Cambodia and Vietnam are breath-taking destinations of diverse delights. Travelers gripped by the sights and sounds, bewitched by their geniality and divine cuisine, captivated by fast-moving cities like Ho Chi Minh, the Mecca in which Vietnam flourishes, and enlightened by the palaces, cathedrals and the thousands of stalagmites of Sung Sot cave. Such a concoction of history, French colonial influences; and tales of past upheaval ensure a majestic holiday.
During our fantastic 12 day trip across Cambodia and Vietnam, undergo an exhilarating renovation of the senses. Venture into the jungle’s vines and creepers towards Angkor Wat, the 12th-century temple and shrine of Khmer art and architecture, a Cambodian mascot with its sculpted towers of lotus blossom and stately surroundings worshiped by Buddhists monks.
Wander through the ancient capital of Khmer, empire to the exuberant cities of Siem Reap, Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi, before cruising in Agatha Christie style across Halong Bay, passing some of the 3,000 limestone islands. Add spice by devouring the Vietnamese cuisine of Bến Thành Market infused with a vast spectrum of enticing and evocative flavors, making taste buds explode. “I changed my whole palate like a lot of the dishes I used to love became boring to me.” - Anthony Bourdain.
