In this twin set of seven-day scenarios, you'll give yourself an urban base to explore in-depth and from which to branch out into the regions.

The tiny sultanate of Brunei is just a remnant of a naval empire that once ruled all of Borneo and part of present-day Philippines. Nevertheless, this quiet darussalam (Arabic for 'abode of peace') boasts the largest oilfields in Southeast Asia.
Lebanon, a beautiful country that’s often overlooked when planning a holiday, should be on everyone’s bucket list in 2018. You simply won’t find delicious hummus (and Lebanese mezzes), Roman ruins, fun nightlife, stunning mountains and beaches, awe-inspiring mosques and churches, all in one place anywhere else in the world!
