Laos Map
Why I Love Laos
I love the atmospheric city of Luang Prabang - Laos’ spiritual heart. The aroma of fresh coffee mixed with delicious spices hangs in the air, whilst the combination of French Colonial architecture and golden-roofed Buddhist temples brings splashes of colour to the streets. The mighty Mekong is the lifeblood of the city – take a boat trip and glide past the villages, monasteries and wats that line the riverbank.

Cambodia Map
Why I Love Cambodia
The incredible Khmer temple complex at Angkor is undoubtedly the highlight of any of our Cambodia holidays. The sheer scale of the site combined with the iconic silhouette of the lotus bud-shaped towers and the wonderful bas-relief decoration which has survived since the 12th century make this a very special place to visit.

Albania Map
Why I Love Albania
Leaving the busy and colourful city of Tirana behind, you can find a country where time has almost stood still, with unspoilt scenery, wild beaches, rocky olive groves, a rich heritage of Roman ruins and really hospitable and friendly people.
Staff
Brunei Map
Why I Love Brunei
I love that Brunei has a great range of adventures to enjoy. Embarking on a culinary exploration of the Gadong night market in the capital was a test of my food boundaries and tolerance for sugar - the popular 'teh tarik', local tea heavily sweetened with condensed milk, kept me buzzing for hours! But the highlight was probably travelling to and spending time in rugged Ulu Temburong National Park. Kayaking down the Temborung River and rising early for sunrise from the treetop canopy walkway to the sound of gibbons in the jungle was something I won't ever forget.

Romania Map
Why I Love Romania
I am always enamoured by beautiful Saxony castles and Romania boasts some of the very best in the world. Transylvania, with its famous Bran Castle, is a fascinating area which never fails to charm me. When I’m in Bucharest I love to try and catch a performance at the exquisite Athenaeum.

Serbia Map
Why I Love Serbia
The Roman site of Viminacium in Serbia never fails to impress me. This grand capital of the ancient Roman province Moesia is located 12 kilometres from Požarevac. They have recently built a small hotel here and for the time team enthusiasts out there you can even work alongside the archaeologists. There is always something new to see on every visit as the excavation is an ongoing process.

Hungary Map
Why I Love Hungary
I love Hungary because you can combine the faded romance of its capital city with the beautiful countryside outside it. For a taste of local life, I loved playing chess at the Turkish era thermal baths in Budapest.

Slovakia Map
Why I Love Slovakia
Slovakia offers everything from natural and historical beauties to friendly people and delicious food. You can visit the most fascinating places within few days but also spend years here and still discover something new every day. Whenever I visit Bratislava I love to walk its romantic streets and along the banks of the Danube.

Montenegro Map
Why I Love Montenegro
Choose Montenegro holidays and not far from Ulcinj, close to the Albania border, you will find wooden houses built on stilts overlooking the tranquil Bojana River. Many of these dwellings are restaurants which serve the most amazing fish, and the home-made raki isn’t too bad either! Although if you arrive at the nudist beach you’ve gone too far…

Slovenia Map
Why I Love Slovenia
I love Slovenia holidays because they truly have it all! In this green and pleasant land you can find scenic lakes, beautiful mountains and attractive coastline all within a couple of hours’ drive of each other. The number of activities you can fit into a short trip here is tremendous.
