The best of Cambodia and Vietnam is unveiled on this journey from Bangkok to Hanoi. Discover the region's culture and beauty as we visit the stunning temples of Angkor, take a cross-border boat journey along the Mekong and immerse in Vietnam's markets and vibrant streets. Add to the adventure an overnight boat stay on Halong Bay, friendly locals and lots of scrumptious food - the only thing left to do is choose when to go.

Race around this bustling capital in the back of a tuk-tuk or take in the bright colours and heady smells of the Suan Lum Night Bazaar.
Days 2-4 Siem Reap/Angkor Wat
Discover the history of the Khmer Empire while exploring Angkor's temples. Be astounded by the Bayon and the crumbling, jungle-covered ruins of Ta Prohm. Angkor Wat is a must, and its silhouette at sunset is spectacular.

Cambodia's capital is the perfect place to delve into the country's history and culture. Confront the grim exhibits at the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum and visiting the sobering Killing Fields. Later, enjoy a coffee at a modern cafe along Sisowath Quay.

Watch riverside life pass by while crossing into Vietnam by boat.
