What's Included

Straight Talk

We want to make sure you're on the trip that's right for you. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Accommodations

On Halong Bay, we use the nicest boats that head to our favorite hidden beaches and secluded lagoons. Our traditional Chinese-style junk boats are consistently comfortable, offer an appropriate number of cabins so we can have the boat all to ourselves, and are allowed to visit the more exclusive parts of the bay.

Walking & Hiking in an Emerging World

As wonderfully fulfilling as travel is in Vietnam and Cambodia, it's not always easy. Even something as simple as crossing the road can be a challenge (watch out for that scooter!). Our itineraries and Trip Leaders remove as many obstacles and inconveniences as possible, but we can't remove haze and noise from the air, or replace poorly maintained paths—it's all part of the experience here.
