The Mekong River Cruise is one of the incredible and exciting river journeys, cruising on the Mekong river from Saigon up to Siem Reap, an 8 day historical voyage of colonial Indochina, much of which is relatively untouched. Departing from either Saigon going north, or from Siem Reap heading south, travellers will experience the full spectrum of culture and life on the Mekong Delta, as well as excursions to cultural and historical sites throughout Vietnam and Cambodia.

One of two Malaysian states located on the separate island of Borneo, just under 2 hours flight east from Kuala Lumpur. Situated on the north west corner of the island, our Sarawak Experience Tour is wonderfully eco-influenced, and the real luxury comes in the unique adventure opportunities, rather than the quality of the accommodation. Although the hotels we mention below are pleasant and well located.
The state capital Kuching is small and charming, easy to explore and is a good base for visiting the Semenggoh Orang Utan sanctuary, and a traditional Long House village.
Just a 50 minute flight by Bangkok Airways north of Bangkok, the Sukhothai region is known for its temples, rural scenery and gentle pace. The temples are spread around the region, but all are easily accessible from our chosen host hotel, the Heritage Sukhothai resort, either by bicycle or tuk -tuk taxi.

Vietnam is a fantastic country to explore, with so much rich culture, fascinating ancient and more modern history, and scenic contrasts. Weather wise it is split into three sections, each with their own climate pattern. The north, essentially Hanoi/ Halong Bay can be cold and misty particularly in the months of November to early February, so you need to pack accordingly. It starets to warm up from mid February onwards, and the spring months are generally very pleasant, as is September. July & August can be hot and humid.
On this page we detail just a few of the Vietnam Touring Options, either totally within the country or as a combination with neighbouring countries. All are arranged on a private basis, with driver and guide (different guides will be used throughout the country), so can be easily modified to suit your personal requirements.
As there are no direct flights to Vietnam from the UK, we suggest Bangkok as the most convenient gateway, although Hong Kong, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur can also be used.
Aava Resort and Spa Surat Thani is a delightful, relatively new, boutique hotel with just 28 bungalow style rooms. Located on a super stretch of sandy beach, in a quiet, scenic area which is still wonderfully authentic. You fly from Bangkok to Surat Thani ( 60 minutes ) and then continue by road transfer for just over another hour to the resort.
