Inside Asia Tours Adds New Experiences

Inside Asia Tours specialises in holidays to Japan, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Burma. It has launched a new range of Insider Experiences which aim to give guests an insight into local culture.

New options include Khmer Cooking in Cambodia which costs from £120 per person, based on two participants. Renowned chef Kethana Dunnet, known for her traditional Cambodian dishes, reveals the secrets of authentic Khmer cuisine in a special cookery class at her country home near Banteay Srei Temple in the area of Angkor, in northern Cambodia. The experience lasts approximately three hours, culminating in the chance to sit down and enjoy the four-course meal prepared during the class.

Another new experience is in Hsithe rural fishing village in Burma. The price is from £130 per person (again, based on two people) which includes return transfers, guide, lunch and community donation. Visitors will travel to a small village in the Burmese countryside about three hours by road and boat from Mandalay to try traditional fishing alongside local people. Hsithe has a population of just 3,000, and relies heavily on fishing. The tour includes a demonstration of the characteristic net-throwing technique and a chance to try it first-hand. Following a picnic lunch, there is the opportunity to learn more about the other cottage industries in the village, including peanut and rice farming, cigar rolling, jam making, peanut oil production and the sewing of tailored clothes and fishing nets. With a local resident as an Insider guide, there are plenty of chances to ask questions and to find out more about life in the village. Guests also have the opportunity to see the local birdlife and perhaps even the rare Irrawaddy dolphins.

Each Insider Experience can be built into a full Indochina holiday package, to include accommodation and transport. Packages start at £1,995 per person for a 14-night trip, excluding international flights.
