Browse our Off the Beaten Track Tours
Our off the beaten track tours are for the daring traveler. For those that leave the comfort of resorts for the thrill of the trail, our intrepid, unusual holidays include hiking tours through the tea plantations, temples, and volcanoes of Java, visits to remote monasteries and craft villages of Myanmar, and boat odysseys through the thick jungles of Cambodia and Vietnam. Wherever adventure calls you, our local Travel Specialists can help you explore the road less traveled.
Off the beaten track tours are about opening new trails. These unconventional holidays take you to the places few tourists see — the most remotest temples, the tiniest villages, and the least-trampled paradises. Getting there is half the fun. Go by boat, bike, winding mountain paths, and deserted country roads.
These unique Asia holidays take you far off the tourist circuit, from small islands off the Japanese coast and remote Chinese water towns to fascinating underground art galleries in Vietnam.
Bike between picturesque villages in the Cambodian countryside, hike up to volcanic hot springs in Sumatra, or sample authentic rural cuisine in the local markets of Myanmar.
