Sleep in Halong Bay aboard a traditional junk, hop on the Sampan Perfume River in Hue and cross the meanders of the Mekong Delta before reaching Phnom Penh by boat.

In a unique and exceptional way, aboard a junk, by road and boat, we will make you discover the most beautiful sites of ancient Indochina, a great extraordinary journey particularly studied off the beaten path.

The most singular is that these strange-shaped hills seem to float on the surface of the water, as their base is gnawed and that everywhere the silence of this sea spreads, sometimes broken by the cry of a sea bird.
