Vietnam and Cambodia are beautiful countries, each in their own distinctive way. They perfectly complement each other, making this a fantastic tour combination. Between landscapes seemingly untouched by man, to the bustling cities, from the beautiful beaches, to the ancient architect of the famous Angkor Temples, there is something for everyone. Your journey begins in Vietnam in the fast growing Ho Chi Minh City, still called Saigon by most Vietnamese. Spend a day exploring the mighty Mekong River with its floating markets. Then head north and discover the coastal cities of Hoi An and Hue as well as some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Finally, you will come to the capital city of Hanoi with its French architecture and the Old Quarters to see and explore. Spend a magical day exploring HaLong Bay, often called the eighth wonder of the world, before continuing on to Cambodia. In Cambodia you will explore the famous Angkor Temples and the “floating village” on Tonle Sap Lake.
