and grand tombs of the Nguyen Emperors in Hue to the ancient port of Hoi An, once amongst the largest in Asia, you will explore all aspects of the rich cultures you encounter along the way. Some of our tour departures are timed to coincide with the Hoi An Lantern Festival, during which the town closes its streets to traffic, switches off all electric lights and recreates the atmosphere of yesteryear.

Modern Vietnamese history bookends the first part of the tour, commencing in Hanoi at the immense Stalinist mausoleum of Ho Chi Minh and finishing in the city that was renamed in his memory at the end of the Vietnam War. Still known as Saigon to the locals, Ho Chi Minh City was the final place to fall to the North Vietnamese in 1975, and the many sites of interest in and around the city provide a fascinating and often unfamiliar perspective on this infamous period.

Much of modern southern Vietnam was once part of the great Khmer empire, and a short flight brings to the heart of what was, nearly a millennium ago, one of the greatest cities in the world. We have three days to combine exploration of the remarkable jungle-clad temples of Angkor with relaxation at our resort accommodation in laid-back Siem Reap, before a final night in Cambodia's capital Phnom Penh brings the tour to its conclusion.
