Join us as we explore some of the most intriguing and unforgettable places these former French colonies have to offer. The journey begins in the picturesque town of Luang Prabang where we explore its exquisite golden temples, the Kuang Sii waterfalls and the Pak Ou Caves. We venture off the beaten track to Laos' most mysterious archaeological site - the Plain of Jars, before continuing to the sleepy capital of Vientiane. Venturing south we discover the lush wild beauty of Tadlo, the traditional village life on Dong Kong Island and the mighty Mekong River. After visiting the Khone Phapheng waterfall (South East Asia's biggest waterfall) we continue onto Cambodia overland, arriving in its capital Phnom Penh. Here we explore the Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda and are reminded of Cambodia's war torn past as we visit the notorious Killing Fields of Choeung Ek. In contrast, Siem Reap boasts the glorious Angkor Wat complex of Khmer temples, pagodas, terraces and palaces where we delight in the exploration of this awe-inspiring place.
