Preventing the plunder of Asean’s heritage

As private wealth grows, protecting the world's cultural assets, including those from South-east Asia, grows more challenging.

This continues despite there being both international agreements and national laws intended to…

Travelling Vietnam

Vietnam is a country rich in history and breathtakingly beautiful scenery, which will always make it a popular country for those backpacking in South East Asia. However, journeys in Vietnam are not something to be admired. The first clues were there once we arrived at Hanoi airport.
