Description of Vietnam, Cambodia & Thailand overland tour

This classic Southeast Asia tour takes in three of the region's most endearing countries, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand, to leave travellers in awe of what an overland tour has to offer. Indochina tours overland appeal to the adventure travellers in all of us with hectic Hanoi in Vietnam providing the perfect place to get the wheels rolling before heading to the beautiful setting of Halong Bay.

As the journey continues south, travellers will encounter Hue, Hoi An and Nha Trang en-route to Ho Chi Minh City, with a superb selection of beaches and historical sites to enjoy along the way.

Next this Southeast Asia tour takes to the Mekong and crosses the border into Cambodia in order to reflect on experiences and prepare for the all too raw emotions of Phnom Penh and the surreal surroundings of one of the world's most recognisable ruined citadels, Angkor Wat.

As with any well-designed Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand overland tour, the end game in Bangkok promises a well-deserved chance to explore and soak up the ambience before finally your three weeks will come to a close as you head for home with much more than just souvenirs.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Zipline in Cambodia. Above the trees, away from the crazy crowds at Angkor Wat.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Don't book it. Not much adventure. Cambodia I would skip entirely. Felt like we were hamsters on the Intrepid wheel. So many groups everywhere we went. Same hotels, same restaurants, same activities.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Benefitted locals to some degree. But the other 2 ... not so much. Taking care of the environment in these countries is not a priority for them. We contributed to the impact especially at Halong Bay.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Probably a low 4. It was a good learning experience for me for my own future solo travels. I needed the group thing at first, but then the schedule just became a bit of a pain. And the first part of my trip the group was 6
70+ yr old, and 6 younger 20s to early 50s. So bit of a split from the start.

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

As a global operator, we take our role in the tourism industry very seriously. We recognise the impact that tourism has on local communities and the environment, and we plan and operate all our tours with this front of our minds. We believe that every tour operator must be responsible in the way they conduct their business, to ensure the welfare of all people and the conservation of the environment.

We are committed to operating in a responsible manner, incorporating the principles of sustainable development in the way we provide our travellers with real life experiences. These values are more than just words on a page; they are ingrained in our culture and the daily operations of every office and every trip. In addition, we expect our staff and travellers to demonstrate the principles of responsible travel - respecting people, cultures and local environments; in the distribution of wealth; in good will and cross-cultural sharing; and in contributing to sustainable development.

As company our responsibilities donít stop when our tours end. Our own in house foundation has been in operation for over 10 years; a not-for-profit fund that has distributed over AU$3 million to more than 70 non-government organisations since 2002, from health care, education, human rights, child welfare, sustainable development and in environmental and wildlife protection. Donations come from our travellers and are then matched by us dollar for dollar.

People

We believe that responsible travel is about the attitude you take with you and the choices you make when travelling - to respect and benefit local people, their cultures, economy and the environment. On trips like this through Asia for example, dress standards are conservative, and we recommend loose, lightweight clothing so as not to offend, particularly outside of the major cities.

We take care to use local transport throughout, and stay in small, locally owned hotels and guesthouses. We source produce locally throughout the trip, eat at local restaurants and encourage our travellers to purchase souvenirs from local artisans and recruit our on the ground team from the local community. This not only gives a fantastic insight into the country and a snap shot of day to day life, but it also puts valuable financial resources back into the local economy, creating jobs and supporting local businesses.

The ruins of Angkor are protected under UNESCO World Heritage listing and as such, part of the money received from entrance tickets contributes to the amazing siteís conservation. Your local guide will also give you plenty of guidance on what is appropriate when visiting the ruins and you will have the chance to interact with many of the local kids.

Travelers will have the option of visiting the land mine museum in Siem Reap and any donations are gratefully accepted. At the end of our journey, travelers may donate any unwanted clothing, medicines and bandages, which are distributed to appropriate local charities.
