A journey through Vietnam and Cambodia

Embark on an unforgettable adventure through Southeast Asia, a region of captivating diversity and charm. Start your journey in Vietnam, a nation that has risen from the ashes of war to become one of Asia’s most dynamic and vibrant countries. Experience the elegance and energy of Hanoi, the artistic and cultural hub of the north. Explore Hue, the ancient imperial city that still retains its graceful charm on the banks of the Perfume River. Discover Ho Chi Minh City, the pulsating metropolis that never sleeps.

From there, cruise along the Mekong Delta, the lifeline of millions of people who live along its fertile banks. Witness the contrast between the modern and the traditional, the urban and the rural, the rich and the poor. Arrive in Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia, where you can admire the colonial architecture and learn about the tragic history of this resilient country. The highlight of your trip awaits you at Angkor, the majestic city of temples that once ruled over a vast empire. Marvel at the exquisite art and architecture of this ancient civilisation, and feel the spiritual power of this sacred site.

This is a journey that will touch your heart and soul, and leave you with memories that will last a lifetime.
