14-Day Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos Tour

By Nora OuUpdated Jun. 24, 2022
Sync with Indochina's Heartbeat

It might be the exotic name of Indochina that grabs you first. Over time, you are destined to sync with the heartbeat of the region: cruising in the breeze of Halong Bay, cooking at a local chef's kitchen in Hoi An, touching the exquisite carvings of Angkor Wat, offering alms to the monks in Luang Prabang's morning and bathing an elephant in the Nam Khan River. Merge yourself with Indochina and make this fortnight the memory of a lifetime.
