Overlanding through Thailand, Cambodia and Laos we'll take our time to get to know this stunning part of South East Asia. Starting in Thailand we will see this popular country from a different perspective, 'bush' camping and visiting local villages will give us an experience most travellers miss. Then into Cambodia and the truly breathtaking Angkor Wat, the largest religious complex ever built. Find a quiet point at sunset and contemplate the meaning of life. Next we head into southern Laos, one of the most welcoming countries in the world and onto Luang Prabang on the banks of the mighty Mekong river gives us chance to witness the monks receiving alms at dawn.
Days 1-2 Bangkok/East Thailand
From the busy city streets of Bangkok, travel through the remote Isan region of East Thailand.
Days 3-5 Battambang/Phnom Penh
Laidback Battambang is a colonial gem, full of well-preserved villas and shophouses clustered around a lazy riverside. Arrive in Phnom Penh and reflect on Cambodia's years of war at the Tuol Sleng Museum and visit the infamous Killing Fields.
Days 6-9 Siem Reap/Angkor
Explore the sights of Siem Reap. A visit to the old market is a must, wandering through the stalls and surrounding shops discover silks, cottons, sarongs, silver and statues that are a riot of colour and a feast for the eyes. Head out to marvel at the temples of Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom. Be blown away by the sheer magnitude and grandeur of these ancient ruins - they are nothing short of spectacular. Finish days spent temple-hopping by watching the sun set over the ruins.
Days 10-11 North-East Thailand
Get a glimpse of the Thailand of old, a country where rice fields run on as far as the eye can see and silk-weaving is still a cottage industry. Explore Phimai, one of the country's best surviving Khmer temples.
Days 12-18 Laos/Luang Prabang
Come face-to-face with the fusion of Asia and Europe in sleepy Vientiane. Then chill out in Vang Vieng and take in the surrounding limestone karst surrounds. Go temple-hopping in Luang Prabang and be sure to climb to the top of Phu Si for amazing views over the town.
