1. Tag: Bangkok

Sa-wat dee! Welcome to Thailand. Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 6 pm where you will meet your tour leader and fellow travellers. If you arrive before this important meeting, why not take a riverboat to Chinatown and explore the crowded streets, uncover the magnificent Grand Palace and the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, wander down the tourist mecca of Khao San Road, or indulge in some Thai massage? There is plenty to keep you occupied in this exciting city.

Special Information: It’s very important that you attend the welcome meeting as we will be collecting insurance details and next of kin information at this time. If you are going to be late please let your travel agent or hotel reception know. Ask reception or look for a note in the lobby for more information on where the meeting will take place. If you do wish to spend some more time in Bangkok, we’ll be happy to organise additional accommodation for you (subject to availability).

Optional Activities:
Bangkok - Grand Palace - THB500
Bangkok - Wat Pho - THB200
Bangkok - Thai Massage - THB250
Bangkok - Jim Thompson's House - THB150

Unterkunft: Standard-Hotel

2. Tag: Siem Reap

Prepare for a long day of travel as we cross Thailand and enter Cambodia. You’ll want to load up on snacks and reading material for the 10-hour private minibus ride to Siem Reap. This travel time includes time spent at the border crossings and a stop for lunch. Your leader will assist with the border procedures. Keep in mind, if you are planning on getting your visa at the border, you will need cash in US dollars and a passport photo. Enjoy a free evening upon arrival. You may want to head to Pub Street to grab a bite to eat and sample the city’s nightlife. Otherwise, rest up in preparation for tomorrow’s visit to Angkor Wat.

Fahrzeit: ca. 10 Std.

Unterkunft: Gästehaus

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück

3. Tag: Siem Reap - Angkor Wat

Today you'll visit the world-famous Angkor complex with your guide. The ruins are scattered over an area of some 160 square kilometres; this is the biggest religious monument in the world. However, the main cluster of temples is close to Siem Reap, so you'll have plenty of time to fully appreciate the great archaeological sites of Angkor Wat (the astounding main attraction), Bayon (a marvel of many sculpted decorations) and Ta Prohm (the eerily beautiful temples covered in jungle).

Special Information: A single-day Angkor Pass is included on this tour. If you'd like to return to Angkor outside of your included visit, you can buy a longer pass. Just ask your leader.

Optional Activities:
Siem Reap - Three day Angkor Pass - USD62

Enthaltene Aktivitäten:
Siem Reap - 1 day Angkor Pass
Siem Reap - Angkor Temples Guided Tour

Unterkunft: Gästehaus

4. Tag: Siem Reap

Enjoy free time in Siem Reap today. If you feel like some adventure, you can take the optional Angkor zip-line course, which gives you a birds-eye view of the rainforest, plus an adrenaline rush. Other options here include a visit to the sobering Landmine Museum – it's located a little further afield but is well worth the journey. There is also the Siem Reap Street Food by Night Urban Adventure, a three-hour tour which allows you to taste the many flavours of the city and feel the buzz of the local markets.

Optional Activities:
Siem Reap - Angkor Zipline - USD129
Siem Reap - Landmine Museum - USD5
Siem Reap - Full day remork transport to Angkor complex - USD20
Siem Reap - Urban Adventure Cambodian Cook-Out - USD52
Siem Reap - Rehash Trash Recycling Rubbish Workshop - USD8

Unterkunft: Gästehaus

5. Tag: Kampong Cham

Travel by public bus to Kampong Cham (approximately 5 hours). This peaceful town was once an important trading hub and is now a great opportunity to experience life in small-town Cambodia. A great option here is to visit the serene 11th-century Wat Nokor. You can also hire a bicycle to explore the rural island of Koh Paen, which is linked to Kampong Cham by an elaborate bamboo bridge (it's passable only in the dry season, take a ferry in the wet). The locals here make their living fishing, growing tobacco and sesame so it's a good place to go for a closer look at some of Cambodia's cottage industries. A little further afield are the twin 'mountain temples' of Phnom Pros and Phnom Srei.

