Vietnam & Cambodia Uncovered

21 days from £1,899

Temples, rice paddies, beaches, and beyond

Exotic, diverse, and brimming with natural beauty, Vietnam and Cambodia are the essence of Southeast Asia. This group trip takes you to the highlights of both countries over 21 dreamy days. Weave your way through rickshaws and fragrant pho stalls on Hanoi’s chaotic streets, step back in time in rural Ninh Binh, where conical hatted farmers work the lush rice fields with water buffalo, cruise the jewel-like waters of Ha Long Bay on an Indochinese junk boat, relax on snow-white beaches on the idyllic island of Koh Rong Samloem, and walk in the footsteps of the Khmer dynasty in the jaw-dropping Angkor Wat complex. Amazing doesn’t even cover it.


Highlights include

Angkor Wat
Ha Long Bay cruise
Mekong homestay
Paradise snorkel cruise
Ninh Binh bike tour
Floating villages
Cooking class
Kayaking excursion
S21 & Killing Fields
Kampot sunset cruise

Extra information

Arrive in Hanoi Noi Bai International Airport (HAN), Vietnam, on day 1 of your tour, where a member of the local team will meet you and transfer you to our accommodation in the centre of the city. There are no activities planned today so arrive at a time that suits you.

The trip ends on day 21 in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Return airport transfers are not included so you’ll need to make your own way to the airport. Siem Reap International Airport (REP) is a short taxi ride from the city centre (around 20 minutes depending on traffic) and can be easily arranged. Your tour guide can help with this.

Group sizes range from 4 – 22. Travelling as a group is a great way to meet like-minded people and to share an amazing adventure.

This trip is designed for those aged 18-39. There are some light activities included, from kayaking and snorkelling to walking tours, so you’ll need a moderate level of fitness.

We require a copy of the passport you will be travelling on to be emailed to our operations team in order to confirmation your booking.
