Tour Overview

Our adventure starts at Luang Prabang, Laos, which has a vast array of colonial era buildings that are interspersed with many interesting shops and cafes. Stand face-to-face with the famous Golden Buddha while visiting the Royal Palace. A trip down the Mekong River will give you a chance to discover the 4, 000 images along the Pak Ou Cave walls. Empathize with baffled archeologists as we see hundreds of large jars strewn across Xieng Khouang's Plain of Jars. Then it's off to Vietnam where all the sights will surely overwhelm the senses; from Hanoi's breathtaking architecture to the historical richness of Ho Chi Minh City. The trip wouldn't be complete without a boat trip along the Halong Bay in the Gulf of Tonkin; cruising alongside the many rural fishermen who make their living between the many serene islands. An excursion to Cambodia's Angkor Wat is an opportunity that will not be passed-up, nor is a chance to stroll through the bustling markets of its capital, Phnom Penh.

Regions visited: Southeast Asia
Countries visited: Thailand; Laos; Vietnam and Cambodia


They [The Hotels] were all way beyond my expectation. Internet available in most, great breakfasts, helpful staff, comfortable beds, and hot showers.

I absolutely loved the tour in Luang Prabang to the temple for the annual celebration with the monks. It was a highlight.I particulary enjoyed the excrusion to Dien Bien Phu and the experience of the dinner and evening with the Black Thai family.

I enjoyed almost all the excursions very much. Standouts are Ha Long Bay, of course, Plain of Jars, Vang Vien, the cyclo ride in Hanoi,My Son, Cham Art Museum in Danang, all the sites in the three countries that explored the history of the American War in SE Asia. All of the local guides were great, all knowledgeable, friendly, energetic and left us with a positive impression of their countries. All transportation was good. Food was better than I expected. Erin, our tour leader, was ingenious in planning interesting menus with the restaurants. I must add a word about the venues though. Erin is joyful, energetic, friendly, tolerant, and full of patience. We all loved her. Erin has made it her business to know as much as possible about the local cultures. I felt that her commentaries meshed beautifully with the information given to us by the local guides.

Boat trips were the best part of the trip - a good way to see the country and a nice refreshing ride on the river. Liked Ha Long Bay excursion, Mekong Delta tour, other shorter boat rides in Hue, Mekong R in Laos, Floating Village, even boat trips on the way to dinner.

This was a very interesting trip. I enjoyed every day of it and learned a lot.

Our guide ,Mien, for middle Vietnam was outstanding. She was a charming young woman who told us very moving human interest stories about life in her country. Her English was very understandable.

I like the Adventures Abroad itineraries, costs (including evening meals, admission fees, tips for local guides and drivers etc.) and knowledgable tour leaders. I know, up front, what to expect re: costs and there are no surprises. I also value the limit on the number of participants on a tour. The level of physical ability required is clearly identified and useful. I would definitely recommend Adventures Abroad to my friends and know that I will take another tour through your company.

As an overall guiding principle: I prefer interaction with locals in as authentic a way as possible. For that reason the evening with the Black Thai outside Dien Bien Phu was my favourite excursion.