Optional Activities:
Kompong Cham - Wat Nokor - USD1
Kompong Cham - Bicycle hire - USD2
Kompong Cham - Phnom Pros and Phnom Srei - USD10

Fahrzeit: ca. 5 Std.

Unterkunft: Standard-Hotel

6. Tag: Chambok

Travel by private vehicle (approx. 5 hours) into rural Cambodia to the region of Kampong Speu and the village of Chambok. There's a lot of natural beauty to discover here, and the Chambok community is renowned for its ecotourism. A member of the Chambok community will take you on a village walk and be happy to chat about their community’s history, lifestyle and local ecotourism projects. Meet the families your group will spend the night with and settle into your homestay accommodation. You may like to trek to a stunning waterfall this afternoon. It’s a 60-90min trek and access is weather dependant. In the evening, head to the community centre to enjoy a traditional Khmer dinner prepared by women from the community. You'll also be treated to a traditional dance performance.

Special Information: We stay in one room in multishare homestay accommodation. Depending on the group size, we may use two homes that are located close to each other. There will be a thin mattress on the floor, pillow, mosquito net and towel for each traveller. Bathroom facilities will be shared and will often consist of a squat toilet and cold water washing area.

Optional Activities:
Chambok - Waterfall hike - USD3

Enthaltene Aktivitäten:
Chambok - Traditional Dancing
Chambok - Homestay and activities

Unterkunft: Gastfamilie

Verpflegung: 1x Abendessen

7. Tag: Kampot

Take a private bus to Kampot (about 3 hours), one of Cambodia's most attractive old towns. Famous for its pepper, Kampot supplied most French restaurants with this vital spice for many years during colonial rule. Today, the region is more renowned for its plantations of durian, a spiky, pungent fruit that incites either adoration or sheer loathing. Try it if you dare! In free time, you might choose to stroll along the riverside and observe the French colonial architecture, or have a cup of coffee on the veranda of one of the riverside restaurants and admire the view of Bokor Mountain Range.

Fahrzeit: ca. 3 Std.

Unterkunft: Gästehaus

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück

8. Tag: Kampot

Enjoy a free day in this chilled-out town. For a unique photo opportunity, head to the roundabout in the centre of the town, where a giant durian statue sits smack in the middle. Perhaps browse for goodies at the covered market. The nearby countryside is also a delight to explore – amongst fields of Kampot pepper and rice, there’s also a salt field and a limestone cave with a small 7th-century brick temple inside called Phnom Chhnork. A traditional massage is also highly recommended.

Unterkunft: Gästehaus

9. Tag: Phnom Penh

Travel by private vehicle to the capital city of Phnom Penh (about 4 hours). Cambodia's capital is set on a major junction of the Mekong and Tonle Sap rivers and boasts some fine examples of French-inspired architecture. Perhaps spend your free afternoon visiting the Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda. Wat Phnom, shrouded in myth, is equally worth a visit, as is the National Museum with its excellent Khmer collection. Cyclo tours around the city are a great alternative to walking and generally include Psar Thmei (Central Market), US Embassy, Wat Phnom, Mekong riverfront, Independence Monument and Royal Palace. Keen shoppers can hit the art-deco Psar Thmei (Central Market).

Optional Activities:
Phnom Penh - Royal Palace & Silver Pagoda - USD10
Phnom Penh - Wat Phnom - USD2
Phnom Penh - National Museum - USD10
Phnom Penh - Cyclo tour - USD4
Phnom Penh - Traditional Khmer massage - USD8

Fahrzeit: ca. 4 Std.

Unterkunft: Standard-Hotel

10. Tag: Phnom Penh

Today includes a guided tour of the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum (S21), a former school which served as a Khmer Rouge torture centre. It's estimated that more than 20,000 people were held and tortured here. You will also head out to the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek, where a stupa made up of some 8,000 human skulls marks the site of the infamous Killing Fields, the execution ground for the torture victims of Tuol Sleng. If you would prefer not to participate in these visits, please let your leader know.

