amazing tour to vietnam and cambodia

While you will be covering distance in this Indochina travel package, it will not be a rush. Cruising in Halong Bay is peaceful and slow-paced, while a boat down the Mekong River from Cambodia into Vietnam and the Delta is a real treat. This Indochina holiday finishes at one of the best beaches in Vietnam with time to reflect on the three countries you have seen in 18 days. Truly magical!

Arriving in Hanoi, the first thing on your itinerary is a city tour of Hanoi before you head east to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Halong Bay. There is 120 kilometres of coastline dotted with fishing villages and a host of islands through which your boat will cruise.

Your short flight south to Danang allows you to see the best of Hoi An, an ancient trading port during the Champa Kingdom before you continue on to Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) en route to Siem Reap in Cambodia. Siem Reap opens up the Angkor Complex which is a great way to begin your time in Cambodia. There is plenty to see during your time in the country, the Tonle Sap Lake and Phnom Penh including the historical aspects of the Khmer Rouge regime. The Mekong River is navigable southwards from Phnom Penh and you then cruise back down into Vietnam and Chau Doc just across the border in Vietnam. It is then off to the Delta’s largest city, Can Tho and thence Ho Chi Minh City.

You go to see the Vietcong’s Cu Chi Tunnels north of the City until having the chance to relax in one of Vietnam’s top coastal resorts and best beaches, Mui Ne. You can choose how to spend most of your time there before heading back to Ho Chi Minh City to end your Vietnam tour.

13 days in Vietnam and 5 days in Cambodia allowed us to discover these countries from North to South in Vietnam: Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hue, Hoi An, Sai Gon, Mui Ne and the Mekong Delta and finally Siem Reap and the formidable Khmer temples. We tackled the local populations: lagoons fishing, bike ride, culinary preparations, local dances, markets of all kinds in town and countryside. Thanks to the impeccable organization of Vivutravel, all this has been done safely and for our greatest pleasure. We highly recommend Vivutravel and we will book with this agency our next trip in Laos.

18 days tour to Vietnam and Cambodia with Vivutravel was an unforgettable vacation to us. A big thank you to Vivutravel and especially Hoai. We loved our tour: the rhythm of the visits, the accommodations, the seaside, all thanks to the professionalism of this agency. We recommend Vivutravel without hesitation and we hope to leave with them for other destinations in Asia.

We promised ourselves an exotic holiday when we retired. Time would not be a problem then, and after years of working hard we thought we deserved it. Our choice after looking at a number of destinations in Asia, was this tour of Vietnam and Cambodia. We used Vivu Travel in Hanoi who made all the arrangements for us. Trang at Vivu Travel answered all our questions and on arrival we were met by Duy as soon as we cleared customs. Hanoi was a great place to start what was to be a memorable holiday for both of us. We are the envy of many of our friends and we get the feeling that some of them are thinking seriously of talking to Duy themselves. We think they should.

My husband and I recently took our 18-day-honeymoon vacation to Vietnam and Cambodia. To say the trip exceeded our expectations in every aspect would be an understatement. Not only were the two countries breathtaking and the food delicious, but the service provided by Vivutravel was second to none! Ms. Ha reached out to us after we filled out the inquiry. She listened to our desires and proposed a perfect itinerary within the budget that we listed as realistic. Her attention to the fine details was incredible. After officially moving forward with Vivutravel, we were unsure how much more contact we would have before going over to Cambodia and Vietnam. However, our concerns were quickly put to ease when Ha ensured us that he would be booking our airfare, accommodations, private tour guides and private drivers. While all of that was more than my husband and I expected, Vivutravel even assured us that their team would be able to book all of our restaurants and Ha would be available 24/7 to take care of us during our stay in Cambodia and Vietnam. And we actually loved EVERYTHING about our vacation! All the tour guides were so insightful and pleasant. Vinh in Hanoi, Linh in Hoi An, Do in Saigon, Seoung in Cambodia gave us great education on the history of the cities and made sure to give us great local recommendations on things to do and places to eat after the tours. The drivers were also incredibly friendly and exceptional. We enjoyed the feeling of security knowing that Ha and Vivutravel were always there if we needed anything at all. We were honestly so pleased with our trip that we don't think we would change anything. Vivutravel honestly organized the PERFECT HONEYMOON for us.
