Description of Indochina tours
Start this epic 30 day Indochina tour as you mean to go on as you get orientated on the frenetic streets and glittering temples of Bangkok before heading north by train to the more peaceful ambience of the walled city of Chiang Mai.
A river cruise along the Mekong takes your Indochina tour over the border from Thailand and into Laos where firstly Luang Prabang in the north and then Vientiane, in southern Laos, provide an introduction into one of Indochina’s most endearing countries.
An efficient flight over the border into Vietnam finds you half way through your holiday with Halong Bay, Hanoi, Hue and Hoi An all to be experienced prior to an internal flight to Ho Chi Minh City, in southern Vietnam.
The final country on this fascinating Indochina tour is Cambodia where Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Angkor Wat await prior to heading back to the start of your tour, 30 days later, in the bright lights of Bangkok.

Reviewed on 06 Feb 2013 by Sarah Beddowwas one of the best trips I have ever done. We experienced all kinds of travel, visited many amazing sites and learned more in one month than most people do in a lifetime. The most memorable part was the homestay where we experienced what life really is for the locals who were so welcoming and friendly to us. Read full review
PlanetThis trip allows for plenty of time to explore the culture of two very fascinating yet different countries. Travellers are encouraged to explore with the group and on their own, learn a few words of the language and interact with the locals as much as possible.
Our slow boat down the Mekong minimizes energy consumption and assists local families making their living on the river. Our small groups keep the impacts to a mimimum while we gently float down the river taking in the spectacular scenery.
In Cambodia we have a chance to visit a Wildlife Conservation and Environmental Education Centre where confiscated animals from the illegal wildlife trade are nursed back to health and kept safe from poachers. A changing exhibition gives visitors an insight into local and global environmental problems and possible solutions.
PeopleBy shopping locally we interact with local craft and trades people and make a positive contribution to the economy. In Luang Prabang we have the opportunity to join local weavers to learn their craft, or learn how to dye your own silk scarf. Individual cooking tuition will create an insight into the Laotian cuisine.
We always stay in small scale locally owned accommodation and in Laos we spend a night as guests in the homes of local villagers which provides an economic returns to local communities we visit.