The afternoon is free for you to explore further. If you're looking to relax, the Seeing Hands massage parlours are some of the best in the city, and all patronage supports the visually impaired masseurs whose years of expertise may be just what you need today.

Optional Activities:
Phnom Penh - Khmer massage - USD8

Enthaltene Aktivitäten:
Phnom Penh - Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum (S21)
Phnom Penh - Killing Fields of Choeung Ek

Unterkunft: Standard-Hotel

11. Tag: Ho Chi Minh City

Travel by local bus from Phnom Penh to Ho Chi Minh City (approximately 10 hours including border crossings and lunch). Your leader will again assist you with border crossing procedures. Get out and discover Ho Chi Minh City's blend of old and new, East and West, when you arrive. Be sure to sample a baguette or some of the excellent coffee on offer – both markers of the city's strong French influence.

Fahrzeit: ca. 10 Std.

Unterkunft: Standard-Hotel

12. Tag: Ho Chi Minh City

Good morning from Ho Chi Minh City! The day is yours to do as you please, so feel free to wander around the bustling Ben Thanh markets, or book yourself in to head out to the historic Cu Chi Tunnels – a series of tiny underground walkways used by the Viet Cong. Better yet, why not book into an Urban Adventure, like Cyclos & Markets, where you’ll check out some food and flower markets and pass by the city’s highlights from the seat of a cyclo. Urban Adventures also offers a Cu Chi Experience too, so visit urbanadventures.com/destination/ho-chi-minh-city-tours for more info. Keep in mind that there’s another group meeting scheduled for tonight, usually around 6 pm, where you’ll meet you a new and improved travel crew for the next stage of your South East Asian adventure.

Special Information: As this is a combination trip, the travellers in your group and your group leader are likely to change today. There will be a welcome meeting tonight to discuss the next stage of your itinerary and meet travellers joining you. It’s important that you attend the meeting as your new leader will be collecting insurance details and next of kin information. Ask reception or look for a note in the lobby for more information on where the meeting will take place.
Please note that today, you may be required to move to a different hotel in Ho Chi Minh City to begin the next section of your combination trip. Your leader will let you know if this is the case and will help with the transfer.

Optional Activities:
Ho Chi Minh City - Cu Chi Tunnel Experience Urban Adventure - USD43
Ho Chi Minh City - Ho Chi Minh Discovery Urban Adventure - USD53

Unterkunft: Standard-Hotel

13. Tag: Mekong Delta

This morning, head away from the city, and make your way to the province of Ben Tre, where you’ll get on a boat to tour the canals of the Mekong Delta. This fertile area is famous for its abundance of fruit, flower and rice crops, and is known as ‘the rice bowl’ of Vietnam. During your boat ride you’ll visit some local cottage industries and then head to your local guesthouse. Staying in simple local accommodation close to the Delta and hosted by a Vietnamese family will be one of the highlights of your trip as you get a taste of the life of a local and enjoy a traditional home-cooked meal.

Special Information: Facilities at the guesthouse are basic and can vary as we stay with several different families. We sleep on camp beds in a communal room for all members of the group. Bedding and mosquito nets are provided. Your guesthouse will be located near the Mekong, but may not be on the banks of the river itself.

Enthaltene Aktivitäten:
Mekong Delta - Boat cruise and guesthouse

Unterkunft: Gastfamilie

Verpflegung: 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

14. Tag: Mekong Delta - Nachtzug nach Danang

Rising early to the sounds of the delta coming alive, enjoy a simple breakfast before boarding the boat back down the Delta and catching a bus back to Ho Chi Minh City. Enjoy some free time in Ho Chi Minh City this afternoon, perhaps with a visit to the War Remnants Museum or Reunification Palace. If you haven’t already, head to Ben Thanh Market for some delicious street food, colourful shopping and even more colourful characters. This evening, board an overnight train bound for Danang. Trains are a common form of transport for the Vietnamese, so sit back and relax into this local experience.

