Travel to Asia with your local travel agency specialised in tailor-made holidays.

The best way to immerse yourself in a country and learn the culture and traditions is, in our opinion, to live like a local. That includes staying in someone’s home, tasting the local cuisine and even being part of your host’s day to day life. During your trip to Asia discover the unconditional hospitality of the people as they welcome you with open arms into their home. You’ll feel at home even when you’re thousands of miles away from home.

A lifestyle refresh in Asia: your home away from home

Check out our suggested itineraries that include stays in homestays and guesthouses. We have chosen villages and communities in each of our destinations which will provide you with a true insight into local life. Holiday in the heart of the Indian Himalayas in Spiti, in the Annapurnas of Nepal, on the Burmese borders or with the forgotten tribes of Sumatra and Sulawesi in Indonesia. We’ll provide you with information as to how to minimise the negative impact of tourism to ensure proper distribution of income and the preservation of the lifestyles and traditions of the communities that you meet.

Thanks to our wealth of knowledge and expertise, we are able to organise these immersive trips for you that truly expose you to the country’s cultures and traditions in the most authentic way possible. Contact your Travel Expert in Asia today and organise your trip to Asia, to your home away from home.
