Vietnam and Cambodia: the world's top new trips for 2023 by Wanderlust magazine

A leisurely journey from Saigon to Angkor

On this overland journey you’ll get to enjoy the picture postcard scenery of Southeast Asian, from southern Vietnam to the temples of Angkor in Cambodia.

Travel through the Mekong Delta to see colourful markets, flooded forests, and a way of life that centres around agriculture and fishing.

Cross the Cambodian border, travel to the fishing village of Kep and explore this little-visited region of Cambodia, with visits to a pepper farm, fish market, national park, and the riverside town of Kampot.

Next is a short stay in Phnom Penh, with its European architecture, promenade along the Mekong Delta, and thriving foodie scene. Drive to the provincial capital of Battambang, a town surrounded by countryside and monuments. Finally, take a private boat across Lake Tonle Sap to Siem Reap, and end with two days exploring the Temples of Angkor.
