This was our first guided tour and it was great. Hung was a perfect tour guide. He was helpful, informative, amusing and made the trip a truely enjoyable experience. His organisational skills were excellent and the entire group all commented on what a memorable time he has given us.”
Not having travelled to SE Asia before, I think that the tour covered all aspects of a very real Vietnam from Hanoi with its sights and smells and chaotic traffic, to Hoi An with its crafts, markets and it's lanterns that transform the town at night and on to the busy Mekong region and Ho Chih Minh City with its historical influences.
Hung provided excellent commentary with humour and great knowledge. He explained the various battles of many emperors of centuries long gone to the more recent problems of his country and its battles to survive. He gave great insight into the customs and traditions of the ordinary Vietnamese people. He spoke well and gave time to answer many questions. An excellent tour guide.”
All the guides were great! We enjoyed this holiday and thought the hotels, food, guides, and transport utilities were of a high standard. While numbers in our group varied, there were few complaints from anyone.”

Recommended places to visit in Cambodia
Anyone planning a visit to Cambodia will have the incredible ancient temples high on their list but what about Cambodia's other top sights? To help you see more of Cambodia we've put together a list of some of our favourites from royal cities to coastal resorts.
Cambodia’s second biggest city, Battambang is well positioned between Bangkok and Phnom Penh. Teeming with beautiful French colonial architecture the city has more of a large town feel to it than a big smoggy city. As well as the beautiful array of temples, or ‘wats’ the other ‘must do’ activity in this small city is to ride the Bamboo train, or ‘noggy’.
The sleepy little town of Kampot is a haven of peace and tranquillity. It sits along both sides of the Kampot River, the sides of which are lined with quaint cafes and guesthouses. Main features of the town include the Central Market and a number of Buddhist shrines, nestled within caves. The city itself is far from pristine but there is a certain charm that exudes from the crumbling colonial architecture that complements the easy way of life here.
Stick licking its wounds from the scars of 1979, Phnom Penh is a vibrant and bustling city. Sitting amongst 3 rivers; the mighty Mekong, the Bassac and of course the vast Tonle Sap – it is a great stop gap between Saigon and Siem Reap. Visitors can take a relaxing walk along the riverfront, sip a Gn’T in the famous Foreign Correspondents Club or be humbled at the Tuel Sleng Genocide Museum.
Home to the world famous Angkor Wat temples, Siem Reap is the country’s most popular tourist destination. Visitors are recommended to visit the temples early in the morning in order to witness the sun rise over the lily pond, which sits in front of the main temple. The spectacle is second to none and makea for some stunning Kodak moments. After a day of history, Pub Street is the perfect place to unwind with its selections of bars and restaurants.
Not the first beach people think of when planning a Southeast Asia beach break, but Sihanoukville is fast becoming a hip and happening beach resort. Serendipity Beach is very much the young backpacker party zone whereas Otres Beach is the perfect spot for a more relaxed stay offering some excellent boutique accommodation and a quieter and cleaner beachside area.
