Two weeks of mouth-watering countryside, fascinating history, and some of the best food on earth? Yes, please!

On our Vietnam and Cambodia tour, you’ll experience the very best these two special countries have to offer.

The tour takes in all the best bits of Cambodia and Vietnam, and then some. Our 14-day itinerary is packed with everything from cooking classes and snorkelling to cruising and cycling, all within the most beautiful of surroundings.

You’ll visit houses on stilts, you’ll swim in warm, crystal-clear waters, and drift down creeks that are densely lined with palm trees; you’ll consume the craziest combinations of flavours that ignite your tastebuds at every meal. This trip has been designed with families in mind, so any long journeys will be broken up with activities.

If you love adventure and culture, if you like sensational scenery (and if you want to see what it looks like when a tree devours a temple), come and join us in Vietnam and Cambodia. Take a look at the itinerary and dates below – and don’t let life pass you by.

Prices for adults (over 12 years old) – £3100

Prices for children (12 years old and under) – £2900

  • Day 10: DAY TOUR OF ANGKOR WAT

    DAY TOUR OF ANGKOR WAT Siem Reap has lots going for it but nothing more special than Angkor Wat Historical Park, home to countless incredible 12th-century structures. You’ll arrive by tuk-tuk to explore the best temples (keep an eye out for one temple that’s been eaten by a tree!). Your guide will talk you through the incredible history of the region and answer any questions you might have. After you’ve had your fill, you’ll head back to the hotel for a dip in the pool or to enjoy some more free time in the town.

Vietnam & Cambodia Family Adventure Reviews

Vietnam & Cambodia Family Adventure Frequently Asked Questions

  • Whats the currency used?

    The best currency to take to Cambodia is the local currency, the Cambodian riel. US dollars are also highly exchangeable at local banks and currency exchange offices. However, instead of converting physical banknotes, the cheapest way to pay in Cambodia is to use a multi-currency travel debit card like Revolut or Wise.




  • What type of traveller might want to visit Vietnam and Cambodia?

    Vietnam is well-known for its natural scenic beauty and Cambodia, for its fascinating history and culture, ranging from gorgeous National Parks to relaxing islands and beaches.




  • What is the weather like?

    Southeast Asia is a tropical region of Asia. Northern Vietnam is one of the only regions in Southeast Asia with a cold winter and snow at a higher altitude. The best time to visit would be March-April when rainfall is low and temperatures milder.




  • How to pack for this trip?

    Your main means of transport while you are visiting Vietnam and Cambodia will be by vehicle, walking and also some cycling so you will need to pack comfortable clothing and footwear.

    It tends to be very warm in southeast Asia so packing light and breathable clothing will prove very beneficial! It is an atheist state and their general culture is quite conservative so modesty is a bit more prevalent than it is in the UK. Going to temples you would be required to dress sensibly and respectfully. Hiking boots will be a necessity as there are a couple of treks and a lot of walking in general

     


  • What vaccinations are recommended when visiting south east Asia?

    Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Typhoid, Cholera, Yellow Fever, Japanese Encephalitis, Rabies, Tickborne Encephalitis and Polio.
