We sell what we know and we know what we sell.
Since 1992, when Global Spectrum was founded
to focus on Viet Nam, this region of the world has experienced profound
growth and subsequent change. As I reflect on my own visual journeys
through the years, I am struck by the truth of the old saying,
le plus ca change... le plus c1est
la meme chose
Some of these changes (luxury hotels, cell phones,
and acceptance of credit cards) greatly benefit the tourism industry
and intrepid travelers who visit. At the same time, the essential
nature of the region remains the same; overwhelming natural beauty,
the enduring culture and traditions, and especially the welcoming
smiles and genuine hospitality of the people. These are some of the
things that draw me back year after year.
(the more things change... the more they stay the same).
In addition to our trademark Viet Nam programs,
we now offer tours to Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Indonesia.
While the countries of Southeast Asia share common bonds of tradition
and hospitality, and their histories often overlap, each offers
a unique cultural experience.
As we begin a new millennium, my hope is that the
programs we offer will entice more travelers to explore this fascinating
region, either as a participant on one of our scheduled tours or
on a customized tour. My promise to you is that, no matter which
itinerary you choose, we at Global Spectrum will work with you to
ensure that your investment of time, energy, and money is rewarded
with an experience that will, for a short time or for a lifetime,
give you the perspectives on the world, its people, and your relation
Please note that while our tours willingly embrace
the advances that benefit the industry, we have always remained
loyal to our village friends and families, established partners,
and humanitarian programs. We do this through our private Match
Grant donations and volunteer opportunities through our Global
Community Service Projects, the philanthropic arm of Global
Spectrum. We are particularly proud that we are able to return to
our host countries some of the respect and commitment that they
I invite you to come travel with us on one of our
Asian Passages. A journey with Global Spectrum is an opportunity
for a life enhancement experience ..... And nobody does it better,.
.....that is my personal guarantee!
