Vietnam was tipped for big things in 2012 by National Geographic and Condé Nast Traveller, and we've since seen a spike in the number of deals for this destination. But one that also includes a visit to Cambodia's Angkor Wat, described as a "trip of a lifetime" by The Daily Telegraph, plus a host of other extras, is a rare find -- tick off both for £1549 per person.
This comprehensive tour is 55% cheaper than usual. Here's what you get:
The package also includes all transfers by private car, the services of local, English-speaking guides and travel by express bus for longer-distance journeys.
In Siem Reap, you'll visit the temples of Angkor, a UNESCO World Heritage Site "matched by only a few select spots on Earth", according to Lonely Planet. We've been and we loved the tree-strangled temples of Ta Prohm within the Angkor Wat complex.
You'll also cruise around stunning Halong Bay, with its 3000 limestone islands, deserted sandy beaches and floating villages, on a luxury junk boat. The bay featured in the James Bond film "Tomorrow Never Dies". Other highlights include a boat ride on the Tonle Sap lake in Siem Reap, a full-day tour of Phnom Penh, a trip to the Cu Chi tunnels, where the Viet Cong lived during the Vietnam War, and a traditional water puppet show.
The Wooden Angkor Hotel and Meracus Hanoi Hotel both won a TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice award this year.
Travel until April, 2014, from Manchester.
It's an even cheaper £1449 per person to depart from London Heathrow or Gatwick and an additional £300 per person to depart from 9 December-8 January.
