Secrets of Southeast Asia

For today's traveller, the great adventure lies East – east to Indonesia, islands of infinite diversity and home to some of the most intrepid travel destinations on the planet. There are the rain forests of Borneo, the richest and most biodiverse on Earth and last stronghold for such wild and wonderful creatures as the pygmy elephant, the shy Borneo rhino and the remarkable orangutan, "old man of the jungle." There's Sulawesi, home of the Torajan people with their captivating villages, dramatic death rituals and timeless traditions. And there are spectacular underwater wonders throughout the archipelago; Indonesia is truly, the global epicentre of marine bodiversity.

Also the Philippines are another diver's nirvana — not only reefs, but wrecks from WWII. And for a change of pace, you can splash down in an underground river through soaring caverns and the occasional sound of a bat; the Puerto Princesa underground river is one of the "New 7 Wonders of Nature!"

Japan's remote islands and coastal Siberia present a tableau of cultural and natural wonders – forests of cedars, a thousand years old; smouldering volcanoes; samurai castles; and a subtropical wonderland called the "Galapagos of Japan."
