11 October

Setting sail from Siem Reap

The town of Siem Reap is a pleasant enough place in its own right, but that's not why so many people flock here; this is the gateway to the sprawling ruins of Angkor, the spectacular seat of the ancient Khmer empire. The temple of Angkor Wat is the most famous, and some might say the most beautiful, of the structures that stand amongst the jungle around Siem Reap. We recommend getting here early in the morning if you can, to avoid the crowds. Other notable sights include the ruined city of Angkor Thom and the eerie temple of Ta Prohm, which has been left more or less as it was found, overgrown with vegetation, the stones gripped by huge tree roots.

Don't miss

Sunrise and sunset at the temples. An early morning will be well rewarded when you see the magical atmosphere the light creates at this time.

Arriving in Ho Chi Minh City

Still often referred to by its old name, Saigon, this is Vietnam's busiest city. Saigon was the capital of the South during the Vietnam War, and American-style capitalism has been embraced more enthusiastically here than in the North, with a clutch of shining skyscrapers standing as testament to Vietnam's surging economic growth. You can learn more about the city's turbulent recent history at the Reunification Palace and the War Remnants Museum, shop for souvenirs at the colourful markets, or take a trip out of the city to the fascinating (and claustrophobic) Cu Chi Tunnels.

Our tip

With an enormous number of motorbikes on the busy streets even crossing the road is an adventure here. Our advice is to be bold and have faith that the traffic will avoid you!

Belmond La Residence d'Angkor, Siem Reap

Where to stay in Siem Reap

La Residence d’Angkor edges in front as our favourite.

Bayon Temple, Cambodia

Touring the temples

A tour of the main sites at Angkor can be squeezed into a day, but take three days to explorer the outer temples and learn more about the medieval world's greatest metropolis.

Park Hyatt Saigon

Where to stay in Saigon

We think the Park Hyatt is a good choice.

Reunification Palace, Ho Chi Minh City

Sightseeing in Saigon

The country’s turbulent past is captured superbly at the Reunification Palace and the War Remnants Museum. A fascinating visit.
