exciting ideas on exploring Laos and Cambodia.

Laos and Cambodia gives you
a glimpse of old Asia.

Tranquil Laos, nestled between Thailand and Vietnam, is a welcome haven for travelers seeking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of Southeast Asia. Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s capital, lies along the banks of the Mekong River and is a door to rural village life.



Cruise slowly down the Mekong River and see how people live rurally. Discover the lesser visited Southern Laos to see river dolphin in the Awerwaddy and explore the 4000 Islands. Visit the Plain of Jars. Take the Jayavarman from Cambodia to Vietnam or combine a trip with the E & O Express to discover 3 or more Indochina countries. Laos and Cambodia both offer unlimited opportunities to see this part of the world.
