SE Asian Adventure

a trip by Laurie and Viv
From: October 14th 2006
Until: September 29th 2007

It had been nearly 10 years since we had last set foot in SE Asia and then it was only as part of a longer RTW trip. Previous visits had barely allowed us to scratch the surface but this time round, we wanted to make a thorough exploration of the region, visit as many countries as possible and totally immerse ourselves in everything it had to offer. As part of the trip, we also managed a side visit to China, a country which exerts a good deal of cultural influence over - not just SE Asian affairs but increasingly, the wider world as a whole.
