The tour China & South East Asia Discovery starts from Bangkok and ends in Beijing. This is a trekking tour that takes 62 days. You will travel through Kunming, Vang Vieng, Chengde and 30 other destinations visiting Thailand, China and 2 more countries. This is a guided group tour. The tour includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Beijing to Bangkok overland does have a certain ring about it and this trip will not disappoint.

It takes in some of the greatest sites of China and South East Asia as well as visiting places

that most travellers never see. So if you want to see more than just the Great Wall, Pandas,

Three Gorges or the Terracotta Warriors, then you might consider this epic journey.

There are some great hikes on this trip, including climbing with all the pilgrims to the summit

temple of Emei Shan, or through the stunning “Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon”

landscapes of Wudan Shan, or hiking 2 days above the incomparable Tiger Leaping Gorge.

In Laos, we get to explore on foot the forests of the Nam Ha National Park and to see the

highlights of the Mekong, including the 4,000 islands.

But it’s the amazing architecture and religious buildings that will astound you along the way,

whether it’s the quiet beauty of Luang Prabang, the historic splendour of Angkor Wat or the

magnificence of the Forbidden City.

Travel Insurance

For this China & South East Asia Discovery tour getting the required visa(s) is the responsibility for each individual traveller, as visa requirements vary depending on your nationality. We recommend to check with your local embassies representing the countries that you are travelling to, as part of this itinerary.

Local Payment The local payment is a group fund, paid separately from the trip price on the first day of the tour. It covers everything that the group does together on the ground. This is primarily hotel accommodation and campsite fees, meals whilst camping (but not while eating in restaurants), and included activities and puts money directly back to the local community. The local payment, or kitty system, is unique to overlanding tours and provides maximum flexibility and best value on the road - you can see exactly what is being paid for, you get everything at cost price, it keeps costs competitive by leveraging group expenses and saves on administrative costs. The fund is run by the tour guide, and any excess left over at the end is returned equally to the group. Local prices are estimated in USD when we print the brochure then reviewed monthly as local costs and exchange rates vary throughout the year. It's therefore important once you book your trip to check the website regularly and just before departure for any changes to the amount.
