Why Book this trip
This classic journey through Indochina is a combination of three of our shorter tours: Indochina Explorer (QBK), Good Morning Vietnam (QVN) and Backroads from Hanoi to Bangkok (QLT). The trip has been planned using mainly public transport and travels overland as much as possible to give a real flavour of local travel. Plenty of free time is planned in to allow you to decide what to see and do in each destination, although we do offer optional excursions. This epic journey is for the more adventurous and is a great way to see the entire region.
