Nine Inspirational holiday ideas
We've got no less than NINE fantastic new holiday itineraries for 2023. They've been featured in the likes of The Telegraph, The Times and Wanderlust Magazine, but we'll keep all our ideas to help you make these trips unique and special - exclusively for you.
A Journey Through Madhya Pradesh
India in all its glory, from Begums in Bhopal to tiger tracking in Satpura National Park, a Gwalior palace and an absolute gem of a hotel on the Namada River in magnificent Maheshwar. And MUCH more. Yes, please.
Nature Trails and Cultural Tales
Explore Sri Lanka's fascinating culture and ancient heritage in the Cultural Triangle and Galle Fort. Take a boat safari, a privately guided 20km trek along the 'Pekoe Trail' and experience the beauty of the remote Gal Oya National Park.
Extraordinarily beautiful, extraordinarily serene and barely visited. Take river boats deep into lush green forest, discover ancient ethnic villages, rice paddies, Buddhist statues, limestone cliffs and caves. Experience Laos like few others do, or will ever.
A Different Side to Vietnam
There is more to Vietnam than the tried and tested Hanoi, Hoi An and Halong route. But most miss out. From Lak Lake to Phong Nga and Imperial insights in Hue, the reunification express and a secret side to Hanoi, we’ll help you discover an incredible country.
Less is More in Cambodia
Cambodia is neglected as a holiday destination in its own right. Where else can you find the medieval world's most magnificent ruins (yes, that’s right Europe), gorgeous islands, wildlife and an immersive vibrant, welcoming culture in such a small area?
Slow Motion Thailand
Dodging around the touristy parts of Thailand, this trip combines glorious boutique hotels with a terrific adventure way off the usual path. You’ll discover that the enchanting side of rural Thai life, which has long drawn in travellers, is alive and well. A privilege.
Fjord to Canyon - Desert to Beach
Oh, Oman! A vast, varied and insanely beautiful country with a big, warm welcome. In two weeks, you can explore the fjord lands of the northern tip to the lush tropics of the south, with dramatic mountain canyons, deserts and peaceful beaches along the way.
Off The Beaten Track in Borneo
Brilliant, beautiful, bounteous Borneo. And this trip takes it: insane wildlife down the Kinabatangan River, a longhouse stay with the Murat people in the remotest corner of Sabah before our expert wildlife guides take you to a rainforest research station deep in the Danum Valley.
Countryside and Caves by Train
But travelling a little more slowly by train can be hugely rewarding and fun, though expect the unexpected. We include an overnight journey as well as scenic train trips as you explore Vietnam from Hanoi to the Central Coast and Saigon with beautiful hotels along the way.
Where to go when?
Discover your definitive month-by-month guide to travel in Asia. It's not all about where's best weather-wise, though of course, that plays an important part. Our 'travel calendar' also includes cultural events, festivals and occasions that can elevate your holiday to new heights.
Why choose us?
If you're like us, you really care about travel. A significant part of your year will revolve around it; the planning and excitement beforehand, and the stories you share on your return, all matter almost as much as the adventure itself. What's more, many of us prefer to spend money on experiences, rather than material things. So, trust us: we know how important it is to get your holiday right. Here's how we do it.
