A region renowned for its unique cultures and natural beauty, Southeast Asia offers travellers a diverse range of destinations, all within easy reach of each other. From the golden beaches of Thailand to Cambodia's ancient ruins, from the verdant rice paddies of Bali to the majestic temples of Central Java, it is a region of contrast and variety, ideal for a multi-destination holiday. Situated in the Andaman Sea on Thailand's west coast, Phuket's coastline is fringed by scalloped bays, with white smiles of sand embraced by breezy coconut plantations and indigenous forest. The waters are crystal clear and their turquoise depths are home to an incredible variety of sea life. In neighbouring Cambodia, Siem Reap is the cultural capital ­ a quaint town just minutes from the World Heritage Site of Angkor. Hidden for centuries in a vast swathe of forest, today the hundreds of stone monuments, including the famous 12th century

Angkor Wat, bear testament to the magnificence of the ancient Khmer Empire. An hour's flight north lies another World Heritage Site ­ the picturesque town of Luang Prabang in northern Laos. Once home to the 14th century Kingdom of Lang Xan (Million Elephants), Luang Prabang is a romantic collection of French colonial buildings and golden-spired temples tucked between the Mekong and Khan Rivers. Moving east to the Philippines, one encounters a vast archipelago famed for its idyllic islands lapped by azure seas. Pamalican is one such island, surrounded by untouched coral reefs and the balmy waters of the Sulu Sea. And then there's Indonesia to the south, the world's largest archipelago of over 17,000 islands. One of the most renowned is Bali, an island which has drawn travellers ever since word of its legendary beauty began to spread in the early 1900s. Another island paradise is Moyo, a remote nature reserve in the pristine Flores Sea. The island of Java is particularly rich in culture and offers such awe-inspiring wonders as the 9th-century Borobudur temple.
