Welcome to Indochina Travel

When agents have a very special client and a trip that must be hand-crafted, meticulously organized, of the highest caliber, and exceptional in all regards, they come to us. Over the last twenty years we've hosted founders and executives of the world's largest companies, Prime Ministers, and A-list celebrities, tailoring one-of-a-kind-experiences.

What makes Indochina Travel exceptional for you and your clients?

A Most Experienced Partner

We are one of the most experienced tour operators in Asia. In 1993, we founded the first American tour operator in Vietnam (read about us in Escape Magazine's 1994 article), organizing the very first Veterans, adventure, and arts tours of the country. Our founders have over fifty years experience organizing and leading trips in the region. We've organized trips from our Hanoi headquarters for over 20 years, branching out into Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, and Myanmar. Beyond our comprehensive destination information (read about Luang Prabang), please call us and ask the really tough questions, you'll be impressed.

Local Presence in Asia

Your clients will hear from our local staff long before they depart, such as Ms. Diep Le To, our culinary specialist who plans dining arrangements. All of our local office managers in Hanoi, Luang Prabang, Siem Reap, and Bangkok have managed our trips for 15 or more years—unparalleled in our industry.

Full-Service Supplier

From VIP arrival arrangements, luxury transport, special events, and matching the perfect accommodations, we've got you covered. Are your clients including a honeymoon stop in the Maldives or a desire a resort stay in Bali? FOB facility and ground handling services? Private jet or helicopter charter? We can make all arrangements for you in Asia.

We make you look good

Experienced U.S. sales office is happy to work directly with your clients pre-booking, even meeting in person as your representative, or if you prefer, supplying you with all the information and materials for you to plan the perfect trip for your clients.

For over 15 years, Indochina Travel has always provided us with an exceptional level of detail and service.

We create extraordinary travel itineraries, customized to your client and with your agency's branding (ask us for examples). Our comprehensive pre-tour materials include extensive information on each destination, including reading lists, dining recommendations, insider tips, guidebooks, maps, our very own Tour Guides. We complete all necessary paperwork, include visa applications so your clients may relax and enjoy their trip without dealing with formalities.


We will match any Virtuoso amenities and most often, with our two decades of relationships with regional hotels, at a better hotel rate with special attention on your clients.

Personal Touch

We are a specialized boutique operator, just the right size to know who you and your client's are by name. We make note for birthdays, and escorts and guides will know your client's preferences well before travel.

Insider experiences

We can plan what no other company can. Impress your VIP clients with a police escort from Noi Bai Airport in Hanoi. Meet in private with Vietnam's most renowned artist, Dinh Quan, or the country's most decorated fighter ace, Mr. Hong My, in his Old Quarter home, dinner in Phnom Penh with former Ambassador to the United States, Roland Eng, boating and cycling into off limit areas of Inle Lake, delighting children to a private performance in the home of master puppeteer in Yangon, or a tour of Angkor at sunrise with the foremost expert on the temples.

All the Details

Beyond escort staff, your client is monitored by a dedicated tour manager in each location 24-hours a day. In addition, our local office Director plans those special events, such as birthdays, anniversaries, and special introductions.

Peace of Mind

Travelers in Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia are served by a local emergency medical and air evacuation service through International SOS, an international company with two decades of experience.


If you've clients who have traveled with Abercrombie & Kent or Remote Lands before, they'll be impressed by our more immersive and comprehensive itineraries, local knowledge, special introductions, unique activities, not to mention a much better value than comparative companies—"ultra luxe Asia" without the ultra cost.


Nobody really knows what to expect in a new destination, especially Asia. Although we organize an itinerary with your client's preferences and our recommendations, we recognize these preferences and plans changes after arrival especially with children. We're happy to change plans in the moment.

Toss the Guidebook

Southeast Asia is the ultimate experiential destination. Certainly there are astonishing sites not to be missed, such as Angkor and Halong Bay, but the most fascinating and thrilling aspects of travel in the region are the people and very special activities we arrange such as elephant encounters, monks, premier chefs, and renowned artists and others, all on a private basis. Our itineraries emphasize unique and spontaneous encounters in each destination.
