Asia 18 to 35s tours

From the neon-lit chaos of Bangkok to Borneo’s misty mountains, Asia is an eternal backpacker’s favourite.

Whether you want to get your fill of sushi in the tiny bars of Tokyo, soak up some sun (and maybe a few Lion lagers) along the coast of Sri Lanka, or go kayaking around Cat Ba Island in Vietnam, there’s an Asian adventure waiting for you.

Intrepid 18 to 35s: South East Asia

Why choose us

The ultimate adventures

You can’t travel to India without swinging past the Taj Mahal but having a laugh with a chai wallah in a local market is just as memorable. That’s why we’ve included the big-ticket items, as well as plenty of free time.

Local leaders, local connections

Travelling with an experienced leader means you can just enjoy the moment, rather than worrying about when the last train leaves. They’ll also share stories and take you to places that only the locals know about.

Small (but not too small) groups

Our groups are made up of 10 travellers on average. That’s big enough to create a good vibe, but small enough to explore a destination independently. And if you’re travelling solo, it’s the perfect number of new friends.

A sustainable way to travel

We believe that travelling sustainably is important. Through our not-for-profit The Intrepid Foundation, we are committed to supporting projects around the world – from reducing carbon in the environment to supporting the livelihoods of local communities.

Stay real in cool places

We think where you lay your head at night can be just as cool as what you see during the day. Whether that be sleeping in a 17th-century Rajasthani castle or rocking to sleep with a bunch of locals on an overnight train in Vietnam.

Make your money go further

Want big-time experiences without the big-time price tag? Our 18 to 35s travel style means staying in simple, well-located accommodation, taking local transport and enjoying tasty local food, so you choose where your spending money goes.

Trip was fantastic overall, I loved our tour guide Thao and tour group, and there were many amazing locations to see and explore. The accomodation and trip information was average, and the trip was very fast paced, but I would still recommend the experience to anyone curious about it.

Such an amazing way to experience Cambodia. You see so much in a short amount of time, but never feel like any sight or location is rushed. Highly recommend the trip!

This is a great way to see Cambodia. Cities, island beaches, local communities… it’s all on this tour. Intrepid facilitates a lot of activities and stops that would not have been possible alone. Daro was an excellent guide. Highly recommend.
