Join us for an unforgettable journey through the majestic countries of Vietnam, Thailand, and Cambodia. Immerse yourself in the culture and history of Southeast Asia. Vietnam’s Halong Bay, Cambodia’s Angkor Wat, and Thailand’s Grand Palace are highlights but we believe this ancient land’s real beauty and mystique is experienced on the street. A small group setting allows for an up-close, authentic Southeast Asian adventure.
Vietnam is the first stop. A cruise down Halong Bay sails us by limestone karsts and junks (traditional boats). In Hanoi we’ll visit the Temples of Literature dedicated to Confucius. Travelling south, farmers wearing conical leaf hats tend rice paddies. In Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) walk beside the motorbike mayhem to the Notre Dame Cathedral, the Central Post Office, and the Cu Chi Tunnels (vital in the war). Be sure to sample the spicy cuisine!
Exotic Cambodia is best known for mysterious Angkor Wat, the breathtaking temple grounds believed to be the largest in the world. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the carved towers and smiling faces, partially strangled by tree roots, are imposing and inspiring. Watch the sun rise over the ancient spires and moats, and enjoy free time in burgeoning Siem Reap.
In Thailand, explore Bangkok’s famous floating market, where locals buy groceries in boats, and the dark water brightens with a rainbow of produce. Marvel at the coloured buildings, golden spires, and glittering mosaics of ancient royal palaces, and leave exotic Thailand with a full heart.
A Culturally Immersive Experience
The pace of life in Southeast Asia varies from bustling cities full of colour, incense, and excitement to peaceful countryside that rolls along dirt roads, past grazing cattle, to lush, impossibly green jungle.
In downtown districts, explore museums, temples, gardens, and shops. Mingle with monks in orange robes as you navigate the vibrant open-air markets for one-of-a-kinds, and treat your tongue to exotic cuisine that are arguably the most flavourful in the world.
We have selected hotels that reflect the way of life here, offering you a down-to-earth and memorable experience. Rural accommodations are simple, tranquil, and nestled in nature. Open a window and breathe in the wet, tropical air! Listen to exotic birds chattering above your roof in the morning before the sun gets hot. Chat with locals over a bowl of steamed rice under the light of a paper lantern. With DeNureTours, live life as fully as those who call Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand home.

Siem Reap is the capital city of Siem Reap Province in northwestern Cambodia, and a popular resort town as the gateway to Angkor region. Siem Reap has colonial and Chinese-style architecture in the Old French Quarter, and around the Old Market. In the city, there are museums, traditional Apsara dance performances, a Cambodian cultural village, souvenir and handycraft shops, silk farms, rice-paddies in the countryside, fishing villages and a bird sanctuary near the Tonle Sap Lake. Siem Reap today, being a popular tourist destination, has a large number of hotels, resorts, restaurants and businesses closely related to tourism. This is much owed to its proximity to the Angkor temples, the most popular tourist attraction in Cambodia.
Ho Chi Minh City
Ho Chi Minh City, formerly named Saigon, is the largest city in Vietnam. It was once known as Prey Nokor, an important Khmer sea port prior to annexation by the Vietnamese in the 17th century.
