Viet nam overview
It’s been open to tourists for over 20 years now, but Vietnam remains shrouded in an air of mystery and danger. If you’re looking for an active destination that offers more than the pleasures of sun, sea and sand, this could be it. And, although coming to Vietnam and trying to avoid the war that decimated the country for almost 20 years up to the mid-70s would be crazy, there is a lot more here than battlefield memories.
Laos overview
Known as Lan Xang (Land of a Million Elephants) – has an appeal few countries can match. Neighboring Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand often overshadow this hidden gem of South East Asia, but holidays to Laos offer fantastic off the beaten track adventures for travelers looking for inspiration and culture
Cambodia overview
Like other countries in South East Asia, Cambodia has superb ancient sights, friendly locals, pristine jungle scenery, long white beaches and colorful, bustling local markets. Unlike other countries, most areas are completely untouched by tourism and offer incredible experiences for the more adventurous travelers.
Thailand overview
It's not surprising that Thailand has become Asia's most popular tourist attraction because it has something for every traveler; unmapped jungle to the west, adventure tours to the north, and to the south, islands surrounded by sea so blue the sky might have been rinsed into them. Our adventure tours offer a view of the best wildlife, people and landscapes in South East Asia.
Myanmar overview
Travel to Burma, now officially known as Myanmar will be like exploring an unknown territory where unexpected pleasure and adventures awaits. MYANMAR, formerly known as Burma, is one of the least known countries in Asia. The country offers great historical value, rich cultural heritage, and insight to a unique daily life style. It also possesses a vast ecological diversity ranging from Himalayan peaks to tropical beaches
Bali overview
Bali is one of the most beautiful islandS in Indonesia. The island covers a few small neighboring islands as well as the isle of Bali. The main island is located in the westernmost end of the Lesser Sunda Islands, lying between Java to the west and Lombok to the east. Bali is a land that appears to have a magnet at its exceptionally heart. It is a feeling which is challenging to grasp unless encountered.

Overview
Tour Highlights
Tam Coc and Hoa Lu are the two most beautiful sceneries of Ninh Binh province, just 100 km southeast away from Ha Noi. Tam Coc is considered as Ha Long Bay on land because of its beauty and charm. Sitting on boat en-route Tam Coc, one is enclosed by the scenic beauty of huge rocks standing along river and scattered green rice fields, all combining to form a poetic painting of the countryside. Visit Hoa Lu is the Ancient Royal capital under Dinh’s dynasty and pre-Le’s dynasty which lasted 41 years (968-1009).

Holiday Itinerary
08.00: Our guide and driver meet at hotel. Depart from Hanoi in the morning, the scenic drive along the HW 1 will take us to Ninh Binh, Upon arrival at Tam Coc, take a sampan on a river through the rice paddies to the grottoes of the sacred Tam Coc Caves. Enormous limestone karsts jut out from the green rice fields giving rise to this place’s other name, ‘Halong on Land’. We will stop at Hang Mua (Dancing cave), enjoy climbing up over 500 steps to the summit. From the top of mountain, we can enjoy the dramatic panorama of Tem Coc rivers, canals and mountains. Extend the trip to explore the nearby beautiful Bich Dong Pagoda. Following lunch, we drive through the countryside roads to Hoa Lu, which is the ancient capital of Vietnam in 10th century. As the capital of the country for 41 years, Hoa Lu has many palaces, pagodas, tombs and pavilions that were built by different dynasties. One of the most popular pieces of architecture is the Bao Thien Tue Palace, which was plated with gold and silver. However many vestiges have been destroyed due to time and weather. The remainders of the site are Dinh & Le Temple.  Return to Hanoi in late afternoon.

We had great time in Indochina
On behalf of Kassie and myself, I want to thank you.  The trip was amazing!  The services were great.  You did a wonderful job.  No issues at all!  I would like to let you know that all of the guides were outstanding, but I do want to give Loan, our first guide in Vietnam a special outstanding recommendation.  She was knowledgeable, spoke awesome English, went out of her way for us, and was all around not only a great guide but a great person as well.  A+
I will recommend all my friends to use your services!

Thank you and please keep in touch.
