Bangkok, Thailand (PRWEB) July 04, 2013
The 12-day, 11-night tour begins in bustling Bangkok with an exploration of the City of Angel’s top attractions including the iconic Wat Pho (Temple of Dawn) and magnificent Grand Palace.
Once in romantic Luang Prabang, the cultural exploration continues with a visit to some of the most revered religious sites in Laos, including Wat Visoun, Wat Xieng Thong and the Pak Ou caves. Travelers can also learn the secrets of preparing delicious local cuisine at a cooking school led by a chef from The Residence Phou Vao.
The tour then moves to Vientiane for an investigation of the marvelous temples in the capital and also the uniquely laid-back way of life that operates here.
Phnom Penh is the next step on the fascinating trip, which begins with a city tour that visits Wat Phnom, National Museum the Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda with a spectacular collection of gold, silver, crystal and bronze Buddha statues.
The Southeast Asia tour then climaxes at the spectacular Angkor Wat complex, often touted as one of the world’s finest historical sites. Backyard Travel guests will not only visit the famed temple though, they will also be led on explorations of lesser-seen but equally exquisite temples by their local expert guide, such as Beng Mealea and Prasat Thom.
“Picking out one destination in Asia is a challenging prospect given the abundance of experiences and range of delights you can find throughout the continent,” said Backyard Travel’s General Manager Maeve Nolan. “This three-country tour allows travelers to experience some of the best sites of Thailand, Laos and Cambodia and the chance to compare and contrast their subtle similarities and differences.”
