Asia & Fiji

Welcome To

Asia & Fiji

‘Asia’ in two words is Backpacker Heaven! With the countries being so close together, you may imagine that they are very similar…… that would be very incorrect. Every country has its own charm and culture, mouth-watering foods, and treasures to boast. From Angkor Wat city of temples to Palawan, voted #1 island in the world!

Thailand

Fancy having a tropical paradise on your travels? Want white beaches, turquoise waters, palm trees and a cold Pina Colada in your hand? Who doesn’t!

Maybe you want to mix this part of Thailand up and immerse yourself in their culture, visit the spectacular temples, meet the locals who understand why Thailand is known as the “Land of Smiles”.

With Thailand being so well connected to other neighboring countries, and the abundance of natural beauty is has to offer, there is no wonder it’s a main hub for travelers.

Enjoy the hustle and bustle of crazy Bangkok. Great to see. Then relax the next day in your own lake-hut in a luscious national park.

Of course you also want to check out the tropical islands. So what better way to start the day than by jumping into crystal clear waters and snorkeling, concluding with a night party on the beach at the full moon? Experience what you have always dreamed of.

Bali

Wake up wake up! It’s time for lush green tropical jungles, experiencing one of the best sunrises ever.    Overlooking the clouds on top of the Volcano, or if you are feeling super lazy roll out of bed and tan on the beautiful white beach in front of you.. Ok you’re not there yet, but you can dream!

Bali is also known for its iconic rice paddies, beaches, temples and coral reefs.

If you want something a little special, just google the Gili  Islands. This place, is like going back to the 1700s. Why you ask? Simply because there are no motorised vehicles allowed here. The only way to get around is by push bike or donkey and cart! Which makes it paradise.

Let us help at getting the highlights in your trip, so you don’t miss out on coming face to face with the monkeys at monkey forest, making friends with turtles or catching your first wave surfing.

Whether it’s all of the above, or a week island hopping learning to surf.  ‘Tropical Turtle’ will arrange the absolute best travel for you

Philippines

Want to see the voted 10 best islands in the whole entire world!? Of course you do. Well did you know that the Philippines has 3 three of them? No wonder its becoming more popular by the day. The Philippines is one of those places which still has many untouched areas not affected by tourism. Which is why we love it. So get there soon.

There are over 7,000 islands in the Philippines. Palawan (voted the best island in the world) is described as “the single most beautiful place in the world”. With stunning limestone cliffs and caves, verdant mountains, and spectacular diving, its appeal is as clear as its turquoise waters.

Fancy waking to a sunrise on your own private beach? Now trust us, that is a pinch yourself moment right there. Or perhaps get away for the sun for a bit, listen to the silence and discover the Underground River and caves, stretching for 24km.  The Philippines is not complete without the beauty of its people and of course the local delicacies!

Sri Lanka and the Maldives

Want to go somewhere off the beaten track? Not travelled by many? Untouched by mass tourism? Head to Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka is certainly different with the aroma of spices, teas and traditional foods that will enliven the senses.

Sri Lanka is not complete without experiencing train travel. The train journey from Nuwara Eliya to Ella dubbed as the “best journey in the world” with a 180 degree view of tea plantations, waterfalls, lakes and local villages on the edge of the mountain side.

Sri Lanka is famed for its ancient Buddhist ruins, including the 5th-century citadel Sigiriya, with its palace and frescoes. Sigiriya rock is referred to as the “eighth wonder of the world” and it’s easy to see why.

If wildlife and nature are your strongest interests when traveling? We advise a once in a lifetime experience.  A safari where you can search for elephants, buffalo, crocodiles, monkeys, eagles and if you are fortunate enough, see leopards!

Add on the Maldives maybe?

The Maldives are one of those honeymoon-like destinations that people spend thousands just travelling to!

They are made up of more than 1,000 coral islands and are one of the honeymoon-like destinations that you always dreamed of and thought you couldn’t afford. Well it is possible. With it being on the doorstep of Sri Lanka, why would you not add it onto your trip?

Vietnam

Ever think why would you do all the South East Asian countries? Surely they are all quite similar? Well we are asked this question a great deal. The truth is they are all very different from each other. They all offer different culture, sights and cuisine.. Especially Vietnam, oh the food! Each stop over in Vietnam alone is completely different to another.

Check out the cute town of Hoi An known for its tailor made suits and its magical lights at night. Maybe take a traditional Dragon “junk” boat and sail around the majestic islands of Halong Bay, an experience you will never forget.

Ever been to a floating market? Well head to the Mekong Delta, a unique place to discover and experience a taste of real Vietnamese rural life. Visit the Cu Chi tunnels perhaps.

Like working on your tan? Then in a hammock, with a beer, playing volleyball later and an overnight stay all on a private island.

Vietnam is truly a blend of everything a backpacker wants.

Cambodia

One of the most spectacular sunrises in the world? Well, the negative it getting up early in the morning (unless you’re a morning person of course), the positive is you will experience the sunrise at Angkor Wat. If you imagine a lost city in the middle of a jungle, with temples and ruins from a mystical time, this is what you have. Time will stand still when the morning light hits the magical temples, you will be mesmerised . You will never forget this image.

Would you like to understand Cambodia, its culture and its dark history? You should also visit the S-21 prison and the killing fields. A chilling experience that you will find hard to imagine was only 40 years ago.

I’m guessing you also want tropical beaches, white sand and maybe a place to party? Then Sihanoukville and its neighbouring islands are the place to be.

Something to add to the list that you will never forget are the people of Cambodia. They will leave a mark on you forever. The kindness, the smiles on their faces and happiness that glows around them is inspirational.

Japan

Japan is in a league of its own and one of the most up and coming places to visit in the traveler’s world. This is a land of culture, spectacular food, majestic mountains and neon lights guaranteed to blow your mind!

The breathtaking beauty of Mount Fuji, Japans most famous mountain. Try Saki and eat as the locals do. Step back in time whilst you walk through the ancient temples and be engulfed in the fascinating history that this country has to offer.

It really is a place where old meets new when you take a night stroll through the electric city, showing off Japans technological advances. Then find your inner peace and tranquility at the shrines and temples in Kyoto or the bamboo forests of Arashiyama.

Japan will leave you with a new found sense of wonder like no other.

Fiji

Ultimate relaxation, in absolute paradise, in probably the happiest place on earth? Then what are you waiting for! Fiji is yet another dream destination. It is so far away from anywhere else and  in the middle of the South Pacific, it would be crazy not to add this onto your around the world trip if you are so close to Australia or New Zealand.

Have you ever watched the film,’ Castaway’ with Tom Hanks? Well, this was filmed in Fiji.. Why not visit it by spending the day on a sailing boat in the sunshine, visiting deserted islands and snorkeling the beautiful South Pacific reefs?  Immerse yourself in the Fijian culture, visit traditional villages and drink ‘Cava’ with the locals.

There are different styles and time frames to suit your needs making it affordable to everyone. Sit back, relax and have your trip planned or have full flexibility of island hopping. The choice is yours.
