Tailor-make your visit to Southeast Asia to include some of our top UNESCO sites
Within Indochina (Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam), there's an ever-growing list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites to include in your trip. From the mysterious Plain of Jars in Laos, to the sparkling waters of Halong Bay in Vietnam, we recommend seeing why these places have been afforded special preservation status firsthand.
Once the prosperous capital of northern Laos, sleepy Luang Prabang has retained much of its tranquillity. Now a UNESCO protected town, it has a skyline of gilded temples and French-colonial architecture, perched at the confluence the Khan and the Mekong rivers.
A small, relaxed city, Hue lets you get close to Vietnam’s past through remnants of French colonialism, its part in the country’s modern wars and the architectural feats of imperialism. It also has artisan enclaves and frangipani-shaded suburbs where locals cook-up some of Vietnam’s best cuisine.
