Planning a trip?

It can be overwhelming planning a trip to a region as far and diverse as SE Asia. There are so many options. How to begin, so many options, where to go, where to stay, when to go.

Having lived and worked in the region with my family for many years, I can help. I have created four suggested itineraries, so that you can have some sort of starting point. The important point is to tailor them to reflect your own preferences and interest.  These are the 4 itineraries:

I have offered suggestions for other places to consider, these may be alternative locations within the country, eg Sapa in Vietnam, or other SE Asian destinations such as Myanmar or Bali. We may need to adjust the itinerary depending on when you choose to travel. In summary

  • please use the suggested itineraries as a starting point

  • consider the other destinations I have referred to 

  • complete the short questionnaire below, as this will help me to better understand what your trip of a lifetime will look like
