- Highlights were the temples at Angkor, just spectacular. We also loved the overnight train from Hanoi to Hue, the Imperial Tombs at Hue, the Red Bridge Cooking lesson at Hoi An and wandering around Saigon. The food throughout was just amazing. We didn't really enjoy Sapa, the weather was foggy, trekking was sliding through mud and it seemed a bit of the local character had been lost to a focus on selling souvenirs to tourists.
The Moonlight at Hue and Liberty Central in Saigon were both excellent. Somadevi Angkor Boutique and Resort in Siem Reap was great, well worth the upgrade. Wouldn't recommend the U Sapa hotel, it was noisy day and night.
Tour guides were good; our guide in Cambodia was great at giving information on the temples then letting us wander at our own pace. Our guide in Saigon was really really good when I was ill and we needed to cut some parts from our itinerary.
