Inside Asia Tours: Vietnam, Cambodia & Laos

Small Group Tour IAT Classic

Indochina Encompassed

15 Nights: from US$3627 Trip Code: VIE

Explore remarkable contrasts on this tour, from country to country, old to new and rural to modern. This tour encompasses the highlights of Indochina with a twist or two! Read more >

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.

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 Siem Reap, the gateway to the awe-inspiring UNESCO World Heritage Site of Angkor, before travelling clockwise through the region as we explore the spiritual capital of Laos, Luang Prabang. After experiencing the unique atmosphere of the town and discovering some of the minority cultures and beautiful scenery in Nong Khiaw in 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.

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.
