Your dream trip starts here
Asia Travel With Topdeck
Maybe you’ve done the Europe-thing and want to delve deeper into a new and exotic destination. Maybe you’re obsessed with Japan’s one-of-a-kind culture; mesmerised by Bali’s island paradise; totally intrigued by Cambodia; or you’ve seen our new ‘Discover Sri Lanka’ trip and went ‘sh*t, that looks good’. The point is, our Asia trips give you more free time to do what YOU want to do. More opportunities to head off the tourist trail with a local Trip Leader. More awesome inclusions to immerse yourself in unique cultures and ancient traditions. More getting lost in the moment. Just, more.
Japan been your #1 for a while? This is your chance. From Tokyo to Kyoto, our Japan trips feat. jam-packed days of stuffing your face, exploring the ultra-modern and uncovering ancient traditions – not to mention all the weird, whacky and totally wonderful in between (Robot Restaurant, anyone?).
Bali = idyllic. Southeast Asia’s all-star is more than picture-perfect beaches and fruity cocktails (although, there’s plenty of both). From summit sunrises from magnificent Mount Batur, to sunsets over Gili Island paradise – our Bali Island Hopper is the gold standard of Asia holidays.
Itching to explore Cambodia and Vietnam? From the French colonial buildings of Hanoi to the picture-perfect beaches of Koh Rong – these are two of the most slap-you-in-the-face-unbelievable Southeast Asian countries you’ll ever experience. Trust us.
Then, they say you don’t travel India; you experience it. And our ‘Namaste India’ trip is no exception. Expect: awe-inspiring temples, ancient forts, flashy palaces, Bollywood films, sunset cruises and more chai, chaat and chicken tikka than you could dream of.
And if untouched natural scenery and pristine beachfronts are more your vibe – it’s time to meet the newest member of our Asia tours: Discover Sri Lanka.
Things to do in Asia
Explore Tokyo in-depth
Fascinating culture. Delicious food. And plenty of weird, whacky and wonderful top sights. There’s no better place to kick start your once-in-a-lifetime Japanese adventure than Tokyo. From exploring the mesmerising Sensō-ji Temple and quirky Akihabara district on an included city tour with your expert Trip Leader; to walking the famous Shibuya Crossing and visiting the incredible Meiji Shrine – you won’t be short of things to do in Tokyo. Mingle with the locals over sake. Put your tastebuds to the test along Omoide Yokocho (aka Piss Alley, don’t ask). Catch a show at the futuristic Robot Restaurant. Fan girl/boy over Mickey Mouse at Tokyo Disneyland. And gaze upon the snow-capped peaks and gleaming lakes of Mount Fuji. Whatever your thing, we’ve got Tokyo covered. Trust us.
An unforgettable Halong Bay cruise
Glittering emerald waters. Towering limestone cliffs. Tiny islands topped with tropical forests. Hidden caves waiting to be explored. There’s a reason they call Halong Bay the ‘jewel in Vietnam’s crown’. Venture from Hanoi to Halong Bay on day three of our Vietnam & Cambodia Explorer trip, and prepare for an overnight junk boat cruise to remember. We’re talking: plenty of swim stops in bluer-than-blue water, free time to kayak between hidden grottos and sandy beaches, soaking in our very own outdoor jacuzzi, saluting the sun with yoga on the upper deck and dancing into the sunset with a bunch of people just as stoked to be here as you are. This isn’t your standard Halong Bay cruise. This is your once-in-a-lifetime memory-maker.
Embrace Bali island life
As the name suggests – our ‘Bali Island Hopper’ is all about laid-back island adventures. Pristine beaches. Tropical rainforests. Underwater encounters. Plus the best sunrises and sunsets you’ve ever laid eyes on. Whether it’s exploring the boho streets of Seminyak, carving like a pro on a famous surf break, or sipping from coconuts at Canggu’s best beach clubs – you've got plenty of free time to soak up allll the top sights Bali island has to offer. Hop over to Gili Trawangan and prepare for sun-bleached sandy beaches, shimmering turquoise water and the best Bali snorkelling tour. And don’t even get us started on the picture-perfect rice fields and rolling rainforests of Ubud. Give us seven days and prepare to do island paradise properly with a small group of like-minded explorers just as stoked to be here as you.
Uncover the ‘Pink City’
Forget Googling ‘things to do in Jaipur’ – we’ve got this incredible city down to a T. Delve deeper and wander the extensive complex of colourful rooms and lush courtyards of Amber Fort. Embrace the Indian way of life with an authentic cooking class. Visit the incredible Jal Mahal: Jaipur’s city palace. Get the best angle of Hawa Mahal (your expert Trip Leader knows exactly where to go). And experience the real Bollywood at Jaipur’s most famous cinema – you never knew what OTT meant until this moment. Here for Holi Festival? We’ll celebrate like a proper resident – joining a local family to take part in rituals, street festivals and lively colour-filled parties. Time to embrace. it. all.

Itineraries with room to leave the tourist trail behind. More time to immerse yourself in the new and exotic. The BEST bases for your explorations.
