Southeast Asia is one of the most sensual and seductive regions on earth. Add “magical,” “mysterious,” and “sultry” and you are still barely skimming the surface in describing this exotic destination. The poignant histories, unique cultures and spiritual traditions of Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam make up a world vastly different from our own. In the words of internationally acclaimed writer, Pico Iyer, “We travel … to be carried off into a sense of strangeness, and into the expanded sense of possibility that strangeness sometimes brings.” Nowhere on this planet better evokes this “sense of strangeness” than SE Asia.
