For breathtaking scenery, join a traditionally styled junk for a boat ride to remember in spectacular Halong Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage site famous for 1000s of limestone islands jutting up from the calm waters. There’s chance to get a glimpse of authentic Cambodia from the villages at My Tho, the vibrant floating markets at Cai Rang and the natural beauty of Tra Su Forest and its Bird Sanctuary.
The adventure continues in Cambodia’s waterside capital, Phnom Penh and you’ll arrive in style travelling by speedboat up the Mekong River. Spend the next days touring the city including the Khmer Royal Palace and the capital’s oldest shrine at Wat Phnom. A sunset boat-ride of the capital is an absolute must too.
A short flight away is Siem Reap and the magnificent world-famous temple complex of Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom. The sunset view from Bakheng Hill is one you’ll remember forever.
