More About Asia & Oceania Trips & Tours

Is traveling to Asia safe? 

Safety is the number one priority at Under30Experiences, and we go to great lengths to make sure we build itineraries that offer something for everyone. Asia can feel intimidating to some travelers because of the cultural differences, but our Trip Leaders are locals who know the ins and outs of the area. If you ever have any doubts you can always ask your Trip Leader or just stay close to your group. Group travel equals “safety in numbers!”

Will I have to know the local language? 

In many places, you will find the locals speak English and your Trip Leader is always versed in the local language. 

Fun fact: Indonesia has over 710 local languages!

What is the best time of year to visit Asia and Oceania?

Each country is different so let’s break it down:
Thailand: You will find trips scheduled year-round here. The months of November to February are considered peak season with great weather. March - October is generally warmer but you will also find fewer crowds in most locations. We try to avoid the month of March because of the heat.

Vietnam and Cambodia: The best time to visit Vietnam is spring (February to April) and fall (August to October). The temperatures are more moderate and rainfall is lighter.

Most travelers visit Cambodia from November to March. If you prefer to dodge the crowds and go when prices are lower, the best time to visit Cambodia is from May to early October. Cambodia is warm year-round. 

Indonesia: The dry season is considered to be May - October. Temperatures remain hot and humid year-round. With over 17,000 islands it’s generally best to travel during the dry season to avoid travel disruptions while island hopping. 

New Zealand: The summer months of December to February are the warmest months, but the shoulder season before and after peak season and great as well. You will find this is when our trips are scheduled, as we do not operate the itinerary in New Zealand’s winter months.

Why sign-up for a group trip to Asia?

Here are just a few of the reasons we see travelers join our group trips:

  • Not everyone wants to plan and research everything to do in an entire country. Our trips include some of the best locations and activities in each country built for young adventurous travelers.
  • A full-time guide is with you during your trip to help with local languages, lead you on hikes, teach you about the area and make sure each day goes as planned. It can be reassuring knowing that you are always on the right trail or having a Trip Leader that knows backup plans in bad weather or has recommendations for extra activities.
  • Meeting great people! When you join an Under30Experiences trip you know you will be with a group of like-minded people in your age range.

"Wow! Wow! Wow! I've been to some fun and amazing places but Bali was truly a dream vacation come true. What really made the trip perfection was the U30X team. I now have a little Bali family." - Ayannah B. | Yelp Review
