Bangkok and the River Kwai in Thailand. The Mekong Delta and Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. Phnom Penh, Battambang, Siem Reap, Angkor Wat and Tonle Sap lake in Cambodia. This is a holiday packed with must-see locations and famous places.

Your Thailand, Cambodia And Vietnam Tour Itinerary

Every day a new experience

Day One: Overnight flight to Bangkok

Your holiday begins with an overnight flight to Bangkok.

Day Two: An expertly guided tour of Bangkok

An afternoon's guided city tour starts on Rattanakosin Island, the 'royal island' on the bank of the river Kwai where the Grand Palace adjoins the Wat Phra Kaeo temple. The Wat Pho temple's gigantic reclining Buddha and the five-and-a-half ton Golden Buddha at Wat Traimit temple are among the highlights.

In the evening, you'll have the option to join your fellow travellers for a traditional Thai Dinner with Dance excursion to celebrate the first of your three nights in the city.

Day Three: Explore Bangkok, and take a River Kwai excursion

Discover Bangkok at your own pace, relax in your hotel, or join our optional excursion to the famous River Kwai. During this revealing trip you'll pass through rice fields and sugar-cane plantations, then head into the jungle. There, you'll be able to explore an area forever associated with the events of WWII, the construction of the 'Death Railway' and the infamous Bridge immortalised by the epic 1957 film.

Day Four: Visit the floating markets and Rose Garden

Take advantage of the morning's insightful optional excursion and you'll see the unique floating markets at Damnoen Saduak, and visit the 70-acre Rose Garden. Here,in the surrounds of a traditional Thai village, you can witness displays of Thai culture, the national sport of Muay Thai (Thai boxing) and folk dancing.

Day Five: Crossing into Cambodia

You'll have an early start, to make the most of the day, this morning, journeying through the unspoilt rural landscape to the border where you'll cross into Cambodia at Aranyaprathet-Poipet. Formalities completed, you'll begin the second part of your adventure with the short journey to Battambang, an elegant French colonial city.

Day Six: Boat trip across Tonle Sap to Siem Reap

Journey across Tonle Sap, South East Asia's 'Great Lake', and see the villages built entirely on stilts that are home to the 'floating communities' whose livelihoods depend on its waters. By mid afternoon you'll arrive in the colourful market town of Siem Reap, gateway to the temple complex of Angkor Thom and home to the archaeological Angkor National Museum.

In the evening, you can enjoy a traditional Cambodian dance show during dinner.

Day Seven: Visiting the Bayon temple, Angkor Thom and Angkor Wat

On the seventh day of your tour, you'll visit the Bayon temple, with its four giant heads and countless faces carved into the rock. Another unforgettable highlight is the 'lost city' of Angkor Thom: the great citadel of the Khmer Empire, which ruled up to half of South East Asia for nearly 600 years.

The most imposing and impressive of the great ruins is Angkor Wat. This is the world's largest religious building, and incorporates five great towers as well as a 1000-metre-long carved bas-relief.

Day Eight: Exploring the temples of Hariharalaya

Another day of exploration takes in the temples of Hariharalaya, plus the smaller temples of Banteay Srei and Banteay Samre, with its reliefs depicting Krishna legends.

Day Nine: Journey to Phnom Penh

Travel to the evocative Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh, set on the banks of the Mekong River, where you'll take an afternoon's guided tour that includes The Royal Palace, with its Silver Pagoda of priceless Buddhist artefacts.

Your evening dinner will be at the famous, riverside Foreign Correspondents' Club.

Day 10: Visit the Tuol Sleng Museum and travel along the Mekong into Vietnam

Experience a thought-provoking morning visit to the Tuol Sleng Museum, which chronicles the Pol Pot years and the reign of the Khmer Rouge. This is followed by the opportunity to take a good look around Cambodia's National Museum, the country's largest cultural, historical and archaeological museum.

You'll then board the fast boat for the thrilling wind-in-the-hair journey along the Mekong River into Vietnam, arriving at your overnight hotel in the border town of Chau Doc.

Day 11: Visit Nui Sam and travel to Can Tho

Your day begins with a visit to the holy mountain of Nui Sam. Featuring pagodas and temples, the mountain provides stunning views over the Mekong Delta, which you'll be heading towards. You'll stay overnight in the university town of Can Tho, with its colourful floating markets, busy, working harbour and sacred Khmer pagoda: Muniwangsyaram.

Day 12: Journey across the Mekong to Ho Chi Min City

Brilliantly coloured orchards, lush forests and traditional rice fields criss-crossed by a network of small tributaries: this is the unmistakable landscape of the Mekong Delta. And you'll be there, enjoying a boat ride through the floating markets of both Cai Rang and Cai Be. You'll also get to see the Delta town of Vinh Long.

Come the evening, you'll arrive in Ho Chi Minh City for a two-night stay.

Day 13: Explore the Cu Chi tunnels

The remarkable Cu Chi tunnel complex provides a poignant reminder of the country's recent history. This 200km underground labyrinth was used by the Viet Cong as a base, and now serves as a national memorial for those who lost their lives in the conflict.

Day 14: Ho Chi Minh city tour, afternoon airport transfers and flight

A guided tour of Ho Chi Minh City enables you to discover a fascinating mix of French colonial history and modern Vietnamese life. This includes the grand General Post Office, the Reunification Hall on the site of the former President's Palace, the Xa Loi Pagoda with its bronze Buddha, and (time-permitting) the War Remnants Museum.

You'll complete your tour with a celebratory Farewell Dinner: the perfect opportunity to look back on your holiday and relive the many highlights with your travelling companions (and new-found friends). Later, you'll transfer to the airport for your overnight flight back to the UK.

Day 15: Arrive back in the UK

You'll land back home after an unforgettable holiday, with memories, images and stories you can't wait to share with family and friends.

The only negative was after all the traveling starting Tues getting there Weds, We were all hot and bothered/tired but we then instead going back to hotel to shower orunpack , taken on trip around Bankok in heavy traffic and shown temples. I had booked for optional excursion meal and show and coach went to drop us all off at venue, but we still had not got back to hotel, so I and some others declind to go. So I had already prepaid but as not allowed to even freshen up i felt far too dirty and hot. So felt that a complete waste of my money had I known inavance would not have booked.

The visit on the arrival day was spoiled as after travelling for 20 hours, we were taken to visit the Palace in Bangkok straight from the plane. We would all have liked the opportunity to have gone to our hotel to shower and change clothes first. To make matters worse, several of the party including my wife were told they were inappropriately dressed for the Palace visit and had to open their suitcases in the airport and rummage for suitable clothing to change into.

The rest of the trip and excursions were well arranged.

Good coaches, the one in Cambodia also had Wifi. Plenty of chilled water on offer, which was essential.

Pleasant drivers and local guides.

Whistlestop your - not for the faint hearted. A lot of time on coaches , but many activities and sights were included. The local tour guides were outstanding sharing their personal stories of the aftermath of war - the American war and Pol pot's genocide. An ideal holiday for historians .

I thought this holiday was great value for money. Obviously, this holiday was designed for people with a real interest in the culture and history of SE Asia. It certainly delivered on both those aspects. Our local guides were all extremely pleasant and helpful and they were very knowledgeable. The hotels were all excellent and the food provided was very good.

Superb vfm. Well chosen itinerary, plenty if variation and well paced. Great site seeing combined with some truly excellent hotels. We were extremely fortunate with our fellow travellers; they were all seasoned travellers, we respected each other and things happened smoothly - I guess what you would expect from experienced travellers.
