Itinerary

Explore the enchanting city of Luang Prabang, at the junction of the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers.
Take the opportunity to go kayaking or river-tubing in Vang Vieng, or hire a mountain bike and set off to explore nearby caves and swimming holes.
Travel to Laos's laidback capital, Vientiane, where French and Asian cultures collide. Explore the city from the back of a tuk-tuk, sip coffee in a cafe or slurp a bowl of steaming pho soup.
Say goodbye to Laos and travel across the Friendship Bridge into Thailand. Discover a remote region, well off the tourist trail, that offers unique insights into rural life.
Stop by the Khmer temple complex of Phi Mai. Travel onwards through rice fields and small communities with proud cultural heritages to a busy border town.
The riverside city of Siem Reap is the gateway to the magical Angkor Wat temples. Join a local guide to explore these impressive ruins and uncover the fascinating folklore that surrounds their history.
Make tracks to Phnom Penh. Find graphic reminders of Cambodia's tragic history in the bone-chilling Tuol Sleng Museum and Choeung Ek.
In Battambang, crumbling French-colonial shopfronts along the river add elegance to the town. Visit the hillside site of Phnom Sampeau and admire its pagodas and cave shrines.
Return to Thailand, stopping to spend another night in Aranyaprathet.
Step into the chaos of Bangkok's busy streets. Get lost in the maze of markets, visit gilded temples or take time-out for a well-earned massage in the exuberant Thai capital.
