2022 Season

Vietnam & Cambodia: A Grand Adventure with Bangkok & Chiang Mai


tour: OVE6
19 Day Tour from Ho Chi Minh City to Chiang Mai
What’s the most important thing to bring on a journey to Vietnam and Cambodia? Your bargaining skills! The art of haggling is a must at the bustling markets of Hanoi, Siem Reap, and Ho Chi Minh City where you can negotiate everything from luxurious silk to colorful ceramics to a tasty bowl of pho. The number one rule of thumb—always be willing to walk away. Luckily, there’s so much to walk toward on this colorful tour of Southeast Asia, including the fascinating wartime tunnels of Cu Chi, a fishing lesson on the Thu Bon River, and a breezy city cyclo ride around vibrant Hanoi. The picturesque pagodas of Hue and Hanoi are just a taste of what’s to come at the mystical temples of Angkor. Inside the “City of the God Kings,” you’ll find the architecturally magnificent ruins of Angkor Wat delightfully much more than you bargained for. Balance the high energy of Bangkok with the calming force of Chiang Mai by adding this dual city Monograms extension to your Southeast Asia tour. In Bangkok, you’ll cruise through its famous klongs, visit its calming Buddhist temples, and experience its vibrant city life. Then fly to Chiang Mai. Only reached by river or elephant trek until the 1920s, this ancient walled city in the picturesque Himalaya foothills still holds its remote charm – as well as more than 30 opulent temples.
Each Globus Asia tour is limited to an average of just 20 guests per departure. There’s always room to roam with extra space between you and other travelers—while still getting up close and personal to the experiences you’ve been dreaming of. Small-Group Discoveries include all the features of a traditional Globus escorted tour, complete with expert Tour Director, Driver, and Local Guides who ensure that your health and safety is our top priority. A Small-Group Discovery Asia vacation is the perfectly sized tour—without the crowds.
