Savour flavour of life in South-East Asia

Spirit of Cambodia and Laos
Immerse yourself in two neighbouring, yet contrasting, countries.
Explore the UNESCO-protected temples of Angkor, in archaeological parks which contain the magnificent remains of the 9th to 15th century Khmer Empire.

Phnom Penh, a name that conjures an image of the exotic, delivers with the royal palace’s glimmering spires. Take a long tail boat ride on the mighty Mekong to Pak Our Caves where hundreds of centuries-old Buddha images are revered.
Visit Kuang Si falls in Luang Prabang with its many-tiered waterfall flowing into cool pools. Here there are several beautiful swimming holes – with amazing green water.

Join an optional excursion to the Elephant Park Project set up to protect the Asian elephant.

 Price from £2399 for 14 nights, departing Gatwick on May 20, Oct 7, Nov 18, 2014. Extend stay by four nights in Hanoi from £399 person.

Unveiling Burma
Discover age-old traditions on this enchanting, small-group tour. Visit stilted villages on Inle Lake by boat, experience the magical atmosphere in the Bagan with its 3,000 temples and contrast colonial and Asian architecture in Yangon. Here the gold-plated Shwedagon Temple shines in the sunlight.

Visit the small city of Hoi An, famed for its noodles and unique lanterns, on Vietnam’s south-central coast and once the largest harbour in South-East Asia.

The Citadel in Hue, Vietnam’s capital until 1945, was the seat of Nguyen emperors and its interior a forbidden city, were trespassers were sentenced to death.
