Asia festival tours

Lantern-lit skies, bejewelled camels and the flying powders of Holi: grab (and water-proof) your camera, because Asia’s festivals are a visual banquet. Rooted in Buddhist and Hindu traditions and timed to the rhythms of the moon and stars, they are joyful celebrations of fortune, prosperity and new life. To join in Asia’s festivities is to feel part of something bigger than earthly ‘business as usual’. Plus, when else do you get to drench your grandma with a Super Soaker in the name of spiritual purification? Yes, we’re looking at you, Songkran.

Mongolia's Naadam Festival

Choong Wah · Traveled June 2023
Amazing trip. It showcases a country & culture that's unique, fun and deserves to be better known. Mongolians are big friendly people. Our enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide made sure we were immersed in the best possible way to appreciate the culture and share the best time with the people. A bit of rough travel, vegans come well-prepared. 5* and when done, you'll want more!

Mongolia during Naadam is like nowhere on Earth- the noise, colour and atmosphere needs to be seen to be believed!

Mongolia's Naadam Festival

Sandra · Traveled June 2023
Mongolia offers adventure, great landscapes and wonderful people unlike any other place. The festival was an amazing experience, a bit like an Olympic event, and the opening ceremony was really surprising, integrating both historic, current and future influences. Having been to the archers, wrestlers and horse camps at the start of the trip, they gave us an added insight into their cultural roots and current nomadic existence.

Mongolia's Naadam Festival

Sandra · Traveled June 2023
The Mongolia trip is an amazing experience. If you love huge landscapes, amazing scenery, wonderful people and a rich culture, then you need to see it to believe it. Our guide, who was local, was not only very knowledgeable and helpful, but also fun and his enthusiasm infectious. I only wished I'd had time to continue and join the Wild Mongolia trip after the amazing Nadam festival.
