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.

Vietnam

Cruises in the Mekong Delta
Known to the Vietnamese as Cuu Long, or "Nine Dragons", the Mekong Delta, covers 39,000 sq.km and is the rice basket of southern Vietnam. A watery world of rivers and canals, rice fields and fruit orchards, a visit to this fascinating and beautiful region of southern Vietnam is a must for any visitor to the country.

Papua New Guinea

Exploring the Sepik River
The Sepik River is one of two vast tropical river systems in Papua New Guinea that meander through the densely forested lowlands of the world's second largest - and the world's tallest - island. Along the banks of the river and its many tributaries live sparsely scattered, remote villages scarcely contacted by the outside world, where people live a lifestyle that has changed little for thousands of years.

Cambodia

Phare Ponleu Selpak Circus
The Phare Ponleu Selpak Circus combines fun, acrobatics, juggling, contortion and humour while at the same time gives a helping hand to Cambodia's poor families.

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.
