For those who want to explore Indochina, there’s no better way to go about it than by booking a tour with Newmarket Holidays. You can discover and explore the capital of Thailand – one of the world’s most vibrant, thriving cities – before heading off to beautiful Cambodia, where you’ll get to visit Phnom Penh and see the citadel of Angkor Thom.
The tour begins with a flight to Bangkok. When you land, you’ll be driven to your hotel, where you will stay for a total of three nights. After settling in and having a bite to eat, you will be taken on a guided tour of the capital, visiting famous sites, such as Royal Island, where you will find the beautiful temples Wat Pho and Wat Phra Kaeo. In the evening, there will be a ‘Thai Dinner and Dance’ excursion, arranged by Newmarket Holidays.
The following day, you and your travel companions can opt to either explore the rest of the city at your own pace, or take part in an optional trip, through the city’s surrounding countryside. On the fourth day, there will be a visit to Damnoen Saduak, where the floating markets are located, and later in the afternoon you will be taken along to the stunning Rose Gardens. At this point, you can choose to head back to your hotel or take an optional cruise on the Khlong canal.
Day five of the tour will start off with an early morning trip to the Battambang, a beautiful Cambodian city that is surrounded by rivers and picturesque hilltop temples. Upon arrival, you’ll be served a lovely meal, after which you can rest and relax for the rest of the evening.
Day six of this tour will be one of the most memorable, with a trip on one of South East Asia’s Great Lakes, Tonlé Sap. During your boat ride, you will pass villages held up by stilts, as well as the colourful, bustling market town Siem Reap, until you eventually reach the Angkor Thom complex. The day will be rounded off with a traditional Cambodian dinner, after which you will be brought back to your hotel.
