Here’s our pick of Explore’s best new trips – which one would you choose?

South East Asia – but not as you’d know it

Laos is one of South East Asia’s least-visited countries, and a week here is just enough to get under the skin of this fascinating landlocked country. Travel from the sleepy capital of Vientiane to the riverside town of Vang Vieng, dwarfed by towering limestone cliffs. Along the way you’ll visit UNESCO-listed cities, view monks collecting sunrise alms and discover the beautiful blue waterfalls of Kuang Si – all in eight magical days.

Off-beat Eastern Europe

Your first choice for a short break might not immediately make you think of Eastern Europe, but consider the Soviet history, rolling countryside and fascinating rural traditions of Belarus. Over five days you can discover Minsk’s irrepressible Soviet history and contrasting vibrant street art; the grand castles of Mir and Nesvizh; and the farming techniques and musical heritage of the countryside, where traditional techniques remain.

Exploring the ‘orchard of Spain’ on two wheels

You’ve heard of Andalucia, the region of southern Spain with whitewashed houses, olive groves and towering mountains, but have you heard of Murcia? Set between Valencia and Andalucia on the southern coast, the region is famous for its beautiful scenery – think endless orchards of peaches and apricots, cycle paths along flat green lanes and Moorish towers. Explore the region’s history and enjoy the pleasant weather as you pedal.

Estrecho de la Encarnacion – Alex Rodier

Go beyond the Golden Triangle

If you’ve already visited India’s magnificent Golden Triangle and want to explore more of the country, the route between Delhi and Mumbai offers the chance to see some more incredible sights in a short time. View tigers at Ranthambore National Park, meet the indigenous communities of Polo Forest, discover Udaipur – the ‘city of lakes’ – and get to know Mumbai’s chaotic sprawl and vibrant slums.

Humayan’s Tomb, Delhi

Safari, lakes and beaches

Discover the very best of Tanzania while avoiding the crowds on a safari through the Serengeti’s quiet and untamed Western Corridor. The waterways and channels of Little Okavango on the shores of Lake Victoria offer a different dimension to your safari, before uncovering the rivers, lakes and swamps of Selous Game Reserve, Africa’s largest. Round off your trip with a few days relax on the white sand beaches of Zanzibar.
