The result of many months of planning by the company’s country experts, the aim has been to create a journey that isn’t simply a “box-ticking” exercise but one that offers travellers the chance to truly discover the four countries through both imaginative planning and the inclusion of ample free time to truly get under the skin of the destinations.
The Ultimate Asia trip, which can also be fully tailor-made to cover a particular area of interest or desire to spend more time in a certain country, has as its base many of the region’s highlights as well as some gems often missed on standard tours.
Alongside what are for many people “must see” sights such as the temple of Angkor, the 2,000 Buddhist monuments spread across the plains of Bagan and cities such as Hanoi and Phnom Penh, the trip also features remote trekking regions of Laos, two nights on a private sampan exploring the Mekong Delta in Vietnam, a tuk-tuk night safari in Vientiane and the traditional Lao barbecue of Sin Dat.
A walking tour of Luang Prabang in the company of UNESCO expert Francis Englemann is also included, as is Ngapali Beach – Myanmar’s best-known seaside village that, despite increasing development, remains a South East Asia coastal gem.
Selective Asia managing director, Nick Pulley, says: “As you can imagine, it’s taken several months of discussions, and much debating amongst our team, to perfect our Ultimate Asia itinerary. We’re confident that this will be, hands down, the most memorable trip.”
Prices for the 38-day Ultimate Asia costs from £6354 per person, excluding flights, and is based on two people travelling on a bed and breakfast basis with transfers and the services of local guides and driver and private arrangements throughout.
