Vertiginous limestone islets and karsts provide an incomparable backdrop to Halong Bay. Spend two unforgettable nights exploring the subtleties and sensations of this incredible place. Venture into the unspoilt and verdant country of Laos, where there are few moments you’ll value more than the opportunity to take part in a traditional morning alms ceremony along the streets of Luang Prabang. The streets of Laos’ spiritual home turn saffron with the robes of hundreds of Buddhist monks participating in this sacred ceremony. Once in Cambodia you’ll marvel at the ingenuity of the great lake Tonle Sap’s floating villages one day, the incredible Khmer structures at Angkor Wat the next. Your spirit will soar.
