- This trip exceeded my expectations in many ways .. Vietnam highlights include the Halong Bay and the Mekong Delta boat trips which were fantastic yet totally different. The stay at the bungalows in the Central Highlands culminating in a elephant ride across the lake was magical. The contrasts between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh city were fascinating and you 'will' eventually master the traffic! The people of Vietnam are so friendly, visiting markets and even homes in rural areas was a great experience. The tour has great variety wonderfully brought to life by Binh the tour leader whose knowledge and confidence were inspirational. The Cambodian week was quite different still varied with two big features, most found the Killing Fields very emotional and then later were blown away by the temples at Angkor Wat especially the 'Tombraiders' temple with trees wrestling with ancient temple buildings.
I would totally recommend this trip, adventurers will not be disappointed.
