VIETNAM For diversity of scenery and experiences among fun loving and friendly people from 53 Ethnic groups, Vietnam is the place to be. Vietnamese people are passionate about many things but few things more than food. Savor the unique flavors and textures created by restaurateurs and street vendors alike. A journey from the mountainous north to the low lying south, offers breathtaking scenery and numerous unique Heritage sites including the magical Ha Long Bay. Cities offer as much variety as the scenery from the old world charm of Ha Noi, to the elegance of Hue and the modern vibrancy of Ho Chi Minh City. From Chinese rule through the America/Vietnam war to the present day, Vietnam has an amazing history that can be seen reflected in today's way of life.
CAMBODIA The Khmer Empire of the 9th to the 15th centuries is long gone as a living culture but Cambodia is blessed with the remains of many magnificent buildings in the 400 square kilometer site that forms the Angkor Archaeological Park. The Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom sites as well as numerous smaller but no less magnificent buildings were part of the Park that was the largest pre-industrial city in the world. Siem Reap acts as the gateway to Angkor Park but is a charming town in itself. In the central area, is the capital of Phnom Penh. Further south, you find beautiful unspoilt beaches flanking the Gulf of Thailand. Cambodia is a beautiful country to visit where tourists will receive the open friendliness and welcome of the Cambodian people.
LAOS The official name is Lao People's Democratic Republic (PDR) but it is said that an alternative meaning of PDR is “Please Don’t Rush”. And this rather sums up the locals and the way of life in Laos. The cosmopolitan capital of Vientiane is relaxed, laid-back and charming. Tourists can take a walking tour of the major sites of temples, museums and monuments before meandering in the open spaces along the side of the magnificent Mekong River. Going north, the Unesco World Heritage City of Luang Prabang offers splendid temples, Colonial Era architecture, excellent range of food, vibrant night market and much more. The mountainous north and the flatlands of the south offer much for the more adventurous traveler who wants to experience the varied and beautiful rural Laos.
MYANMAR Myanmar is still often known as Burma. Myanmar's history is a glorious mishmash of settlers and invaders from all fronts over the past centuries that shapes the architecture, character and the way of life today. The strong Indian influences are intertwined with local traditions and tinged with influences from China. This can be evidenced in the various stupas and temples throughout the country, which bear a distinct resemblance to those in northern India. Like neighboring Thailand, Theravada Buddhism is the single largest religion, and even some of the most remote villages will have a village temple for people to pray at. Closed to the world at large for many years, Myanmar is a country of mystery and wonder which has now opened its doors for the more adventurous traveler.
OUR LOCATIONS HGH Travelâ€™s headquarters is located in Hue city but has many offices around Indochina. Our offices are always prepared to assist anyone with questions or booking. You can find our offices at anyone of these locations.

THAILAND Thailand is the most visited country in SE Asia and with good reason. With great food, a tropical climate, fascinating culture and extensive beaches, Thailand is a magnet for travelers the world over. Bangkok is a huge cosmopolitan city where modern buildings nestle comfortably near to an ancient temple adorned with multi colored, gold encrusted artifacts. Elsewhere in Thailand, you can find almost anything including thick jungles and crystal blue waters. And of course, then there is the food. Who does not like Thai food ? The flavors and textures are legendary around the world but never better experiences than in the homeland. Exotic, yet safe; relatively cheap, yet equipped with every modern amenity you need, there is something for everyone in Thailand.
