Spending five days in Kosovo as part of an Undiscovered Balkans tour, the 14-day itinerary takes in the unspoilt north of Albania and Macedonia, as well as dramatic mountains and lakes, pretty valleys and towns, and Kosovo’s rejuvenated wine region.

The Philippines Discovery tour begins in Manila, and comprises a visit to the UNESCO-listed colonial quarter of coastal Vigan and a hike to the crater lake of Mount Pinatubo volcano, with the chance to relax on Coco Beach on the island of Mindoro.

The 13-day Highlights of Bangladesh group holiday visits the Lawachhara Forest in search of the distinct Hoolock gibbon, alongside the chaotic cities, markets, tea plantations and rivers that the country is famous for.
