ORIENTAL JOURNEY OVERVIEWVietnam Explorer, Thaiventure & Bali Discovery (46 Days)

Do you dream of jumping on a plane and landing in paradise? Have you missed the feeling of fresh sand between your toes and glorious sunshine on your skin? Do you want to trek to new heights, paddle through waterfalls and witness the sun rising up from the top of a mountain? If that sounds like you, (which we think it does) then join us on this backpacking trip of a lifetime, and make those dreams a reality as we take on the VIETNAM EXPLORER, BALI DISCOVERY and THAIVENTURE tours!

Please note that the ORDER of the tours may vary, so please contact us at info@lbwtravel.com or 1-888-749-3747 to confirm the order of the tours prior to booking.

Vietnam Explorer

Vietnam is, in a word, exotic. Our tour reflects this nation of great variety and contrast. Jump off the beaten trail and climb the mountainside tiered rice paddies, relax on a white sandy beach, sail the emerald waters of Halong Bay, rappel down sparkling waterfalls and navigate the crowded streets of Ho Chi Minh City. With over 90 million people and 36 million motorbikes, Vietnam is moving fast in more ways than one. Grab your backpack and tour this ever-evolving nation now!

Bali Discovery

Would you like to experience a little bit of heaven? Our all new Bali Discovery tour is filled with moments you would normally dream of! Witness the crystal clear water with your own eyes, feel the adrenaline rush through your body as you surf your first wave, make memories that'll be pages in your diary you have to read over and over again just to be sure it actually happened. From cooking up an Indonesian feast to hiking through the clouds to Mount Batur, expand your taste buds and break down your boundaries as we take on a backpacking adventure of a life time...

Thaiventure

Our Thaiventure tour is for people that want to experience as much of Thailand as possible in 19 days. From the famous Full Moon Party to our Ethical Elephant Experience, we’ve tailored the tour to maximize your travel experience and ensure no moment of the trip is wasted. Relax, kayak and snorkel on the white beaches of Thailand's eastern islands. Capture the views from the top of a waterfall then swim in its emerald pools. Party all day and all night, if you feel inclined. From Bangkok to the eastern Thai islands and back through the mainland, we will introduce you to the highlights of this beautiful country.

Important Information Regarding Flights:

The connecting flight between these above locations is NOT included in the package price. The tour price is simply just the combination of the two land-only tour packages, however, if you choose to book flights through LBW then we will be sure to book any necessary flights for your trip. See more details regarding the different tour packages below.

We currently offer to include round-trip airfare departing from any location; if your location isn’t listed, select ‘other' during your sign-up according to your region, and include your requested departure city in the comments box. We offer to book flights on your behalf to provide a smooth trip for you, but you are more than welcome to book your own flights, in which case you would select a ‘land only’ tour. 

The difference in price between the land only cost of the tour, and your package price for the round-trip flights + tour option, is your flight allowance. If the cost of your flight is more than the flight allowance, then that difference will be communicated to you prior to booking the flights, which will then be added to your invoice and booked only after receiving your confirmation. Over the period of the Chinese New Year and during the months of July, August & December, flights tend to increase in cost substantially, so there will most likely be an additional flight fee to fly during those times; however, please keep in mind that flights fees can occur at any time of the year because the aviation industry tends to have erratic pricing.

If booking a tour within 1 month of departure, and are requesting flights, please contact us ahead of time as we may not be able to book flights on your behalf in that timeframe, but will be able to offer you an alternative solution.

Please note that due to time zones and travel time, flight departures are normally 1 day prior to the trip start date. In addition, the order of the individual tours within this combo may vary, depending on the scheduling. Please check with us if you have any questions regrading any of our combo tours.

Seasonal Pricing is in effect for select tours, please see our FAQ for more information.
