Authentic Southeast Asia Journeys
There is no shortage of fantastic places to visit and unforgettable experiences to be lived across Southeast Asia, home to more people than any other continent, and a melting pot of almost unfathomable proportions. Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos and Myanmar capture the senses as well as the imagination with their picturesque landscapes, solemn pagodas, deep spirituality and unique histories. Visit world-renowned temples or soak in the sun on some of the best beaches on the planet. Delight your taste buds with exotic dishes and make memories that are sure to last a lifetime, offering all the makings for a fantastic vacation for single travelers, couples, and entire families.
Thailand is known for its bustling klongs and markets in Bangkok and white-sand beaches. Yet much beauty can be found in Thailand’s sleepiest corners as well, and our deep-rooted connections mean unprecedented access to rare activities, such as painting with elephant in Chiang Mai alongside a private mahout (trainer) or visiting remote villages and their people near sleepy Chiang Rai. Cambodia and Vietnam have weathered tumultuous pasts, yet they are successfully navigating through the 21st century while preserving sacred traditions. Cambodia’s crown jewel, Angkor Wat, reveals the incredible artistry and architecture of the mighty Khmer empire. In Vietnam, tour the colossal network of connecting underground tunnels near Ho Chi Minh City or fall for Hanoi’s French colonial charm as you discover the city by cyclo. Laos is a spellbinding travel destination that seems to have stopped time, where Buddhist monks still walk down cobblestone streets in the early morning mist, silently accepting food offerings from locals. Neighboring Myanmar – whose borders recently opened to the Western world – is also steeped in timeworn beauty, enchanting even the most seasoned traveller with thousands of stupas in Bagan and ancient monasteries along the Ayeyarwady River.
A typical two or three-week holiday may incorporate a visit to a UNESCO World Heritage monument such as Angkor Wat or Bagan, with a spell on an idyllic beach, hill tribe trek, city break, stay at an elephant camp in the jungle or a relaxing river cruise. Whatever your dream holiday, Southeast Asia is guaranteed to surpass your expectations!
