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!

Full Moon Intro

This all-new tour will let you explore three of Thailand's most popular destinations - Bangkok, Koh Tao and Koh Phangan. Party on the streets of Bangkok and get your fix of Thai buckets, top up your tan on the golden beaches of Koh Tao and stomp your feet until you can stomp no more at the world famous Full Moon Party in Koh Phangan! Thailand is not a stop to miss from your backpacking adventure!

Additional Information: Our Full Moon Intro section of the tour is set to travel alongside our Thaiventure & Treasures Of Thailand tours. With this being said, on occasions some departures will be running independently. To check if your departure is travelling alongside another, please feel free to contact us via the website chat.

Please note: If the last tour in your combo is the Full Moon Intro, your tour will end on the island of Koh Phangan, so it is up to you as a traveller to book transportation (ferry & short flight) back to Bangkok to catch your flights home or to your next travel destination! We recommend booking your international flights home for the day after the tour ends, to allow yourself to time to get from the island to Bangkok. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or need help making your booking!

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.
