Continue on to Kuang Si Waterfall - a beautiful waterfall made up of limestone formations and numerous turquoise coloured pools - a highlight for many when visiting Luang Prabang. Here you can enjoy the cooling freshness and leafy green shade of the area and bathe in some of the pools at the lower level of the waterfall. On the way, pass through rice fields and small villages dotted along the country roads.

Head back to Luang Prabang for some sightseeing in the Old Town including Vat Xieng Thong, perhaps the most photographed temple in Luang Prabang and Wat Sene known as one of the most beautiful. 

In the late afternoon, in time for sunset, climb to the top of Mount Phousi - home to a gilded stupa where you can enjoy views of the city and Mekong River (please note: there are around 329 steps to reach the top). On the way back to the hotel, stop at the well known Night Markets, a great place for shopping and local cuisine.

On your way back to Luang Prabang, stop at Ban Xang Hai village. Learn how they make traditional Lao rice whisky and get the chance to sample its unique flavour. Head to Ban Xang Khong village famous for its hand-made Jute Sar paper and Lao silk weaving before being taken back to your hotel.

Your driver and guide will then take you to Tran Quoc Pagoda, the oldest pagoda of its kind in Hanoi, dating back to the 6th century. From here visit the Temple of Literature, the first University of Vietnam. After lunch take a tour of the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum (closed on Mondays and Fridays).

In the late afternoon you will be collected from your hotel and your guide will take you on a walking street food tour in the Old Quarter.

Gain an insight into the intricacies and traditions of Vietnamese food culture including details on ingredients and historical backgrounds of popular Northern dishes. Eat as you go, walking through the maze of bustling streets, trying seasonal fruit and sampling tasty French-inspired snacks from a street cart. Try the famed Hanoi dishes such as Bun Cha Ta (a grilled pork and noodle dish) and Banh Cuon at a local eatery and watch as the skilled chefs demonstrate how this tasty dish is put together.

Continuing into the atmospheric heart of the Old Quarter, wander past street stalls and quiet residential lanes where you can observe local life that has changed little since Hanoi was founded over 1000 years ago - a hint at why it is called the "Old Quarter".

The next two snack stops are at outdoor BBQ stalls. Sit down with the Hanoi locals and sample various meat, vegetable and bread specialties that are flame grilled over hot coals for extra flavour.  It’s now time for dessert!

Your local guide will then take you to one of Hanoi’s best kept secrets - Banh My Hanoi - a hidden street food restaurant where you can taste the top street foods in Hanoi including Vietnamese Rice Wine and the famous Egg Coffee. This hard-to-find café is one of the few left in the narrow streets inside the old quarter of Hanoi. 

Please note: If you have any special dietary requirements, please let us know so that we can accommodate your needs and wishes.

Travelbay South East Asia Tours - 13 Day Indochina Map

How to get there:
This tour starts in Luang Prabang, Laos and ends in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

Travelbay works together with an excellent corporate flight booking company and is happy to provide you with a quote and organise your flights. We charge a $50 booking fee for this service. Alternatively, if you would like to arrange flights yourself you can find more information and suggestions here.

If you are wanting to know more about how far it is between destinations and how long your flight will take, you can visit www.travelmath.com and use their trip calculator.

Timezones:
To help you calculate the time difference we recommend World Time Buddy.

Visa information:

Laos
Tourists to Laos require a visa. This can be obtained on arrival and you will need a completed application form, a recent passport sized photo and the visa processing fee. Last time we checked (in January 2018) the visa fee was US$35.

Vietnam
Most nationalities require a visa when travelling to Vietnam. You need to apply for and receive your visa before you leave Australia. This can be done up to 6 months in advance. 

To apply online, please click on the following link: http://www.vietnamembassyvisa.org.au/

You will need to complete your details and upload a passport photo and scanned copy of your passport. Your passport photo should have been taken within the last 12 months.

Once you have completed the online form you will be sent an email with details on the visa fees and how to pay. Please note, you will need to pay the listed additional postage fee. 

In January 2019 the cost of an adult single entry 1 month visa was AUD $99 and a multiple entry visa AUD $140. The postage fee is in addition to this. 

Once you have paid and your visa has been processed, you will receive the visa in the mail. In our experience they have always been quick and helpful and it is a simple process.

If you would like to apply for your visa via post click here for instructions and more information. 

Important Information in relation to Vietnam Visa Approval letters

We do not approve of or support 3rd party Vietnam Approval Letters for the following reason:

  • Vietnam Approval Letters are NOT Vietnam Visas.
  • There have been many reports of fake letters and fake companies providing letters. The Vietnam Embassy have issued warnings in this regard.
  • Even if you get a genuine letter on arrival in Vietnam you have to take your letter to a counter, queue up (sometimes for as long as an hour), pay a fee and get your Visa BEFORE you can pass through immigration – this can cause quite long delays at a time you would not want one.
  • We recommend that you obtain your Vietnam Visa either online or through the Vietnam Embassy in Canberra or the Vietnam Consulate in Sydney prior to departure.
  • Should you urgently need a letter and for some reason cannot obtain a visa prior to departure such as due to short notice, our colleagues in Vietnam can obtain a legitimate approval letter for you, but you will of course still have to go through the queue process on arrival in Vietnam.

If you decide to go to a 3rd party to obtain a Vietnam Visa letter we cannot take any responsibility for the consequences should you not be able to gain entry to Vietnam or experience delays.

Cambodia
Most nationalities require a visa to enter Cambodia.

You can either obtain your visa on arrival in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap or you can apply online before departure. 

To apply online, please click on the following link: https://www.evisa.gov.kh/home - we found it to be a very quick and simple process.

You will need to complete your details and upload a passport photo and scanned copy of your passport. Your passport photo should have been taken within the last 12 months. The visa fee is payable at the time of application.

