All Points East is an independent UK based specialist travel company. We offer genuinely small group, family and tailor made escorted tours to South East Asia. The company was established in 1999 by brother and sister Mark Ord and Lesley Schofield who still run the company and offer a high level of personal service from their respective offices in Thailand and the UK.
Our tours visit Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Burma (Myanmar), Vietnam, Malaysia and Borneo, Sri Lanka and China. Our goal is to produce unusual, original and quality tours at reasonable prices with an emphasis on off the beaten track destinations with a strong commitment to responsible travel.
Our tours are designed to appeal to those wishing to discover the real South East Asia and dig beneath the surface. Singles, couples, families - old or young - and anyone with an adventurous spirit will enjoy our style of travel. An in-depth knowledge of the region enables us to offer original itineraries with a balance between the region's better known 'must sees' and its well kept secrets. Our tours will provide a real insight into the countries you are visiting - the culture, history, landscape and natural world. They allow opportunities for genuine interaction with local people and communities.
It is important to us that wherever possible, we stay in small locally run family style accommodation, eat in local restaurants and use local style transport. All agencies and guides used are considered friends rather than 'business contacts'. The idea being that you will visit South East Asia as guests rather than tourists. Respect for local people, their cultures, traditions, religions and environment are essential to our philosophy and we work hard to ensure our groups have a positive impact on the places and people visited.
