Angkor Wat is one of South East Asia’s most photographed sites. Close to Siem Reap, it is your introduction to Indochina before you fly from Cambodia to Vietnam’s capital, Hanoi, in the north of the country. Hanoi is a very interesting city which demands some attention before you travel east to cruise on Halong Bay, another wonderful UNESCO World Heritage site.

The next stop is Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam’s commercial Centre from which you can enjoy both the Mekong Delta to the west and the Vietcong’s Cu Chi Tunnels to the north. You will marvel at how small they are yet they were an effective shelter from USA attack and communications routes during the Vietnam War.