Special Information: There are shared day use hotel rooms available this afternoon if you would like to freshen up before the overnight train. There is one room provided between up to 6 members of the group. Single supplements do not apply to day use rooms.
Sleeper trains typically have four or six berth compartments with bench seats that convert into sleeping bunks. A sheet, pillow and blanket are provided, although some travellers prefer to bring their own sleeping sheet. Depending on the configuration of the group, you may have to share with people of different genders or passengers who aren’t part of the group. Your leader will coordinate and give further information on the trip. Most trains have a dining carriage serving simple food, but we recommend that you stock up on snacks and drinks before departure.
Shared day rooms are available at a Ho Chi Minh City hotel, so you can freshen up and prepare, if needed, for your train journey. These day rooms may be shared by up to six members of the group.

Optional Activities:
Ho Chi Minh City - Reunification Palace - VND40000
Ho Chi Minh City - War Remnants Museum - VND40000

Unterkunft: Nachtzug

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück

Arrive in Danang by train and travel by minibus for approximately 1 hour to Hoi An. Hoi An was recently declared a UNESCO World Heritage site and is being beautifully restored. It was a major trading port with the west from the 17th century onwards. Today, parts of Hoi An look exactly as they did more than a century ago. Your leader will take you on a sightseeing walk through the Old Town and visit some of the city's major attractions. A sightseeing pass is included in your tour for you to visit a selection of the major sights as you wish. Hoi An is also a shopping mecca, so head down to the markets and street stalls to browse paintings, woodwork, ceramics and lanterns. It is famous for its tailors who can make beautiful items to order, and with almost three full days here, you have the chance to get some beautiful things made.

Optional Activities:

Enthaltene Aktivitäten:

Unterkunft: Standard-Hotel

16. Tag: Hoi An

Wake up to a free morning to do as you please. This morning is a great opportunity to take a trip out to the My Son temples – a World Heritage-listed site constructed between the 4th and the 14th centuries that reflects the rich cultural traditions of the Cham civilisation. In the afternoon, swap walking for cycling with a bike ride through the countryside near Hoi An. There's no better way to explore the peaceful area than by bike. You’ll see places few tourists get the chance to see among green rice paddies and small creeks, which will give you a true insight into rural life in Vietnam.

Special Information: As bicycle helmets aren't a legal requirement in Vietnam, it's possible that helmets won't be available for today's included activity. If you would like to be guaranteed of a helmet, we recommend you bring one with you. We are working with our local operators to ensure helmets are available in the future.

You’ve got another day to explore this historic haven. Perhaps book in your final tailoring fitting this morning to make sure the threads you’re getting made fit like a glove, or hire a bike for a lazy ride out to the South China Sea to laze on An Bang or Cua Dai beach. Hoi An is also known for its great food, so you could book yourself in to a cooking class to take some culinary secrets away with you. Most tours include a trip to the local food markets, and some take you on a short boat journey along the Thu Bon River. Best of all, it’s up to you, so just relax and let your mind do the wandering.

Optional Activities:

Hoi An - Hoi An Walking & Cooking Class Urban Adventure - USD49

Bid farewell to Hoi An this morning and make your way to Hue. The drive in a private vehicle will take around 5 hours. You’ll be travelling on the incredible Hai Van Pass, through lush mountains and past scenic lookouts, and there’ll be some good places for a photo stop. Once in Hue, you’ll have a free afternoon to explore. Hue was once Vietnam’s imperial capital and has a curious mix of bustling streets and tranquil enclaves. Perhaps visit the Dong Ba Market, which sells everything imaginable and is a great place to spend some time. It’s important to know that Hue is renowned for its cuisine, with some delicious dishes originating from this region, including bun bo hue (Hue’s delicious take on pho), and banh khoai (a filled turmeric crepe). Time to give your tastebuds a workout.

