Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam | Newmarket Holidays

Brimming with sensory delights, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam are a trio of Southeast Asian countries well worth visiting. The best way to see all three countries on one journey is to travel Newmarket Holidaysalong the Mekong Delta, taking a scenic cruise. Escorted holidays such as those offered by leading UK travel specialist Newmarket Holidays can be among the best ways to discover these countries. Such holidays enable customers to enjoy comfortable accommodation and transportation, as well as fascinating itineraries and the services of a professional, friendly Tour Manager.

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. Traditional markets, historic architecture and stunning vibrancy combine to create an unforgettable city. 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

Newmarket Holidays | Planning The Planning The Perfect Holiday

Embarking on a well-deserved holiday is the highlight of many people’s years, but planning the trip effectively can be a daunting and time consuming task. Many factors need to be considered and should any be neglected, the quality of enjoyment can be lessened, leading to less relaxation than was hoped for. Employing the services of a respected and recognised travel operator, such as Newmarket Holidays, is one way to ensure that errors do not occur. This allows all holiday-makers to sit back and relax, safe in the knowledge that everything has been planned effectively and will run as smoothly as hoped.

Common issues that cause holiday planners problems include:

Travel insurance – It is shocking that many people still risk going on holiday without taking out travel insurance. It is worth remembering that as a UK citizen, free healthcare is only available in the UK itself. Should a customer become ill or be injured in a foreign country, payment for treatment will be required. Experienced tour operators, such as Newmarket Holidays, are able to either advise as to the most suitable insurance to purchase, or in many cases, will include insurance with any excursion booked through them.

Transfer transport – Still regularly overlooked, it is vital to have a plan for getting around once the desired destination has been reached. Taxis can be extremely expensive and unreliable, while hire car services can be time consuming to organise. For these reasons, many people just try to ‘wing it’ upon arrival.

Hotel reservations – Of course, one of the most important elements to get right is the hotel that will be stayed at while visiting a new destination, but reading reviews from former residents and viewing pictures can only reveal so much. Unless a traveller has actually visited a hotel before, there is no guarantee that they will enjoy it or that it will be of a high quality. Thankfully, experienced travel operators, such as Newmarket Holidays, strive to forge strong relationships with reputable hotel chains, ensuring customer satisfaction and a good night’s sleep.

With such pitfalls potentially ruining a much-anticipated break, it is easy to understand why many individuals choose to employ the services of regulated travel operators, allowing them to take all the difficulty out of planning the holiday of a lifetime.
