Let Us Plan Your Travel to Vietnam and Cambodia

Two of South East Asia’s most beautifully unique cultures, Vietnam and Cambodia are full of natural wonders, exquisite beaches, sprawling cities, and sublime cuisines mingling with long and diverse histories and some of the world’s most fascinating attractions.

Sail on a red-sailed Vietnamese junk boat to see the iconic, colossal karst pillars rising from the emerald shimmer of Halong Bay and journey along the picturesque Thu Bon River into the old-world charms of Hoi An for some of Vietnam’s best scenery and an introduction to the country’s colorful trading history. Walk the moped-painted streets of Hanoi to peel back its historical layers and marvel at the incredibly diverse cultural history in the French Quarter… before eating Banh Tom in the old quarter’s Dong Xuan market.

Cambodia’s charms are manifold, but where it shines is in its fascinating history told through legendary temple complexes and captivating cities. Unveil it in Phnom Penh’s buzzing streets — sampling Cambodian street food between sights like the Silver Pagoda and the atmospheric Wat Phnom Daun Penh.

Take your time to explore the ceaselessly fascinating temple ruins of Angkor Thom, the last capital of the Khmer Empire, and enjoy a quintessential South East Asia adventure on the white sand beaches of Koh Rong.

Suggested Itineraries for Singapore and Malaysia

Our experts know Vietnam and Cambodia like the back of their hand and have travelled extensively around the country. We have put together some trips and tours to get you inspired.

 

Where to Go

  • 670 x 400 Hanoi

    Hanoi

    Peel back the layers of noise emanating from those iconic Hanoi streets heaving with scooters, and you’ll find layer after layer of French and Chinese colonialism blended with traditional and modern Vietnamese touches, where art galleries and stylish cafes are stirred with street food stalls, stately houses, and ornate pagodas. Journey to the Old Quarter for remnants of the original city wall, its slender streets concealing old workshops, Buddhist temples and shrines, and the French Quarter to walk along leafy boulevards lined with stately mansions, the striking gothic facade of St Joseph Cathedral, and the Neoclassical Hanoi Opera House.

  • 670 x 400 Halong Bay

    Halong Bay

    A World Heritage Site since 1994 and one of South East Asia’s most renowned destinations, Halong Bay’s forested islets, and lofty limestone pillars, rising from those dreamy turquoise waters are recognizable to all. The best way to see it is to bypass nights in Halong City and embark on a luxury overnight cruise for a full itinerary of 5-star amenities with sunloungers posed for the best views of a sunset over those impossibly pretty islands. Stray a little from the usual trail to stay on Ba Island and add a trip to Lan Ha Bay to see a slightly quieter side to the region.

  • 670 x 400 Hoi An

    Hoi An

    Hoi An’s deeply atmospheric riverside is a pleasure, with unwaveringly pretty architecture — the remnants of old traders’ houses — stuffed with hotels, restaurants, and bars. And while it may seem a little touristy, Hoi An has been a haven for overseas traders, sailing up the Thu Bon River from the South China Sea, for millennia. As such Hoi An has a busy and charming old town with distinct aesthetic layers given by the Chinese, Japanese, and French — all enhanced by colorful lanterns and old-world charm. A highlight is the attractive arched 16th-century Japanese covered bridge and trips along the river at night, but the star is the food. Particularly Cao Lau, a local dish that distills the city into a bowl: with noodles influenced by the Japanese and the Chinese, beautiful fresh Vietnamese herbs, and French croutons bequeathed a smoky flavor from cooking over fire.

  • 670 x 400 Temples of Ankor Wat

    Siem Reap

    While Siem Reap is the gateway to the temples of Angkor Wat, the city, with its absorbing art tours, luxury hotels, and eclectic dining is a delight. The after-dark food market is an ideal spot to get lost in local cuisine, but there are spas for post-temple relaxation and Phare: Cambodia’s largest contemporary circus. But the main event will remain the otherworldly beauty of the Angkor Archaeological Park. There, nature dresses temples in vast roots from ancient trees at Ta Prohm and Preah Khan, while The Bayon Temple in the heart of the ancient city of Angkor Thom looks like a mess of stone from afar but quickly morphs into hundreds of giant stone faces carved into imposing towers as you step closer.

  • 670 x 400 Phnom Penh Temples Cambodia

    Phnom Penh

    Cambodia’s resilient capital, Phnom Penh offers up a stunning blend of Parisian boulevards, Khmer temples, and bustling modernity — all of which was almost lost to the Khmer Rouge. But the city, rejuvenated after years of growth is awash with modern cafes, cocktail bars atop luxury hotels, and bustling markets. Visit the riverside promenade in Sisowath Quay for sunset strolls along the Mekong, taking in the views of Wat Ounalom and the glittering spires rising from the Royal Palace, as well as orange-robed student monks relaxing by the water.

  • 670 x 400 Koh Rongs Beaches Cambodia

    Koh Rong

    The Koh Rong archipelago embodies South East Asian island life with lengths of seemingly untouched sandy beaches giving way to cerulean waters, lush jungles, and characterful villages. Beaches are various across the islands, some completely unspoiled (try Lazy Beach on Koh Rong Samloem), with languid white sands shaded by pines perfect for DIY beach days, snorkeling, and unobstructed views, while others, such as Long Set Beach, bustle with restaurants and places to stay. All the usual watersports are available, there’s a dive center on Sunset Beach, and it’s possible to see the magical display of bioluminescent plankton in the less occupied areas of Koh Rong.

 

When to Go

670 x 400 Tam Coc Vietnam

While hosting some significant climate variations, Vietnam and Cambodia are ideal year-round travel destinations, perfectly explorable in every season — with some minor caveats. The largest difference is perhaps in the Monsoon season: from June to October in Cambodia, while in southern Vietnam, it starts as early as May and endures until November. But travelers heading to Vietnam’s central coast (Hoi An, Da Nang, etc) can expect warm and dry conditions for much of June and July.

Travel between Vietnam and Cambodia is a delight year-round, but arguably best between May and June as there are fewer crowds, the humidity is less of a problem, and conditions are drier.
