Itinerary & Notes
Arrive in the heat, hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh City. Still commonly known as Saigon, it is an exciting and absorbing city where scooters pack the streets and temples stand defiantly alongside modern developments. Devastated by the Vietnam War, it is now a bustling free market city where anything goes. Our hotel is in the heart of this incredible city. A welcome group meeting will be held later this afternoon with you leader followed by an optional group dinner after the meeting. *Huong Sen Hotel or similar*

This was an amazing holiday. We saw so much and it was so well organised - I cannot recommend Exodus enough! This was the first time we'd done this kind of trip with our nine year old daughter - and it was brilliant in the way it combined: having a family adventure, seeing places i'd wanted to visit, but made accessible and interesting for all the family; within the safety net of the trip being organised by someone that it was clear we could rely on. The detail and organisation was so well handled by Exodus and the guides, leaving us to enjoy ourselves, have adventures, watch the world go by, and learn about other parts of the world. I particularly appreciated the thought that went into supporting local people and businesses.
       
We have just returned from a two week adventure with our three sons aged 20,18 and 13. I can honestly say that our holiday exceeded our expectations. Our boys have all said that it’s the best holiday they have had .We experienced three very different countries and learnt so much. Our tour leader In Vietnam, Tam , was calm and organised and fed us infomation as we went along in a knowledgeable and personal way. Chheang in Cambodia was fab too and we were lucky enough to meet her lovely kids whose English was impeccable ! Hugh and Ant were also full of personality and good humour. We were fortunate enough to share our experience with a great group of adults and young people. Personally the homestay on the Mekong Delta was my highlight .The Killing Fields was harrowing . Learning more about the Vietnam War and visiting the tunnels was a humbling experience. We were exhausted but exhilarated . The organisation was seamless throughout .
       
It felt like a month's worth of holiday in 2 weeks! The one other family were lovely- making it a real pleasure to travel together. The children really all got on well and that really made life easy! We would not have managed to see and do so much in 2 weeks if we had traveled independently- our guides (Tam in Vietnam) and Dyka (Cambodia and Thailand) were both knowledgeable and helpful and coped with our noise well!! The whole trip was as expected- apart form the VERY long drive form Siem Reap to Bangkok (much longer than anticipated due to Thai traffic). Apart form this one thing the bus was reliable and comfortable and everything was organised in a family-friendly and timely fashion. It really felt like our Guides did all the hard work and we just got to have the fun. We have some truly amazing memories and I think our children will talk about it for years (hopefully!).
       
Have just returned from this adventure, and feel compelled to write...the trip was one of the most fantastic, memorable experiences we have enjoyed as a family. We feel deeply privileged to have visited all 3 countries and meet the people, Cambodia in particular, and Exodus should be congratulated on delivering a hectic but manageable itinerary, with exemplary organisation, and guides who really helped us connect with the people, culture and surroundings. We were also impressed with the ethical choices made for excursions.
       
A busy but well organised trip. This was the first time we'd done a trip like this and we don't regret it. We saw so much in the 14 days - I don't think we could have done and seen so much if we'd organised it on our own. Our two children (16 and 18 years old) had a great time. They made friends with the other young people on the trip and this made it easier and enjoyable for everyone. Everything was organised in a family friendly way and the guides were excellent. It was also good to see the way local communities can be supported by responsible travel.
       
It's a busy trip, with a lot packed into 14 days, but absolutely worth the effort as the experiences are amazing. We could never have done this in this way as independent travellers, so it was definitely the right choice to take the trip with Exodus. It just made everything easy and allowed the group to make the most of the time, and experience as much as possible. Very good ground transportation provided, comfortable and safe There are a couple of long drives, but they are broken up with interesting stops along the way - so while it looks a little bleak in the itinerary they are absolutely fine (although the Siem Reap to Bangkok drive is a tough one). Hotels all good to very good, and almost all with good pools too; the homestay is great too...more basic but one of the more memorable nights on the trip.
