Extend your regular tour with a wide range of varied optional extensions
Here you’ll find a wide range of varied tour extensions which you can add before, after, or even on occasions during any of our regular tours. These stretch from a half-day, in the case of a cookery class, up to 5 or 6 days, or indeed for a beach or island extension – as long as you wish.
For those with time on their hands, it makes sense to optimise the cost of your flight by staying a few days longer, taking the opportunity to go off-piste and include some lesser-known sites or opt for some quality relaxation time, with a few days on one of Southeast Asia’s myriad tropical isles.
Below you will find our tried and trusted recommendations. If you can’t see exactly what you’re after, we’re open to suggestions and happy to help you find those perfect few extra days. Please also note that accommodation before and after your tour is easily arranged and can afford some welcome acclimatisation before the tour, or chill-out time, last-minute shopping or a spa session, before your return home.
Beach and Island Extensions
We’ve come up with a selection of island stays for Vietnam, Thailand and Malaysia, (including Borneo) plus options to Mui Ne Beach Vietnam and Ngwe Saung or Ngapali in Burma, (Myanmar). Vietnam’s Phu Quoc plus the various seasonal Thai options including Koh Chang and Koh Libong are also easily accessible from Laos and Cambodia. Other better-known island choices include the Maldives for our Sri Lanka tours and Bali or Lombok for Java.
Island and beach extensions will generally be unaccompanied and on a bed and breakfast basis.
As with island stays, not all city options are itemised below – (so you may have to ask) – but include Bangkok, UNESCO-listed Luang Prabang, Hanoi, Jakarta or Chiang Mai.
A variety of short, guided, mini-tours are also on offer, again before or after your tour, and include a 4-day Angkor programme, Thailand’s historic Lampang, a Halong Bay cruise, Borneo’s Danum Valley, a 3-day south Cambodia tour or 5-day trip to Vietnam’s picturesque Sapa region. Again, many more tour extensions are on offer and if you can think of something we’ve not included we’ll be more than happy to arrange it.
