A feast for the senses and for the eyes, the warmth and colour of Southeast Asia makes the longer flight worthwhile. Whether you hanker for a bustling street market in Vietnam, communion with the gods in the ancient temples of Cambodia, relaxing on Phuket’s endless beaches in Thailand or diving into the underwater paradise of Indonesia you will not be disappointed.
Combine the Highlights of Cambodia and Vietnam or float on a traditional rice barge from Northern Thailand into Laos, explore the extraordinary landscapes of Myanmar, delving deeper into the countries’ religious, culinary and cultural histories as you go. Indonesia is the perfect destination during the British summer (happily this is also honeymoon season) and offers a great deal of cultural diversity (there is always a ceremony going on in a temple somewhere in Bali),
