HIGHLIGHTS OF ASIA:
Immerse in the royal experience in Bangkok visiting the astonishing Grand Palace with its superb craftsmanship, and catch a glimpse of the rich historical significance in the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, Wat Phra Kaeo.
Watch the sun peek out from behind Angkor Wat's iconic towers in Cambodia! It's a pretty special experience and well worth waking up at the crack of dawn for.
Snorkel with a whale shark in Donsol, near the Philippine city of Legazpi in south-east Luzon, which has the highest concentration of whale sharks anywhere.
Explore Bali's considered art and cultural capital - Ubud. With its lush rice fields and calming rivers, even a casual stroll or meal may come with a lovely view of nature or architecture.
Get stranded on Malaysia's private island - Pangkor Laut, where endangered great hornbills and long-tailed macaques roam, and the odd metre-long monitor lizard bathes in the swimming pool!
