VIETNAM & CAMBODIA ADVENTURE TOUR - FAQS

IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT OR AGE GROUP FOR THIS TOUR?

Yes, this and all Travel Queen tours are for women aged 25 to 59 who are up for adventure! One of the main reasons I set up Travel Queen was because I discovered there are lots of companies targeting 18 - 30s, but in reality it is mainly the younger end of the scale that go with those companies, and there is a big gap in any tours for people in their later 20s to 40s. So that was the age group I initially planned to target but then I realised that was a bit unfair to anyone that falls just outside of this! I certainly won't be changing my mind about how I like to travel as I get older so the age range extends to women young at heart, fit and agile in their 50s too. The only requirements are that you possess a spirit of adventure, thirst for fun and are prepared to maybe get a little out of your comfort zone...and I promise it'll be worth it!

HOW FIT AND HEALTHY DO I NEED TO BE TO JOIN THIS TOUR?

This tour is not a normal holiday; it is an adventure where we move around and see and do a lot! It doesn't involve any compulsory exercise that is excessively challenging but you will need to be of a good level of health and fitness for lots of walking, carrying your own bag when needed, be flexible and steady on your feet to climb in and out of boats in the sea, and to take part in and enjoy the activities described in the itinerary. 

 

Please contact us to let us know about any health and fitness concerns, issues or conditions before booking and refer to the booking terms and conditions on our booking page.

WILL I BE SHARING A ROOM?

Yes, everybody on the tour will share a room with at least one other person. Sometimes it will be more than one person, for example, the beachfront bungalows in Koh Rong Samloem sleep up to 4 people. The beds will be a mixture of single beds and double beds. We stay in some very luxurious hotels and villas that don't always have enough twin beds for everyone, but large double beds, that are ample for two people without getting too close and cosy! 

 

In my experience, women are usually quite happy to share a double and by doing so this makes it possible to stay in some beautiful places without it costing too much. 

WHERE DO I NEED TO FLY TO AND FROM AND WHEN FOR THIS TOUR?

You need to fly into Hanoi International Airport, Vietnam, and arrive in either the morning or early afternoon on the first date of the tour, in order to make the most of your first day. This would mean flying on the morning or early afternoon of the day before the first day of the tour, to allow time for the flight and the time difference, but this obviously depends on who you fly with and the stop over time. 

The day after the last night of the tour, a transfer from Koh Rong Samloem island back to Sihanoukville Airport, Cambodia, where the tour ends, is included in the price. You'll need to get a return flight home from here via Siem Reap International Airport, and can choose to allow plenty of time to just wait there for your international flight to depart, or opt to stay another night in Siem Reap and catch your international flight home the next day, the choice is yours.

 

Whatever you decide, we can help you with your onward travel arrangements, depending on where home is or where you're planning on heading next.

WHAT IF I WANT TO SPEND LONGER IN VIETNAM OR CAMBODIA BEFORE OR AFTER THE TOUR?

That is absolutely fine and we can arrange pick up or drop off to somewhere else, please just check with us first before making any arrangements to make sure what you're planning is possible.

DO I NEED VISAS FOR ENTRY INTO VIETNAM AND CAMBODIA?

Yes visitors do require visas to enter Vietnam and Cambodia. As all visa requirements differ based on where you are from, how long you are staying and are subject to change, please consult us about this. 

WHO WILL BE OUR TOUR LEADER?

As this is a new tour your tour leader will be led personally by the owner of Travel Queen, Mel, who has created the tour from scratch and tried and tested everything in person herself first. She'll be there throughout the tour day and night to take care of everything and make sure you have an amazing adventure!
