Free flights to Vietnam

INDOCHINA – it’s one of those place names that conjures all kinds of romantic notions. And it’s little wonder. Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos hold some of the world’s most compelling sights, sounds and tastes.

For a limited time, APT is offering free flights to Vietnam for anyone booking a selected 15, 18 or 22 day trip on their fabulous Indochina Adventure tour.

The tour explores the cities of Vietnam with their French colonial influences, chaotic streets filled with markets, mopeds, cyclos and scooters. Beyond the cities, you’ll discover soaring mountains towering over tiny villages, incredible beaches extending along the coastline, and the seemingly endless green patchwork of rice paddies.

In Cambodia, you’ll discover the rich history and culture of this unspoiled environment, and witness some truly special places such as Angkor Wat, said to be the largest temple in the world.

Laos offers the World Heritage-listed Luang Prabang, where traditional Baci ceremonies are commonplace and monks regularly stroll the streets at dawn collecting alms.

But the highlight of APT’s Indochina Adventure is a seven night cruise along the Mekong River aboard the MS La Marguerite, the newest and most luxurious ship to operate along the Mekong.

To take advantage of the free flights (you will have to pay taxes of $500pp) book before December 31, 2009 for a departure between December 2009 and April 2010.
