You’ll never tire of backpacking Asia. If incredible food, breathtaking landscapes, and meeting locals are what you’re after, then backpacking around Asia with Contiki is a fantastic way to do it. It’s a place you shouldn’t just visit once, there is so much to discover and each country you visit offers such a unique experience. You can either choose to travel for a while and stretch your backpacking budget or plan to tick off a section at a time across multiple tours.

If you’re backpacking Asia alone, Contiki is the perfect choice because you’ll be travelling with other young like, minded travellers and we guarantee you’ll have the time of your life. You’ll soon discover that ‘solo’ travel can be far from solo.

Some of the best places to backpack in Asia are covered on Contiki’s Big Indochina Adventure tour. In this Asia itinerary, we tick off Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam. This tour offers amazing experiences, from the historical splendour of Angkor Wat to immersing yourself with local traditions by taking part in a sacred Loatian ritual, offering alms (food) to Buddhist monks. And if adventure is what you’re after we offer an amazing experience kayaking and caving in Van Vieng.

Backpacking India should be on everyone’s bucket list, from the hustle and bustle of the famed north to the relatively unknown and slow-paced south. You can experience the best of India by choosing to backpack on either of Contiki’s India Tours: Eternal India or Southern Spice.

No experience could be more culturally rich, diverse, and life-changing than backpacking through China. Contiki’s China Adventure tour offers you the chance to immerse yourself in the history of Beijing with a tour of the Forbidden City and a visit of the Ming Tombs, as well as the delight of a visit of a panda sanctuary in Chengdu.

Backpacking Asia will surely leave you breathless and shock the senses with its wonder. There is no better time to travel there than now!
