Spotlight on Asia is an Australian company specialising in travel photography and small group photographic tours to Asia. With over 30 years of photographic experience as well as extensive experience in customer service, operations and project management, Spotlight on Asia strives to provide photographic tours that are uniquely specialised yet very affordable.
Unlike many other photographic tour companies, Spotlight on Asia designs the photographic tours from the ground up, with photography in mind. This however does not mean you need to be a photographer to enjoy the tour. The tours appeal to photographers and non-photographers alike. Working with carefully selected local and international tour companies, the tour programs are designed to ensure that the very best photographic opportunities are on offer, but without neglecting all the other joys of travel, such as culture and cuisine.
Vietnam was Spotlight on Asia's first love and will remain so for many years to come. With extensive experience from travelling numerous times to Vietnam as well as a good understanding of the culture and business, Spotlight on Asia is able to provide outstanding tours with inclusions not offered by other tour companies.
The Mekong River is one of the greatest in the world, so it was only natural that a tour would be introduced to explore the Mekong Delta region of Vietnam, then travelling into Cambodia to visit Phnom Penh, the Pearl of Indochina, before concluding with the extensive UNESCO World Heritage listed temples of Angkor.
Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) is a mystical country centred amongst South-East Asia's more common destinations, yet still remaining relatively unknown. Myanmar is one of the least developed and least Western-influenced countries in the world, providing many attractive and unique photographic opportunities. From ancient civilisations to the friendly and happy people, Myanmar promises to be a feast for the lens and is highly regarded as one of the best destinations in the world for travel photography.
Spotlight on Asia has recently released the first of a series of photographic tours to China. Yunnan is regarded as the most beautiful province in China, and is home to some of China's most impressive natural scenery. For those interested in landscape photography, Yunnan offers snow-capped peaks, deep gorges, lush jungles, crystalline alpine lakes, peaceful highland meadows and three of Asia's biggest rivers, the Mekong, Yangtze and Salween.
With many other amazing destinations on the horizon, now is the time to join a Spotlight on Asia photographic tour.
