There are some wonderful great value tours in Indo-China, ask me to check dates and prices for you.

Food plays a vital part in Asian culture and the many flavours, spices and colourful markets are a feast indeed.  Whether you enjoy street food or local restaurants, push the boundaries in Asia and taste the wonderful variety of produce and many regional variations.

Culture of Asia from the vast plains and deserts of Central Asia through to Japan with it’s technology, blossom trees and mountains is an amazing mix of multiple races and religions. Enjoy hospitality from people in remote rural communities, street markets and farm traders. Experience a heady mix of spice, colour and smells wherever you go.

There are many festivals throughout Asia, get in touch to arrange travel to one of these colourful events.  Perhaps you are a keen follower of sporting events and want to combine a holiday with the cricket in India or Sri Lanka or the Grand Prix in Malaysia or Singapore?

For wildlife enthusiasts India with it’s many parks is a great destination for birding and tiger tours in particular and the Orang-utans of Malaysia and Borneo are a must see!  For divers, there are great spots all around South East Asia and if you want gorgeous tropical beaches, you’d go a long way to beat Thailand or Bali for the ultimate in relaxation and value for money.  For a mix of ‘bush and beach’ India, Sri Lanka and Malaysia are great choices.

One of the things I have come to love about you, Jules, is that you listen and take on board what makes me tick, and then tailor the holiday to fit me, not just try to convince me to fit a holiday in a brochure!
