One of the most exciting additions to any ultra-luxe Asia itinerary is a helicopter jaunt, one of the signature touches to our bespoke holidays at Remote Lands. The bird’s-eye view from a chopper offers a thrilling complement to terra firma touring, whether it’s a new appreciation of the man-made wonders of Angkor or the natural splendors of Phuket’s turquoise waters and dramatic karst formations.
Aside from the sightseeing benefits, as a mode of transit, helicopters first and foremost can shave hours off arduous drives. They open up remote destinations that are otherwise inaccessible or often bypassed (think the rugged beauty of Sapa, Vietnam or the verdant tea country of Sri Lanka). And they allow day trips where you can return to your hotel of choice rather than overnighting in lesser accommodation.
