Indonesia

Home to over 17,000 islands, hundreds of languages, diverse landscapes, a kaleidoscope of cultures and the world’s largest Muslim population, Indonesia is a land of superlatives and wondrous variety. Bhinneka Tunggal Ika – Indonesia’s motto – means “united in diversity”, and this perhaps best sums up this vast and varied land of treasures; from mountains to beaches, to jungle and metropolis; from traditional cultures to modern comforts, Indonesia has it all.

Thailand

Known globally as the land of smiles, Thailand is deservedly the most popular destination in Southeast Asia. From picture-perfect sandy beaches, to steamy jungles; from ornate and ancient Buddhist temples, to the dazzling neon buzz of cityscapes; Thailand has something for everyone. This is a land of adventure, indulgence and beauty that’s guaranteed to satisfy your wanderlust and put a smile on your face.

Malaysia

Malaysia is a place where many cultures, flavours, experiences and ideas converge; a tropical getaway on the edge of the equator, where worlds collide and remarkable memories are made. Here you will discover white sandy beaches on deserted tropical islands, bustling mega cities, ancient tribal cultures and spellbinding natural beauty. A melting pot of all that makes the continent so irresistibly captivating, Malaysia is truly Asia.
