Cruising is not really a popular way to spend a vacation in Asia, but if you do decide to ride the boat conquer the waters, then why not travel in Indochina? Indochina is a region in Southeast Asia that’s composed of three countries: Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia.
There are a lot of reasons to go on an Indochina vacation. If you haven’t realized these yet, then here are a few pointers to think about:
1. The cost of travel is cheap.
Did you know that you can easily become a millionaire in Vietnam alone? This is because of their low currency exchange value-$300 in US denomination is already equal to 1 million dong.
You should definitely take advantage of this low currency value, as it can get you a long way not just in Vietnam, but in Laos and Cambodia too.
2. You get to see the Angkor Wat.
Are you a big fan of Tomb Raider, or at least of being an adventurer? Then through an Indochina tour, you get to live like Lara Croft for a day or two, as most packages include trips to the Angkor Wat and Angkor Tom. Cambodia also has a lot of pagodas that you can visit too.
3. Go for gold in Laos.
While Vietnam and Laos are known for their riverside adventures, in Laos it’s different. This is one of the few places on earth where gold is a normal item lying on the ground. In fact, its most popular tourist attractions are that of giant Buddha statues made of pure gold. You simply wouldn’t want to miss this Ancient wonder, don’t you?
