Immerse yourself in fascinating cultures and ancient traditions as you embark on an inspiring journey through Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam. Along the way, learn more about the history of each country, marvel at spectacular scenery, and interact with the friendly locals. This is a journey that will create memories you won't soon forget!

Start in Luang Prabang, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where you will visit several prominent temples and a local village to see a weaving demonstration and learn how sa paper is made from the pulp of mulberry trees. On to Siem Reap, where you will visit the spectacular Angkor temple complex, whose architectural grandeur is arguably unmatched among the world's ancient ruins. See several of the temples, including spectacular Angkor Wat and the mesmerizing faces of Bayon. Here you will also enjoy a private Apsara dance performance and will visit a development project teaching young adults traditional handicraft techniques. Then, start your cruise on the Mekong River, the thread that connects the people of Southeast Asia. Visit a colorful local market, a sampan builder, and a local establishment to see how rice wine and traditional candy are made. In Phnom Penh, take a tour of the city by private cyclo, with visits to the National Museum and the Royal Palace with the stunning Silver Pagoda. Walking tours through the rural villages of Long Khong A and Angkor Ban and an ox cart ride through the countryside at Kampong Tralach will grant you a memorable inside look at life along the river and interactions with the local people. In bustling Ho Chi Minh City your sightseeing includes the Cu Chi Tunnels-a vast network of tunnels used by the Viet Cong. You will also partake in a walking tour of the city's landmarks and a hands-on Vietnamese cooking class. End in Hanoi, capital of Vietnam. Ride a cyclo through Hanoi's fascinating Old Quarter, see a water puppet performance, and take a trip through the countryside to stunning Ha Long Bay for a cruise through the 3,000 limestone islands.

All of this and more await you on this fabulous journey!
