Indochina – A Land of Contrasting Cultures

Indochina is a land of contrasts, where foreign cultures clash with
ancient values and technological advancement goes hand in hand with a
centuries old way of life. Rice paddy fields and buffalos meet bustling
urban metropolises, where hand drawn carts jostle for space with
motorbikes – nowhere else in the world quite exhibits the contrast
between old and new like Southeast Asia.

nature and charming heritage of this exotic corner of the world, a new

The legendary Cu Chi Tunnels offer a chance to relive the horrors of
the Vietnam War, while an eclectic religious ceremony at the Cao Daism
temple provides an insight into a unique fusion of the region’s most
prominent religions.
To explore the traditional side of life in Vietnam, visitors can also
take a longboat trip around the Mekong Delta and its charming narrow
canals.
