Honeymoon Quick-fix: Indochina

Honeymoon Quick-fix: Indochina

Your 60-second guide to planning a honeymoon in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos

Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos are individually fascinating - but also combine well to make some marvellous bigger itineraries.

The top 2 week trip:

Vietnam - Cambodia - Laos

A classic Indochina route would start in Hanoi, run down the coast of Vietnam, up through Cambodia and into Laos, in anything from ten days to three weeks (or more).

But don't just stick to the beaten track! For something truly unique, swing among the canopy at northern Laos' Gibbon Experience (www.gibbonexperience.org), where zip-wires connect the teetering treehouses.  

Real honeymooners:

Christian and Sarah Ball travelled with Asia specialists Bamboo Travel. Their trip included Saigon, Phu Quoc Island, Hanoi, Halong Bay, Luang Prabang, Muang La, Nong Khiaw and finished at the luxury hideaway resort of Paradee on Ko Samet.

Here's what they had to say:

"We had always dreamt of Indochina for our honeymoon, and Bamboo Travel were brilliant when it came to selecting the best places to visit. The trip was packed with so many amazing experiences it is hard to single out our favourites, but the Halong Bay cruise on our exclusive private junk boat, the Muang La Resort in northern Loas and the Paradee on Koh Samet were all up there."

Getting there and when to go:

Vietnam Airlines flies UK-Vietnam (www.VietnamAir.co.uk); flight time around 12hrs. No direct flights from UK to Laos/Cambodia; Bangkok is the best gateway.

Visitable year round, but Cambodia best (but busiest) Dec-Feb; Laos best Nov-Feb; Vietnam best Oct-Apr (dry season)

Bamboo Travel have vast experience in designing a broad range of bespoke tours in the region - check out the trips they have on offer in our handy Honeymoon Finder, or visit www.bambootravel.co.uk to discuss their tailormade options.
