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.

Amazing trip, I loved every minute! The walk and views were incredible, and went beyond my expectations! Be prepared for a lot of stairs both uphill and downhill, it can be quite tough on the knees.
