- You will visit the following places:
Indonesia, a beautiful Southeast Asian nation made up of thousands of volcanic islands, is home to hundreds of ethnic groups speaking many different language. Indonesian rich history has been influenced by foreign powers drawn to its natural resources. With an abundant of green forests on all of its islands and half way between the poles, Indonesia was nicknamed ''The Emerald of the Equator''. It is famed for its beaches, volcanoes and jungles sheltering elephants, tigers and Komodo dragons.
South Korea is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula. Three-quarters of South Korea is mountainous, making it a popular winter sport destination in Asia. It’s a land of stark contrasts and wild contradictions, a place where tradition and technology are equally embraced; where skyscrapers loom over ancient temples and where the frantic pace of life is offset by the serenity of nature.
Vietnam is the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia. Vietnam's history is one of war, colonisation and rebellion. Few years back since the savagery and slaughter of the American War, this resilient nation is buoyant with hope. It is a country on the move: access is now easier than ever, roads are being upgraded, hotels are springing up and Vietnam’s raucous entrepreneurial spirit is once again alive and well as the old-style Communist system gives way to a socialist market economy. The country have transformed from one of the poorest in the world, with per capita income around $100, to lower middle income status within a quarter of a century with per capita income of over $2,000 by the end of 2014. It's colour, chaos and natural beauty bring a new adventure every day!
Taiwan is a small island nation with contemporary cities, hot springs resorts and dramatic mountainous terrain. It is officially the Republic of China and a sovereign state in East Asia. The Republic of China, originally based in mainland China, now governs the island of Taiwan, which constitutes more than 99% of its territory, as well as Penghu, Kinmen, Matsu, and other minor islands, following its loss of the mainland China territory in 1949 in the Chinese Civil War. This remaining area is also constitutionally called the "Free area of the Republic of China" which is not ruled by the Communist Party of China in Beijing. Taiwan has some very impressive scenic sites and its capital, Taipei, is a vibrant culture and entertainment hub. With its all-around adventure landscape, heritage-rich capital, diverse folk traditions and feted night market scene, Taiwan offers a continent-sized travel list for one green island!
Often overlooked in favour of its better-known neighbours, Laos remains one of Southeast Asia’s most beguiling destinations. It is a landlocked country, known for its mountainous terrain, French colonial architecture, hill tribe settlements, and Buddhist monasteries. The country retains a slow, rather old-fashioned charm, and its people – incredibly laidback and friendly, even by Asian standards are undoubtedly one of the highlights of any visit. The official tourism slogan is "Simply Beautiful".
Cambodia is a Southeast Asian nation whose landscape spans low-lying plains, the Mekong Delta, mountains and Gulf of Thailand coastline. It was once known as the Khmer Empire. With a population of over 15 million, Cambodia is the 70th most populous country in the world. It's busy capital, Phnom Penh, is the political, economic, and cultural centre of the country. Now a modest player on the world stage, Cambodia was once the seat of one of Asia’s most magnificent early civilizations - the mighty Khmer empire of Angkor, whose legendary temples continue to provide a touchstone of national identity as well as attracting millions of visitors every year.
Good-natured and loving, exotic and tropical, cultured and historic, Thailand radiates a golden hue from its ornate temples displaying figures of Buddha (a revered symbol), opulent royal palaces and tropical beaches through to the ever-comforting Thai smile. It is located at the centre of the Indochinese peninsula in Mainland Southeast Asia. The capital and largest city is Bangkok, which is Thailand's political, commercial, industrial, and cultural hub. With great food, a tropical climate, fascinating culture, majestic mountains and significant beaches, Thailand is a magnet for travellers around the world!
China (officially the People's Republic of China (PRC) – an ancient, mysterious and beautiful land, is always appealing to adventurous foreign visitors. The first thing that strikes visitors to the country is the extraordinary density of its population. In much of China, villages, towns and cities seem to sprawl endlessly into one another along the grey arteries of busy expressways. The main tourist highlights – the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, the Terracotta Army and the Yangzi gorges, are relatively few considering the vast size of the country, and much of China’s historic architecture has been deliberately destroyed in the rush to modernize.
