Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand & Myanmar (Burma) Trip Details
Small group trips take you to the high points of this varied part of the globe, from Vietnam's paddy fields to the vertiginous power of Bangkok. This slide show shows some of the amazing attractions that await you when you visit Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Burma and Thailand.
Mekong Delta - known as Vietnam's paddy dish - is the place to see Vietnam. Villages here are as they have been for hundreds of years, a way of living characterized by swimming market, fishers and peasants working the paddy fields. The area is in charge of about half of Vietnam's entire agricultural sector.
Sapa is a small hilltop village in the heart of a beautiful landscape. It is bordered by terraced paddy paddies encircled by a magnificent mountains. It is one of the most spectacular coves in the whole wide open space, with over 2,000 islets and many caverns. Saigon - now known as Ho Chi Minh is Vietnam's biggest energy producing metropolis and could hardly differ from the Mekong Delta and Sapa farming area.
Memories of the town' s history stand in stark opposition to futurist high-rises that stand side by side with tranquil wards. There is no need to be interested in archeology to explore the breathtaking Temple of Angkor. The World Heritage Site is one of the most spectacular in South East Asia, with architecture ranging from the ninth to the fifteenthcentury.
It has many churches of great spiritual and culturally importance, and the Bayon Temple, whose iconical faces can be seen here, is one of the most notable. An enchanting UNESCO-listed town, situated at the junction of two streams, this is the ideal place to see buddhistic friars at a typical charity-worship.
It has a fascinating mixture of timber cottages in the traditional village atmosphere and the remains of former France's sovereignty. Well-known for its vibrant night life, Bangkok is just as interesting by night if you can take a tuk-tuk trip through the Old Town to see places of interest such as the Grand Palace and the Golden Mountain.
Bagan is an unbelievable UNESCO preserved area, dotted with temple ruins and stupa. It is much less congested than Cambodia's Angkor, but just as impressing. Explore the waterways of this scenic sea to experience a typical Myanmar lifestyle that has remained the same for innumerable years.
You will see fisherman at work at daybreak and later in the morning you can go to some of the many metallurgical plants on the shores of the reservoir to buy local produce such as jewelry and clothing.
