Cultural Discovery

The cultural diversity of Southeast Asia remains staggering. On a visit to any one of these countries you can discover everything from highly developed, artisan societies descended from ancient civilisations -- such as the Srivijaya (c. 650 AD) or Angkor (c. 800 AD) Empires -- to jungle nomads still dressed in loincloths and penis gourds, toting bows and arrows, spears and blowpipes.

Papua New Guinea

Kenu & Kundo War Canoe Festival
The Kenu and Kundu Canoe Festival is a spectacular event that showcases many of the fascinating cultures of Milne Bay including other participating provinces in Papua New Guinea. It takes place in the charming town of Alotau on the eastern tip of the Papua New Guinea mainland.

Malaysia

Borneo Family Adventure
Borneo, the world's third largest island, is a land of immense tropical jungles, wildlife, and fascinating tribal peoples with enduring, ancient customs. It is a nature playground and an ideal place to take children of all ages for a learning adventure.

Laos

Trekking in Northern Laos
Northern Laos especially presents many great trekking opportunities. Not only is the terrain very mountainous and largely swathed in forest, it is also home to a dazzling array of highly colourful minority tribal people who still pursue the traditional slash and burn (swidden) farming methods, unchanged for a thousand years.

Indonesia

Cycling Sulawesi
The Indonesian island of Sulawesi is ideal for adventurous cyclists: this is for riders who want the physical challenge of tropical mountains, who are looking for cultural adventure in a traditional Asian society off the beaten track, and who view the unpredictability of travel in a developing country as something to be expected and enjoyed.
