Days 3-4 Halong Bay

Set sail for real Vietnamese adventure on beautiful Halong Bay. Thousands of limestone peaks dot the turquoise water of the bay and there's plenty of time to explore the islands and their mysterious stalactite-encrusted caves. A night aboard a boat in Halong Bay is a very special experience - fall asleep beneath Vietnam's sparkling sky to the gentle lapping of waves against the hull.

Days 12-15 Siem Riep/Angkor Wat

Another short flight (approx 1 hour) takes you to your final destination of Siem Reap. This town is the gateway to Angkor Wat. Explore the temples with a guide and learn the history from the Khmer Empire long ago in the 9th - 12th centuries. The temples were meant to represent the cosmic world and as such are perfectly aligned in balance and symmetry. Sunrise or sunset visits will give you spectacular photographic opportunities. You have a 3 day pass into the temple complex, so there is plenty of time to explore the site, as well as a chance to visit local markets and try some delicous street food or let the kids take a refreshing dip in the hotel pool.
