An incredible and one-of-a-kind holiday destination, Cambodia is a country of light and shade, rising out of its bloody history with undoubted resilience and sparkling energy.

Far from being mainstream, Laos offers a uniquely authentic experience replete with charming people, fascinating ancient culture and a wonderfully slow lifestyle. The seductive simplicity of its rhythms against the backdrop of a rich, magical landscape makes Laos an utterly beguiling holiday destination.
Ancient, wild and colourful, India is a place that needs to be experienced with the senses: the scent of the spice-filled air, the sound of the cities, the sights of landscapes you never knew existed. At ETG, we are passionate about this fascinating subcontinent, and we want to ensure that when you discover it for yourself, you are comfortable, inspired and not restricted to the tired old tourist clichés.
Vietnam brims with colour, contrasts and flavour. For most people, Vietnam conjures up images of tantalising street food, the limestone karsts of Halong Bay and city streets alive with motorbikes and market stalls. It is all this - but there are so many more captivating experiences that many travellers overlook. This guide lets you in on a few of the secrets.
From soft sands to dense jungles, remote hill tribes to buzzing Bangkok, Thailand is a kingdom of contrasts. It has charmed Western travellers for decades, and many parts of the country have undoubtedly seen considerable growth and change. That's why to get the most out of Thailand, you do need to get clever with your itinerary - and our insider guide shows you how.
Borneo is one of the most biodiverse regions on the planet, where you can really quench your thirst for adventure and satiate your appetite for memorable experiences. The island is blessed with mountain peaks, dense jungles, endemic wildlife and tropical islands, intertwined with indigenous culture. Its poster child may be the orangutan, but when it comes to wildlife, it doesn’t stop there.
Every travel website or guidebook out there will tell you that Bhutan is "mysterious", "enigmatic" or "unknown". But at ETG, we like to look beyond the clichés about travel in Asia. This is our attempt to get to the heart of what makes Bhutan magical, through stories, insightful experiences, hotels with a difference and much more.
To our minds, Oman is the Middle East's best-kept secret. While its neighbours like Dubai have established a reputation as a glitzy, sun-lovers' paradise, Oman remains more low-key. It is still a remarkable place for those seeking sun and sand, with a year-round tropical climate. Yet it also offers a remarkable mix of culture, cuisine and authentic experiences. Our guide attempts to reveal a little bit more about what makes travel here so remarkable.
