Vietnam & Cambodia

A journey to Asia is…
 
…captivating, cultural and truly unforgettable. Embark on the ultimate Asian adventure, taking in the countries’ awe-inspiring landscapes as you go. From cascading rice paddies and lofty limestone cliffs, to centuries-old temples and motorcycle mayhem, there aren’t many places in the world more endearing than Asia. Feel immediately welcomed by the friendly grins and gentle bows of the locals, from the conical hat-wearing vendors at the floating markets to the intrigued passersby in the streets, greeting you with a friendly “hello” am War at Ho Chi Minh’s Cu Chi Tunnels and War Remnants Museum and admire the French-colonial architecture of Hanoi.

Things to know

  • A twice daily train travels through the narrow and aptly-named ‘Train Street’ in Hanoi, passing just inches from the homes of a local neighbourhood
  • When you aren’t travelling by rail or foot, you can get to nearly anywhere in Cambodia by tuk tuk. The popular way to travel is speedy – if a little bumpy – and prices should always be negotiated before setting off
  • The distance from Ho Chi Minh to Hanoi is around 1,700km and can be travelled by rail, road or sky
