Southeast Asia Luxury Tours: Itinerary Suggestions

Encompassing about five million square miles, Southeast Asia might be thought of in terms of the five or six mainland countries--Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, and Myanmar/Burma. The island nations include Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Boreo, and the Philippines. Civilizations have risen and fallen here for thousands of years, leaving behind them a wealth of ruins, history, and fascinating cultures.

Renowned for its sublime scenery even when a war zone Vietnam today offers the old capital of French Indochina, Hanoi--the city of two rivers--with an Old Quarter that boasts nearly 1,000 years of history. Rising from the clear green waters of the Gulf of Tonkin are the 3,000 islands of Hafong Bay and their tiny grottoes and splendid beaches. The central Vietnamese city of Hue dates back to about 200 BC.

In Cambodia, travelers with southeast Asia luxury tours will delight in Angkor, the country's greatest attraction, and its magnificent temples. Chief among these are Bayon, Ta Prohm, and world-renowned Angkor Wat. Thailand too is replete with breathtaking sights and experiences, drawing more international visitors than any other country in southeast Asia. Its lush limestone islands in the Andaman Sea, the bustle of Bangkok, the historic temples of Ayuthaya, and the orange-tiled Pra Pathom Chedi Buddhist monument are truly magnificent.
