BACKPACKING Indochina (Apr 8-15, 2017) *Holy Week

Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam

Travel Factor takes you to a classic! Get ready for a week of adventure as we take you to the heartlands of Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.

The journey begins at iconic Khao San Road in Bangkok, the backpacker’s home base in Southeast Asia. Bangkok offers great places for shopping at bargain prices and a list of mouthwatering street food choices. The next stop of the trip takes you to Cambodia, where the mystical Angkor Wat can be found. Make your way to the temples where you can spend your day imitating those Lara Croft poses or simply marveling the many faces of Buddha at the Bayon Temple. Cambodia’s sordid past is also a point of interest in the journey as we take time to understand the Khmer Rouge’s Killing Fields. Finally, the trip concludes at Ho Chi Minh City, where visitors will learn how the clever Vietnamese literally built underground communities while fighting a war. Don’t forget that the food in Vietnam is a trip in itself. Sample the fabulous banh mi and pho and you will surely get to gastronomic highs!

With all these activities and a whole lot more, who could think this can all happen in just a week?
