Instagrams of the Week: Indochina

August 14, 2015 Mark Bonington

The lands of Indochina were influenced culturally by both India and China before coming under colonial rule in the 19th century. Today they possess an identity all their own. Travellers are welcomed to these countries with open arms, where they have the chance to embrace a unique hospitality and harmonious variety of traditions. Scroll down and see some of the beautiful scenes our travellers have recently found there.

Farmers work the rice fields in Vang Vieng, Laos. This picture was taken by #gadv traveller @san5_ser1f while on her way to a local village homestay.

The ancient city of Bagan, Myanmar, by traveller @thomasrosoff. Over 2200 pagodas, temples and monasteries still stand in the Mandalay Region, although at one time there existed over 10,000.

The colourful chaos of Hoi An’s morning market in Vietnam. A beautiful capture by #gadv traveller @clarissap83.

Traveller @kerloee traverses Hai Van Pass in Vietnam on her way to the city of Hue. The name translates to “Ocean Cloud Pass”, referring to the mists which rise from the sea.

One of the many “Faces of Lokeśvara” in Bayon at Angkor Thom, Cambodia. Thanks to @samagram77 for this fascinating pic.
