BEAUTY OF VIETNAM AND CAMBODIA
Price starting at 78999

Overview

Astonishingly exotic and utterly compelling, Vietnam is a country of breath-taking natural beauty with a unique heritage, where travel quickly becomes addictive. Ho Chi Minh is approximately 8 hrs flight from Delhi. Unforgettable experiences are everywhere in Vietnam. Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) is Vietnam at its most dizzying: a high-octane city of commerce and culture that has driven the country forward with its pulsating energy. A chaotic whirl, the city breathes life and vitality into all who settle here, and visitors cannot help but be hauled along for the ride. Ascend to the realm of the gods, Angkor Wat. Descend into hell at Tuol Sleng Prison. With a history both inspiring and depressing, Cambodia delivers an intoxicating present. Just as Angkor is more than its wat, so too is Cambodia more than its temples, and its urban areas can surprise with their sophistication. Chaotic yet charismatic capital Phnom Penh is a revitalized city earning plaudits for its gorgeous riverside location, cultural renaissance, and world-class wining-and-dining scene. Second city Siem Reap, with cosmopolitan cafes and a diverse nightlife, is as much a destination as the nearby iconic Angkor temples. Enjoy the fun – filled 7 days in Vietnam and Cambodia with our “Beauty of Vietnam and Cambodia” package.

Its complexity was beyond imagination containing meeting rooms, kitchens, wells, clinics, schools, depots, trenches and emergency exits all aimed for guerrilla warfare. The tunnels were deep and strong enough to withstand destructive bombings and self-contained enough to outlast prolonged sieges.
