Khiri Travel has launched its largest tour itinerary to date – a 40-day journey that covers five countries in Indochina.
The new ‘Epic Multi-Country Program’ covers Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam, and transports guests across the region by plane, train, bus, boat, bicycle and tuk tuk.
Accommodation includes a range of locally-owned properties, such as boutique guest houses and hotels, while attractions on the itinerary include the Shwedagon Pagoda and Bagan in Myanmar, the Pak Ou Caves in Laos, Angkor Wat and Sambor Prei Kuk in Cambodia, and Hoi An and Halong Bay in Vietnam.
Activities include visits to fortune tellers, bamboo craftsmen, local schools, fishermen, textile weavers, noodle makers and tai chi practitioners, while the culinary aspects of the trip include a Burmese mohinga breakfast, fruit sampling in a Vietnamese orchard and stops in a Hanoi market.
“This trip is designed to inspire the travel trade by showcasing the diversity of the region,” said Willem Niemeijer, Khiri Travel’s CEO. “The key themes are variety, going local and a liberal sprinkling of days at leisure for guests to venture out on their own.”
The trip also includes nine days where guests can relax or explore at their leisure, including stops at Inle Lake, Luang Prabang, Siem Reap and Ho Chi Minh City, and the itinerary concludes with three days on the beach at Koh Samet in Thailand.
A full itinerary for the Epic Multi-Country Program, including optional inclusions and exclusions, is now available via the Khiri Travel website. There is also a special price of US$4,030 for the travel trade.
