Experience the Real Indochina
Vietnam - diverse landscapes, historic cities
Vietnam covers an area of over 330,000 square kilometres stretching south from the Chinese border along the east coast of the Indochina Peninsula. The country comprises a complex geography with soaring mountains, fertile delta plains, ancient forests filled with exotic fauna, winding rivers and long sandy tropical beaches. Many years have passed since the end of the American war in Vietnam and yet this is often the first image that people still have of this small South East Asian country. But in reality Vietnam is a country of outstanding natural beauty, with many small peaceful villages. The people of Vietnam are gentle, smiling and welcoming to visitors with the richness of their origins evident in their daily life. Spirituality in Vietnam is a kaleidoscope of beliefs from Confucianism to Christianity, with a mixture of Buddhism, Taoism, Animism and Tam Giao (triple religion) thrown in for good measure. Some of the best beaches and most tranquil islands in South East Asia can be found along the coastline of Vietnam and because of the proximity of the whole country to the sea, delicious seafood is always on the menu. With its historic cities, beautiful scenery and friendly people, Vietnam will surely hold something of interest for you.
Cambodia – ancient temples and so much more
One of the most breathtaking sights you can experience is to see the temples of Angkor Wat at sunset and although many never go far beyond this spectacular complex during their stay, more and more people are beginning to realise that Cambodia has much more to offer than the famous Temples of Angkor. Cambodia is blessed with undeveloped golden beaches, unspoilt forests and beautiful old colonial cities like Phnom Penh, Battambang, Kampot and Kep, all of which have a very relaxing atmosphere. It is also the gentle, polite
and charming personality of the Khmer people which makes Cambodia such a memorable destination and after decades of upheaval and isolation, Cambodia is emerging as a new and exciting tourist destination.
Laos – old world charm, stunning scenery
With a landscape dominated by mountains, rainforest and the mighty Mekong River, Laos is one of the hidden treasures of Indochina!With the smallest population of all Indochinese countries, Laos provides the traveller with a chance to truly experience Asia as it once was. Largely undeveloped, devoutly Buddhist and blessed geographically with natural beauty, this country will leave a lasting impression on all who visit.
Thailand – the land of smiles
Thailand is undoubtedly the most popular destination in Southeast Asia with its irresistible combination of bustling cities, stunning beaches and tropical forests. Bangkok is known for its beautiful temples, floating markets and vibrant nightlife. Dubbed the ‘Golden Triangle’ Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai are situated amongst forest and home to numerous hill tribe villages. With miles of sandy beaches, resorts such as Phuket and Cha’am attract sun worshippers year-round.
