This journey takes you across dazzling landscapes; centuries of tradition; complex cultures influenced by powerful civilisations; incredible local cuisine; the finest of everything.
Welcome to Indochina, an incredible journey of adventure and discovery. Drawing on nearly 20 years of experience in the region, we’ve scoured this amazing region in search of the most scenic biking and walking paths, the best local cuisine, stunning architectural wonders and the most knowledgeable experts along with the grandest hotels available to create a trip that simply must be experienced to be believed.
On this incredible odyssey, we’ll visit four nations – Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia – where the ancient and modern worlds meet. Here, we’ll explore the lush forests of Thailand’s remote Golden Triangle, witness a prayer procession of 600 Buddhist monks in Laos, visit Vietnam’s historic Hoi An harbour and wander the ancient ruins and temples of Siem Reap in Cambodia over the course of 15 amazing days of discovery. Simple words barely do this remarkable trip any justice.
For this trip, we have secured our own private aircraft to whisk us from place to place. It’s enough to make even a WAG jealous.

Hotels for this itinerary
Anantara Resort Golden Triangle, Chiang Saen
The Anantara is a small luxury resort that takes full advantage of the tranquil splendour of the Golden Triangle. The rooms have high, teak beam ceilings and private balcony overlooking the bamboo forest, and are accented with the best of local silks and woven cottons.
Amenities include sunken tubs and DVD players. The resort is most magical at night when hundreds of candles cast shadows across Naga carvings in the main building and along the gorgeous infinity pool. The spa is sublime with stone steam rooms, hot rock massages and facials galore.
Four Seasons, Chiang Mai
One of the most celebrated resorts in Asia, the Four Seasons is an icon in Thailand. It has been voted Asia’s top Spa by Spa Magazine and every year is ranked among the top 20 hotels in the world. The hotel is located outside Chiang Mai in the Mae Rim Valley on 20 acres of tropical gardens and rice paddies. Your rooms boast rice-paddy views, and your upstairs verandas offer glimpses over the mountain ranges. It may be hard to drag yourself away from the polished teak floors, double vanities, over-sized bathtub and spacious veranda for a visit to the fully equipped fitness club, tennis courts or world-renowned spa, but they’re all worth it.
La Résidence Phou Vao, Luang Prabang
Originally serving as a government hotel, La Résidence Phou Vao has been transformed into Luang Prabang’s premier property. The location couldn’t be better, atop the Hill of Kites in the centre of town. Stand on your balcony and soak up the sweeping panorama of Luang Prabang and its Mekong backdrop. Your room is tastefully finished in rosewood and cotton, matching the hotel’s Lao/colonial architectural motif. The spa boasts an alluring combination of traditional Lao herbal and steam therapies.
La Résidence Hôtel & Spa, Hue
This former governor’s residence has been restored and converted into a boutique hotel and spa. Situated on the fabled Perfume River, La Résidence has a huge saltwater pool overlooking Hue’s ancient citadel, a fully equipped gym and wonderful new spa. With its distinctive art deco design, it is reminiscent of colonial Indochina.
The Nam Hai, Hoi An
This beachfront retreat sits right on the shores of the famous China Beach. The one-bedroom villas with private pools offer gorgeous views over the rolling waves of the South China Sea.
Amansara Resort, Siem Reap
The only place to stay in Siem Reap on such a Grand Journey is the Aman. Once the summer home of King-Father Norodom Sihanouk, the resort is located close to the town of Siem Reap and blends French colonial architecture with indigenous Khmer art objects. The pool suites offer a perfect oasis form the afternoon heat, and the resort provides the perfect base for your temple visits.
