It is a land of pagodas and temples, rubies and pearls, tigers and elephants and more than 130 ethnic groups in an exotic landscape.

- Compared to similar itineraries promoted by our competitors, World Spree’s package tour features deluxe hotels in convenient locations. Unlike the other companies, the hotels we use have character with a central location. Though we want you to travel with an open mind and be adventurous in the daytime, we want you to have all the comforts of home in the evening: Great location, comfortable beds, good lighting, air conditioning, cable TV, power showers and delicious American buffet breakfasts to look forward to. The truth is that if we do not enjoy staying in a hotel, we don’t put our clients there. We choose the hotels for this itinerary as if we do it for ourselves.
- Our package tour includes a rowing boat trip on Inle lake- a photographer's dream; visit the monasteries to know more about the monks and Buddhism here.
- Our reasonably-priced tour does not have any pre-arranged shopping stops -- the "shopping traps" arranged by many North American tour operators to generate commissions that subsidize their low prices and underpaid service staffs. World Spree considers this practice unethical. We say NO to "shopping traps."
Do shop around and compare the different tours on the market, and you will be convinced that World Spree offers the best value to Indochina!
