Who said we cannot revive the past? Certainly not Mekong Horizon that take you on a journey in the past onboard of the typical sampan, along the Mekong River.

There are no words to describe how enchanting South East Asia is. From the kaleidoscopic versatility of its landscape to the culinary delights, it can be explored to no end, without much damage to the wallet. Quite logically, if a country is a popular budget travel destination, chances are it will make for a splendid permanent abode.

Asia has always been one of the favourite destinations of dreamers or backpackers in search of idyllic sceneries and discovery. Some just decide to take 6 months off to travel the continent with always the same itinerary in mind (Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and sometimes India if time and money allow it); that’s the category of travellers we can find in the backpackers areas, also known as Tay ba lo in Vietnam. Some others even decide to stay for a while, creating some sort of Occidental groups also known as expats. (We can include here people on sabbatical leave).

For the backpackers, all these so called districts are a tiny piece of heaven, full of bars, shops and street restaurant that never close, and where alcohol is served 24/7.

Let’s have look at the most popular destinations:
