Upper Mekong River Journey
Cambodia Highlights - Angkor & The Penh
Nature & Wildlife
Nature & Wildlife
Straddling the equator, Southeast Asia is home to some of the world's oldest rainforests, unaffected by any ice age. As the planet's largest archipelago, the region plays host to an awesomely rich bio-diversity of mammals, birds, insects and reptiles that have grown up in isolation, cut off by the seas surrounding their individual islands.
And that's just above the water.
Kanchanaburi & The River Kwai by mountain bikeTrekking, Rafting & Elephant Riding in Northern Thailand
Kanchanaburi is Thailand's third largest province lying 130-kilometres west and a comfortable 2-hour drive from Bangkok. The Province is rich in rainforest, lakes, rivers and wildlife, as well as ethnic minority people, and makes for some scenic as well as challenging biking.
Trek on foot and by elephant through the mountains and forests to meet some of Thailand's fascinating and colorful ethnic minority hilltribe people. Stay at unique homestay guesthouses, built in traditional styles, and help to preserve a valuable but threatened way of life.
If you have never visited Cambodia before and are limited on time, the highlights not to miss are the ancient, UNESCO World Heritage-listed temples of Angkor, including Angkor Wat, and the Mekong riverside capital of Phnom Penh, once regarded as the Venice of old French Indochina.
Cruise the Upper Mekong River between the historic ancient capital of Luang Prabang, a World Heritage site, and Houei Xay, located on the border at the northernmost point of Thailand, near to the infamous Golden Triangle.
