Myanmar Isolated from the rest of the world for more than three decades, Burma remains one of the most mysterious and undiscovered destinations in the world and offers all the traditional delights of Asia: virgin jungles, snow-capped mountains, pristine beaches and ancient cities that was closed to foreigners for a long time. Myanmar’s culture is a result of heavy Indian influences intertwined with local traditions and some Chinese influences; this can be seen in the various stupas and temples throughout the country. Most Burmese people are incredibly friendly and polite, and will do their best to make you feel welcome in their country.

Vietnam Astonishingly exotic and utterly compelling, Vietnam is a country of breathtaking natural beauty with a unique heritage, where travel quickly becomes addictive.
Unforgettable experiences are everywhere in Vietnam. There’s the sublime: gazing over a surreal seascape of limestone islands from the deck of a traditional junk in Halong Bay. The ridiculous: taking 10 minutes just to cross the street through a tsunami of motorbikes in Hanoi. The inspirational: exploring the world’s most spectacular cave systems in Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park. The comical: watching a moped loaded with honking pigs weave a wobbly route along a country lane. And the contemplative: witnessing a solitary grave in a cemetery of thousands of war victims.
