I thoroughly enjoyed this trip - it was better than my expectations, which were very high!
Thailand is only visited very briefly, but I felt like we saw the best of Laos, a beautiful country with mainly unspoiled countryside. The countryside seen from the slow boat along the Mekong and the karst scenery at Vang Vieng is some of the most beautiful scenery anywhere!
Cambodia is also incredible, a country emerging from its tragic recent past but with so much to see. The temples at Angkor definitely deserve their status as 8th wonder of the world!
These are countries to visit now before tourism changes them drastically in the future. I'd imagine that Laos in another 10 years time will be completely changed….
This was a fantastic holiday - my first with Exodus. The itinerary had been thoroughly thought through. There was the right amount of time at each location, the standard of accommodation exceeded my expectations and I would recommend this holiday to all who are flexible, adventurous and understand that these countries are not as sophisticated as UK but that's all part of the expierence. I will certainly be having holidays with Exodus in the future.
An excellent, interesting and very varied trip, which included the bustling madness of Bangkok, the relaxing slow boat along the Mekong Delta, the charming calm of Luang Prabang, the wonderful mountainous scenery in Vang Vieng the "backpackers party town", the vibrant exciting Phnoh Penh with its very moving history and of course one of the main wonders of the world Angkor Wat.
A great experience but take warm clothes if travelling in winter months!
This trip offers a fantastic introduction to Laos and Cambodia, but only spends a short time in Thailand. It is fast paced so not for those preferring a more leisurely experience!
We are sorry that Julia found the boat trip to be overly cold; we have taken her group’s feedback on board and have adjusted the trip notes accordingly. We are glad that she found Nat and Sami to be great leaders, but we regret that she was disappointed by some of her other leaders and by the journey from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap; we would like to assure her that we have taken her feedback on board.
We realise that every holiday destination is also
someone else's home and that we should leave places as we found them. Find out
