In the past few years Vietnam has opened its doors to the world and much has changed. Today, in one of the world’s last communist countries, the motorcycles and western dress of the industrious youth happily co-exist with orange-clad Buddhist monks and political posters from a different era. Hanoi and Saigon still retain a French flavour in their pavement cafes, architecture and wide tree-lined boulevards. We also visit the limestone archipelago of Halong Bay, the ancient royal capital of Hue and a full-day guided visit to the fascinating Mekong Delta.
In Cambodia our tour includes a stay in the capital, Phnom Penh, with its vibrant riverside ambience it’s one of the ‘hidden gems’ of Asian cities. A short flight away is the town of Siem Reap, gateway to the incredible complex of temples within the ancient city of Angkor. At its height in the thirteenth century, Angkor had a staggering million inhabitants and was the capital of the fabulously wealthy Khmer Empire. The incredible state of preservation and artistry of its sculptures have, for many, made Angkor one of the great wonders of the world.
