With some of the most historically interesting civilisations, the ancient cultures of Southeast Asia have left some remarkable architecture from the mysterious past, such as the great Hindu and Buddhist traditions that gave rise to the fantastical cities of Angkor in Cambodia, Bagan in Myanmar, Sukhothai and Ayutthaya in Thailand. China too, reflects the achievements of the world’s oldest continual tradition, and abounds with historic sites. The heritage of the European colonial era, despite the lingering lament of its legacy, has also thrown up a host of historically interesting hybrid influences throughout the Southeast Asian region.

Southeast Asia is truly blessed with clear warm waters and fine sands to find the ultimate relaxation. As if that wasn’t enough already, some of these sandy coves are framed in some fabulous landscapes. The most developed resort style beaches are to be found in Thailand, Malaysia, and to a lesser extent Vietnam, Bali and the Philippines. If developed resorts aren’t your thing, the deserted beaches of Myanmar’s Mergui archipelago and the countless myriad beaches of the Philippines provide more than a lifetime’s beautiful beachcombing.

The forests of Asia are among the World’s oldest and are the last refuges of some of the most fascinating and iconic plants, animals and birdlife on earth. Whilst, as everyone knows, these areas are under ecological pressure, there is still a great deal to see, and wildlife trips go a long way to incentivising environmental protection of these last great wildernesses.
