SOUTH EAST ASIA 14 south east asia At dawn in the Mekong Delta a floating market echoes to the call of the vendors above the lapping of the water. Orange- robed monks walk through the temples of Angkor where huge stone faces look out across the jungle. Off the white sand beaches of Thailand you can float in a jade- green sea warm as bathwater. Waves of jasmine and incense waft through the shrine at Borobudur. Screeching wildlife fill the rainforests of Borneo and the beat of tribal dance resounds through Papua New Guinea. South East Asia is unforgettable.