Once your visa has been processed you will be sent an email with the visa – you will need to print 2 copies and take them with you. 

Please note: The visa is only valid for 3 months from the time of application. We therefore recommend not applying too far in advance. The processing time is usually fairly quick providing there are no complications with your passport or application.

If you would like to apply for your visa on arrival you will need the following:

  • A completed visa application form (you can obtain the application form on your arrival)
  • Your current passport with at least 6 months validity
  • One recent passport sized photograph 
  • Appropriate visa fee. Last time we checked in 2019 this was USD30. It is best to have this in cash (US Dollars) for when you arrive. 

Currency information:
The currency used in Laos is the Lao Kip, in Vietnam the Vietnamese Dong and in Cambodia the Cambodian Riel. 

In Cambodia, the USD is widely accepted. 

What currency to take over there is a personal choice. Some people prefer to take US$ cash as a backup whilst others prefer to take AUD$ cash – it depends on what you are comfortable with. There are ATM machines readily available in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. Occasionally the older ATM's do not accept Australian debit cards and you may need to try a different ATM.

From our personal experience, in Vietnam we found the best exchange rate was on taking AUD into a bank and exchanging for dong. Please keep in mind that banks are closed on weekends.

We recommend letting your bank know that you will be using your card in Vietnam to avoid them freezing any 'suspicious' activity.

Tipping and Tour Guides:
A few customers have asked us about tipping. Really this is a personal matter, not obligatory and at your discretion.

Some like to provide the tour guide with a few dollars a day and a little less for the driver. If you love your guide you can of course offer more – it really is up to you. 

Tour guides will not generally join you when eating – you are welcome to invite them though if you feel to.

Vaccination Information:
Travelbay recommends you check with your doctor as to any immunisations that you may require or that are recommended for your travels.  Alternatively, you can visit The Travel Doctor or Travelvax for more information. 

Climate:

Laos

The climate in Laos is classified as tropical monsoon. What that means is that the weather is tropical and the wet season generally sees a fair amount of rain.

Dry season: November to February (cool dry) and March to April (hot dry)
Wet season: May to October 

Peak season: November to December is the peak season for travel in Laos.

The New Year (Pi Mai) is celebrated from April 13 – 16 and in some places the celebrations can last even longer. The whole country celebrates and there are many water activities on the street. Many people travel home to their families and travel at this time is not recommended.

Vietnam

Many people ask us about the weather in Vietnam.

There is not one simple answer so we have prepared a more detailed reply which you can find here.

    Dry season: Generally November to March (with some regional variations). 
    Wet season: May to October (with some regional variations).

    Peak season: 
    Vietnam is a popular destination all year round. The peak seasons for travel are from November to March and July to August. 

    The Lunar/Chinese New Year is a time when Vietnam all but comes to a standstill. Most people go home to their families and travel during this time is not recommended. The dates for the New Year change each year but usually it is in late January to February. Please note – we do not sell tours nor recommend travelling during this time. 

    Other dates to note include the following:

    • 24 April: Huna King Commemoration Day – this is celebrated in the Ninh Binh Province only
    • 30 April: Reunification Day – This day commemorates the soldiers who died in war during the 1800s and 1900s.
    • 2 September: National Independence Day – There are celebrations and fireworks in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
    • 4 October: Mid-Autumn Festival – Adults and children take to the streets to celebrate and float lanterns in the rivers and lakes. The Old Quarter in Hanoi and the Old Town of Hoi An are generally crowded.
    • 31 December – New Year’s Eve – January 1 is a public holiday and many people celebrate.

    Cambodia

    Cambodia lies in the tropics meaning that it is warm to hot year round and the climate is dominated by the alternating wet and dry seasons. Whilst it does rain in the wet season, there is no need to put off travelling at this time. The temples of Angkor Wat are at their most picturesque during the wet season and the forest comes to life.

    Dry Season: November to May
    Wet season: June to October
    Peak season: November to January

    Population: 6.9 million (Laos); 93.5 million (Vietnam) and 15.15 million (Cambodia)

    Language: Lao (closely related to Thai) / Vietnamese / Khmer

    Predominant religion: Buddhism (Laos & Cambodia) / No religion (Vietnam)

    Some interesting facts: 
    Laos was once called Lan Xang which translates to "kingdom of a million elephants".

    Laos has been conquered by the Thai, the French and the Japanese. It gained its independence in 1949 from the French.

    Laos has been labelled the most bombed country in the world. It is estimated that during the Vietnam war, more than all the bombs dropped on Europe during World War II were dropped in Laos.  

    Luang Prabang has a curfew of 11.30pm. All businesses are required to be closed by this time except for the bowling alley. 

    The Vietnamese language has six different tones. A change in tone changes the meaning of the word making the language somewhat difficult to learn (but English is widely spoken and the friendly locals are more than happy to help you with your Vietnamese pronunciation).

    It is hard to look past the dark history of the Pol Pot regime in the 1970’s where the Khmer Rouge terrorised the nation. From 1975-1979 over 2 million people were killed, some estimates are closer to 3 million. As a result the country has had spent the last 30-40 years rebuilding itself.

    Around half of the population is under 15.

    It was the Vietnamese who eventually stepped in to help Cambodia oust Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge in 1979.

      • When purchasing flights, cruises and other carriage and travel services, the name on the passport must match the name on the ticket otherwise you may not be able to travel and insurance may be invalid. If, after purchasing products or services but before traveling, any member of your party changes their name you must notify the relevant carrier, or us, immediately so that the necessary changes can be made to your documentation. You may incur a fee.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you meet all health entry requirements, obtain recommended inoculations, take all recommended medication, and follow all medical advice in relation to your trip.
