Overview: The easiest way to obtain local currency is through ATMs, which are found throughout Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. If you need to change currency, you’ll get the best rates at gold stores along Hang Gai Street in Hanoi. Banks and better hotels also offer exchange services (but the rates won’t be as favorable). Avoid changing money on the street. Credit cards can be used in most locations, but travelers’ checks are only accepted at banks.

Passport/Visa U.S.: Passports and visas are needed by citizens of Canada, Europe, and the U.S. When leaving, expect to pay a US$14 departure tax at the airport and make sure you still have the yellow customs declaration form that was given to you when you arrived in the country. Reconfirm travel document requirements with your carrier before departure.

Tipping Overview: Tipping is a relatively new thing in Vietnam, and to date, it’s more commonly seen in the southern part of the country. Gratuities usually aren’t necessary in inexpensive restaurants, but upscale places will often tack on a 5% service charge. Tips for taxi drivers are purely optional (and most appreciated, however small).

Vast expanses of reflective paddy fields posturing rice stands through which gentle breezes eddy. Lacework deltas fretted with canals carrying fertile mud recently arrived from China, and boiling white beaches guarded by island sentinels. Discovery Indochina is a leading local tour operator offering great service and good value for money products. Since the beginning the company has established good working relationships with local suppliers, transportation agents, hotels across the region we are in good position to have best offer from them. This enable us to meet the increasing demand of travelers at the most competitive rates and the highest ethical standards. At Discovery Indochina we commit to provide fine quality of service in any aspect of our products. We consolidates our position in the travel industry with a comprehensive range of programs and our friendly environment operation reinforces our commitment to the sustainable development. Placed amongst a mosaic of lakes, Hanoi, the capital, still retains the red-tile-roofed French provincial ambience of years gone by amidst the surging urbane energy of a modern metropolis fused to a thousand-year history of Chinese cultural influence. A city to stroll in, to gawk at its market offerings, munch tropical fruits, sip delicate teas, Hanoi also has places to ponder ancient verities: the Temple of Literature, the One-Pillar Pagoda, the Lake of the Restored Sword.Saigon, on the other hand, commercial hub of the south spun along mangrove riverbanks, threatens to become a financial lightning rod. Once an Asian Venice, its main thoroughfares are now boulevards of filled-in canals wiring between traffic rotaries to form interconnected molecules of enterprise.

DIVING : Malaysia is fast becoming one of the leading dive destinations of the world with one of the richest marine environments in the Indo-Pacific Basin. The incredible bio-diversity of marine life, coupled with beautiful islands, white sandy beaches and clear warm waters, keeps divers coming back time and time again. Top dive sites around Malaysia include diverse underwater geography such as sloping reefs, coral blocks, wall dives, deep dives, drift dives and wreck dives. A dip below the warm sea’s surface guarantees you an astounding experience, with a concentration of vibrant and exotic marine life rarely rivalled anywhere else in the world. From schooling Hammerhead Sharks, to huge schools of barracudas and various species of turtles, to the bizarre Frogfish and Ghost Pipefish, there is always something fascinating awaiting you. It’s no exaggeration to say that almost every time a marine bio-diversity survey is conducted in Malaysia’s tropical seas, the species list increases!

MALAYSIA INFORMATION :

Multiculturalism has not only made Malaysia a gastronomical paradise, it has also made Malaysia home to hundreds of colourful festivals. It’s no wonder that we love celebrating and socialising. As a people, Malaysians are very laid back, warm and friendly.

Geographically, Malaysia is as diverse as its culture. There are two parts to the country, 11 states in the peninsula of Malaysia and two states on the northern part of Borneo. Cool hideaways are found in the highlands that roll down to warm, sandy beaches and rich, humid mangroves.

One of Malaysia’s key attractions is its extreme contrasts. Towering skyscrapers look down upon wooden houses built on stilts, and five-star hotels sit several metres away from ancient reefs.

For the perfect holiday full of surprises, eclectic cultures and natural wonders, the time is now, the place is Malaysia.

* Further information on the country can also be obtained from the Malaysian government’s official portal, www.malaysia.gov.my .

People

Having had an interesting past and being a part of the international spice route many hundreds of years ago, Malaysia has turned into a mosaic of cultures. Everything from its people to its architecture reflect a colourful heritage and an amalgamated culture. To understand Malaysian culture, you must first get to know its people.

DISCOVER A LAND OF INTRIGUING DIVERSITY

Malays, Chinese, Indians and many other ethnic groups have lived together in Malaysia for generations. All these cultures have influenced each other, creating a truly Malaysian culture.

The largest ethnic groups in Malaysia are the Malays, Chinese and Indians. In Sabah and Sarawak, there are a myriad of indigenous ethnic groups with their own unique culture and heritage.

MALAY
Today, the Malays, Malaysia’s largest ethnic group, make up more than 50% of the population. In Malaysia, the term Malay refers to a person who practices Islam and Malay traditions, speaks the Malay language and whose ancestors are Malays. Their conversion to Islam from Hinduism and Theravada Buddhism began in the 1400s, largely influenced by the decision of the royal court of Melaka. The Malays are known for their gentle mannerisms and rich arts heritage.

