Bali Called as the Island of the Gods is rightly the most popular tourist destination in Indonesia. Tourism in Bali is focused around the beaches and towns in the south of the island. Kuta attracts the young partygoers, Canggu has its hipsters, Ubud is where the yogis gather, Seminyak for the young and rich and Nusa Dua is where you go for your all inclusive 5 star resorts. It’s this diversity which makes Bali such an easy choice for a relaxing holiday. Despite the clamour and chaos of the main tourist areas, the island is rich in natural beauty, with attractions for every kind of traveller.

Bordered by Thailand to the northwest and Vietnam to the east, Cambodia is a land of elusive wildlife and tropical adventures. The stunning temples of Angkor are the obvious draw for most tourists, but the country has much else to offer: tropical beaches, colonial buildings and an abundance of natural attractions.

Egypt officially the Arab Republic of Egypt, is a country in the northeast corner of Africa. With an impressive history dating back over 5000 years, and enormous enigmatic pyramids and other monuments to its grand past, Egypt offers a very different type of tourist experience.

Hong Kong is perhaps one of those most fascinating regions on the planet for so many reasons and on so many levels. Hong Kong welcomes with an iconic skyline, a legendary kitchen, and lush, protected nature where rare birds and colourful traditions thrive. Popular tourist spots are The Peak, the Big Buddha at Ngong Ping, Ocean Park, Stanley and the Star Ferry

Dynamic cities, fabulous food, beautiful beaches, idyllic islands and national parks with wildlife- packed rainforests – all of this can be found in Malaysia. One of Malaysia's key attractions is its extreme contrasts which further add to this theme of ‘diversity’. Towering skyscrapers look down upon wooden houses built on stilts while five-star hotels sit just metres away from ancient reefs. Rugged mountains reach dramatically for the sky while their rainforest-clad slopes sweep down to floodplains teeming with forest life. Cool highland hideaways roll down to warm, sandy beaches and rich, humid mangroves.

Singapore is a city as well as a country in South East Asia, is a little red dot, a small island located just off the southern tip of Peninsular. Singapura is a Malay word. Singa means Lion and pura means City. That is why Singapore is also known as Lion City. Combining with great taste food, fantastic shopping, exciting nightlife, first-class airport and connections to the rest of the world, this Lion City is a great stopover

Known as the “Land of the Thunder Dragon,” Bhutan is a remote Himalayan kingdom located east of Nepal and west of Burma, between Tibet and India.  Visitors will be treated to beautiful treks along snowcapped mountains that are carpeted with forests and tumble down to flower-filled valleys, a rich bio-diversity that includes unique birds and mammals and unique Buddhist architecture typified by dzongs and monasteries everywhere.

There is simply no other African country – perhaps no other place in the world – that possesses a natural variety comparable to Tanzania. From the snow-capped majesty of Kilimanjaro, the highest freestanding mountain on earth, to the forested shores of Lake Tanganyika, the world’s longest, second-deepest and least-polluted freshwater body, this is a land of astonishing scenic beauty.

Welcome to the Maldives, where sands are white as the smiles of the locals, where fish swim happily in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, where the weather is a dream, and the deep rays of the sun wait to engulf you in their arms.
