2018: Year of the Brown Earth Dog

blog post

Considering a trip to Asia in 2018?

South East Asian travel is predicted to boom in 2017, with ample opportunities to explore Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and Burma at your leisure. Looking for a culinary tour along the Mekong? Or a family trip to the temples of Angkor Wat? Why not let us plan your ideal vacation to South East Asia in 2018?

2018 is the Year of the Dog in the Chinese Lunar Calendar Zodiac. Though the Year of the Dog comes around every 12 years, the Year of the Brown Earth Dog comes around every 60 years. According to Chinese philosophy, those born under this sign are romantic, loving, and loyal. They have excellent manners, work very hard, appreciate luxury and easily keep friends. Brown Earth Dogs tend to show great determination and attain the highest level of achievement. 

But you don’t have to be born in the Year of the Dog to enjoy the Lunar New Year in South East Asia! One of our trusted tour guides in SE Asia, VExplore Tours, holds a special scheduled New Year Tour each February. This tour can be a private one for two people or include a small group of like-minded travelers.
