An Indo-chine Adventure: Vietnam and Cambodia
16–26 February 2019 (10 nights / 11 days)

(Siem Reap – HCMC – Hội An – Hanoi – Ha Long Bay)

 

Join us for 11 days of a complete sensory overload!

Start with Cambodia. Catch an awe-inspiring sunrise over the world’s largest religious structure, Angkor Wat, explore the temples of Bayon and Banteay Srei, cycle around the paddy fields in the early evening, and dance the night away on Pub Street.

Siem Reap is a small, lovely vibrant town.

From here head to Vietnam. Vietnam is not what you saw in B-grade American war movies, but it is a nation that has bounced back from the ravages of war and dogmatic communism, and is as full of beauty as it is of hope.

Feel your senses come alive as you take in HCMC – a mad and chaotic whirl, a high-octane city of commerce and culture that has driven the whole country forward with its pulsating energy, or when you sail between the jaw-dropping limestone pillars that rise out of the impossibly blue Ha Long Bay.

Get transported to another era while walking the streets of the historic port town of Hội An, and take in Hanoi’s curious blend of French majesty and Asian chaos.

These 11 days will be completely unforgettable and that’s a promise!

Day2
Day 2 – Sunday, 17th February (includes breakfast and lunch) Siem Reap (full day by Tuk-Tuk)  
  • Breakfast at the hotel.
  • Start early at 5 a.m. to catch the iconic sunrise at Angkor Wat.
  • Visit the magnificent Angkor Wat Temple. Built during the reign of King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century, Angkor Wat was constructed following the model of the temple mountain symbolizing Mount Meru, the home of the gods.
  • Back to the hotel for breakfast.
  • Take a midday break to refuel and escape the sun’s hottest rays. Resume the Siem Reap sightseeing tour with a visit to the temples of Ta Phrom and Bayon.
  • Overgrown with trees and vines, Ta Phrom temple is a perfect example of how nature crept in and reclaimed its land after the fall of the Angkorian empires.
  • This evening attend a performance of ‘Phare, the Cambodian Circus’. Starting at 7 p.m., professional artists of Phare Ponleu Selpak (PPS) will perform an inspiring show suitable for people of all ages. Set up in Battambang in 1994 by young Cambodians returning from the refugee camps, who learnt how to use art as a means to cope with trauma, PPS has played an influential role in promoting and developing Khmer culture over the years after the Khmer Rouge genocide. The hour-long show mixes traditional and modern theatre, music, dance, acrobatics, juggling, and contortion woven around the story of Cambodian life and society. Student performances can still be seen twice weekly in Battambang, but now the circus has arrived in Siem Reap!
  (Please note, we may do this today or the next day.)     Overnight at Steung Siem Reap or similar
