Your Example Itinerary
Fly from the UK to Siem Reap
Welcome to Siem Reap, the gateway to the fascinating temples of Angkor, one of the world’s most impressive historical sights. Here, you’ll join your guide for a tour of Angkor’s temples, losing yourself in the atmospheric ruins of a long lost civilisation. After watching the sun rise dramatically above Angkor Wat, you’ll spend the day the archaeological wonders of the temples, including Angkor Thom, Bayon, Angkor Wat and many others.

Continue on to Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s lively capital. Here you can gaze upon the glittering golden spires of the Royal Palace and admire the Silver Pagoda and the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, as well as browsing the museums and temples. While you’re here, you’ll join a tour of the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum and the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek, a fascinating yet disturbing insight into life in Cambodia during the rule of the Khmer Rouge.
4* White Mansion Boutique Hotel
Set sail on a three night cruise along the Mekong River. Starting in Phnom Penh, you’ll pass huge commercial ships as you head for the Vietnamese border. Partake in a Cambodian and Vietnamese cookery class, then explore the markets near Tan Chau and the nearby floating villages and catfish farms. You’ll also explore Binh Thanh Island by sampan and the Cai Be floating market and learn how to make rice paper, rice cookies and rice wine. End your cruise in Ho Chi Minh City.
Ho Chi Minh City
The largest city in Vietnam is a bustling place, filled with historical sights, museums, cafés and sizzling street food.
