Itinerary

Bursting with colour and life, Bangkok is a modern city with an ancient heart. Take it all in from a longtail boat while cruising along the khlongs. Afterwards, visit the world's largest reclining Buddha at Wat Pho.
Enjoy a guided tour of Laos's laidback capital Vientiane. Marvel at the tapered golden stupa of Pha That Luang before visiting COPE, an Intrepid Travel-supported organisation providing essential services to people living with disabilities.
Cool off in the divine Kuang Si Falls near lush Luang Prabang. Lao culture is at its best in this World Heritage-listed haven that remains one of the premier places to visit in Laos. Take a river tour to the revered Pak Ou Caves, filled with hundreds of images of Buddha.
See a traditional water puppet performance, pay respects to the father of modern Vietnam at the Ho Chi Minh mausoleum and stroll through the old heart of Hanoi. To do the city justice, it's worth jumping aboard a cyclo and joining the throng of traffic!
Cruise serene Halong Bay on a junk boat tour, passing the towering limestone karsts.
From French-colonial buildings and graceful boulevards to ancient customs, Hanoi has an elegant timelessness. See it on a stroll around the city or taste the East-West blend at a restaurant before taking an overnight train to Hue.
Discover an imperial past while wandering the great walled citadel in Hue and the Nguyen emperors' tombs and the stately Thien Mu Pagoda. Cruise along the peaceful Perfume River.
Travel past iridescent rice paddies and peaceful fishing villages en route to ancient Hoi An, famed for traditional architecture and talented artists and tailors.
Experience the buzz of Vietnam's economic hub on a slow-moving cyclo tour. Ho Chi Minh City is bursting with attractions including the historic Ben Thanh Market, as well as lots of colourful places to eat.
Marvel at the impressive Cu Chi Tunnels before heading from Vietnam to Cambodia. Once in Phnom Penh, learn about the nation's heartbreaking past on a visit to the Killing Fields.
Believed to represent the cosmic world, the temples of Angkor boast extraordinary architectural design and exquisite carved ornamentation. Explore Angkor Wat and learn mysteries of the region from a local guide. Visit Siem Reap's spritely market and restaurant precinct to cap off this classic Indochina tour.
