Three weeks encompassing Vietnam
A special shoutout to our last guide in Bangkok - Ms. Ka-Noon who spoiled us with her kindness and then got us through check in and security for our flight home in record time at that huge Bangkok airport.More

Three weeks encompassing Vietnam
Three weeks encompassing Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Laos. Albee Ning arranged everything perfectly. Not a flaw in the whole 3 weeks. Guides, flights (7 in total), hotels, private tours…everything was excellent. Travelling on a private tour gave us so much freedom to change our day if we chose to rest or go somewhere else.More

Over the last 5 years we've used Asia…
Over the last 5 years we've used Asia highlights twice. And both times we've had fantastic vacations. Would not want to do it any different when we travel to Asia from now on. Sharon was fantastic.

Family Trip to Thailand
Our trip to Thailand comprised three generations of the family , ten people and an age range of 4 to 70 so a potentially difficult brief.Our itinerary over two weeks involved four locations, and a number of different trips and tours.From out arrival at an extremely busy Bangkok airport Asia Highlights were terrific.In each location we were met by a smiling , knowledgeable and professional guide who simply made everything easy and stress free for everyone.Our transportation was clean and comfortable . Transport was always ready for us at the agreed time and the drivers were excellent.There were so many highlights enjoyed by all the age groups. The floating houses , railway market and elephant sanctuary were particular favourites.We had one minor glitch with the accommodation in Phuket which was immediately dealt with by Tip. I think we would have struggled to resolve the problem by ourselves. So, thank you Asia Highlights , Cathy, Tip and tour guides Tanny, Sam and Lisa. It was a memorable holiday and we will be back.More

Would definitely use them again when we come back to AsiaMore

Asia Highlights and Albee - highly recommended
Asia Highlights is very reliable agency and Albee is an amazing representative of the company. From the moment when we contacted her until our departure, the whole support we received was 6* level. She prepared our trip offer within few hours and afterwards she was extremely flexible to adjust as per our needs. In the period between the offer and the trip, Albee was always available for all our questions and supported us on the best possible way. During the trip she was again flexible to add new activities/transfers and this went on the smoothest possible way. Thank you, Albee and Asia Highlights. Definitely we will approach you again for our next Asian tripMore

