Welcome, we are

The Southeast Asia Tour and Travel Specialists

Corona/Covid-19 update

All Points East understands that people are highly reluctant, (or simply unable) to make any travel plans at present due to conflicting, (confusing) and constantly evolving information (and indeed misinformation).  However, we also appreciate how much everyone looks forward to their holidays and were thinking of ways to enable you to book a tour with more confidence. For the time being, then we’ve introduced a fully flexible booking system so, up to 30 days prior to any departure date your reservation will now be fully transferable in the event of Covid interrupting your plans – you can change to another tour or date with no charges – or your 10% deposit will be fully refundable.

Hope this helps you book with confidence and get excited once more about planning your future travels.

The situation and regulations in our destination countries vary considerably and may change at short notice but you can check (relatively) up-to-date information on the UK government’s FCO (foreign travel advice) site. Also note that you can receive regular updates by signing up ( for our newsletter.

Our upcoming tours section features trips we have a reasonable expectation of being able to deliver, with our above flexible booking system in place,  However, the situation can change rapidly and we offer of course no guarantees. (Fingers crossed!)


Self-guided tours

We’re currently working on updates to the site but keep your eye open soon for our new range of self-guided tours to Southeast Asia for 2021.  We’re kicking off with Sri Lanka, Thailand (north or south), Malaysia (Borneo) and Lao itineraries available for 2 persons and up with departure dates at your convenience. You can find further details of our ‘cunning plan’ in our recent travel blog post.


Back to our regular intro…

Our All Points East tours – either scheduled or tailor-made – are designed for those wishing to discover authentic Southeast Asia; singles, couples, families – old and young – anyone with an open mind and a sense of adventure!

Our in-depth knowledge of Indochina and over 20 years experience of organising tours throughout the region, enables us to offer original, varied and flexible itineraries with a balance between the region’s ‘must-sees’ and its ‘best-kept secrets’ and of comfortable accommodation and travel alongside local markets, authentic food and vibrant street-life.

Our Travel


Our aim is to combine optimum comfort levels with value for money. Where possible hotels are ensuite and air-con though bear in mind some places visited are seriously off the beaten track.


We like to include as much as makes sense; entrance fees, activities and most meals, ensuring a tour of regional cuisine as well as the sites, yet still allowing you time to do your own thing.


Genuinely small groups allow for flexibility in terms of scheduling, timing and detail of the itinerary; essential with off the beaten track destinations and the region's unpredictable weather.
