Southeast Asia

UNEARTH THE TREASURES OF SOUTHEAST ASIA

The countries of Southeast Asia offer a wealth of cultural and adventurous holiday options. The bustling city of Bangkok, the spectacular ruins of Angkor Wat, the jungle covered hills of Vietnam, and the many tranquil islands and colourful coral reefs are just a taste of what's on offer.

Thailand welcomes millions of tourists every year, with most drawn to the idyllic islands & beaches of the south and the colourful sights and sounds of Bangkok. However, there is much more to offer, including historical sites, wildlife parks, jungle treks and cultural encounters. Getting off the tourist trail in Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos will offer a rewarding experience, and all these countries combine well into longer multi-stop itineraries. The crowded and fascinating city of Singapore is steeped in history makes an ideal stopover en route. The beautiful spice islands of Indonesia are perfect for a relaxing beach based holiday with enough interesting sights and activities to keep the more adventurous traveller occupied. These include scuba diving the coral reefs, wandering the chaotic city streets or trekking inland in search of wildlife and mountain views.

TOUR REVIEWS Southeast Asia

All very good, easy to book and communication well received. Our only problem we had was we were given the wrong hotel name on our Itinerery to where we should have been staying, which caused allot of confusion with our pick up, and we ended up staying a night in a different hotel, but it was all sorted out in the morning by hotel staff
Hotels were all very nice with friendly helpful staff, our guide communicated well with us informing us of pick up and drop off times etc, The tour was well planned out, The tour guide was very knowlegable, and did well at communicating in 3 different languages to our group. It was a good way of seeing many different places in Morocco that we would not have seen had we not done the tour

Everything was very well organized and our guide Magz was incredible! He genuinely looked out for us the entire trip, especially in the markets and busy areas, as well as taught us about all of the history of the places we were at. Transportation was always ready and waiting for us and the accommodations were way nicer than we expected. Well done Encounters!
We really got to see a lot for the time we spent in Egypt and Encounters made sure no time was wasted in waiting for transportation and rooms and things like that. We had a great group, a great guide, and really learned a lot. All accommodations were exceptional and we couldn't believe how we did everything for such a good price

I was very pleased with the responsiveness of everyone that I encountered through Encounters Travel. I worked mostly with Anthony and he was always very helpful.
I thought they selected a wonderful guide for the trip. The one part that I really hope that they change is the night at the Bedouin Camp. It was not authentic and it was so out of the way. I think that people would prefer to spend the extra money for a night in a hotel with a bed and your own bathroom.

We were very lucky there was only one other couple who were very nice and our guide was excellent. His name was Phuong. He had a lot of knowledge, put it over very well and was very concerned that we were all happy and always went out of his way to help and did 'the extra mile'. He really made the holiday so good
We thought it was a good tour but did not particularly enjoy the two full days at the seaside. It could have been cut back to one. We did enjoy the snorkeling and swimming. We would have also liked an extra day at Hulong Bay as it is a long journey each way and we barely had 24 hours there. Everyone was very pleasant and helpful in the tours and hotels

We had a fantastic tour and there we no major problems. The staff were very helpful.
We had a wonderful time in Egypt and made some great friends while we were there! Our only concern was that everyone got food poisoning at the end of the trip so food hygiene standards may need to be addressed at places the tour visits. Our guide Maghed was the best! He became a genuine friend.
