From all of us at See Asia Differently we look forward to arranging your next holiday and being your local guide through Asia.
In The Know
Unlike most tour operators we live all year round in our subject destinations, this gives us first-hand knowledge on what’s new and different. We are aware of the fast changes in Asia and have the ability to be instantly informed on new openings of hotels and restaurants, as well as being ahead on festivals, cultural oddities and all the latest trends.
In our opinion there is no good or bad time to visit Southeast Asia, every season has its positives. Overall there are three distinctive seasons in the continent, Cool, Hot and Wet. We often refer to the wet season as Green Season. And it definitely is! Tropical downpours will occur but usually for short periods of time and the sun will always be present. Green Season is when the land and its people behave most vibrantly. Different exotic fruits, flowers and smells excite the sense, whilst there are less overseas visitors and better value hotels and resorts.
Depending on your interests or what you wish to experience, we have the knowledge to get you the best out of every season. We have something for every type and age, from single travelers, couples, honeymoons, families, private groups and special interest tours. Please feel free to get in touch with one of our specialists by phone or email and we will be happy to advise, maximize your specified budget, and assist you in creating your own perfect escape.
Seeing Things Differently
Our See Things Differently philosophy comes down to a few simple things. Having experienced the stressful working routines and fast rhythms of our modern lives, we understand and value how therapeutic it is for the occasional chance to view our everyday life from a different latitude and longitude. The importance of travel experiences, is to relax and renew and reconnect with ourselves again and sample different points of view.
Our personal time is becoming more and more valuable to us and we want you to get as much of this as we possibly can. After extensive travel and many years working in London for a selection of the UK’s major tour operators, we recognized that the personalization and individualization is often missing from our industry. We are all unique and we all have our different ways when holidaying and unwinding. We will consult with you to help create your own exclusive escape.

We are committed to responsible and sustainable tourism. All our trips are designed with the local people and the culture of the country in mind. We try and help to make a difference where ever we can by supporting various charitable organizations and making the conscious effort to be as green as we can, such as running our vehicles on Bio Diesel whenever we can. We are also constantly on the lookout for new eco-tourism ideas, and this led to the creation of Gibbon Spotting Cambodia, where we work with the conservationists and local communities to bring you an incredible wildlife adventure.
