Vietnam & Cambodia: a magical combination in Southeast Asia. Vietnam is as charming and picturesque as the first time we visited here more than a decade ago. More importantly, the people remain the same: gracious, warm, and infinitely inviting. Explore this region with bike rides past perfectly kept rice paddies in central Vietnam. Then, enjoy the vibrant culture of Cambodia and the famous temple of Angkor Wat, visiting these marvels of the ancient world by foot and by bike. There is an abundance of history to learn here and to top it all off, the jungle scenery is straight from a picture book.
