This exciting adventure takes us through three countries with divergent histories and strikingly different cultures. Journey from the frenetic streets of Saigon to the tranquillity of rural Cambodia and visit the magnificent shimmering palaces and temples of Bangkok. Pass through a spectacular patchwork of waterways in the Mekong Delta, take a cyclo (rickshaw) tour of Phnom Penh and relax on a tropical island with white sand beaches before arriving at the magnificent temple complex of Angkor, which we explore by bicycle to escape the crowds. We end our adventure in bustling Bangkok, sampling the street food delights and admiring an enormous reclining golden Buddha.An action-packed journey across Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand

Itinerary

Flight Inclusive

Day 1 Depart London

Depart London

Day 2 Arrive Saigon

Arrive in the heat, hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh City, still usually known as Saigon! It is an exciting and absorbing city where scooters pack the streets and temples stand defiantly alongside modern developments. Devastated by the Vietnam War, it is now a bustling free market city where anything goes. Our hotel is in the heart of this incredible city. A welcome group meeting will be held later in the afternoon with your leader followed by an optional group dinner after the meeting. *Huong Sen Hotel or similar*

Day 3 Visit Cu Chi Tunnels used by Viet Cong during the war; free afternoon; markets within walking distance of the hotel

Depart early to beat the traffic as we head out to visit the Cu Chi tunnels, located 2 hours outside of the city. Used by the Viet Cong during the war the network covers 3 levels and approximately 240km of tunnels. Exploring Cu Chi gives us an indication of the tenacity of the Vietnamese people and the conditions that both Vietnamese and American troops had to endure. Originally the tunnels were very narrow but some areas have been widened to allow visitors to explore the system. We are able to crawl through the tunnels and are introduced to life below ground as we visit make-shift kitchens, bedrooms and even an underground hospital. Claustrophobes may prefer to stay outside in the sunshine! The afternoon is free for exploration and there are a number of interesting things to do and see - the Saigon River, Ben Thanh Market, Reunification Palace and Notre Dame Cathedral are all within easy walking distance. There is also time to visit the War Remnants Museum with an interesting (if a little gruesome) photographic record of the Vietnam/American War. *Huong Sen Hotel or similar*

Day 4 Transfer to the Mekong Delta; pass through fruit orchards en route to overnight homestay on island

This morning we leave the busy city for the rice bowl of Vietnam – the Mekong Delta. We’ll be struck by the fertility of the land and how every piece of land is used for producing food - fruit, vegetables, rice, fish farms, duck farms - there is cottage industry everywhere all fuelled by the amazing network of waterways. We visit the interesting Cai Be floating market and see some of the local industry taking place. Recently, Cai Be floating market is becoming less crowded and smaller as fruit trading is mostly now done by trucks due to the bridge being built. However, this is still a great opportunity to see a local market and the trade being conducted traditionally on a smaller scale. A short boat ride takes us from Vinh Long to our island homestay. The evening is tranquil as we have dinner at the homestay and enjoy some 'Delta' hospitality. We spend the night sleeping at a simple guesthouse built in the style of a local house. Bedding, a mosquito net and a small towel are provided. We will have the chance to try some local dishes cooked by our hosts for the night. *Mekong Guest House Homestay or similar*

Day 5 Journey to Chau Doc in the foothills of Sam Mountain

After breakfast at the homestay we transfer by boat back to Vinh Long then to Cai Rang floating market, one of the biggest in the delta; the colour and fragrance of the market is sure to be remembered! We then continue on to Chau Doc; close to Cambodia, it is an important trading town due to its border position. The town is in the foothills of the picturesque Sam Mountain. An optional trip to the mountain provides wonderful views of the Mekong Delta and Cambodia. *Chau Pho Hotel or similar*

Day 6 Cross border into Cambodia; overnight sleepy seaside town of Kep

After breakfast we leave Chau Doc for the Xa Xia / Ha Tien border where we see a change of pace as we cross into rural Cambodia. We travel along coastal roads lined with coconut palms until we arrive in the quiet seaside town of Kep in the early afternoon. (Approx. transfer time excluding immigration process is around 3- 3.5 hours.) Kep was a resort town for Cambodia’s elite until the 1960s. The town still bears the scars of civil war with the ghost-like remains of old villas. A steep climb up Kep Mountain into the National Park provides a great location for watching the sunset. After some time to relax you might like to enjoy fresh seafood at the local crab market. Sit down on a mat at one of the sea-front shacks and take your pick of the day’s catch. *Kep Bay Hotel & Resort or similar*

