Travel is all about journeys. For us, the journey is just as important as the destination. Choosing the destinations is only half the work of planning the perfect trip. The other half is working out how to connect the dots along the way. We strive to strike a balance between journeys and sights to bring you closer to each country and its people. We offer a variety of transport in and around the country to bring a new perspective to the trip. A train ride from Yangon to Mandalay, a boat cruise in Halong Bay, a cyclo to explore Phnom Penh, an army jeep around Angkor and a 4WD to explore the backroads of Laos. We have crafted a selection of unique journeys, one of a kind trips that take in the best the region has to offer. We have designed a variety of original adventures, our inventive, innovative tours that including hiking, biking and a little bit of adrenaline. And we have created some authentic experiences, genuine encounters with real people from the Mekong region and memorable moments that elevate the ordinary into the realms of the extraordinary.

Seek some inspiration through a themed search for the perfect trip. Some people search by destination and the country, while others prefer to search by theme and happen upon some destinations or experiences they did not expect. Browse our Themes to find the best in adrenaline adventures, family escapes or that once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon. We also showcase our signature Temple Safaris.
The spirit of adventure is alive and well at Hanuman. Well it would have to be really, as for much of the 1990s just travelling in Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and Myanmar was one long adventure. Times have changed, but we are still inspired by the challenge of discovering new thrills and passionate about seeking out alternative experiences. Heck, we even get to live a little and enjoy the adventures ourselves.
Forget the university of life, that comes later. Introduce the children to the school of life that is an inspirational holiday in Indochina. It’s hard to imagine the impact a trip to Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and Myanmar can have on a young person, but it is sure to change their perspective on London, Los Angeles or wherever home may be. Experience a different family holiday in the Mekong region and broaden your horizons together.
Some say the romance of travel is gone. Trip Advisor or Twitter, someone else has been there and done that already and shared it with the world. We don’t buy this theory. We know that the romance of travel is alive and well. You just have to search a little harder to find those romantic moments or intimate experiences.

We had a great experience that we will always remember. Dara Polrith was great, very knowledgeable and told us many excellent stories! His knowledge of the temples was second-to-none. Everything worked like clockwork too.

Your guides are an absolute asset – they really show you the beauty of Cambodia and were so open and friendly. They have made the trip for us. Both Thol Rithy (Siem Reap) and Pa Sophea (Phnom Penh) were amazing! They made us fall in love with this beautiful country!

Aing Solin is the best. We felt immediately comfortable in her capable hands. She is highly recommended for anyone wanting a personalised experience. An excellent ambassador for Cambodia – she introduced us to the land, the culture and the people in a memorable way that will stay in our hearts.
