The first of our 2019-20 product range has hit travel agents nationwide – an expanded Indochina brochure that offers a fresh and interesting approach to experiential travel in Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar.
More than ever, we want to inspire people through our brochure and website to embark on a journey into the heart of Indochina with a unique selection of tours to regions less travelled.
TRAVEL THE ROAD LESS TRAVELLED
Venture Far experiences have their own narrative: from walking along Hanoi’s railways tracks and travelling the 36 backstreets of the Old Quarter, taking a tuk tuk around the gilded teak temples in the former royal capital Luang Prabang, or watching golden sunrises over symmetric stone towers at Angkor Wat and gold-leaf pagodas in Bagan.
Hotel options in each destination have been reviewed and offer a complete range from affordable through to boutique and luxury accommodation to suit every budget.
Some of the top highlights in the 19/20 Indochina program include
