Overview

Journey from the Thai border with Laos to the UNESCO World Heritage Site temples of Angkor on a 14 Day Laos & Cambodia Experience. Embark on a Mekong River cruise from the northwest corner of Laos and drift gently via Pak Beng and the Buddha-filled caves of Pak Ou to Luang Prabang. See the early morning alms ceremony of the Luang Prabang monks, visit the Royal Palace, join a traditional cooking class, and swim in the pools below the stunning Kuang Si Waterfalls. Fly to the quiet Cambodian capital of Vientiane, travel through bustling Phnom Penh, and finish your trip in Siem Reap, gateway to the famous Angkor temples. This independent tour is the perfect balance of in-depth exploration, cultural activities, and city stays with plenty of opportunity to sit back and relax. Combine with time in Thailand or a voyage across Vietnam for a complete Southeast Asian adventure.
