Thailand is understandably a top destination for travellers from all around the world. The capital, Bangkok is a bustling city of contrasts, ultramodern and historic all at once.

And, as a whole, the nation’s  warm, laid-back locals, complex culture and tradition and great, great food all combine to create a destination that almost all travellers will want to experience for themselves.

Travellers can venture from Bangkok, via a network of canals, to Cambodia. There, travellers love to visit Angkor Thom, the site of the astounding Wat, Cambodia’s most iconic site. Beyond that, Cambodia’s capital, Phnom Penh, is home to numerous sites of historic interest as well as a stunning Royal Palace. From there, travellers can go along the Mekong Delta, with its floating markets, bougainvillea and rice paddies, to reach Vietnam, and the stunning sensory delight that is Ho Chi Minh City.

Ho Chi Minh City is a delight in more ways than one. A modern metropolis in which bicycles outnumber cars 100 to one, the city formerly known as Saigon is also filled with tree-lined boulevards and colonial architecture. In fact, the reminders of French colonial rule are virtually countless, creating a fascinating and unique overall atmosphere and what could be considered the world’s original ‘fusion’ cuisine. Vietnam is justifiably famous for its cuisine, and there is nowhere better than Ho Chi Minh City to sample some of the best Asian food available, and on a reasonable budget as well.

As they journey across all three countries, travellers will encounter an enchanting land that is lush and verdant as well as culturally vibrant. Moreover, with a good value for money escorted holiday like the one offered by Newmarket Holidays, they can be sure that enthralling Asian metropolises like Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh City will truly come to life without completely breaking the bank
