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.

Start a visit to the Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda, two of the finest examples of Khmer architecture in the capital. The Royal Palace was built in 1866 by the French for King Norodom. The grounds of the palace are also home to the Silver Pagoda, which received its name because its floor is made up of 5,329 silver tiles. The palace has been inhabited by kings at all times with the exception of the period when the radical Khmer Rouge party took control in 1975. Opt to learn more about these turbulent years when visiting the infamous Tuol Sleng museum by Tuk tuk. Continue to take a journey through Cambodia’s more turbulent past. Situated 17km from Phnom Penh town, Cheung Ek was made famous by the movie “The Killing Fields”. Nowadays, a large memorial has been built to commemorate the 17,000 victims who died here under the reign of Khmer Rouge leader, Pol Pot. The remnants inside the memorial and the mass graves that dot the area remind you of the suffering of the victims. Besides the tragic past, you will also start to appreciate the tremendous courage of the Cambodian people to move on and rebuild their nation.

Day 9: Phnom Penh               
                                   
After breakfast, transfer to the local ferry. A short crossing across the Mekong River, we'll take to bikes on the rusty banks of Koh Dach to explore the island's authenticities.
 
Heavy orchard branches of ripe fruit shade much of our bike trail as we ride into the island communities. Under elevated shophouses, we'll stop to see silk weavers create this supple fabric. Further down the country road, fruit orchards give way to vibrant vegetable farms. Reaching a far edge of the island, we'll navigate a sandy bank, which quickly expands into a white, small beach. In the shade of river huts, which are elevated over the Mekong River, we'll lunch on local specialties. There's even an opportunity here for a shallow swim or inner tube rental.
 
In the afternoon, we'll cycle past historic Khmer temples and the local school before revisiting the ferry pier. The last leg of our journey consists of an afternoon boat ride lasting approximately 2 hours. Among the fishermen's longtails, our chartered boat meanders down the sparkling Mekong waters and ports at the Royal Palace.

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+
