Luxury

I understand luxury and comfort is important to you. Your bespoke itinerary will always have this in mind.

 

Even if you wish to go to some of the remotest places to discover SE Asia’s hidden gems, I will make sure the accommodation is of the highest standard for a good night’s sleep and as a base to explore the area and, of course, that the cuisine on offer is reflective of the environment, season and regional taste, and of the utmost quality.

Creating your perfect holiday is always at the forefront, but maybe you would like to know a little more about what I can offer you... Well now you can choose a different approach. I will work with you to create your own personalised itinerary. Since I have lived and worked in Asia for many years, I can suggest places most tourists won't see. You will be able to sample the full range and delights of the local cuisine. Perhaps you want to try street food, or choose from one of the many superb restaurants that we locals know. Where are the best places to go for drinks and enjoy a stunning view. You can use the suggested itineraries on the website as a starting point, Amazing Thailand, Discover Vietnam, Explore SE Asia, Incredible India. You probably have some ideas of your own, perhaps consider adding one of the alternative places I have highlighted. It's not a problem. It would help me greatly if you can complete the short questionnaire I have provided. Once you have done this, we can arrange a call to discuss your proposed trip and take the first step to create your trip of a lifetime. You can decide where you want to go, how long you wish to stay, which trips/activities interest you. Not everyone in a group always wants to do the same thing. I can arrange it so that one can have a spa day, another can try cooking, someone can go on a heritage cycle tour. Everyone can get what they want out of the trip. Just remember, you will be benefiting from the 20 years of detailed knowledge and experiences I have gained, from living, working, and travelling in SE Asia. My service and commitment does not end there. To ensure an unforgettable trip, I will accompany you whilst you are in Asia, and arrange professional guides who will add to your enjoyment. The evenings will be free for you to relax and explore, I will be available to advise and assist you as necessary.