Day 7 Full day boat trip to tropical Koh Tonsai Island or relax on Kep beach

Today we jump on a local boat for the short trip to Koh Tonsai (Rabbit Island). Palm tree fringed with a small beach this is the perfect place to enjoy swimming in the warm water or relax on the sand. If the weather is not suitable for the boat trip we will venture out into the countryside surrounding Kep to see local rice fields, pepper plantations and the famous Phnom Chhnork caves. Alternatively, you may wish to spend the day relaxing on Kep beach. *Kep Bay Hotel & Resort or similar*

Day 8 Head to Phnom Penh; cyclo (rickshaw) tour of capital city; dinner at local restaurant

This morning, if we didn’t do it yesterday, we will journey to the countryside surrounding Kep to see rural Cambodia. In the afternoon we travel from our seaside home to the Capital of Cambodia, Phnom Penh. To get our bearings in this interesting city on the confluence of the Mekong, Tonle Sap and Tonle Bassac Rivers we take a sunset cyclo (bicycle rickshaw) trip. We finish with dinner at a restaurant run by the Friends organisation that provides hospitality training and other programs to support former street children and youths (closed on school and public holidays). *Ohana Hotel or similar*

Day 9 Visit Royal Palace complex in Phnom Penh; free time or optionals include National Museum and the Killing Fields

This morning we visit the Royal Palace grounds and Silver Pagoda; named after the 5000 silver tiles weighing more than 1 kg each it is one of the most holy temples in Cambodia and is home to an impressive collection of gold, diamonds and other precious stones along with many traditional musical instruments. Afterwards the rest of the day is free for your family to explore. Some family friendly options are to visit the local markets or public gardens which your leader can provide details about. Close by is also the National Museum, which is set in a traditional Khmer building and displays a range of ancient artefacts as well as more modern pieces and where kids can feed the fish! Adults in the group may also want to confront Cambodia’s recent tragic past with a visit to Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, a former school which served as a Khmer Rouge torture centre but may not be suitable for the younger family members to visit. Your group leader will be available to make recommendations and assist you with your bookings and how best to spend your free time in the city. *Ohana Hotel or similar*

Day 10 Transfer to Siem Reap; pause to sample local delicacies; sunset viewing of Angkor temples

Travel by private air-conditioned bus (approx. 7 hours) to Siem Reap. A great opportunity to look at the real Cambodia, we'll make several stops at points of interest along the way. We also see the cottage industry at Santuk Silk Farm, a fair trade organisation, which is a valuable source of employment in a poor rural community (Santuk is closed on some important Khmer holidays). We'll also stop off at Sambor Prei Kuk, Cambodia's most impressive group of pre-Angkorian monuments with some of the oldest structures in the country. Afterwards, we will have a traditional Khmer lunch at a community restaurant before continuing our journey to Siem Reap. The small town of Siem Reap is the gateway to the World Heritage temples of Angkor. Get a sneak preview with sunset at the temples.  *Angkor Holiday Hotel or similar*

Day 11 Cycle ride around Angkor temples; easy flat trails with option of opting out and taking moto-rickshaw

This morning we leave early and take a fun bike ride around the Angkorian ruins. It is an easy ride on flat trails and roads but for non-cyclists there is the option to jump on to a local remork - motor-rickshaw. The ride today is approximately 20 km in total. On the bicycle, we can avoid some of the crowds and get a unique perspective on this amazing site which is well known more recently from being featured in the Lara Croft: Tomb Raider film. We take the back roads along the river through local villages and into the Angkor park before cycling along the wall of the ancient city of Angkor Thom. With the moat on one side and thick jungle on the other we will rarely see another visitor. We might also like to stop to see the monkeys that gather on the temple ruins along the way. We finish our day with a visit to Angkor Wat one of the most architecturally and photographically impressive sites in the temple complex.  Tonight we will visit the 'Phare' the Cambodian Circus. Coming from vulnerable households, the performers have gained international recognition through their art practice. Like a Cambodian Cirque Du Soleil, modern Khmer tales mix theatre, music, dance, acrobatics, juggling, aerial acts, and contortion appeal to all ages! *Angkor Holiday Hotel or similar*

Day 12 Free day in Siem Reap; choose to visit floating village of Tonle Sap, a conservation centre or zip-line over the jungle canopy

