Indochina Adventure SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Hanoi is famous for its tranquil lake settings, French-colonial architecture, ancient temples, delectable cuisine and as the resting place of the revered former leader, Ho Chi Minh.
Vinh’s claim to fame is that it is the birthplace of Ho Chi Minh. It is a lively port city with the mountains of Laos looming in the background.
As the most relaxed capital in South-East Asia, Vientiane is a lovely mix of riverside calm, outstanding temples, fabulous food and charming locals.
Surrounded by stunning limestone karst scenery, Vang Vieng is a small haven with fascinating caves to explore, a myriad of water-based activities and a relaxed atmosphere.
Nestled in the hills of northern Laos, the tranquil city of Luang Prabang is studded with ornate temples, brimming with colourful markets and enriched by French colonial architecture.
The Mekong River gently flows through Laos providing food, water and a transport channel for millions, as well as the aesthetic pleasures of life on the river.
Sitting on the Mekong, Chiang Khong is a quiet town on the Thai side of the Thai-Lao border with beautiful countryside and a relaxed atmosphere.
Awash with stunning temples, fabulous markets and a lively city centre, charming Chiang Mai is rich in culture and the gateway to the northern hilltribes.
Meet the hilltribes of Northern Thailand while walking through lush, verdant jungle, enjoying the hospitality, cuisine and friendliness of the people who call this area of Thailand home.
Chiang Mai means 'new city', even though it was founded in 1296! It's a favourite among travellers due to its relaxed feel and cultural richness.
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.
