Clients in Southeast Asia

Sharon and Gary Goodman traveled to Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam for 25 days in February 2017, organized by Jack

We discovered Audley Travel during an internet search of how to travel to Southeast Asia, and felt that Audley’s “tailor made travel” was exactly the right fit for them. And that turned out to be exactly correct! Our specialist, Jack, assisted in planning out a trip that was near perfection. Jack did a wonderful job of planning out the trip so that areas that required more strenuous schedules of sightseeing were nicely interspersed with segments of the trip that were particularly relaxing and refreshing. The guides that Audley arranged were one of the many highlights of the trip. We relished in the fact that most drivers and guides met us at each airport and never disappointed us with a no-show or late arrival. In many cases, we felt we had made a local friend. We would recommend traveling with Audley with no hesitation and, in fact, cannot sing its’ praises loudly enough. During their travels, we met other fellow Audley travelers who also agreed that everything planned by Audley had gone perfectly! We have already been urging all of our friends to travel with Audley on their next trip.

I recommend visiting - Places to visit in Borneo

Lankayan Island is a great destination and your typical 'Robinson Crusoe' island situated about one and a half hours of the coast of Sandakan in the Sulu Sea.

Due to its close proximity to Turtle Island you are likely to see many turtles when you are snorkelling or diving on the house reef and the resort also has a small hatchery where you can see hatchlings being released into the sea.

This small idyllic island is a great place to spend a few days relaxing before continuing your wildlife experience.

Sandoway Resort, Ngapali

I recommend staying at - Sandoway Resort

First Class

Sandoway Resort located on Ngapali beach in the Bay of Bengal, Myanmar, is arguably one of the best resorts in the area with miles of pristine sand and very few tourists in comparison to the more developed beach destinations of Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia. The resort is the ideal place to end your trip with a few days rest and relaxation in this intriguing and colorful country.

I'll never forget when…

Bako National Park covers 2,742 hectares of a rugged sand stone peninsula to the east of the Bako River near Kuching, the capital of Sarawak. Millions of years of erosion have created an impressive and breathtaking coastline of steep cliffs, rocky headlands and stretches of white, sandy bays. Wave erosion at the base of the cliffs has carved many of the rocks into fantastically shaped sea arches and seastacks.

The coastline is also dotted by a sandstone cliff vegetation characteristic of Bako. Other major vegetation types include the mangrove forest, mixed dipterocarp forest, peat swamp forest, kerangas (heath) forest, and kerangas scrub on the plateau; it's possible to see just about every type of vegetation found on Borneo at Bako National Park.

Well worth a visit even to experience the novel way to enter the park- from the sea.
