We are so glad to know that you have enjoyed your trip to Indochina and that everything went smoothly. It was a big pleasure for us to organize your holiday. Thank you for your suggestion about the beaches, unfortunately, flight availability is a bit limited after the opening of the borders, as it takes time to reopen the routes, but hopefully, soon there will be more direct flights available, so it will be not the case. But we will consider offering other beach options for those who want to take the trip at a slower pace. Thank you again for trusting our company, and we hope to see you again! Realistic Asia team
