Impressions of Laos & Cambodia

Departs Bangkok 6 April 2011 • 15 days • £1645 ex. flights.
Laos and Cambodia are two of the most atmospheric and photogenic countries in South East Asia, and this tour is a fantastic way to explore the best of what they have to offer, whilst learning about the art of travel photography with a professional travel photographer. Starting in Bangkok, we head to Vientiane, the sleepy capital of Laos, before driving north to the stunning scenery of Vang Vieng and the enigmatic Plain of Jars. We arrive in the historic town of Luang Prabang for the Lao New Year festivities: a time of processions, religious rituals and water fights! After a few days enjoying the festivities and exploring what must be the best preserved town in Asia, we fly to Siem Reap in Cambodia (included flight) to explore the incomparable ruins of Angkor Wat. We have plenty of time here to explore many of the outlying sites in the complex before the tour finishes. More information on:
