Southeast Asia and Sri Lanka have so many classic highlights that simply can’t be missed – and it’s not without reason. The glittering Grand Palace in Bangkok, sunrise over majestic Mount Bromo, the endless temples of Bagan and the mysterious Sigiriya rock in Sri Lanka – all are cultural icons and offer fascinating insight into the history and culture of each country we sell.
However, we feel that it is really important to see more than what everyone else sees, and in fact it is the hidden gems that lie a little off the well-trodden path of other visitors that often leave the largest impression of the country you are visiting. Take a walk through the Balinese countryside with a local priest with a small blessing ceremony in his home, live and cook with Grandma and Grandpa in the stunning Knuckles Mountain Range in their home of generations, look out for rare Irrawaddy dolphins in the rural Ratanikiri province in Cambodia or relax on a beautiful, un-spoiled beach on Koh Kud – one of the last of Thailand’s untouched islands.
These holidays are for people looking for something a little different; to get under the skin of a country and venture deeper into the culture, history and traditions of these incredible countries.
