Itinerary

Day One

Your holiday begins with an overnight flight to Bangkok.

Day Two

This afternoon's guided city tour starts on the Royal Island, on the bank of the river, 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.

This evening, join our optional traditional Thai Dinner with Dance excursion to celebrate the first of your three nights in this wonderful city.

Day Three

Relax in Bangkok, or perhaps join our optional excursion to the River Kwai, and travel, through a fascinating countryside of rice fields and sugar-cane plantations, into the jungle to explore an area forever associated with the events of WWII, the construction of the 'Death Railway' and the infamous Bridge.

Day Four

On this morning's optional visit you'll see the wonderful floating markets at Damnoen Saduak, and visit the 70-acre Rose Gardens. Here in the surrounds of a traditional Thai village you can witness displays of Thai culture, Thai boxing, and folk dancing.

Day Five

We'll make an early start this morning, journeying through the unspoilt rural landscape to the colourful border crossing into Cambodia at Aranya Prathet-Poipet. The formalities completed, we'll begin the second part of your adventure with the short journey to Battambang, an elegant, friendly French colonial city.

Day Six

Journey across the waters of Tonle Sap, South East Asia's 'Great Lake', past villages built entirely on stilts and 'floating communities' that make a living from the lake. You'll arrive, by mid afternoon, in the colourful market town of Siem Reap, gateway to the incredible complex of Ankhor Thom, and home to the Ankhor National Museum.

This evening, enjoy a traditional Cambodian dance show during dinner.

Day Seven

Today you'll visit the astounding 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 dazzling of the great ruins that litter a vast area is the awe-inspiring Angkor Wat, the world's largest religious building, with its five great towers and 1000-metre-long carved bas-relief. You'll return to the hotel truly amazed at your discoveries.

Day Eight

Another day of exploration takes in the temples of Hariharalaya, as well as the smaller temple of Banteay Srei, and Banteay Samre, with its reliefs depicting Krishna legends. Your last evening in Siem Reap will be full of memories to savour.

Day Nine

Travel to the Cambodian capital Phnom Penh, set on the bank of the Mekong River. The Royal Palace, with its Silver Pagoda of priceless Buddhist artefacts, is among the highlights of this afternoon's guided introductory tour.

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

Day 10

A sobering morning visit to the Tuoi Sleng Museum - which chronicles the inhumanity of the 'Pol Pot' years, when the Khmer Rouge terrorised the populace - is followed by the chance to marvel at the exhibits in the National Museum.

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

Day 11

The day begins with a visit to the holy mountain of Nui Sam, with its pagodas, temples and stunning views over the Mekong Delta (into which you'll head today). You'll stay overnight in the elegant university town of Can Tho, with its colourful floating markets, its bustling harbour and sacred Khmer pagoda - Muniwangsyaram.

Day 12

Another journey through stunning scenery takes you across the Mekong landscape of orchards, verdant foliage and rice fields criss-crossed by a network of small tributaries. You'll enjoy a boat ride to Cai Rang's floating market, and will visit the delta town of Vinh Long as well as another fascinating market at Cai Be.

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

Day 13

The remarkable Cu Chi tunnel complex gives an introduction to the country's recent history. A 200km underground labyrinth used by the Viet Cong as a base, it now serves as a memorial for those who died in the conflict.

Returning to Ho Chi Minh City you'll discover a fascinating mix of French colonial history and modern Vietnamese life on our guided tour. Don't miss 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 end your tour - and relive the highlights - with a celebratory Farewell Dinner.

Day 14

Today you'll discover a fascinating mix of French colonial history and modern Vietnamese life on our guided tour of Ho Chi Minh City. Don't miss 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 end your tour - and relive the highlights - with a celebratory Farewell Dinner. Later, you'll transfer to the airport for your return overnight flight to the UK.

Day 15

Arrive back in the UK at the end of a fascinating tour.

Flights were from London Heathrow to Bangkok, via Ho Chi Minh city and we would have preferred to go direct to Bangkok. Local Thai guides and coach very good, same with local guides in Cambodia and Vietnam and all the excursions. Two of the hotels were not as good as all of the others, but the 2 Victoria hotels, and the Tara Ankhor hotel were superb.

Colchester area Single traveller
Half a day was lost by flying to Ho-Chi-Mihn City first then on to Bangkok. Hotels were excellent as were the tour guides. Early morning start times didn't suit everyone however it would not be possible to complete such a comprehensive tour without leaving early. I would have preferred an evening meal each night rather than lunch but this is just a personal observation. On the whole an excellent trip but not as good as The Best of China.

We enjoyed our holiday very much, with a very nice crowd of people, though very tiring in the heat and a lot of early starts.
The only thing we didn't like was the crossing the Thailand/ Cambodian border. All the tour managers were wonderful (4), and helped us have a wonderful holiday.

Cornwall Couple
Thought Tigers and the Taj Mahal was good but this was it's equal, the whole experience is not to be missed! The itinerary is hectic but with so much organised by the local tour guides it's the only way to fit everything in, quality of hotels was fantastic, a mix of traditional and colonial. Food was amazing, something for everyone and some spectacular locations for daytime meals, almost a shame to have to do the next planned attraction which was always local to the restaurant. The blend of interest and cultural is perfect with lots of fun elements too, bamboo railway, high speed boat trip to railway bridge and walking around the local markets selling some dishes that should clearly just not be eaten! A brilliant trip, and would certainly recommend.
