Section Title

If we can briefly say what it is about on the mighty Mekong River, this tour certainly ticks all the must-see attractions we want you to see. This combined trip of Vietnam, Thailand, Laos and Cambodia introduces their authentic life and vibrant culture in remote and secluded lands that are not easily accessible. However, it doesn't mean that you'll lose the chance to see many other spectacular wonders of the world that own a worldwide reputation, such as the extraordinary Angkor Wat or UNESCO-protected Luang Prabang. Your journey also includes visiting the bustling metropolis of Bangkok with temple visits and street food tours. Cover the capital Phnom Penh with a look back to the cruelty of Pot’s Khmer Rouge regime, and finish up with a short visit to Ho Chi Minh City, formerly called "the Pearl of the Far East".
