In September 2019 we decided to make a round trip to Asia and we found at Lidl Holidays, a very good offer. We found a round trip to visit 3 countries: Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand-Bangkok for 12 days with all visits included and breakfast .We paid 1300 euros per person and honestly I did not have high expectations from hotels considering that these countries are quite poor.

Surprise, however! Lidl company exceeded all expectations, we had some beautiful hotels and rooms in this trip, and the breakfast was always rich and tasty.

We were extremely satisfied with the conditions offered in relation to the price, and the tourist guides who accompanied us during the trip were very nice, joking and helping you with whatever you needed, at any time.

Of course, although we had visits included,we also had a day off, sometimes. We chose to visit as many as possible.We did not stayed at the hotel at all.

Now that we have told you about the good conditions we had,we will continue to tell you about the trips we made. In Vietnam we had the trips included every day and we did not have to pay anything extra, except lunch and dinner, which were very cheap. With 15 euros 2 people can eat everything they want, including drinks.

Day 1- We visited the Vietnam War Museum where we were told about the horrors of war. Honestly I was very sorry for the people and there were some people wounded in the war who sold various souvenirs. It was nice to see how these people who were hard tried by fate were helped by some tourists. These are our pictures from the museum:

After visiting the museum ,we went to visit the Post and the Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Saigon:

After this visits we decided to explore the crowded city of Ho-Chi-Minh on our own.You can also chose to have this City Night Tour: Bitexco Tower and Dinner Cruise.These are our memories:

Day 2- We headed to the Củ Chi tunnels and saw the traps made by the Vietnamese in the war.As the round trip to the tunnels takes almost 2 hours, we had the rest of the day off.

Day 3- We left Ho-Chi-Minh and headed to Cambodia and we made a few stops. The first was at a lotus field:

The second stop was a crocodile farm and there was a nice restaurant near the farm. They also served crocodile meat, but we didn’t have the guts to try it.

The last and last stop was the province of Bến Tre:
