UNLEASHYOUR MOJO: ON AN OVERNIGHT LUXURIOUS CRUISE OFF THE HALONG BAY.
Start in Saigon, the vociferous, crowded capital city whose colonial French boulevards contrast sharply with pagodas and roadside noodle stalls. Explore the vast underground network of tunnels, which the North Vietnamese used for guerrilla warfare during the Vietnam War.
Continue to Central Vietnam and visit the ancient merchant town of Hoi An, a world heritage site. Explore an Imperial city of the Champa Empire (4th-12th century), a large complex of over 70 religious architectural remains.
Next, transfer to Halong Bay where you will board the luxurious Chinese style junk, the Emeraude. Named for a cruising vessel that plied these waters between 1906 and 1937, the Emeraude aspires to the magnificence of the bay itself. Its air-conditioned cabins, en suite bathrooms, award-winning cuisine and spacious deck space set the stage for the voyage of a lifetime.
In Cambodia, your private guided tour will start in Sem Reap where you will visit the most impressing and breathtaking pieces of history in the world – the temples of Angkor. Established by the Khmer Kingdom of Kambuja, which gave its name to Cambodia, it became one of the largest empires in South East Asia. The tour will conclude in Siem Reap.
Max your Awim A simply ‘must-do’ whilst travelling in Vietnam is a cooking class. Hoi An is also generally the place where you would try your hand, a place famed for culinary schools of repute.
The new ‘Kid on the block’ is a definite contender to be one of the very best experiences delivered by the Ancient House River Restaurant. Your first stop is a boat trip to visit the Noi Rang Market or “Baked Pot Market” located on the river bank in the rural outskirts of Hoi An. The market is said to have more than 300 years of history and is a truly authentic experience. Then take a walk along the village roads, to meet and chat to the locals sitting selling their fresh farm produce. You will then visit the gardens around the village to understand the traditional gardening method as well as learn about the typical herbs that can be found in Viet Nam. Finally, cruise back to the Ancient House River restaurant for a private hands-on cooking class delivered by their skilled Vietnamese Chefs. And of course the best bit of all, is to try your own tasty creations.

It can be cheaper if you fly to Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur or Singapore or regular international carriers and from there take one of the low cost carriers to Vietnam.
There are no direct flights to Cambodia from the UK, but good connections are available from major Asian destinations. You can fly with Thai Airways to Bangkok, Malaysian Airlines to Kuala Lumpur or British Airways via Hong Kong. From there you can take the budget airline Air Asia or Dragon Air. The total journey time, excluding transit, is about 15 hours.
