What to Expect from an Off the Beaten Track Tour

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.


For the bold, off the beaten track tours take you on an exciting journey to Asia’s hidden treasures, to places mercifully preserved from mass tourism.<br/><br/>


We use reliable and friendly local guides to ensure your safety and enjoyment on these rugged adventures to the most beautiful undiscovered corners of Asia.


Big smiles, surprised looks, and probing questions greet you in every tiny community, tribal village, and countryside temple.
