Off the beaten track

Our ‘Off the beaten track’ tours showcase some of the more adventurous journeys that are possible in Asia, and also areas which have recently opened up. Typically the hotels featured in these tours are locally-owned in the towns and cities, with some unique lodges and quirky accommodation in more remote areas. These itineraries do not always include the classic highlights so will appeal to return visitors, and can be a useful reference point when planning an in-depth bespoke trip.