Itinerary in Detail
This sample itinerary provides inspiration, yet your preferences design the real journey. Following our Tailor-made Guidelines to create a wonderful honeymoon in your own way.
Welcome to Bali!
At Ngurah Rai Airport, you will be met by our representative and transferred to your sweet hotel in the Ubud area in about 1½ hours.
Have a good rest and a free morning to overcome the jetlag. Beginning early in the afternoon, as the sun slowly sinks over the hills and bathes the area in a dazzling light, you will be treated to a sublimely picturesque High Tea experience.
The experience commences with a flower footbath on the adjacent riverbank before unwinding with a full body massage. Following this indulgent introduction, guests are treated to a serving of hors d'oeuvres, sweets, and locally-sourced teas, with stunning views across a lush river gorge. Then, witness Balinese rural life and learn more about rice growing and the Subak irrigation system.
The unique character of this luxurious and open-walled, safari-esque venue, combined with the stunning location, make for an unforgettable afternoon in Bali.
Located in the foothills of Gianyar Regency and surrounded by ravines, dense forest, and picturesque paddy fields, Ubud is one of the most attractive towns in Bali and a must-see for anyone visiting the island.
Your lovely tour of the cultural heartland of Bali starts with a visit to Neka Art Museum, where the collection of art on display is inspired by the natural beauty, life, and culture of Bali. You can also see the museum's wonderful collection of keris daggers — often beautifully crafted, they are strongly associated with the culture of Indonesia and recognized by UNESCO for their cultural importance.
Continue your tour with a stroll through central Ubud. Pass through the local market, which is always bustling with activity.
Then enter Ubud Palace. The local royal family still reside in the palace, but you are free to wander around the majority of the compound, discovering the ornate architecture and learning about the Asta Kosala Kosali tradition of house building, a method not dissimilar to the ancient art of feng shui.
Following the tour, lunch is at Laka Leke Restaurant. This will be followed by free time to explore the numerous shops and boutiques that are plentiful in the center of town.
In the morning, visit a traditional Balinese family compound to get an impression of local living. Your host Ida Bagus Suar Udiyana (Gusde), who is a member of the Brahman caste, will be proud to tell you about his culture.
Watch the famous woodcarvers from Mas Village at work.
Enjoy a home-cooked lunch with the family before you visit the uncle of your host Gusde, who is a well-known priest and medium, frequently contacted by the locals to ask for advice. Participate in a private astrology session followed by a purification ceremony (Balinese blessing).
Afterwards, you would be transferred back to your lovely hotel.
Pack your bags and say goodbye to Bali for a moment. Upon landing at Adisucipto Airport at Yogyakarta and clearing arrival formalities, you will be greeted and transferred to your hotel in Magelang by private air-conditioned vehicle (the drive takes about 2 hours).
A sunrise excursion to the 9th-century Mahayana Buddhist temple compound at Borobudur promises to be a tour highlight. It's the biggest Buddhist temple in the world!
A UNESCO site and one of the world's premier Buddhist places of worship, Borobudur's main temple aligns with Buddhist cosmology with its six square platforms topped by three circular platforms. Some 2,600 relief panels and 52 Buddha statues decorate the platforms; another 72 Buddha statues surround the temple's main dome. This massive edifice required more than 75 years to construct, and 60,000 cubic meters of stone.
Abandoned in the early 10th century because of political upheaval, Borobudur lay neglected until its rediscovery by an Englishman in 1814. As we watch in silence as the sun rises over the temples, we contemplate the enterprise and devotion that created this awe-inspiring complex.
A light breakfast is then provided at the Plataran Resort.
We continue on to the village of Candirejo, where you can learn about local art and craft. Following your tour, we’ll return to your hotel in Yogyakarta. Enjoy the afternoon at leisure.
Start the day's program with a visit the Sultan's Palace, also known as the Kraton, which is located in the center of the city and was founded in 1755.
Look out for the ornate reception halls as well as the large open-air pendopos (Indonesian pavilions), specifically built so that the Sultan could listen to gamelan (native orchestra) performances. There is also an air-conditioned room containing the desk at which the ninth sultan planned the overthrow of the Dutch. Something particularly curious, or just plain odd, is the painting of the eighth sultan on the day of his circumcision!
Next stop is Tamansari (also known as the Water Castle), situated just 250 meters from the Sultan's Palace. It was built in 1758 by the prince, with the sole purpose of being used as a 'place of pleasure' by the prince and his harem. The prince would sit in his tower, enjoying watching his harem frolic in the water, and send for any one of them who he fancied at the time, who would enter the prince's quarters, where he would enjoy his princely ways with them.
Lunch will be served at a local restaurant before we return you to your resort.
Leaving your hotel for the airport, we make a stop at Prambanan Temple complex, the ancient Hindu temple dating back to the 9th century. This collection of sharp, jagged temples features three main inner shrines dedicated to the Hindu trinity: Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva.
Then, we continue to Ratu Boko Palace, the ruined palace complex with a unique archaeological site, which features a meld of Hindu and Buddhist architecture. Standing majestically on a hillside plateau, it overlooks the magnificent Prambanan Complex, with Mount Merapi as its backdrop.
After the visit, we drive directly to the airport for your flight to Bali, where your guide will be ready to pick you up upon the arrival. A direct transfer will take you to your next hotel in Jimbaran for the night.
Sail away from Bali to Nusa Lembongan Island on a catamaran. Aboard the catamaran, complimentary soft drinks and refreshments are served as you travel from mainland Bali to Nusa Lembongan.
Upon arrival at the Waka Beach Club in Lembongan, enjoy a delicious BBQ lunch, which includes salads, steaks, and fresh fish. After lunch, you could join an optional guided tour of this small unspoiled island, home to seaweed farmers.
The catamaran sailing cruise offers an array of water sports activities, including banana boat rides, pool volley ball, snorkeling, and semi-submersible coral viewer. Other water sports options include a parasailing adventure, which would take you high above the water for a bird's-eye view of the island, and scuba diving with the in-house dive team.
And when the day is done, the catamaran sails leisurely back to Benoa Harbor, arriving as the sun sets on another glorious day in Bali.
In the afternoon, travel to the southern-most tip of Bali and visit the famous Uluwatu Temple. One of seven sea temples that are said to form a 'chain' around the island, it is undoubtedly one of the region's most venerable places of worship. Perched approximately 70 meters above sea level atop a steep cliff, the temple also has one of the most dramatic locations on the island and is the perfect vantage point from which to observe the huge waves as they roll in from the Indian Ocean and crash against the rock face below.
One of the highlights of this excursion is the opportunity to witness a traditional display of Kecak dancing, which features up to a hundred male performers who form a circle and sway and chant to hypnotic music.
A seductive crescent of white sand and blue sea, Jimbaran Bay has a reputation for having some of the best seafood on the island, and after your visit to Uluwatu, you will have the chance to dine in one of Jimbaran's best beach restaurants overlooking the Jimbaran bay. The fresh seafood menu and ambient beachside location merge perfectly into a truly sumptuous dining experience.
After a free and relaxing morning, you will be transferred from your hotel in South Bali to the famous beach of Jimbaran Bay, where your private cruise experience will begin.This day is for you to leisurely enjoy the beach or relax in the environs of your hotel!
Take off your sandals, walk down the beach and hop on a fiberglass speedboat, inspired by the local fishermen's boats, which are moored in the shallow waters. After a safety briefing from your captain, you will sail the calm waters along the white Jimbaran Beach and follow the impressive coastline of Bali's Bukit Peninsula to the southernmost end of the island.
Sit back, relax, and soak in spectacular views of the remarkable cliffs of Uluwatu, seen from an angle that even the most avid Bali travelers haven't witnessed yet. Cruise along some of Bali's most pristine beaches like Bingin, Balangan, and Padang-Padang, which became very popular after the movie "Eat, Pray, Love" was released. The waves around these beaches are renowned for ambitious surf, and you will see numerous surfers accepting the challenge.
Reaching a spot where Uluwatu Temple, regarded as one of the most important temples in Bali, is high above you on the cliffs. Join the captain for a traditional Balinese blessing ceremony by placing a floating canang sari — a small palm-leaf basket filled with colorful flowers, rice, and incense — into the ocean from the temple's cliffside and receive the blessing of Bali.
Take a dip into the refreshing water before you slowly make your way back. Explore the beauty of the Indian Ocean with your eyes as the sun goes down over Jimbaran Bay. You will stop for a while for the remarkable sunset's climax to indulge in the color-changing sky and the evening light. It would be the perfect moment to toast your beloved with a refreshing glass of champagne!
Back at the beach in Jimbaran, disembark from the cruise, and we'll escort you back to your resort.
