Gourmet Vietnam & Cambodia

A 17-night trip through Vietnam & Cambodia with some extraordinary culinary experiences and luxury hotels.

This trip begins in the south of Vietnam in Ho Chi Minh City. In this sprawling city your guide will teach you about the country’s dark wartime history and see the mix of skyscrapers and classic French colonial architecture and take you on a street food tour. You’ll also enjoy a full day tour out to the Mekong Delta by speedboat. Fly up to Da Nang and spend 3 nights by the beach in Hoi An with its well-preserved ancient centre, intersected with canals and learn about the city’s melting-pot of history where wooden Chinese shophouses and temples mix with colourful French colonial buildings. Here you’ll learn all about Vietnamese cuisine on a cooking course. Next stop is beautiful Hue, the city that was the seat of Nguyen Dynasty emperors, and here you’ll be taken on a private tour of Hue Citadel, the Forbidden City & Tombs of The Nguyen Dynasty. You’ll fly up to Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam. At its heart is the chaotic Old Quarter, where the narrow streets are roughly arranged by trade and a private full day tour plus a street food tour will showcase the best of the city. Leaving Vietnam behind you will fly down to Cambodia to Siem Reap where you will spend 4 nights. You’ll explore the incredible temples of Angkor Wat, the Bayon and the historical sights around Siem Reap with private dining experiences and night street food tours. Finish in ultimate relaxation on the exclusive Song Saa island before flying home.
