ASIA HOLIDAYS

Southeast Asia stretches all the way from the Himalayas to the jungles of the far flung Indonesia Spice Islands, ensuring its natural beauty is as varied and enticing as its rich heritage. The region has smiling, welcoming locals, and each country manages to retain a traditional and authentic flavour alongside an exciting modern culture. Very few places greet you with such genuine warmth and delightful hospitality as can be found in the countries we have carefully selected for an unforgettable Turquoise holiday in Asia.

Thailand, MalaysiaIndonesia and the three countries which make up exotic Indochina (Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos), have a deep spiritual culture which has remained unchanged for centuries, despite the inevitable development of the modern world. Their people live life through the family, the local temple or mosque and the local market. This is a part of the world where history is alive and well.

REASONS TO VISIT SOUTHEAST ASIA

1.Wildlife is one key attraction for those visiting Southeast Asia, whether it be learning about Asian elephants in Thailand and Laos, or their smaller pygmy cousins in the pristine tropical forests of north Borneo or meeting an orang-utan at the fantastic Sepilok Rehabilitation Centre in Borneo.

2. Those seeking an active experience can jump from the deck of a Vietnamese junk into the warm waters of Halong Bay and then learn to fish like a local in Hoi An, white water raft down the rivers of northern Thailand or inland Bali and trek to local villages in northern Vietnam or Thailand.

3. Add a dash of culture - Explore the jungle clad temples of Angkor, the incredible temples of Borobudur or spend a few days discovering Luang Prabang, one of the best preserved traditional cities in Southeast Asia, all easily tagged on to a beach holiday.

4. Spend a few days in one of Asia’s exciting cities before heading to the beach - Hong Kong is a heady blend of skyscrapers and shopping, culture and cuisine, Singapore, whilst well-organised, spotless and orderly is fast becoming THE in place to be, whilst Bangkok offers a fabulous blend of old and new, traditional and modern.

5. Asia also offers exceptional value for money, excellent infrastructure and a range of superb resorts and hotels. Our firm favourites have a unique quality with a depth of soul and plenty of character... we avoid high-rises and mass tourism. Location is everything.

Whatever your preference, Southeast Asia is one of the world’s safest and most picturesque exotic destinations.
