French cathedrals, gothic architecture, a vibrant Chinatown, and miles of underground Viet Cong tunnels in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) bespeak a culture of colonization and conquerors in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), while Hanoi stands as Vietnam's culture and the arts center. Long-burdened by memories of war, Vietnam today is recast as a bustling tourist destination. A discount tour from Friendly Planet helps make traveling to Vietnam easy and affordable!

Just returned from Thailand, full to the brim! This was an exceptional tour—pace, activities, options, hotels, all exceeded expectations. Our guide, Lek, was outstanding—sensitive to our wants and needs, knowledgeable and instructive, generous in providing "tastes" of Thailand on our excursion and arranging optional visits to places close to her heart that we otherwise would have missed. Our days were full; hers seemed to never stop. Cambodia too was an amazing experience, again with our guide Long catering to the special travel needs of our group. This trip changed my bias against directed tours...Thank you, Friendly Planet!

This...was a terrific and inexpensive way to see the beauty and history of Southeast Asia. There was a very good balance of group and leisure time, and the accommodations were excellent.