Optional Activities:
Hue - Hue Royal Street Eats by Cyclo Urban Adventure - Free

Unterkunft: Standard-Hotel

19. Tag: Hue - Nachtzug nach Hanoi

Enjoy a free day in Hue. Perhaps visit the Imperial Citadel which includes the Forbidden Purple City that was almost totally destroyed during the Vietnam War. The gaping holes left by bombs give you an idea of how much destruction occurred in this country. Another optional activity is a dragon boat cruise along the Perfume River and then a visit to Thien Mu Pagoda – the unofficial symbol of Hue. Here you’ll see an active Buddhist monastery dating back to 1601 and a car belonging to a monk who set himself alight in protest against the treatment of Buddhists. You may also like to visit one of the royal tombs, that of Emperor Tu Duc, with its central lake set amid a grove of frangipani and pine trees.

Arrive in Hanoi at about 5 am and transfer to your hotel. Once you’ve dropped off your bags and freshened up, embark on a walking tour of Vietnam’s charming capital. Explore the 36 streets of Hanoi’s Old Quarter – locally known as this because of each street originally selling a specific type of product. Continue on to the Dong Xuan Market and Hoan Kiem Lake, making sure you check out the unique architecture along the way. Hanoi has a French provincial feel remaining from its colonial times, but it also has a Buddhist influence and striking modern buildings. The rest of the day is yours to explore Hanoi as you please. In the evening, why not get your group together and head out to a bustling night market for some local fare. Sitting on plastic stools and eating on the roadside is a rite of passage in Vietnam.

22. Tag: Hanoi

This morning, have an opportunity to take in more of the Vietnamese highlands on a 10 kilometre (6.2 mi) trek from Sung Village to Da Bia. The first 8km of the trek is mostly flat ground along well-worn buffalo tracks. The final 2km gradually inclines and for a period of approximately 300m there are some steps to climb, however the walk will be a steady relaxed pace. Keep an eye peeled for the monumental stone at the peak of Da Bia Mountain during the hike that takes us through the local villages, meeting people from the ethnic Muong tribe along the way. Stop for lunch at Da Bia before enjoying a scenic 1.5 hour boat cruise on Hoa Binh hydropower reservoir. Arrive at Thung Nai then board a bus transfer to Hanoi (approximately 2 hours). Arrive in Hanoi at around 6 pm. This evening is free for you to explore this delightful city. Why not relax with a bia hoi (freshly brewed draught beer) at one of the microbars in the Old Quarter?

Special Information: Comfortable supportive footwear (running shoes) will be suitable however you are welcome to bring hiking boots if you prefer. It can be quite slippery if there has been recent rain. The homestay hosts can provide bamboo trekking poles on request. Please ensure you have a 1.5 litre water bottle with you for the trek; we will fill bottles at Sung Village and there are no refill points along the way until we have concluded the trek.
Should you wish to skip the 10 kilometre (6.2mi) trek, a taxi can be arranged locally for approximately USD70.

Located in the greater Halong Bay area, Lan Ha Bay is one of Vietnam’s most scenic places, where limestone islands and caves rise from the emerald waters.

Weniger Inklusivleistungen, dafür mehr Zeit für eigene Interessen - und das zu einem unschlagbar günstigen Preis.

Die Unterkünfte sind einfach, aber sauber und zentral gelegen. Meistens wird in landestypischen Gästehäusern und günstigen Hotels übernachtet, die zentral gelegen sind. Manchmal haben die Unterkünfte Gemeinschaftsbäder oder es wird in einem Schlafsaal mit mehreren, anderen Mitreisenden geschlafen. Ein besonderes Erlebnis ist der Aufenthalt in einer Gastfamilie. Mit den Einheimischen kochen, essen, spielen oder einfach das Leben vor Ort kennenzulernen - während unserer Homestays erhältst du einen authentischen Blick hinter die Kulissen. In vielen Regionen leben die Menschen noch in sehr traditionellen Behausungen und dies greifen wir auch bei unseren Reisen auf. Auf einigen Touren wird auch in malerischer Umgebung gecampt.

Als Transportmittel werden überwiegend öffentliche Verkehrsmittel genutzt. Die Vielfalt reicht von Tuk Tuks, über Rikschas bis hin zum Kamel. Das schont nicht nur die Umwelt, sondern garantiert auch jede Menge Spaß und Kontakt mit den Einheimischen.
