A Glimpse Of Indochina - 21 Days

Indochina tour

Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia, the three nations of Indochina, share common characteristics of stunning natural beauty, rich culture and history. Each of them, however, has its own unique strengths on the tourism map. Vietnam’s unique natural and cultural history has endowed it with many world heritage sites and cultural values. Laos remains relatively unexplored and is possibly the most overlooked country in Asia despite its reach in culture, history and the fact that it is home to some of the richest and most intact ecosystems in Southeast Asia. For many people, the words “Angkor Wat” immediately spring to mind when someone mentions Cambodia. Cambodia is also said to be at the frontier of tourism.
The Mekong continues to run through all three countries and nowadays, many roads connect them all, making it easier for you to discover all their beauty in a relatively short time. Let us take you for a glimpse of Indochina countries on this 21-day trip.
