Showcasing the best of Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam, Indochina is home to numerous UNESCO World Heritage Sites. From the vibrant cityscape of Cambodia to Halong Bay's magnificent limestone karsts, and from marveling at the wonders of Angkor Wat to shopping for souvenirs in Ho Chi Minh City, this trip encompasses the highlights of the region.
We began the trip in lovely and languid Luang Prabang, Laos. It was an absolute delight to enjoy the combination of rich culture and lush nature in this charming town. Halong Bay, Vietnam is the only natural World Heritage Site on this list, and it is certainly one of the most memorable with a forest of karst peaks soaring skywards from the sea. From bikes and boats, to buffalos and bridges, it has been a wonderful experience throughout.