Today is a free day for exploration and your group leader will be able to make suggestions and can organise transport for activities. If you didn’t manage to fit it in yesterday then you might like to visit the jungle temple of Ta Prohm where some of the filming for Tomb Raider took place (Angkor pass required). Another option would be to take a journey into the countryside. Around 1 hour out of town is the Angkor Centre for Conservation of Biodiversity (ACCB) which is housed at the base of Kbal Spien Moutain near the River of a Thousand Lingas. ACCB has a collection of animals that have been saved from trafficking. Creatures include gibbons, monkeys, anteaters, snakes, greater and lesser adjutant (Cambodia’s version of big bird), eagles, prehistoric water monitors and turtles. Pass through rural villages on the way where you can enjoy sampling sugar palm candy as it is made. On the way back to town you might like to stop to visit the exquisite Banteay Srey (“Citadel of the women”) (Angkor pass required). The small temple displays some of the finest examples of classical Khmer art carved into the pinkish coloured sandstone. For those who would like a more active day there is the option of trying ziplining in the nearby canopy of Angkor Park. Flying through the jungle after climbing up from one of the canopy platforms is a real adrenaline rush! There is also the choice of visiting the floating village on nearby Tonle Sap Lake. *Angkor Holiday Hotel or similar*

Day 13 Drive to Bangkok; journey broken with stops at stone carving village and a garden restaurant for lunch

It's a long drive from Siem Reap to Bangkok (approx. 10 hours including stops for border crossing and lunch) but we break the journey many times along the way to stop at local points of interest. On the way we stop at the stone carving village where many of the inhabitants carve religious and decorative statues of all sizes from sandstone and marble. Ganesh the elephant-headed God of beginnings and wisdom as well as Buddhist and Angkorian-style statues line the road in this town. After the border crossing we take a break and have our first taste of Thai food at a local restaurant before continuing onto the capital of Bangkok. Famous for its tuk tuks, khlong boats and incredible street food, Bangkok is an assault on the senses and provides a real contrast to sleepy Cambodia. *Rembrandt Hotel or similar*

Day 14 Morning tour of Bangkok including the Grand Palace and Wat Pho

This morning a short walk from our hotel takes us to the Chao Phraya River where we meet a longtail boat to journey along the khlongs (canals) of old Bangkok. Please be advised there may be a possibility of larger groups being accommodated in a bigger boat. Afterwards we pay a visit to Wat Pho, home to the country's largest reclining Buddha and keeper of the magic behind Thai massage. In the afternoon we have free time to explore. Why not pay a visit to the magnificent Grand Palace and the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, wander down to the tourist mecca of Khao San Road, take in some retail therapy, enjoy delicious street food or explore Bangkok’s colourful Chinatown. *Rembrandt Hotel or similar*

We have just returned from a two week adventure with our three sons aged
20,18 and 13. I can honestly say that our holiday exceeded our expectations.
Our boys have all said that it’s the best holiday they have had .We
experienced three very different countries and learnt so much. Our tour
leader In Vietnam, Tam , was calm and organised and fed us infomation as we
went along in a knowledgeable and personal way. Chheang in Cambodia was fab
too and we were lucky enough to meet her lovely kids whose English was
impeccable ! Hugh and Ant were also full of personality and good humour.
We were fortunate enough to share our experience with a great group of adults
and young people.
Personally the homestay on the Mekong Delta was my highlight .The Killing
Fields was harrowing .
Learning more about the Vietnam War and visiting the tunnels was a humbling
experience.
We were exhausted but exhilarated . The organisation was seamless throughout
.
Homestay at Mekong Delta was an amazing experience.


All the leaders were friendly and knowledgeable . They told the history of
their country in a personal and engaging way.


Bring US dollars as needed for Cambodia border .
Sports gear/running tops comfortable for humid conditions.

It felt like a month's worth of holiday in 2 weeks! The one other family were
lovely- making it a real pleasure to travel together. The children really all
got on well and that really made life easy! We would not have managed to see
and do so much in 2 weeks if we had traveled independently- our guides (Tam
in Vietnam) and Dyka (Cambodia and Thailand) were both knowledgeable and
helpful and coped with our noise well!! The whole trip was as expected- apart
form the VERY long drive form Siem Reap to Bangkok (much longer than
anticipated due to Thai traffic). Apart form this one thing the bus was
reliable and comfortable and everything was organised in a family-friendly
and timely fashion. It really felt like our Guides did all the hard work and
we just got to have the fun. We have some truly amazing memories and I think
our children will talk about it for years (hopefully!).
Everything along the Mekong Delta... the different boats, the local guide who
knew everything, the Homestay and the food.


