Our team of Travel Specialists regularly visit A&K destinations. Working with our global network of local offices, we seek out new experiences, accommodation options and map out the best itinerary flow to ensure we offer a travel experience that is second to none.

Recently returned from exploring Jordan, Bhutan and Myanmar, A&K’s Amanda Karcher, Lisa Burke and Sarah Dimopoulos share their favourite moments.

Amanda Karcher in Jordan

"Petra was astonishing, walking through the kilometre long chasm, the walls of which soar 200 meters to the most famous monument, the Treasury. It appears dramatically at the end of the Siq and is only one of the myriad archaeological wonders to be explored at Petra."

Our suggested journey: Highlights of Jordan

Lisa Burke in Bhutan

"A trek to the iconic Tiger’s Nest, Bhutan’s most famous monastery is an absolute highlight. Clinging to sheer cliffs, this is a sacred site in the Buddhist world and a steep yet rewarding hike with beautiful scenery and views across the Paro valley."

Our suggested journey: Himalayan Explorer

Sarah Dimopoulos in Myanmar

"The experience of sipping French champagne while being rowed in a little two person boat to watch the magnificent sunset at the U Bein Bridge, the longest and oldest teak bridge in the world, is unforgettable."