CHINESE
The second largest ethnic group, the Malaysian Chinese form about 25% of the population. Mostly descendants of Chinese immigrants during the 19th century, the Chinese are known for their diligence and keen business sense. The three sub-groups who speak a different dialect of the Chinese language are the Hokkien who live predominantly on the northern island of Penang; the Cantonese who live predominantly in the capital city Kuala Lumpur; and the Mandarin-speaking group who live predominantly in the southern state of Johor.

INDIAN
The smallest of three main ethnic groups, the Malaysian Indians form about 10% of the population. Most are descendants of Tamil-speaking South Indian immigrants who came to the country during the British colonial rule. Lured by the prospect of breaking out of the Indian caste system, they came to Malaysia to build a better life. Predominantly Hindus, they brought with them their colourful culture such as ornate temples, spicy cuisine and exquisite sarees.

INDIGENOUS ETHNIC GROUPS

Orang Asli
Orang Asli is a general term used for any indigenous groups that are found in Peninsular Malaysia. They are divided into three main tribal groups: Negrito, Senoi and Proto-Malay. The Negrito usually live in the north, the Senoi in the middle and the Proto-Malay in the south. Each group or sub-group has its own language and culture. Some are fishermen, some farmers and some are semi-nomadic.

SARAWAK

Collectively known as the Dayaks, the Iban, Bidayuh and Orang Ulu are the major ethnic groups in the state of Sarawak. Dayak, which means upstream or inland, is used as a blanket term by the Islamic coastal population for over 200 tribal groups. Typically, they live in longhouses, traditional community homes that can house 20 to 100 families.

Iban
The largest of Sarawak’s ethnic groups, the Ibans form 30% of the state’s population. Sometimes erroneously referred to as the Sea Dayaks because of their skill with boats, they are actually an upriver tribe from the heart of Kalimantan. In the past, they were a fearsome warrior race renowned for headhunting and piracy. Traditionally, they worship a triumvirate of gods under the authority of Singalang Burung, the bird-god of war. Although now mostly Christians, many traditional customs are still practised.

Bidayuh
Peace-loving and easy-going, the gentle Bidayuh of Sarawak are famous for their hospitality and tuak or rice wine. Making their homes in Sarawak’s mountainous regions, they are mostly farmers and hunters. In their past headhunting days, their prized skulls were stored in a ‘baruk’ a roundhouse that rises about 1.5 metres above the ground. Originally animists, now most of them have converted to Christianity.

Orang Ulu
Also known as upriver tribes of Sarawak. Forming roughly 5.5% of Sarawak’s population, there are over 100,000 different Orang Ulu tribes. Arguably Borneo’s most artistic people, their large longhouses are ornately decorated with murals and superb woodcarvings; their utensils are embellished with intricate beadwork; and aristocratic ladies cover their bodies with finely detailed tattoos.

SABAH

The largest indigenous ethnic groups of Sabah’s population are the Kadazan Dusun, the Bajau and the Murut.

Kadazan Dusun
The largest ethnic group of Sabah, the Kadazan Dusuns form about 30% of the state’s population. Actually consisting of two tribes; the Kadazan and the Dusun, they were grouped together as they both share the same language and culture. However, the Kadazan are mainly inhabitants of flat valley deltas, which are conducive to paddy field farming, while the Dusun traditionally lived in the hilly and mountainous regions of interior Sabah.

Bajau
The second largest ethnic group in Sabah, the Bajaus make up about 15% of the state’s population. Historically a nomadic sea-faring people that worshipped the Omboh Dilaut or God of the Sea, they are sometimes referred to as the Sea Gypsies. Those who chose to leave their sea-faring ways became farmers and cattle-breeders. These land Bajaus are nicknamed ‘Cowboys of the East’ in tribute to their impressive equestrian skills, which are publicly displayed in the annual Tamu Besar festival at Kota Belud.

Murut
The third largest ethnic group in Sabah the Muruts make up about 3% of the state’s population. Traditionally inhabiting the northern inland regions of Borneo, they were the last of Sabah’s ethnic groups to renounce headhunting. Now, they are mostly shifting cultivators of hill paddy and tapioca, supplementing their diet with blowpipe hunting and fishing. Like most indigenous tribes in Sabah, their traditional clothing is decorated with distinctive beadwork

Welcome to Champasak Province, the southernermost province of Laos, a place also known as the “Emerald Triangle” being the crossroad between Laos, Thailand and Cambodia, the newest travel destination in Indochina where it is still possible to see and feel the genuine lifestyle and natural beauty of this enigmatic Country. Our vision is to provide our guests with a comfortable, intimate experience with exotic nature in a unique environment such as in the northern wetlands of the Xe Pian NPA (Natural Protected Area) which is one of the most actractive of all of the NPAs scattered throughout the Laotian territory. We endeavour to do this in a way that is environmentally and socially responsible . Our ultimate goal is to meet the expectations of travellers looking for a different kind of tourism, by searching new feelings and reflections by experiencing unique and relaxing events like staring at a bright night stars parading in the tropical sky or just watching elephants and water buffalos grazing in slow motion while a far away flock of white birds plays in the distant blue skies of Laos.
New sounds, new sights and new lifestyles will be experienced daily and can be added to your life’s knowledge of different lands and people… in a relaxed way just as relaxed as the rhythms of these place, where time is not yet a precious commodity and simple people still find a way to look inside as much as outside of themselves.
