Tour Overview

Vietnam’s capital city, Hanoi was founded in 1010 and became the capital of Vietnam in 1954. Hanoi is a city of contrasts, with ancient buildings dating from the 11th century around the corner from modern high rise buildings. Shrines to Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam’s first president, are proudly displayed and the Ancient Quarter has streets that are still named after the goods that were traded there – Silk Street, Gold Street, even Fried Fish Street! Enjoy a morning outside the city to visit some of Vietnam’s most colourful and revered temples.

A peaceful town in the north of the Kingdom of Cambodia, Siem Reap, is a relaxing base from which to explore the ruins of Angkor. One of the most important archaeological sites in South-East Asia, Angkor contains the magnificent remains of different capitals of the Khmer Empire, from the 9th to the 15th centuries. The spectacular Angkor Wat, believed to be the largest religious building in the world, boasts a volume of stone equaling that of the Cheops Pyramid in Egypt. For a change of pace, you’ll experience an innovative but challenging way of life as you cruise through a floating village on South East Asia’s largest fresh water lake, Tonle Sap.

Bangkok, “the City of Angels” is home to around 10 million people. From modern hotels, office buildings and shopping malls to centuries old temples and palaces, Bangkok is a dazzling, vibrant metropolis. The Grand Palace, home to Thailand’s king and the administrative seat of government for 150 years, awes visitors with its intricate façade. Bangkok’s main waterway, the Chao Phraya River, is the main transportation artery for this vibrant city. An excursion by boat offer visitors a chance to experience another side of this multi-faceted capital. Add in world class shopping and dining options and visitors will be hesitant to leave this “Venice of the East.”

Referred to as the “Pearl of the Andaman Sea”, Phuket is Thailand’s most popular island. Start your relaxation in Phuket with a sunset dinner cruise on a traditional Burmese Junk. The following day will provide an opportunity to kayak through the famous limestone formations and tidal caves surrounding this tropical paradise. For the remainder your stay, you are free to comb the beaches at your will or choose to explore more of the area with an island tour, a jungle safari, white water rafting or an elephant trek from one of the local camps.

Siem Reap Optional Excursions;
Institute for Khmer Traditional Textiles Tour
Travel to the 'Wisdom from the Forest' project, 35 kilometers north of Siem Reap. Here, the Institute for Khmer Traditional Textiles (IKTT) focuses on the restoration of the natural environment to produce materials for making traditional textiles. IKTT also cultivates a vegetable garden to feed the 30-40 families working on its 22 hectares of land. Here you will see all the trees that are needed to produce the natural dyes for silk, as well as the Mulberry trees that are vital in the production of silk. You can see silk worms munching on the Mulberry leaves and forming the all-important cocoons. As you wander around the site, you will discover the entire silk process from boiling the cocoons, to pulling out the silk thread, dying the silk and finally weaving it into beautiful designs. At the end of the tour, you can browse through the workshop to see a variety of silk products.

Siem Reap School Tour
Today your guide will pick you up from your hotel and take you to a local village school. During your visit, you will have time to interact with students, teach a short English lesson and learn how the education system in Cambodia works. Due to a lack of resources and minimum government funding for schools in Cambodia, there is a shortage of teaching material and school facilities. Donations of books, study materials and sports equipment are welcomed.

Cooking Class and Visit to Local Home
Khmer cuisine is one of the major national identities that reflect the ways of life, thought and mind of the Cambodian people which are hidden in the taste of consumption of meat dishes and sweet food. Start the day enjoying tea and coffee with the Chef before heading to the Siem Reap morning market (Old Market). The Chef will guide you through the market and introduce you to the Cambodian fruits, vegetables, fish, multi-color spices and herbs that are used in traditional Khmer cooking. After picking up fresh ingredients at the market, you’ll head to the restaurant where refreshing drinks and cold towels are waiting for you. Next, head to the kitchen and begin cooking! You will create a full, three courses Khmer menu, all under professional guidance by skilled Cambodian Chefs. Finally, enjoy the fruits of your labor! Afterward, transfer to a local home to learn more about Cambodian daily life.

Phuket Excursions:
Full Day Phi Phi Island & Bamboo Island Speedboat Tour
Transfer to Boat Lagoon Marina for a cruise to one of the most popular natural attractions in Thailand: the Phi Phi Islands.

Continue on to Phi Phi Don for a simple local buffet lunch and then take a dip in Viking Cave. Afterwards, discover first-hand the magical landscape of Maya Bay, where parts of the movie "The Beach" were filmed.

Drive along the Phuket coastline via Karon Beach and Kata Beach, to the view point where you can see Phuket's three most beautiful beaches from the highlands. Continue on to Promthep Cape for a beautiful photo opportunity, and then visit Rawai Beach and see Wat Chalong, Phuket's revered monastery. Learn about the history of the temple's abbot and proceed to see a cashew nut factory and Wang Thalang Souvenir Shop, a local shop that offers a variety of handmade products. Afterwards, admire the Chino-Portuguese houses at Thalang and Debuk Road.

Hanoi City Highlights

Morning

Morning tour of the Ho Chi Minh Complex with a private guide. Visit Ba Dinh Square, where silent sentries guard the marble and granite mausoleum where Ho Chi Minh lies in state. See the simple cottage where Uncle Ho lived and worked and visit the nearby Ho Chi Minh Museum - an extraordinary tribute to the life of the "father of the country." Carry on to the Governor's Residence, a fine example of Hanoi's French architecture, followed by a stop at the One Pillar Pagoda to hear the legend of its construction.

Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant followed by a private afternoon tour of the Hanoi City highlights. Marvel at the tree lined streets on the way to the Opera House and pass by Hoan Kiem Lake en route to one of the city's fascinating museums of choice: the Museum of History of Vietnamese Military, Vietnam History Museum, or Vietnam Fine Arts Museum. Continue to the Temple of Literature, built in 1070 and dedicated to Confucius, for a quick escape from the busy streets. Afterwards, enjoy a private guided walking tour of the Ancient Quarter, also known as the 36 Streets District, where a nice mix of ancient homes, temples and small shops will be found.

Note: The Ho Chi Minh Museum is closed for maintenance on Mondays and Fridays from September to November annually. less


Pagodas of Hanoi

Take a morning excursion outside of Hanoi to the surrounding countryside with a private guide. Rich in Buddhism, the north of Vietnam is home to the country's most colorful and revered pagodas and temples. The Thay Pagoda (Master's Pagoda) is located 40 kilometers (25 miles) southwest of Hanoi. While a temple is a place to worship the dead, a pagoda is a place to worship the Lord Buddha. Thay Pagoda is widely known for its finely carved lacquer and gold statues of Buddha in his past and present form, as well as the colorful Buddhist ceremonies performed here during auspicious dates of the Lunar calendar.

Only 6 kilometers (4 miles) away lies Tay Phuong Pagoda, situated at the top of a small hillock. Built in 1794, the pagoda is famous for its vast display of finely carved wooden statues of former monks from the 18th Century. Afterwards, return to Hanoi to enjoy the rest of the day at leisure. Lunch is included today. less


Hanoi – Halong Bay

Depart Hanoi in the morning for an approximately 3.5 hour direct drive to Halong Bay. Upon arrival, get on a boat to begin the cruise. While the junk is passing many islets, rocks, caves, floating villages and beaches on Halong Bay, a lunch of fresh seafood will be served on board. Then visit the Thien Cung and Dau Go Caves, the most beautiful among the thousands in the bay. Return to land for a late afternoon hotel check-in and enjoy the evening at leisure.

Note: If staying overnight on a boat is preferred, please contact a travel consultant. This comes highly recommended. less

Visit to Angkor Thom

Enjoy a half day tour of Angkor Thom with a private guide. Visit the sprawling Elephant Terrace, the Terrace of the Leper King and the enchanting Bayon. This 12th century masterpiece lies at the very center of Angkor Thom City and is an archaeological wonder of symmetry and grandeur. The exterior gallery walls have extensive bas-reliefs, but the main features are the towers each with 3 or 4 gently smiling faces, over 200 in total. Afterwards, continue to Pre Rup Temple. Built in 961, the boldness of the architectural design is superb and gives the temple fine balance, scale and proportion. The temple is close in style to the East Mabon, although it was built several years later.

Afterwards, enjoy lunch (not included) and a half day tour of Angkor Wat. It is unlike all the other Khmer temples in that it faces west, and is inspired by 12th Century Hinduism. Its symmetrical towers are stylized on the modern Cambodian flag. Intricate bas-reliefs surround Angkor Wat on four sides, each telling a story, but the most celebrated of these is the Churning of the Sea Milk, located on the east wing. The guide will explain the fascinating mystical tale behind it. less


Exploring Banteay Srei & Preah Khan

This morning, visit Banteay Srei, "The Women's Citadel", a tiny, enchanting temple, which is one of the jewels in this remarkable city. Built of red sandstone in the 10th century and dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva, this is the most Indian of all the temples in Angkor and in the words of H.W. Ponder, "a fairy palace in the heart of an immense and mysterious forest." Continue to Banteay Samre, another Hindu temple.

This afternoon, enjoy lunch and transfer by Tuk Tuk to Preah Khan. This extensive monastic complex, which covers over 130 acres, was built by the Khmer King Jayavarman VII as a monastery and teaching complex. Continue to Ta Prohm, a temple that has been left largely in its natural state since its re-discovery by the French. Surrounded by jungle, it remains a labyrinth of stone hallways that have become overgrown with roots and limbs of massive banyan trees, which envelope the stone like tentacles. less


Hiking the Valley of a Thousand Lingas & journey to Tonle Sap

Commonly

Commonly known as the Valley of a Thousand Lingas, Kbal Spean is set deep in the jungle, northeast of Angkor. Hike through the jungle to reach the River of a Thousand Lingas. Historically, the ancient civilization of Angkor used this waterway for irrigation purposes. Numerous bas-reliefs remain, as do the thousand lingas that were embedded in the river to bless the water before it ran downhill to the royal city. This Hindu Pilgrimage site predates the Angkor Temples by some 200 years, thus making it the most ancient site in the region.

