About Us


We started with an aim in mind – to offer our own personal experience to create wonderful, fluid, relaxed, yet adventurous holidays through some of the most magical places in Asia. We love working with people who live life to the full. Real travelling is being able to do what you want, when you want to. For us, this involves leaving behind the crowds, finding somewhere beautiful and meeting inspiring people who show us their way of life.

We operate our own offices in New Zealand, Vietnam and Cambodia and work with reputable partners in Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, China, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan. Our brochures are presented how we experience our own travels, moving from one country to the next, meeting people, enjoying new cultures, experiences and discovering new gems along the way.

Personally, we feel that the perfect holiday is a combination of cultural exploration, exceptional hotels and outstanding guides. The Active Asia Team has a shared quality: we love travelling to Asia.

Nothing compares to a chat. Please start by calling us to speak to one of our destination experts who will design your custom-made itinerary. A conversation at the start of the planning process allows us to immediately understand your preferred style of hotel, be it one of our five-star favourites or a homestay where you dine with charming hosts at their table & experiences to suit you.

All of us have lived, worked or travelled in our specialists region and we return as often as we can, partly for research and partly because we just love Asia!
