Travel Experiences

Around and about in Asia

Our business frequently takes us to the countries of Asia, especially South East Asia, so that we can visit the sights, inspect the hotels and rally the troops.

I hope you will be interested in our travelling experiences in the various countries of Asia, and that our impressions may help you decide on your next trip!

Recently I travelled to Vietnam as a guest of our Vietnamese agents in Ho Chi Minh City to inspect and experience first hand our tours.
