Southeast Asia

The cultural experience on a South East Asia holiday is never less than moving, with ancient Buddhas smiling over visitors, and the scars on the landscapes that serve as chilling reminders of twentieth-century wars. Among the hilltribes of Myanmar, one can take tea with the Padaung, their necks coiled with rings of brass make for an unforgettable Asia holiday. And then there is the sybaritic side. The cult of the destination spa began in Asia; today it is where the apogee of the phenomenon remains. From Chiang Mai to Con Dao, Asia delivers worldclass destination spas where one arrives exhausted and leaves transformed. Add to this the sheer variety of great cuisine - the salty-sweet of Thai fare, the curries of Luang Prabang, the hand-spun noodles of Hanoi.  Asia gets under your skin, and Red Savannah shares local streetfood secrets along with the newly Michelin-starred; we create truly decadent South East Asia holidays.

Vietnam is on of the most famous countries in Southeast Asia. Far more than just a battle ground between communist East and democratic West, variety is the joy of modern Vietnam. From designer boutiques and the buzz of motorbikes in Saigon to the old world conservatism of Hanoi, from pristine landscapes to ravaged battle grounds, this is a land of contrasts. Development has brought great hotels whilst colourful cultures remain unchanged, making this a very exciting time to explore Vietnam.

From the vibrant capital of Phnom Penh to the architectural wonders of Angkor Wat, Cambodia is a land full of surprises. Discover endangered wildlife and ethnic minorities in remote national parks, or learn about the turbulent and tragic past whilst marvelling at the gentle nature of these benevolent Buddhists. Rise early to watch the sky turn orange over Angkor Wat and sip fine wines as it fades below the horizon from remote island hideaways. The charming Khmer people have survived against the odds to extend the warmest of welcomes to all guests.

There is no greater reward than discovering a nation as it opens up to the outside world. That time is now for Myanmar, whose residents could not be happier to greet inquisitive travellers. A complex history is told through crumbling ancient cities, vast swathes of jungle fall from the Himalayan foothills to pristine beaches and central plains flank the mighty Irrawaddy. More than her breath-taking sights, it is the charm of Myanmar's people which creates the most lasting memories.

Laos is the size of the UK but has a smaller population than London. This explains the endless countryside and peaceful boulevards. Cut through dramatic mountain ranges as you cruise the mighty Mekong. Dust off your walking boots for encounters with hidden ethnic tribes. Wake up early to meet processions of monks collecting alms in the UNESCO town of Luang Prabang. From temples and incense to baguettes and colonial architecture, Laos is refreshingly different, unspoilt and utterly charming.

Wake up to monks chanting over a vast reclining Buddha or fishermen dragging in the first catch of the day. Lunch on fiery Som Tam or a hearty Massaman. Spend an afternoon elephant-trekking through dense jungle or luxuriating in a world-class spa. Enjoy dinner with the sand between your toes or explore night markets and trendy cocktail bars. Every guest in Thailand, from families to honeymooners, is warmly welcomed by the same beaming smiles and humble bows.

Thailand Holidays >


Photograph the sunrise from multi-coloured crater lakes within an active volcano or atop the largest Buddhist temple on earth. Breakfast with the orang-utan at a jungle feeding station. Learn to create local masterpieces for lunch with a traditional cookery class. Freewheel through rice terraces in the afternoon before sundowners and seafood barbeques on a powdery white sand beach. Indonesia offers something for everyone; from wildlife and scenery to history and culture with adventures and luxuries along the way.

The borders of Malaysia were carved out by colonial wars and within them we find an intriguing combination of history, culture, scenery and wildlife. Journeying through Peninsula Malaysia takes you from sleepy towns and plantations to haggling with tenacious traders amid colonial architecture and towering skyscrapers. Across the South China Sea the rainforests and reefs of Borneo create the best wildlife destination in Southeast Asia. Whether travelling in style to retrace colonial footsteps or blazing a trail through forgotten rainforests, you are never far from a breath-taking beach.
