Is this trip right for you:
  • A 34-day trip with a lot of public transport might feel a little taxing now and then. There are some long stretches of travel involved, so be prepared for some bumpy roads (and occasional delays). It's all part of the adventure!
  • We cover a lot of distance on this trip, including on overnight trains. Accommodation and amenities are shared and basic, but the experience of rubbing shoulders with the locals makes it all worthwhile. For more about what this experience is like, see our blog post here: https://www.intrepidtravel.com/adventures/what-to-expect-on-an-overnight.
  • If you're prone to motion sickness, some over-the-counter medication is a good idea for some of the windy drives (such as from Hue to Hoi An, and Luang Prabang to Vientiane via Vang Vieng).
  • In the larger cities, roads can be hectic and intimidating to cross, especially in Vietnam. Never fear – your leader will show you how to do it like a local in Hanoi's Old Quarter.
  • Accommodation is basic – a combination of simple hotels, guesthouses and homestays.
  • You'll be spending a night with a local family on this trip. While the accommodation is shared and basic, this is a great opportunity to connect with the local people (and enjoy delicious home-cooked meals!). Read more about the experience here: https://www.intrepidtravel.com/adventures/cambodia-homestay-experience
  • This trip is for travellers who appreciate a bit of independence. You'll get plenty of free time in each location to make your own choices and do your own activities. Your leader is always there to give you tips and suggestions.
