Get Social: Big Southeast Asia

Trip Overview

TRIP VIBE = fast-paced fun with tons of socialising, bucket-list sights and good times all round. Eye-popping sights. Paradisical beaches. Mad-crazy cities. Tasty AF food. Calling this corner of the world epic would be an understatement. And why waste time choosing one Southeast Asian country when you can see three? We’re going big (and we mean REAL big) with this jam-packed adventure full of fun, culture and all-round good times. Ready for the most in-CREDIBLE month of your life? We’re waiting.

Worth noting…
New trip alert! Book one of our first departures and you’ll get a sweeeet price. FYI for trips departing on 13 Apr 2024 and 26 Oct 2024, you’ll be cruising overnight in Halong Bay on Day 2 instead. Day 3 will be spent exploring Hanoi. Wanna experience Koh Phangan’s legendary Full Moon Party? Grab a space on our 1 June 2024, 26 Oct 2024 or 22 Mar 2025 departures. You'll even get a one-way transfer to the party included. Nice!

Trip itinerary

  1. Hanoi (Vietnam)


    Blaring horns. French Colonial buildings. Picturesque lakes. And the smell of incense in the air. Welcome to historic Hanoi! We’ll be kicking off the fun in Vietnam’s second-biggest city. Say xin chao (sin chow) to your travel buddies and then head to a local eatery to gorge on goodies like bánh mì, pho, spring rolls and egg coffee – trust us, it’s tasty. Then: make a beeline for Bai Hoi (aka Beer Corner). No need to guess how this place got its name. Pull up a roadside stool and get to know your crew a bit better over a few cold ones. This is gonna be good.
