Your 10-day Monograms vacation in Southeast Asia includes private guided sightseeing, a Local Host® in each city, private airport transfers and ground transportation, and superior accommodations. You’ll begin in Hanoi, Vietnam, with guided sightseeing and a cyclo ride through the ancient Old Quarter where merchants trade as they have for centuries. Visit Ho Chi Minh’s humble cottage, as well as the mausoleum, One Pillar Pagoda, the Presidential Palace, and the 900-year-old Temple of Literature. Embark on a cruise on stunning Ha Long Bay, with its 3,000 limestone islands carved by time into spectacular landscapes rising from the Gulf of Tonkin. Savor traditional Vietnamese cuisine on this overnight cruise and visit spectacular caves, tunnels, and pristine beaches. Rise early the next morning for a Tai Chi demonstration on board.

Fly to Ho Chi Minh City to explore the city’s many famed landmarks, including the War Remnants Museum and the bustling Ben Thanh Market. Take an excursion to the Cu Chi tunnels—an extraordinary network of passageways used by the Viet Cong during the war. Fly to Siem Reap, Cambodia, and visit the largest temple complex in the world—incomparable Angkor Wat. See the Bayon Temple at Angkor Thom with some 200 faces carved in 54 towers. Visit the red sandstone temple honoring the Hindu god Shiva at Banteay Srei, and venture on to Ta Prohm—virtually untouched and wrapped in ancient tree roots around its ruins. This taste of Vietnam and Cambodia is a feast for the eyes, mind, and body!
