New Caledonia

New Caledonia seems totally cut-off from the world. An ensemble of islands and archipelagos, this French administrative region lies in the Coral Sea and the South Pacific. Multicultural and steeped in history, despite its modernisation this little corner of paradise retains many customs apparently immune to the passage of time.

Majuli

Lying in the Brahmaputra River, in the north-east of Assam, India, Majuli is the largest river island in the world. Known to few tourists, it offers a unique cultural mix like a colourful patchwork. Here serenity and tranquillity reign, despite the constant threat of erosion caused by the monsoon rains.