After lunch (not included), transfer to the famous Tonle Sap, the largest fresh water lake in Southeast Asia, for a memorable cruise to a nearby floating village. For most of the year the lake is fairly small, approximately only one meter deep with an area of 2,700 square km. However, during the monsoon season, the water is pushed up from the Mekong River into the lake, resulting in an increased area of 16,000 square km and a depth of up to nine meters, ultimately flooding nearby fields and forests. The floodplain provides a perfect breeding ground for fish. The livelihood of most of the local community depends largely on fishing and Tonle Sap accounts for 75 percent of Cambodia's annual inland fish catch. Return to the hotel after the tour.

Note: Depending on the time of year, the Tonle Sap boat ride might be unavailable in that event guests choose to do the Institute for Khmer Traditional Textile Tour, Siem Reap School Tour, or Cooking Class and Visit to Local Home. Please contact a travel consultant for more information. less


Siem Reap – Bangkok

Private transfer from the hotel to the airport for a flight to Bangkok. Reception at airport and transfer to the hotel. Enjoy the remainder of the day at leisure.

Journey to Wat Pho, Wat ARun & Down the Canals of Thonburi

After breakfast, drive to Wat Pho in time to experience the monks' morning chanting ritual. One of the oldest temples in Bangkok, Wat Pho is home to the famous 45m Reclining Buddha. It is also the original school of traditional Thai massage. From here, take a tuk-tuk ride through Pak Klong Taland Flower Market to the Grand Palace. The Grand Palace is the most important and spectacular royal palace in Thailand. The mysterious Emerald Buddha, the most revered Buddha image in Thailand, is now housed here.

Continue with a walk to the pier for a long-tailed boat ride along the "klongs" (canals) of Thonburi and stop at Wat Arun, once the grand royal temple to King Rama II. Afterwards, enjoy lunch at a local restaurant, cross the river again, and drive to Chinatown for a first-hand look at old Bangkok. Walk along the shops on Yaworat Road and have a cup of Chinese tea with the locals at a very old teashop. Proceed with a visit to the bustling Talad Kao Market, where a variety of food, fresh and dry fruits, and Chinese herbs are available. Return to the hotel afterwards.

Note: Wat Arun Temple will be under renovation until further notice. Guests can visit the temple and walk around it, but the constructions are ongoing and climbing the stupa is prohibited. Ladies should wear a short-sleeved top with pants or a knee-length skirt, and gentlemen should wear pants and a short-sleeved shirt for religious reasons. No sandals or flip-flops are allowed. less


Bangkok – Phuket

Transfer

Transfer to the airport for a flight to Phuket. Reception at the airport and transfer to the hotel. In the evening, transfer to Chalong Bay to enjoy a sunset dinner cruise upon a Burmese Junk. Head out into the calm waters of the bay and cruise among the flotilla of boats. Pass by Lone Island with its quiet beaches and tropical rainforest clad hills and Coral Island. This area is renowned for lovely sunsets. Enjoy a drink from the bar, a sumptuous Thai buffet dinner and take in a tropical sunset. Operates between November and April only. less


Exploring Phang Nga Bay National Marine Park

Enjoy a journey by speedboat to Phang Nga Bay National Marine Park. Cruise through hundreds of fascinating islands rising above the sea, and when the tide is low, paddle in an inflatable canoe with an expert guide to discover underwater caves. Explore the Dark Cave, Hong Island, Mangrove Cave and Diamond Cave.

Later, return to the boat for a cruise to visit James Bond Island, the famous island where "007 The Man with the Golden Gun" was filmed. Proceed to the stilt village of Panyi and enjoy a tasty Thai set lunch at a local restaurant. Spend some time swimming at Lawa or Naka Island before returning to the hotel in Phuket. less

It was great, we had a good time.

It was great, we had a good time. Vietnam and Cambodia are beautiful countries: people here were friendly, the food was excellent and the places we toured were amazing. Cuchi Tunnel in Vietnam was eye opening to see how these people lived underground during the war. In Cambodia the Angkor Archaeological Park is an amazing site to see, especially Angkor Wat temple is an architectural masterpiece. Thanks to you and your staff we had a great vacation; hotels, tour guides, flight schedules were all excellent. I have attached two pictures of our vacation. Once again thank you!

Our SE Asia trip was awesome.

Our SE Asia trip was awesome. It would take too long to go into even the highlights of the trip, because there were so many. Your people on the ground in Singapore, Bangkok and Hong Kong were terrific but the Kuala Lampur guy not so much. Best/highest kudos go to Sylvie in Bangkok who we feel went the extra mile to not only host us and show us around, but to take care of us like a mum on tours and events and even on our days of leisure. Our guy in Singapore and Christina in Hong Kong were merely excellent. The hotels were wonderful but we would stay at the Marina Bay Hotel in Singapore next time. What an awesome place that is. We have over 700 photos and a hundred stories about our experiences in these exotic lands.Thank you so much and your people and your colleagues for making this such a memorable trip for us.
