“Our original plan was the Annapurna Circuit Hike in January. Unique Adventure informed us in advance about the possibility that Thorong La Pass might be closed due to too much snow and an increased avalanche danger. We tried anyway, started the Hike, but unfortunately the weather got worse. Our guide Raju, for whom the safety of his customers is the first priority, reacted very spontaneously and planned an alternative route, the Ghorepani Poonhill Hike and an extension of it south of the Annapurna Basecamp. The hike and the views were breathtakingly beautiful. Thanks to Raju, we learned a lot about the mountains, mountaineering and flora and fauna. As soon as there were problems he regularly asked about our situation and was always very helpful.

Once again a big thank you to the great organization. Should I return to Nepal, Unique Adventure would be my first point of contact.”

Asia - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

It can often seem difficult to know where to start when considering holidays in Asia. Don’t let the gigantic size of Asia intimidate you. With enough research and some careful planning, you can see the best that Asia has to offer. Take part in a traditional Japanese tea ceremony, conquer the Great Wall of China, bask in the glory of the Taj Mahal or wander through the bright lights during a night out in Bangkok.

Travel Highlights

  • Skip the souvenir shops and peruse some of the largest markets in the world. From street food to artisanal goods, Asia’s markets have it all like the Chatuchak market in Bangkok, which is one of the world’s largest weekend markets or the Sukawati art market in Bali. Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo offers some of the freshest sushi you’ll ever taste.
  • Explore your spirituality by practising yoga and meditation in Varanasi along the Ganges river or visit a Buddhist monastery in Tibet.
  • Stroll through the rice terraces of blissful Bali.
  • Explore Northern Thailand, Central Laos or Northern Vietnam on two wheelers with the wind in your hair.
  • Get glitzy in Almaty, Kazakhstan’s bustling bars, sophisticated shopping malls and mesmerising museums.
  • Experience an interesting mix of Catholic and indigenous tradition during the Philippines biggest mardis gras: Ati-Atihan festival in Kalibo which takes place on Shrove Tuesday of the Christian calendar.
  • Embark on one of the longest train journeys in the world: the Trans-Asian Railway through China, Korea, Mongolia, Russia and Kazakhstan.

Travel Tips

  • Whatever your mode of transport - whether it’s a tuk tuk or a taxi - always ask a local how much it should be beforehand and agree on a price before you take the ride.
  • Manners matter. In Thailand, food is often served with a fork and a spoon. The fork is only used to place food on the spoon and it is often seen as rude to put the fork in your mouth.
  • Always keep toilet paper or tissues with you, and hand sanitizer.
  • Perfect planning is never possible, and having some gaps in your schedule means you can take locals up on their superior suggestions for a day sightseeing.
  • While most countries in Asia use different currencies, having some spare USD will always be helpful. Some accommodations will charge in USD, for example.
  • A bout of stomach flu is normal for first time travellers in Asia. Stick to busy restaurants or food stalls where the locals go and you’ll be fine.
  • Watch what you wear. Most cultures are very accepting of visitors and their unusual get-up. But being respectful of the local culture will go a long way. In India, for example, covering arms and legs will be appreciated, and removing shoes before entering someone’s home will make you a few extra friends.
