Vietnam & Angkor Wat

Scroll

If you come to Vietnam for the delicious food, dramatic landscapes and bustling markets, you will stay for the people whose complex history and rich heritage continue to seduce even the most seasoned travellers. Be humbled by the recounting of war-time stories with French colonial buildings as a backdrop in Ho Chi Minh City. Embrace the sense of awe that takes over while waking up to the dragon-like island formations dotting Ha Long Bay. Get up close and personal with locals while discovering true foodie culture, spanning from humble broths to rich curries. The sprawling temples of Angkor will leave you speechless, as Cambodia’s ancient traditions contrast with modern culture.

Highlights include: seeing the countryside, geography and daily life of Vietnamese and Cambodians, the floating villages, Hanoi Hilton, Cuchi tunnels, Ha Long Bay cave, street life of Hanoi, and Ho Chi Minh city.

Very well-organized! There were so many highlights, including the optional tours that our Group Guru organized, which were so much fun! Highlights for me include sunrise at Angkor Wat, cycling through Hanoi, and the restaurants in Hoi An.

There was something for everyone on this trip

Recently returned to Canada from the 19 day Vietnam & Angkor Wat tour with Approach Tours. There was something for everyone on this trip. The accommodation, the meals, the service were top notch! My fellow travelers were fun and full of adventure. Our tour guru Marie-Claude was exceptional. She handled any hiccups with grace and diplomacy. The local buses and national tour guides were fun and full of information. We did a lot of travelling and saw many interesting sites. Thank you Approach Tours!
