Especially at night, you’ll get tickets to watch the Quintessence of Tokin Show in 1 hour that tells the history and art of the Red River Delta area. The excellent performances bring Hanoi’s village life, folklore, poetry, music, water puppetry, etc., on the stage. What’s more, get your opportunities to eat Hanoi Food and drink the Hanoi Fresh Beer.
Halong Bay Overnight Cruise
On the next two days, let’s drive to Halong Bay – a UNESCO World Heritage Site recognized for emerald sea, limestone towers, and exotic islets, mysterious caves of stalagmites and stalactites, and poetic fishing villages. Halong Bay Overnight Cruise is a sure thing to include in the itinerary so that you can completely feel how captivating the legendary Bay is during the daytime and night. After embarking a luxurious junk, you’ll begin a sightseeing cruise tour to Bai Tu Long Bay, Thien Canh Son, Hon Co Island, and then Vung Vieng Fishing Village.
The morning time onboard is pleasant with Tai Chi practice, majestic sunrise view, relaxing tea or coffee, and more. Also, get new experiences in the onboard comfort and open sundeck. The overnight cruise is what you need to make your voyage more special and different from the whistle-stop sightseeing trip. The natural highlights of the “Bay of Descending Dragon” have been being filmed by tourist worldwide, and its beauty is absolutely guaranteed. Halong is a right destination for the Rest and Relaxation vacation, away from the city dusk and traffic jam.
Luang Prabang UNESCO World Heritage
Saying goodbye to the enthralling Halong Bay, it’s scheduled to drive back to Hanoi for the flight to Luang Prabang UNESCO World Heritage in Laos. On this 5th day tour, get up early for the drive to Ban Xang Hai, and then experience the 30-minute elephant riding. Next, let’s proceed to Ban Pak Ou and take a boat trip to the enigmatic Pak Ou Caves that enshrines numerous lacquered statues of Buddha. After the wildlife tours will be plenty of time to get around the charming Luang Prabang. The must-see tourist attractions are the Royal Palace Museum, Wat Xieng Thong, and Traditional Art and Ethnology Center.
On the 6th day of the Indochina Package Tour 10 days, do yourself a favor by waking up as the sun rises in order to join the Laos Alms Giving ceremony, and then visit a local market in the morning. Nature in Laos is so intact and beautiful that makes Laos Wildlife Tours the strong magnets. Just get yourself immersed into Nature at Kuang Si Waterfall which remains spectacular, fresh, and picturesque. The waterfall spot is ideal for swimming, having a picnic, trekking, and taking pictures. What’s more, expect to meet the Hmong and the Khmu hill-tribe villages who are friendly to guests. The known villages are TaladPhosy, Ban Na Oune, and Ban Tha Pane. There will be time for discovering the hill-tribe markets of the Hmong to find their handmade silver items and embroideries. The 10-day Indochina Tour Itinerary recommends another half-day program in Luang Prabang Laos that you explore Pha Tad Ke Botanical Garden before the departure flight to Siem Reap.
So now, you are in Siem Reap. Get ready for the full discovery of Angkor Temples. The first religious monument included in the Angkor Archaeological Park should be Angkor Thom – the last and the oldest capital of the Khmer Empire built at the end of the 12th century by King Jayavarman VII. Next, make your trip go on excitingly to the hidden Bayon Temple, the impressive Terrace of the Leper King, and the “lost” Ta Prohm. And last but not least, the 8th day of the package should victoriously end at the “Mother of all temples” – the Angkor Wat. To further excite the Khmer-like experiences, try foot massages and eat Khmer food in the Angkor Night Market.
The 9th day of the itinerary will direct you to the off-the-beaten-track Kampong Khleang Floating Village, around 55km east of Siem Reap. There, you find the Khmer’s stilted houses, their fishing techniques, beautiful rural landscapes, and the friendly residents. After the happy mingling time with the Khmer people, circle back to the city, and on the route, there is a special site you must see, which is Banteay Srei – a unique and fantastic temple constructed from the pink sandstone with the elaborated carving. On the next day, or the last day of the itinerary to Vietnam Laos and Cambodia, just farewell Siem Reap, see it next time, and be ready for the flight home.
In each of the tourist attractions mentioned in the 10-day packages, make sure you bring the full-charged cameras to capture as many photos as possible. They will be the valuable “trophies” to show friends and others that you did spend more than one week in the three Indochina countries, far from home, but be happy, safe, and pleasant.
