Your voyage begins with the electrifying city of Hong Kong. Forever known as the “Pearl of the Orient”, Hong Kong is a sophisticated, diverse and vibrant metropolis with a tasteful blend of East and West, and a gateway to the Orient, where millions come to savor its culinary delicacies, hunt for extraordinary shopping bargains, and soak up its dazzling nightlife. After this brief introduction of Asia, we journey deep into the heart of the Orient to Cambodia, affectionately known as the “Land of Wonder”, to catch a rare glimpse of Southeast Asia’s timeless past. Here we visit the stunning Angkor Temples including the former fortified city of Angkor Thom, Ta Prohm Temple as featured in the hit movie Tomb Raider – Lara Croft, and of course the awe-inspiring Angkor Wat, crowning jewel of the ancient Khmer Empire and today’s national symbol of Cambodia.

Next up: Laos. We journey north and back in time to the ever-so-quaint UNESCO World Heritage Town of Luang Prabang. Surrounded by thickly forested mountains and situated at the confluence of the Khan and Mekong Rivers, this little spiritual town is perhaps the best preserved traditional city in Southeast Asia, and probably as culturally pure a place as you can find anywhere on our planet. With its splendid natural scenery, beautiful temples and sense of timelessness, Luang Prabang is the perfect sanctuary for visitors to simply find peace and get away from it all.

After a healthy dose of history and culture, it’s time to inject some excitement to the trip in the Land of Smiles. Touching down in Chiang Mai, a city with a beautiful cultural personality blessed with majestic natural beauty and warm friendly people, we embark on an exhilarating Elephant Safari in the Thai countryside; stroll through the bustling and world renowned Night Bazaar lined with endless stalls of colorful shops and eateries; sample and bring home Thailand’s culinary secrets by taking a fun-filled Thai Cooking Lesson at one of Chiang Mai’s family owned establishments beautifully set in the midst of spectacular rice paddies.

Last but not least, we end this incredible trip in Paradise with an indulgent three nights in beautiful Phuket. Set along the Andaman Sea, this world-class beach destination boasts a delightful mixture of a serene tropical atmosphere and a haven of entertainment for all ages, creating the perfect ambiance for a truly memorable holiday.

From glittering skyscrapers to breathtaking ancient temples. Unspoiled lush countrysides to white sandy beaches. Inspiring cultures to action-packed adventures. They’re all here. Get ready for your trip of a lifetime!
