Indochina is more than a historic term to us.
The first time in 1804, the proto-term of Indochina, indo-chinois, was used by a Danish geographer, describing the peninsula between India and China. People quickly picked up the term and used it to describe the "peninsula beyond the Ganges".
Later on, the term became unpopular, because it seemed to emphasise China too much for the taste of contemporaries.
In our time, Indochina refers to the mainlands portion of Southeast Asia, including the following countries:
It is disputable if Singapore and the mainlands part of Malaysia actually belong to Indochina, but let's include them for better or worse.
The term "Indochina Tours" has recently gained popularity among travellers, agencies and tour providers. They include the above mentioned countries and their most famous (or in other cases not the most famous, but rather most interesting) destinations.
We limit ourselves to the Indochina peninsula for two practical reasons:
1.) The world is nice, but we want to be more specific with our content.
2.) Vietnam is nice but we don't want to be limited to one country. There is too much interesting stuff going on on the whole peninsula.
