How far will $1 get you in Cambodia, Thailand & Vietnam
There are SO MANY hot deals going for travel all over Asia right now with Air Asia flying to Kuala Lumpur starting at just $222 to Intrepid Travel’s epic no strings attached $1 deposits* on small group and short break adventures!
Asia has so much to offer up from taking in the sights and sounds of Ho Chi Minh City; winding along the Mekong Delta; travelling via bus through small villages in Cambodia; exploring the energetic city of Phnom Penh and so much more. Intrepid Travel’s tours are for travellers looking to do more than just scratch the surface of their destinations and instead put a magnifying glass to the world to experience genuine travel moments.
Such magical moments are achieved via a range of factors; they only operate small group tours (their average size is just 10 people), they provide as much freedom as possible, they incorporate all the weird and wonderful transport options each country has to offer and they stay at a wide range of accommodation from hilltop monasteries to family run hotels.
Only problem is that it’s for a super duper limited time only (Hurry offer ends 24th September 2017), so check out the trips on offer here, find out how far that dollar is gonna take you, and then chat to one of our party people (aka consultants) to get you on your way!
