This mighty journey leaves no-one unmoved!
An excellent mix of experiences. In the last decade, tourism in the region has become considerably easier. Every year new border crossings are opened between the countries and the bureaucracy has decreased after several decades of peace, thank goodness! In the big cities, the change is fast, but in the countryside not much has happened in the last hundred years – in the rice fields the rice farmers drive with water buffaloes instead of tractors which they have done since ancient times. Although the infrastructure is not the level of the bigger favorite Thailand, it now leads a well-trodden tourist track through the countries – with a good mix of cities, history, war memories, culture, and seaside resorts. A trip through Indochina must be well planned with a suitable itinerary purely geographically and balance in the components of the experience.
