Your Destinations —
Cambodia has remained hidden from the outside world for much of the last century, but now emerging from years of isolation and becoming increasingly popular on the traveller's trail. The fascinating country offers a true taste of Southeast Asia before the arrival of tourism and modernisation. It has a diverse landscape from dusty hot cities and mountainous jungles to beautifully calm bays and pristine beaches. At the turn of the millennium Siem Reap was a Cambodian provincial town with few facilities, minor surfaced roads and little in the way of nightlife. Now it is a major tourist hub due to its proximity to the world famous temples of Angkor (UNESCO World Heritage Site).
Year on year Vietnam is becoming a more popular holiday destination as people start to discover all that this beautiful and fascinating country has to offer. The attraction of a holiday to Vietnam is evident when you consider its unique cultural and historical heritage set in an unspoilt, diverse and engaging landscape. Whilst Vietnam is an extraordinary country to explore, an increasing number of tourists are going simply to relax; with over 3,000km of coastline, stunning white sand beaches and a number of deluxe 5-star resorts.
There has never been a better time to go on a Vietnam holiday than now, as the country with a fascinating past warmly embraces its future as a major player among international tourist destinations. When visiting Vietnam you will discover a country that offers something for every holidaymaker. From the charms of Hanoi to the hectic city life found in Ho-Chi-Minh City (Saigon), a Vietnam holiday offers something for everyone, making it a truly unequalled travel experience.
