Travel has always been a huge part of my life. From a young age, whenever I was whisked away by my family, I was always fascinated at how each country offers you a completely new experience – the sights, the smell, the food, and most importantly the people. It wasn’t until my gap year when I spent five months travelling with friends, that I properly fell in love with Asia.

Asia is so diverse. There's so much to see and do, and it’s all so unique. One day you can be cycling around the hidden temples in Angkor Wat, the next you’ll be on a pristine white beach on the coast of Vietnam. It’s diverse like nowhere else and the possibilities are truly endless.

Travel nuggets

  • If you have an option to do a street food tour in a particular city, do it! A great way to explore the heart of a city and soak up some culture.

  • When in Luang Prabang it's definitely worth getting up before sunrise to offer alms to the monks on their way to morning prayer. A great experience.

  • A trip to Saigon isn't complete without a Vespa tour. It's a great way to see this fantastic city from another angle.

  • If you're active ask your consultant to include a cycling tour around the Angkor temples – it was a real highlight for me.
