Phu Quoc

Phu Quoc is a quintessential island paradise, home to unspoilt beaches with powdery white sand, calm crystal-clear waters and an abundance of rare and unique marine life. Half of the island is a protected national park housing waterfalls, coral reefs, wetlands and mountains. The pace of life here is slow with sleepy fishing villages dotted along the coast. Whether you want to relax on the beach, hike to a spectacular waterfall or get up close and personal with some green turtles, you’ll finish your trip feeling blissfully refreshed after four days in this tropical oasis. 


We provide hotels in a stunning location with breakfast included and private transport from mainland Vietnam directly to your hotel. The perfect way to rest and recuperate before you head back home, this 4 day trip has no organised activities, meaning that your time on this beautiful island can be as relaxed or as active as you want it to be.

If you’d like you start exploring straight away, there’s the option to take a quad bike tour through the rice fields that surround the city to admire spectacular sunset views (age 16+; no driving licence necessary). You'll have a special welcome dinner at the hotel in the evening, the perfect start to your trip.

Day Two: Angkor Wat Exploring; Helicopter flight

Most people come to Siem Reap to visit the vast 12th-century temple complex around Angkor – your morning will start at Siem Reap Airport for your flight above it by helicopter, heading towards Tonle Sap and the floating village of Chong Kneas. Back on the ground, you and your guide will make for its most famous temple, Angkor Wat, swathed in exquisite carvings. At noon you’ll travel by traditional ox cart to a secret temple far away from the tourist crowds for a picnic lunch. Post meal, a foot massage will soothe your temple-hopping feet before you visit the jungle-covered Ta Prohm, which had a starring role in Tomb Raider. Your tour will end around 5pm, giving you some time to relax and grab some dinner before your evening activities. This evening, enjoy an action-packed, circus-style performance courtesy of Phare Ponleu Selpak, an NGO founded to give artistic training to poor young Cambodians.

Prepare for adventure, as you traverse Siem Reap’s surrounds by American army Jeep. First stop is the romantic sandstone temple of Banteay Srei, surrounded by a moat and covered in stunning carvings. Next, you’ll travel to the villages at Siem Reap’s very edges, to experience everyday life here: start by helping to make rice noodles for your breakfast in one village, then travel to the next to assist with the food prep while filling up on local snacks. Lastly, you’ll stop at the house of a family who makes a living from traditional palm leaf handicrafts, and they’ll help you to make your own as a souvenir. Round off the morning with an authentic lunch at a nearby family home. In the afternoon, you’ll have time to explore more of Angkor’s temples, as your guide leads you to the surreal Bayon Temple, covered in serenely smiling faces. You’ll continue on to the huge, 11th-century Baphuon temple mountain and the intricately carved Terrace of the Leper King. Later, travelling by car and boat, you’ll make your way through the countryside to Villa Chandara, a little known private house that serves delicious dinners by candlelight, surrounded by lily ponds and paddy fields. After a pre-dinner cocktail you’ll be served an unforgettable feast as you savour your surroundings.

(This tour is designed as a half day tour, and can last anywhere between 2 and 4 hours depending on personal preference). After lunch at a village house, it’s time to say goodbye to Cambodia with a private transfer to the airport ready for your onward flight to Hanoi.

After this, it’s time to take a less touristy approach to the city, as you’re picked up from your hotel and whisked through its maze of narrow back streets and alleys riding pillion on a Soviet-era Minsk motorcycle (approx. 3 hours). Travelling through lesser-visited parts of the city, you’ll taste street food, meet locals and see the strange and varied produce of the sprawling black market, before whizzing past the Mausoleum again, heading for West Lake.