They were both patient and amazing.


Pack light- you will repack lots! Use local laundry facilities. Wifi was
everywhere so tablets for long journies and cards/uno/ dobble etc are good
for the longer bus rides.


We now have a list of places we want to revisit. The only day that felt like
it was time wasted was the long journey to Thailand- consider flying that
part!!

Have just returned from this adventure, and feel compelled to write...the trip was one of the most fantastic, memorable experiences we have enjoyed as a family. We feel deeply privileged to have visited all 3 countries and meet the people, Cambodia in particular, and Exodus should be congratulated on delivering a hectic but manageable itinerary, with exemplary organisation, and guides who really helped us connect with the people, culture and surroundings. We were also impressed with the ethical choices made for excursions.
Our favourite day was Ankor Wat by mountain bike, but we were particularly struck by the warm, gentle nature of the Cambodian people throughout our time there.

Kim was absolutely fantastic - a wonderful person and great ambassador for his country and culture. Ant in Bangkok and Nuan in Vietnam both deserve mention.

I was introduced to Antarctica in the most amazing way. When we arrived there
was a blanket of heavy fog the team got us on the zodiac and navigated on
compass bearings. Suddenly like the curtain of a stage being pulled back we
sat in sky of blue surrounded by a wild and pristine environment.
See above. Watching whales breech. Smelling penguins before you could see
them. Filming Leopard seals with my gopro. You truely need to be awake 24hrs
a day and have eyes in the back of your head for this trip.


Shelly and the team were amazing. Their passion and commitment and tirless
effort to show what they love and care about the most was amazing


Do take European travel plugs for Ushuaia as well as American.


Enjoy everything this trip has to offer. Remember this is an expedition and
not a five star hotel as some travellers on my trip thought. Things can go
wrong and weather is unpredictable. A real once in a lifetime trip.

start to finish with awesome scenery and wildlife experiences throughout on a
fantastic ship.
Experiencing the beauty of both Oraca's and Humpback whales upclose to to
zodiacs and a brillient night spent camping on the Ice of Antartctica.


Woody was excellent from start to finish, extremely knowledgeable and
passionate about Antarctica, friendly, open and worked brilliantly with
the Ships Captain/Crew to get us lots of fantastic landings and cruising
opportunities. He was ably assisted by the rest of his expedition crew who
were all also fantastic.


Go... A definite must do atleast once in your life. Antarctica is awesome.


Although some people might conside this type of trip as being expensive,
I'd qualify it by saying this was my second trip to Antarctica and
althought it is not a cheap holiday it is great value for money, I
wouldn't have returned otherwise.The Ship is fantastic, food was
excellent and all the crew were so friendly, helpful and ofcourse
knowledgeable.

A holiday that exceeded all expectations. Stunning scenery, abundant
wildlife, a great team and a superb boat and crew
Seeing that being a penguin parent is true dedication!


"Blessed are the flexible for they shall not be bent out of
shape....." A quote from a member of the group that sums up Woody.
Excellent does also.


Book it NOW!


I knew we'd see a lot of wildlife and had hoped I'd see an albatross
- there were 6 gliding around the boat on the first day! The excesses just
got greater each dayafter that!

Meals Included:

Dinner: 13 breakfasts, 1 lunch and 2 dinners are included.    The food on this trip is a real highlight for many. Southeast Asian cuisine is known for its abundance of freshly prepared dishes with strong aromatic flavours. There is a focus on herbs and citrus to ensure each dish packs a punch; chilli does feature highly too but is easily avoided if desired.   Food is cheap in all three countries and Western food is readily available almost everywhere, with the exception of the night in the Mekong Delta. Breakfasts are usually buffet style and there is plenty to choose from; fruit, bread, cereal/yoghurt (sometimes) and cooked breakfasts. You should allow at least GBP 10 - 20/USD 12-25 per day per person for lunch and dinner. You can eat out very cheaply, but if you go to the more expensive restaurants most of the time, you will spend more than the suggested amount.   Vegetarian food is widely available, however the offering will be fairly similar in most places within each country. Please advise at time of booking if you have any dietary requirements. Please note that the availability of certain products is minimal or non-existent, for example wheat or dairy-free, please be prepared for this and you may need to bring these from home.
