Highlights

  • Vietnam: With many picturesque landscapes, golden sand beaches and breathtaking mountains, Vietnam is considered one of the most attractive destinations of Southeast Asia. Explore amazing cuisine, unique culture and stunning architecture from North to South, from quaint Hanoi, exotic Sa Pa to ancient Hoi An, beautiful Nha Trang and many other destinations.
  • Laos: The attractions of Laos are Vientiane, the national capital and Luang Prabang, the ancient capital. Experience some off-the-beaten-track islands such as Don Khong, Don Khon and Don Det.
    Vientiane, Laos’ national capital, mixes French-colonial architecture with Buddhist temples.
  • Cambodia: If Cambodia is not on your bucket list, then it should be! Immerse yourself in spectacular Angkor Wat, one of the Seven Wonders of the World and cruise to Phnom Penh and Siem Reap.
    Thailand: You can find everything in Thailand, from the bustling capital Bangkok, peaceful Chiang Mai, historic Ayutthaya to beautiful beaches such as Phuket, Pattaya and Ko Samui. Thai people are famous for their friendliness and generosity.
  • Myanmar: Myanmar (or Burma) is well-known for its Buddhist architecture in Yangon, Bagan and Mandalay. Refresh your soul in stunning pagodas and monasteries, enjoy amazing food and explore local life.

 

Tips

  • Pay attention to the weather before traveling. North and central Vietnam have four seasons per year while Laos and Cambodia have only two seasons (dry season and rainy season).
  • Prepare cash: There are many ATMs in tourist places, but in the provinces you will have to pay in cash.
  • Be prepared for humidity: wear appropriate clothing and bring extra water.
  • Don’t forget sun protection items: umbrella, hat, sunscreen and sunglasses. Hot and humid weather in Vietnam will cause sunburn.
  • Dress appropriately when visiting a religious site: always keep a shawl or long-sleeved clothing in your bag, as you may be refused entry or offended if you are not properly covered.

Fantastic experience

Great experience overall. Alex was very helpful to us. He even sent us our boarding pass for the domestic flights. He made our stay in Vietnam & Cambodia a very memorable one. I highly recommend using Alex @ IDC travel. He organised a 14 day trip for us to Vietnam and Cambodia. Everything worked like clock work. Our tours picked us up on time. He was very accomodating to us during our stay in Vietnam. Thank you once again Alex. We will definitely use IDC if we were to come back to Vietnam.

We had a wonderful experience dealing with IDC Travel (Alex). Our trip was designed exactly as we requested with accommodation in perfect locations, all tour guides and transport were reliable and on time, and very friendly and professional. Alex was amazing and was available to answer all questions and concerns prior to our trip, as well as being on hand for us throughout our trip. Being single females travelling to a foreign country where we didn't speak the language, knowing help was on hand was greatly appreciated. Thank you Alex for the outstanding service and for making our trip perfect, enjoyable and hassle-free. I will definitely recommend IDC Travel.

Especially our guide Duy in Saigon, he was extra good with small children. He kept us updated with the typhoon in September as well, our plans nearly got disrupted by it. All in all highly recommended.

This trip was above my expectations. Alex did an outstanding job of organizing everything perfectly. It was so interesting and I loved every minute. Excellent knowledgeable guides. Seamless travel, wonderful accommodation and unforgettable experiences. I learned so much. Highly recommended!  

The term “Indochina” was first applied to the area that the French colonized in the middle of the 19th century; in 1887, it was referred to as a “federation of colonial protectorates” and included what is now Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam. Thailand has always been independent, while Myanmar, formerly Burma, was ruled by the British. Therefore, an Indochina circuit can include up to five nations.

Before the French took control of the Southeast Asian peninsula known as Indochina, European traders and missionaries had established contacts with Asia. The French established Hanoi as their capital, and there are still many reminders of their presence there. Indochina tours packages will always include visits to Hanoi’s architectural wonders. While there are still signs of the former French presence in all of the Indochina cities, it is also obvious that they have transformed into true Asian cities with distinctive and significant cultures and religions.

 

The best time to visit Indochina is between November and February. The weather is drier, less humid and slightly cooler in most of the region, with average temperatures around 30°C. However, plan a warm jacket for the evenings. The rainy season in Indochina is between June and October, which means flooding in the Mekong Delta, but you can see lush rice paddies in Cambodia and Vietnam. If you don’t mind the occasional downpour, the monsoon season is often the best time of year to visit Indochina and avail of great rates on flights and accommodation.

 

Quality over quantity should definitely become your mantra. Although there is no point in spinning from country to country checking off temples as you go, it is possible to do a short two-week or even nine-day circuit that allows you to understand where you are. and what you are going through. There are also three or four week tours that will allow you to discover the region in greater depth and leave you wanting to come back.
