Reference number: Quintessential Asia

From: £2309.00

Ticking off Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam’s classic highlights in 13 days may seem a little ambitious and we’re not denying it’s a fast-paced itinerary. However, it’s an excellent introduction to the region and we guarantee you will want to return and delve deeper into each country.

You’ll visit five of Asia’s most iconic cities: Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Luang Prabang, Siem Reap and Hanoi. Whilst there are some similarities (welcoming local people for one), each city boasts its own individual vibe, unique cultural highlights and tasty regional cuisine. Your journey concludes with a relaxing overnight cruise through Halong Bay’s stunning scenery: time to relax and reflect.
