Busabout Launches 2019-20 Asia Program

Busabout has launched its new Asia 2019-20 program featuring a selection of new trips and bucket list experiences.

With a maximum group size of 28, Busabout’s Asia program offers a variety of trips for different tastes and budgets, plus the opportunity to experience all trips in the brochure, linked up via the “Unlimited Asia Pass.”

Following the success of Busabout’s Hop-on Hop-off model in Europe, the adventure company will launch its freestyle form of travel in North America for the first time in May 2019. Busabout has also been expanding its trips in Asia over the past four years and introduced the “Unlimited Asia Pass” to the program this past season.

The new three-day Bangkok to Kwai Adventure is the perfect guided mini break which FIT clients can incorporate into their existing travel plans, or combine with another Busabout trip (such as the seven-day Thailand Adventure). Starting and ending in Bangkok, Busabout travellers will travel via private van and river boat with a local Busabout Guide to visit popular attractions surrounding the city that are not so easy to navigate solo in a short time frame. This includes attractions like the Damnoen Suduak Floating Market, the Meklong Train Market (where a train drives through the middle of the local market 11 times each day), the River Kwai where clients enjoy an overnight stay on a floating river hotel, and Ayutthaya Archaeological Park. Priced from $719 per person.

Also starting in Bangkok, the new 17-day Ultimate Southern Thailand Adventure includes the local attractions and markets visited in the Bangkok to Kwai Adventure and then continues south to the jungles of the Khao Sok National Park. Clients then get to splash, dance and munch their way through the idyllic islands of Phuket, Krabi, Koh Lanta, and Koh Phi Phi on the three-week adventure. Priced from $2,579 per person.

For the first time in 2019, Busabout travellers can visit Vietnam’s latest Instagram hotspot, the Golden Hand Bridge in the Ba Na Hills.
