Cambodia and Vietnam Golf and Sightseeing Tour
Vietnam is the easternmost country in the Indochina Peninsula. With a population of over 89 million, it is the 13th most populous country in the World. Emerging from the various prolonged military conflicts, Vietnam instituted political and economic reforms resulting in economic growth being one of the highest in the world in the past decade. This has resulted in numerous investments in the tourism infrastructure. Part of these developments are the numerous high-quality golf courses that have recently been opened such as Montgomerie Links, and The Dunes Course by Greg Norman.
Siem Reap is the most popular tourist destination in Cambodia because of the World Heritage Site designation of Angkor Wat Temple. But to the surprise of many, there are three spectacular golf courses that have just recently opened. Critics have said that given time to mature, these three courses will be among the top courses in Asia.
