Indochina’s mist-shrouded temples, hidden beaches and mighty rivers have long held a draw on the Orient’s explorers. Let our destination guide on the region’s world-beating cuisine inspire you or, if you really have to taste it for yourself, consider a trip to Vietnam’s imperial cities, colonial quarters and island-studded bays.
And, with its golden palaces and labyrinthine temple complexes, next-door Cambodia is equally alluring. You can even knit the two countries together with a luxury cruise on the famed Mekong River; travelling upstream you’ll pass floating markets on your way between ancient cities and rural villages. With free upgrades to business class flights, you can be sure to arrive and depart in style.
But if you think you know this all already, have a go at our devilishly hard South East Asia quiz to see how well you score!
