Vietnam and Cambodia

15 nights from £2,059 per person

Selected departures to November 2014 and January to April 2015

The overwhelming image retained by visitors to Vietnam is that of a country blessed with an extraordinary beauty. It’s a mosaic of mist-shrouded mountains, vibrant green rainforest, a patch-work of rice paddies and pristine white beaches interspaced with stunning lagoons, whilst its villages, towns and cities are custodians of the relics and monuments of a unique 2,000 year old civilisation.

Therefore this holiday may not be suitable for clients of greatly impaired mobility. In the tropics temperatures and humidity levels will also be quite high for most of the year.
