Our journey commenced with a tour of Vietnam, from Ho Chi Minh City in the south to the breathtaking landscapes of Halong Bay, as well as the faded glory of old Hanoi.
From Laos we flew, via Bangkok, to Siem Reap in Cambodia, the base from which we explored one of the wonders of the world - the impressive Hindu temple complex of Angkor.
The next part of the tour took us to what we consider to be the highlight of the entire trip, Laos.
We started in the capital, Vientiane before moving on to the incredibly colourful Luang Prabang
where we had an sail up the Mekong River to visit the Pak Ou Caves.
Cambodia was next, and the city of Siem Reap became our base for visiting the Temples of Angkor,
ancient capital of the Khmer Empire from the 9th to 12th Century and once the size of London.
