South East Asia is one of the most beautiful areas in the world to visit, but most people who travel to this paradise miss the very best that region has to offer. Staying in a five star hotel in Phuket will never give you the chance to experience Thailand, and travelling to Laos and not leaving Vientianne means you will miss the very best of the country.
Tours with Baktrax aim to show you more of SE Asia than just the most famous landmarks.
Sure, when you travel with us to Thailand we'll take you to see the sights in Bangkok, but we'll also take you to less well known places like Roi Et, Kalasin and Khon Kaen too for a real cultural experience had by few other tourists. When you come with us to Vietnam you'll visit Ha Long Bay, but we'll show you Tam Coc and Sapa too.
When trekking we use licensed local guides who grew up in the mountains and villages. These are local people who speak the local languages as well as English. These guides show you particular areas of cultural significance and will answer all your questions about the beliefs, history and politics of these fascinating cultures.
When it's time to eat we'll show you the best places to get great local food, and when we need somewhere to stay we go for smaller places with more character and charm than the concrete block hotels where most tourists are herded.
Welcome to Baktrax, a better way to travel in South East Asia.
