38 Day Thailand, Cambodia, & Vietnam Group Tour From $5,999

Meet fellow travellers and submerge yourself in South East Asian culture with this 38 Day Tour of South East Asia.

Boat trips, beach parties on tropical islands, snorkeling, picturesque landscapes, cooking classes, and many more awesome experiences. Lodging in hostels, huts, resorts, home stays, and guesthouses. It does not matter if you are a first-time solo traveler or traveling with friends, if you are traveling for the first or hundredth time, this is the perfect trip if you are looking for an unforgettable adventure.

Start off in Thailand, one of the most popular backpacking destinations, especially for first-time solo travelers. Your trip will take you from Bangkok via the famous Khao Sok National Park, Koh Phangan, and Phi Phi Islands to Phuket. From there, you’ll fly up to see the natural and cultural phenomena of Chiang Mai and get to experience Thailand’s most sacred animal, the elephant, in its native habitat. As you will find yourself reminiscing about the incredible experiences you had in Thailand, you will be on your way to your next destination: Vietnam’s capital Hanoi. After you have explored the city by rickshaw and foot, you will find yourself on a boat overnight to the jaw dropping Ha Long Bay and biking in the countryside of Ninh Binh. Soon after, you will be learning from locals in Hoi An how to crab fish and make lanterns. Ho Chi Minh City and Mekong Delta will be your last stops in Vietnam, to take a final deep dive into Vietnam’s gripping culture and history. Before you know it, you will find yourself on the bus to Cambodia’s capital, Phnom Penh where you will exchange the rickshaw for a tuk tuk to explore the city. After you have also had the opportunity to learn about Cambodia’s dark, captivating history, you will head on to Kampot. In Kampot you will find yourself kayaking between palm trees and as the city is known worldwide for its exquisite pepper, a pepper plantation will be part of your time here. Just a few days after, you will find yourself in paradise on the island Koh Rong Sanloem where beautiful beaches and snorkel spots are waiting for you. Your last stop will be in Siem Reap where you will get to visit the floating villages and see the world famous Angkor Wat. In Siem Reap your epic 38 Day South East Asia Tour will come to an end – countless memories, a bunch of new friends, and three countries ticked off your bucket list.
