Perfect for solo travellers who want to join a group of like-minded people. Fly overnight from Ireland to Hanoi to begin a sixteen-day tour of incredible Vietnam and Cambodia.

Fly overnight to Hanoi, Vietnam elegant capital city. On arrival at the airport you will be met by a member of the Wendy Wu Tours team and transferred to the hotel. The rest of the day is free.

The next morning, you will meet your fellow travellers and head out to explore the city! We’ll visit Ho Chi Minh’s mausoleum, the Stilt House, One Pillar Pagoda and the Temple of Literature, before we sit down together to sample traditional Vietnamese egg coffee.

The highlight of any trip to Vietnam, this morning we take to the waters of the incredible Halong Bay. A UNESCO World Heritage Site and a vision of awe-inspiring beauty, we’ll sail lazily amongst the limestone karst peaks, soaking up the views from the deck of your traditional vessel and docking to visit an impressive cave.

Rise early the next day to watch the sun rise over the bay, and to take part in an invigorating session of Tai Chi on deck. Fly to Danang and transfer to the charming town of Hoi An. 

On the morning of day 6, we will share a community experience in the rural village of Tra Que, joining a local family for lunch and a cooking demonstration. This afternoon, we will wander the sights of Hoi An, stopping at Reaching Out, a social enterprise craft workshop, before enjoying a well-deserved tea break in the tea house. 

The next day is a free day for you to spend as you wish; your guide will be on hand to give options and ideas. You'll then fly to Saigon, Vietnam’s largest, and most vibrant, city. Head out of the city to the fascinating Cu Chi Tunnels, used by the Viet Cong during the war. 

On day 9 we journey to Ben Tre to discover the Mekong Delta, a rich and fertile region that produces a plethora of rice, coconuts, vegetables and tropical fruit. Today, we’ll taste some of the produce of the area, enjoy traditional music, paddle through the palm-lined canals in a sampan and visit a floating fishing village. 

The next morning we’ll start exploring the Notre Dame Cathedral, the Central Post Office before visiting the Reunification Palace and the chilling War Remnants Museum. This afternoon, we will fly to Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s lovely capital, where we’ll toast our arrival with a cold glass of beer on the riverfront. 

Together, we’ll take to the roads of Phnom Penh by cyclo, before visiting the beautiful Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda, and browsing the artefacts of the National Museum. This afternoon, we’ll learn about Cambodia’s tragic past at the affecting Tuol Sleng Museum and the Killing Fields. 

Fly to Siem Reap, gateway to the temples of Angkor. Travelling in a fleet of tuk-tuks, we’ll explore Angkor Thom, the old walled city of the Khmer Empire, where we’ll see the Bayon and Terrace of the Elephants. As the sun sets, the group will take to boats to float peacefully on the waters of Angkor Thom’s moat. 

Heading back to Angkor, we start amongst the atmospheric ruins of Ta Prohm before exploring the wonders of Angkor Wat. We’ll then travel farther afield to Banteay Srei, a temple famous for its incredibly intricate carvings. What better way to end an adventure-filled day than relaxing in a rooftop bar with a group of fellow travellers and a cocktail? 

On day 14, we visit Tonle Sap Lake. The itinerary here depends on whether it's High Water or Low Water season.

High water season (Aug-Feb): Cruise the waters of Tonle Sap Lake to the floating village of Kampong Kleng, where we’ll meet the community who call it home. Return to Siem Reap via Artisan D’Angkor for a spot of shopping.

Low water season (Mar-Jul): Visiting the floating village of Chong Kneas, where we’ll meet the community who call it home. Return to Siem Reap via Artisan D’Angkor for a spot of shopping.

On your final day, fly to Ireland, arriving home the following day.
