What's included in this trip
Explore Indochina SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Arrive early to explore the chaotic capital of Vietnam. Hanoi is an alluring city of contrasts, best discovered on foot. Walk along Hanoi's pagoda-studded lake and perhaps visit some of its rich cultural sights.
As the former imperial capital of Vietnam, Hue holds the treasures of Vietnam's royal past and is a curious mix of bustling streets and tranquil settings.
With lantern-lit streets, vibrant markets, skilled tailors, artisan shops, ancient houses, colourful temples and beautiful smiles, Hoi An is a Vietnamese wonderland.
Time for some well-deserved rest and relaxation in the beautiful coastal town of Nha Trang. Grab a snorkel and head out to sea in search of crabs, seahorses and the rare zebra moray eel. Otherwise spend the day on land, worshipping the sun, eating fresh seafood and resting up before another ride on the Reunification Express, headed for Ho Chi Minh.
With countless food stalls, restaurants, museums and markets, the busy streets of Ho Chi Minh City have something for everyone to enjoy.
Phnom Penh celebrates life with optimism and colour, and there are a wealth of riverside eateries, bustling markets and historic sites - both tragic and inspiring - to discover.
Sitting close to the greenery and beauty of the Kirirom National Park, Chambok provides serenity, an abundance of nature and a taste of traditional Khmer life.
Sihanoukville - or Kompong Som to locals - is a small port town with long stretches of beach and beautiful, sleepy islands just off the coast.
Sitting on the confluence of the Mekong and Tonle Sap rivers, Phnom Penh is buzzing with modern life, while still retaining some of its French Colonial heritage.
Situated on the mighty Mekong, Kompong Cham retains the charm of traditional Cambodia. Sit back and relax into its peaceful nature, French flavour and Khmer heritage.
A vibrant nightlife, mouth-watering food, a time-worn French feel and certain famous temples on its doorstep - Siem Reap is a little town with a big, pulsating heart. Immense, awe-inspiring, extraordinary - the Angkor Wat temples are all this and much more. Built in the 12th century, this former Khmer city is nothing short of spectacular.
Loud, bright, chaotic and delightful, Bangkok is a city of modern excesses intermingled with simple traditions, all wrapped up in the famous smiles of the locals.

Explore Indochina, December 2012
I have travelled with intrepid through africa and egypt and it did not let let me down once again! I was so excited to be travelling with intrepid again! I had two tour guides, Thao (through veitnam) and Sam (through cambodia) they were both exceptional! Sam has only just started working with intrepid and he is still on probation. and he was hands down the best group leader i have eer come across. he got only with everyone on my tour and he was so funny. I pleased everybody!
