South East Asia Holidays

Watch the sun rise over the temples of Angkor, sleep aboard a traditional junk boat in Halong Bay, become an elephant caretaker for a day in Laos and top it all off on a castaway tropical island in Thailand.

Our holidays in South East Asia combine Vietnam with Thailand, Cambodia and Laos, helping you get the most out of South East Asia in a short time frame. Of course, you can tweak these holidays to create your ideal Indochina adventure.

Alternatively, you could head to Vietnam on your own completely personal holiday in South East Asia and build your own trip using our bite-sized Vietnam tours, or choose from one of our many holidays in Vietnam. Put together an action-packed trip or something more laid back – it’s completely up to you. Simply give one of our friendly travel specialists a call on 01273 322 041 or request a quote with all of your preferences included.
