Vietnam, Laos and Thailand Adventure

This exciting journey takes us from bustling Hanoi and beautiful Halong Bay in the north of Vietnam to laid-back Luang Prabang in Laos; and by slow boat into northern Thailand through both Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai before delivering us in Bangkok, one of Asia's most exciting cities. We get happily lost in Hanoi's Old quarter, spend a night on a boat on Halong Bay and explore Chiang Mai's walled Old Town.

Tour Highlights

  • Hanoi - Getting lost in the bustling narrow streets of the Old Quarter
  • Halong Bay - Spending a night on a boat in one of South-east Asia's most iconic sites
  • Luang Prabang - Chilling out in this sleepy riverside town
  • Mekong River - Travelling by boat through rural Laos to the Thai border
  • Thailand - Time to enjoy the night markets and night life of Chiang Mai and Bangkok
