Your Itinerary

Day 1 - Hanoi

On arrival in Hanoi you will be met and transferred to the city for a 2 night stay at the stylish and modern Silk Path Hotel which is located just a few minutes walk from the fascinating maze of streets in old Hanoi. It’s a great location for exploring and admiring the fine old villas in the French Quarter or taking a stroll by the tranquil waters of Hoan Kiem Lake in the city centre.

Day 3 - Halong Bay

Have a good breakfast before heading off on the journey to Halong Bay where you will spend the night on a traditional Chinese Junk boat. During your cruise you will be able to see the huge limestone rocks which rise up out of the water and give the bay such an unusual appearance. You’ll have time to swim, snorkel or kayak in the tranquil waters before heading back to the boat for sunset and dinner.

Day 4 - Danang and Hoi An

Wake up early to see the sun rise and listen to the sounds of the waves gently lapping. The area is quite mystical in the early mornings as the rocks are often topped by mist and the early start is well worth it. There will be time for swimming or kayaking this morning before brunch and your return to Halong City where you disembark and travel back to Hanoi airport for your flight to Danang.

On arrival in Danang you will be picked up and taken along the beautiful coastal road to the Boutique Hotel where you will stay for 3 nights. Located around 3 km outside of Hoi An town, the hotel provides you with both a beautiful beachside location and easy access to the shops, restaurants and bars of Hoi An so you could use this time to relax and rejuvenate by the beach or explore the many shop filled lanes of historic Hoi An town.

Day 7 - Saigon

Move on today to the Southern city of Saigon where you will be met at the airport and taken to the bustling city for a 3 night stay at the Saigon Prince.

Located right in the heart of Saigon, the Saigon Prince hotel is a great place to base yourself during your stay in the city. You are within easy walking distance of many of the city’s most famous attractions including Ben Thanh Market, the Opera House, the Hotel de Ville, and Saigon River. Don’t miss the fantastic Notre Dame Cathedral or a visit to Chinatown.

Day 10 - Phnom Penh

Today you will be starting the Cambodia part of your holiday with a short flight from Saigon to Phnom Penh. You will be met on arrival in Phnom Penh for a scenic transfer to the city to be dropped off at the central White Mansion for a 2 night stay.

This hotel’s great location leaves you just a short taxi ride away from the vibrant riverside area, palaces and temples if you would like to explore independently. Do take some time to browse the shops and stalls beside the river, it’s a great place to absorb life in the capital and sit for a while and watch the world go by. For some relaxation between sightseeing trips there’s a large swimming pool as well as a spa and health club.

Day 12 - Siem Reap and Angkor Wat

Travel onwards today to your final destination Siem Reap and the magnificent Temples of Angkor. You will be met again at the airport and taken for a 3 night stay at the Prince D’Angkor Hotel.

Located along the road to Angkor Wat, the hotel is ideally located for exploring the many amazing temples and beautiful sights of the region.

In between sightseeing trips there are plenty of facilities to keep you occupied whether you choose to relax around the swimming pool or make use of the hotels gym. There are also bicycles to hire if you want to try a novel way of discovering the area. In the evening a short taxi ride will take you into town to explore the markets and shops in the town.
