Beyond The Mekong BM

Trip Duration 16 Days

Thailand, Cambodia And Laos Adventure Tour

This exciting journey uncovers northern Thailand before taking us deep into South East Asia's less visited countries of Laos and Cambodia. We cruise along the Mekong River through a countryside of jungle covered hills and small fishing villages as we journey to Luang Prabang, Laos' sleepy riverside gem. We fly on to French colonial Vientiane then make our way further south to Cambodia, where we discover the buzzing capital city of Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, the gateway to the epic temples of Angkor.

Tour Highlights

  • Bangkok - Discover the glittering Grand Palace and the temple of the Reclining Buddha at Wat Po
  • Chiang Mai - Explore the bustling old walled town full of ancient temples
  • Mekong River - Take a boat journey past rugged cliffs, fishing villages and jungle covered hills
  • Luang Prabang - Wander through the sleepy French Colonial riverside town
  • Angkor Temples - Marvel at the iconic and awe-inspiring Khmer temple complex of Angkor
