National Geographic Expeditions has announced their 2023 itineraries for Signature Land, including an expanded Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia: Ancient Temples and Natural Wonders expedition.
The Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia itinerary is a 17-day, 16-night journey across Ho Chi Minh City, Can Tho, Hue, Hanoi, Ninh Binh, Luang Prabang, and Siem Reap. Travelers will visit many historic sites, including the UNESCO World Heritage site Angkor Archeological Park, home to the magnificent Angkor Wat temple. All tours are guided by National Geographic experts.
The expeditions begin in December 2022 and continue through March 2023.
Visitors on the expedition will also visit the canals of Tan Phong Islet followed by a cycle excursion through charming villages and a visit to Cai Rang Floating Market — the most famous market of Mekong Delta; the Angkor Conservation Center — a site rarely open to the general public — to discover thousands of protected statues recovered from the archaeological site, and the Golden Silk Pheach Preservation Center — one of the last silk producers in the world where the silk-making process (raising silkworms to weaving) is fully integrated in one place; and Emperor Tu Duc and Khai Dinh Tombs in Hue, as well as a visit to the Purple Forbidden City.
