Win a trip to Cambodia & Vietnam
Cambodia and Vietnam make quite a double act. Both have incredible cultural richness, frenetic-yet-fun cities and welcoming people. Both, too, have endured traumatic recent events – but emerged more dynamic than ever. Their similarities are fascinating but each has its own particular treasures, from Cambodia’s matchless temples and aromatic amok trey catfish dish to Vietnam’s UNESCO-listed town of Hoi An and fragrant pho soup.
To plan the ideal itinerary, it helps to have expert guidance – and Rickshaw Travel provides enriching trips to 24 destinations across Asia, Latin America and Africa, focusing on unusual destinations, characterful accommodation and cultural immersion. You get to travel independently and worry-free: all trains, buses and ferries are booked in advance and you get your tickets on arrival. And this level of expert planning has gone into Rickshaw Travel’s two-week Vietnam & Cambodia trip – which you could win...
Getting to Indochina from the UK is a cinch. Vietnam Airlines, the national carrier of Vietnam, flies direct four times a week from London Gatwick – two flights to Hanoi, two to Saigon. From July, Vietnam Airlines will introduce a state-of-the-art 787-900 series aircraft on the route. From Vietnam, the must-see temples of Angkor are a short flight away.
But Cambodia has more to offer than its headline site. Stay in a stilted house with a local Khmer family and head out to fish on Tonle Sap Lake, or take a tuk-tuk tour to local projects, combined with visits to temples few travellers see. And you can’t leave without mastering amok (banana leaves) at a Cambodian cooking class.
The most atmospheric way to get from Cambodia to Vietnam is by Mekong River boat, buying fruit from a floating market en route. It’s a languid way to travel – unlike touring Ho Chi Minh City’s streetfood stalls on the back of a Vespa: this thrill is the best way to uncover the city’s secrets. The pace slows again in Hue, where you can help tend the rice fields, and in Hoi An, where you can watch as hundreds of red lanterns light up the night from your riverside hotel – another heady, authentic experience to soak up on your diverse South-East Asian journey.
