Cultural Discovery

The cultural diversity of Southeast Asia remains staggering. On a visit to any one of these countries you can discover everything from highly developed, artisan societies descended from ancient civilisations -- such as the Srivijaya (c. 650 AD) or Angkor (c. 800 AD) Empires -- to jungle nomads still dressed in loincloths and penis gourds, toting bows and arrows, spears and blowpipes.

Vietnam

This a land for trekking and cultural discovery.

Vietnam

Saigon to Hanoi by Reunification Express + volunteer project
Departing cosmopolitan Saigon for Hanoi, commonly referred to as the Paris of the Orient, you will travel by overnight sleeper train. Chill out on the sandy beaches of Nha Trang & Hoi An, visit the ancient temples & pagodas of imperial Hue and sail on board a traditional junk in Halong Bay.

Papua New Guinea

Kenu & Kundo War Canoe Festival
The Kenu and Kundu Canoe Festival is a spectacular event that showcases many of the fascinating cultures of Milne Bay including other participating provinces in Papua New Guinea. It takes place in the charming town of Alotau on the eastern tip of the Papua New Guinea mainland.

Thailand

Thai Village Life and Traditional Medicine
Thailand's cultural and social roots are firmly set in the countryside, in fact, when Mahatma Gandhi said of his home country "... the real India is in the villages". He could just as easily have been referring to Thailand, a country whose political and cultural birth was in the "million rice fields" of the ancient Lanna Thai Kingdom.
