Your Southeast Asia Holiday with Wendy Wu Tours

Southeast Asia is home to amazing sights and wonders of the world. To cruise between towering limestone cliffs in Halong Bay, stand in awe before Angkor Wat, revel in bustling Bangkok or wander between crumbling temples in Myanmar is the fulfilment of a lifelong dream. Yet, these fascinating experiences could be just the start of an amazing journey across one of the world’s most captivating continents. Expect lands of contrast, unique and compelling landscapes, incredible history, heritage and culture – all quite unlike anything you might have imagined.

Your Wendy Wu Tours experience begins before you travel and we are there every step of the way until you return home. Our customers are our priority, and we will do all we can to ensure your holiday is one to remember.

This Travel Guide provides you with practical advice and cultural information to help you prepare for your holiday. We are aware that this can seem like a lot of reading material, but we ask that you take some time to familiarise yourself with this information prior to departure and refer to the contents within throughout your travels.

Your Tour Dossier (provided with your travel documents) provides a straightforward description of the physical activities involved in each day’s sightseeing for your itinerary. If there are any particular challenges, from the length of time spent on your feet, the duration of drives and flights, to the standard of remote accommodation in our more off the beaten track destinations; they will be explained in your Tour Dossier.

More about your holiday

Almost everything will be different from what you may be used to. We have found that our passengers who embark with a sense of humour and adventure, who accept that things do not always go to plan, are those who find their experience most rewarding. Although Southeast Asia is developing quickly, please note that health and safety standards overseas can differ greatly from those we enjoy at home and are often of a lower standard. However, all of our suppliers meet local and national safety standards as a minimum.

A typical day’s sightseeing may include the bustle and noise of a city street, the sights and smells of a local market and interacting with the locals. Travelling in Southeast Asia requires patience and potential delays are to be expected due to different standards of service. There is a low level of English spoken throughout Southeast Asia, so your National Escort/Local Guides will
be indispensable during your trip.

At Wendy Wu Tours we are continually working with our suppliers to maintain and improve safety standards by seeking good practice in health and safety and we will do our best to ensure that your holiday is safe and trouble free. Part of the enjoyment of travelling abroad is experiencing a different way of life and culture, but it may also mean experiencing different safety and hygiene standards than those we are used to at home. We want you to have an enjoyable holiday so we ask that you take extra care, use your common sense as well as refer to notices and follow the advice from your National Escort/Local Guides.

Our tours are operated at a comfortable, moderate or active pace and this is shown on the tour page in our brochure, on our website, and in the tour dossier. For more information on the more active aspects of our tours, please refer to your tour dossier.

Our National Escort/Local Guides always endeavour to provide the highest level of service and assistance, but they cannot be expected to cater for passengers who are not fit enough to complete the itinerary.
