  • Why we love South East Asia

    • The popular image of South East Asia is often of the locals, and no wonder. Whether it’s a saffron-robed monk, conical-hatted farmer or colourful street hawker, wherever you go in the region a smile is always at the ready
    • In Burma, our local leaders will show you Rangoon’s golden Shwedagon Pagoda, the bustling U Bien teak bridge at sunset, the silver sands of Ngwesaung Beach and the amazing leg-rowers on Inle Lake
    • Hire a bike in Hoi An and cycle to An Bang Beach from your accommodation to relax among the sun chairs under the palm-frond umbrellas. If you feel peckish it’s not unknown for restaurant owners to swim out and check their crab pots, then bring you back a meal
    • In Ayuthaya, Thailand you’re hosted in a traditional teak house. And when you take a culinary tour you’ll cook for Buddhist monks in Sukhothai on their morning alms round
    • See Borneo’s big drawcard wildlife in their natural habitat, and follow the well-worn Headhunters Trail in the footsteps of the Kayan warriors
    • A drink at Phnom Penh’s rowdy Foreign Correspondent’s Club contrasts with a gentle Laotian river cruise and caves with miniature Buddhist statues

    Safety information

    Your safety is our top priority. It’s one of the main things we consider when designing and operating our trips. Here’s some of the ways we help to keep you safe, and a few of the things you can do to make your trip memorable for all the right reasons. Before you travel We monitor travel alerts provided by the Australian, UK, USA and Canadian governments on a daily basis. Before a tour goes on sale we assess any risks and decide how to reduce and manage these. If we determine that an entire trip, part of a trip or an activity is too risky we won’t do it. It’s as simple as that. If we can’t address the issues and improve conditions we might modify an itinerary, change the accommodation or even decide not to travel to a certain location. Our overseas staff and local leaders are trained to address any health and safety concerns during trips. Before you travel, we’ll give you an emergency phone number. You’ll also get comprehensive pre-departure information, with information about vaccinations and other relevant health issues. We’ll also tell you if there’s any special clothing or equipment you need to bring. During your trip: You local leader is trained in first aid and always carries a first aid kit. Being a local means that if something does go wrong they know fastest and most effective way to get help. We’ll also give you a 24-hour emergency number in addition to the emergency destination telephone number. What you can do: Read through all the information we send you. If you’ve got any questions we’re always available to help. Keep an eye out for travel alerts by consulting your local Foreign Office. We also monitor these daily so that we can modify tours if necessary. Get some medical travel advice about the countries you are visiting, particularly about vaccinations and the type of personal first aid kit you should carry. Make sure you tell us any medical conditions, special needs or dietary requirements you might have. Get your vaccinations and take relevant medication well before travelling so they have time to take effect.

    Good itinerary, and well planned

    Thoroughly enjoyed the variety of experiences and options on offer and the social responsibility component - massage by blind people, nunnery visit in Hue, KOTO breakfast, etc. The small group of 11 was a comfortable size and vehicles, etc were comfortable. Hotles and meals were all good, and I am unable to falut anything.

    Burma - The Golden Land (Myanmar)

    Kim - Australia, 31 Jan, 2014
    Overall Rating

    The trip was very well paced, the hotels were all very comfortable and of a very good standard (especially at Bagan, Inle Lake and at the beach for our final 3 nights) and the activities and sites included were all excellent. I'm also really glad that we decided to do the 17 day tour - the Golden Rock & surrounding countryside is well worth seeing and the time to unwind at the beach before heading back to work was ideal.
