Tydeman loves sending clients to the remote Bawah Reserve, in Indonesia, and the jungle-shrouded beaches and blissful resorts on the Cambodian coast. He is also forecasting renewed interest in Myanmar among Americans; he’s a fan of the country’s under-the-radar Wa Ale island in the Mergui Archipelago. “I arranged a six-day, five-night cruise there,” he recalls. “The archipelago has more than 800 islands, including Wa Ale, making up a lost paradise that offers pristine snorkeling, deserted beaches, and remote communities of the Moken people,” Tydeman says.

The rest of the trip included “remote trekking through the northern mountains of Vietnam into Laos and over-landing through areas dotted with villages, tiered rice paddies, and traditional tribal markets. It was an extensive five week tour through Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, and Myanmar, taking in the main cultural, historical, and scenic highlights of this diverse and colorful region,” he says, adding that the clients were, naturally, thrilled. “Rather than ticking off all the boxes in each country, I focused on unique areas and experiences to make sure the whole trip had variety and diversity.”
