The Art of Indochina Travel Robert Louis Stevenson wrote "for to travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive." Similarly, in The Art of Travel Alain de Botton argues against disappointment, proposing that "the destination is of far less importance than an awareness of why we are on the move at all." Not too promising. Still, Martin Buber notes "All journeys have a secret destination of which the traveler is unaware." Definitely more promising, which brings is to Indochina. Languid, vivid, devastated, bold, enigmatic... exotic. Very few places in the world are as fascinating... or are as challenging, at least to plan and arrange a meaningful trip that won't wind up reinforcing the negative. We've excelled at doing this since we organized the first adventure tours over 16 years ago. We believe travel should be inherently personal and aside from our Photography Series and annual Arts and Lunar New Year tours, we meticulously organize private customized journeys that reflect every one of our client's unique style of travel. Because we organize our own tours in the region, our private tours cost about the same or less than other's group tours, while providing a more comprehensive and authentic travel experience, we know you'll be even more pleased with us.
Mission: We want to know what you like to see and do. Be your interests in French-colonial architecture, contemporary pottery or traditional Lao Ikat textiles, performance arts, or everyone's favorite — cuisine Vietnamienne — we provide the expertise and knowledge to ensure your trip is yours alone, more personal, entirely uncommon, and although tailored to your particular interests, inclusive of a few surprises we know you'll enjoy. Let us saturate you in the real culture of Vietnam and Southeast Asia, not a packaged version. Let us sort through the confusion ((lets' see, was it Binh Hoa or Hoa Binh? Of course, Veterans would know Binh Hoa was the largest base during the war, about 40 clicks north of Saigon), facilitate authentic experiences, and increase chances unanticipated pleasures. Isn't this ultimately a more fulfilling and satisfying travel experience? Put us to the test, call and see if we know our stuff.
