Three Destinations, One Unique Journey

Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam—it would be hard to find three destinations so different. But with B&R’s Indochina Active trip, the three come together beautifully in one unique journey. Siem Reap is our jumping-off point to explore the ancient Khmer temples of Angkor and the overwhelmingly friendly people of Cambodia. Laos, just emerging as a travel destination, offers a UNESCO-protected city, colonial architecture, a Buddhist legacy, and miles and miles of Mekong-side riding. And then there’s Hanoi, Vietnam, where famed winding colonial streets make this city the stuff dreams are made of.

B&R’s newest way to travel! This itinerary is one of our new locally supported, private trips. We've applied the hallmarks that we’re known for to our Southeast Asia luxury travel: great hotels, friendly and talented local guides plus memorable experiences, but it’s just your group and on the dates that work best for you.

Day by Day

We will pick you up at the airport today in a private car and take you to your first hotel. You can spend the rest of the day relaxing in the pool before meeting your local Khmer guide in the early evening for cocktails.

Bike or walk into the heart of the Cambodia countryside to explore the local Khmer temples. Later, head into the magnificent temple of Angkor Wat where our local guide describes this awe-inspiring temple that has defied time and nature for more than 700 years. At nightfall, enjoy dinner at our favourite local restaurant.

Arrive in Bayon by traditional means (elephants!) and explore the temples with our local guide. Traverse the trails of the park lined by a jungle of silk, cotton and strangler fig trees. Spend the afternoon biking, hiking, or visiting the lady temple of Bantei Srei.

Explore the wild jungle temple of Ta Prohm and bike or walk through the park, passing the temples of Angkor Wat, the Elephant Terrace and the gates of Angkor Thom one last time. Take a short flight to Luang Prabang and enjoy a special Lao welcome with a traditional Lao Baci well-wishing ceremony.

Cycle north out of town along side the Mekong. Enjoy a boat ride bound for the nearby Pak Ou cave and cruise down the Mekong. Walk to Vat Xieng Thong, a beautiful temple dating from the 16thC and end at the National Museum in the former Royal Palace, open exclusively for us.

Rise early today to witness 600 saffron-clad monks emerging from morning prayers and silently proceeding through town to collect alms. Head to the multi-tiered cascades of the Tad Kouang Si waterfalls for breakfast and spend the day exploring, shopping, or biking.

This morning head to the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi for a Cyclo ride along tree-lined boulevards, experiencing the city’s historic architecture and the capital’s delightfully chaotic street life. Take a city tour by our favourite local guide.

Wake up early to enjoy one of the cities best kept secrets. The whole city has a grand exercise class around the lake in the morning: Ballroom dance, Aerobics and lots of badminton. Later we’ll take you to the airport for your flight home.

“The Tam local guide in Hoi An was fantastic and Daniel did a wonderful job.  Scootering around Saigon was a blast, as was talking to the farmers and learning about their small plot farms.”
