Day-to-Day Itinerary : Southeast Asia from Top to Toe

Day 1 Depart the UK

Depart the UK on your overnight flight to Vietnam.

Day 2 -4 Hanoi (Vietnam)

On arrival in Hanoi your private guide and driver will meet you for the short transfer to your hotel. During your stay in Vietnam’s capital you’ll enjoy a comprehensive journey through the historic and cultural heart of the city with your expert local guide. Discover Hanoi’s remarkable Ethnology Museum and the Temple of Literature combined with a more off-beat insider visit to some lesser known nooks and crannies and a cyclo ride back to your hotel.  During your stay you’ll also time embark on a guided street-food tour with a local foodie who will help you to savour and appreciate the best tastes of Vietnam,

Day 5-7 Luang Prabang (Laos)

After a one hour flight from Hanoi you’ll arrive in Luang Prabang where your Laos guide and driver will greet you and take you to check in at your hotel.

Mysterious, and evocative of a bygone age, Luang Prabang is a picturesque and historic town surrounded by a backdrop of mountains and river gorges. You’ll get to experience the charm first hand with your guide either on foot or using bicycles to explore. Highlights include watching the early morning procession of saffron robed monks who weave through the streets to collect alms, a river journey to the quirky Pak Ou Cave and a visit to the turquoise pools of the Kuang Sii Waterfalls. Your guided tour will be tailored to suit you with plenty of time factored in to relax and simply soak up the magical atmosphere of this sleepy but wonderful city.

Days 8-11 Siem Reap & Angkor (Cambodia)

Another short local flight will take you south to Siem Reap, the gateway to The Temples of Angkor, one of Southeast Asia’s most incredible landmarks.

Your Cambodian guide and driver will meet you on arrival and transfer you to your hotel then you’ll have the choice of free time to relax or a sunset visit to one of the quieter Angkor temples.

Excluding your arrival day, you’ll have 3 full days here. You’ll enjoy a dawn visit to Angkor Wat itself, we recommend beginning the tour before it even gets light to dodge the crowds and see this marvellous structure in a fairy-tale like scene, but the day is flexible and you can visit later if you prefer. Other highlights include the ancient royal city of Angkor Thom and the forest clad Ta Prohm amongst other less well-known temples. Our tours here are carefully timed and constructed to ensure you get the most out of your visit and enjoy some relaxation time too. Beyond the temples, Siem Reap has some lovely restaurants to enjoy and you’ll also have chance to visit the villages on the lake of Tonle Sap.

 Day 12-14 Bangkok (Thailand)

The flight from Siem Reap to Bangkok takes under an hour and on arrival your guide and driver will be waiting to whizz you into the energetic Thai capital. This urban city is a melting pot of contrasts; from the seemingly lawless traffic on the roads to the languid long-tail boats along the river.  During your stay you’ll get a glimpse of traditional local-life as you travel with your guide deep into the cities (klongs) canals, to the picturesque flower markets and to the landmark temple Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn).  Local lunches and relaxation time are factored in to ensure you’re well rested in time for activities like an evening food tour of Chinatown that takes in a variety of delicious local dishes in an array of different locations.

To contrast with the traditional side of Bangkok and its rural surrounds, you’ll spend the last evening in the city enjoying a cocktail at one of the more modern rooftop bars with panoramic views of the whole city.

Day 15-17 Penang (Malaysia)

Another quick flight takes you south to Malaysia and to the island of Penang. The mix of colonial and indigenous architecture varied street food and thriving art scene make for a charming and rewarding destination.

There will be two full days exploring Penang, a treasure trove of architecture, artisans and delicious food. A cycle tour of rural parts of the island is included as is a guided tour of Georgetown that will give you a sense of the cities heritage and the fascinating history of the island. 

Day 18 & 19 Singapore

Hop down from Penang to Singapore by flight for your final stop in Southeast Asia. Singapore is arguably the most modern of the cities you’ve visited and is the perfect place to end the holiday and get a full picture of the regions variety.

During your stay you’ll spend a full day exploring with your guide and driver. Take a cruise along the Singapore River, visit the Botanical gardens with their beautiful orchids, learn to slurp Singapore noodles with your guide and last but not least  you can’t leave Singapore without sampling a Singapore Sling at Raffles Hotel.

Day 20 Fly Home

Depart Singapore for your overnight flight back to the UK. Alternatively this holiday can be changed to fit your personal requirements, whether it’s to omit a country you’ve visited before or to extend your stay in the others, call us on 0207 924 7133 to discuss.

Customer Feedback
Our guides in Yangon, Bagan, and Kalaw / Lake Inle were wonderful. They struck the right balance of explaining the history and importance of the sights we were seeing without over-doing it, they knew where to get the best view/experience at what time and could rearrange experiences so we got the most out of them.
