GALLERY

17 days with a large variety of sites, cities, cultures and landscapes… You will discover three countries next to each other, with similarities: religion and most of traditions. Nevertheless, between Thailand plains, Laotian mountains and the Tonle Sap basin in Cambodia, one notes some differences… The climate for instance that can vary from plains to mountains.

Historical ruins can also vary between Thailand and Cambodia (The site of Sukhothai is namely not comparable to the one of Angkor). Civil architecture can also vary. French presence in Indochina let its mark. It is not the case in Thailand that was never occupied. However, French architectural patterns are much visible in Luang Prabang.

You will go up Thailand from Bangkok to Ayutthaya, passing by Sukhothai, cradle of Thailand identity. Afterwards, you will discover Northern cities such as Chiang Mai, that still conserves parts of its walls, like Chiangsaen, settled on the banks of Mekong river. You will then pass to Laos and cruise down Mekong River during 2 days towards the enchanting city of Luang Prabang. You will end the journey in Siem Reap to discover the unique site of the ruins of the Ancient capital of the Khmer Kingdom, Angkor.

You will travel at a slow pace, so that you have time to discover sites included in the program without any rush. No early departures or late arrival at your hotel. Accommodation standards range from 4 to 5 stars’ hotels, with international style facilities. The tour is provided with full board, land transportation by A/C coaches and local flights.

Our expert local guides are carefully selected and our high quality services are granted by 40 years of unbreakable reputation
