Dig deeper into the rural outskirts and you’ll uncover ancient history and traditions still in practice today. Gear up for an exciting, educational and eye-opening journey with these top TRIPS by Culture Trip for an Asian adventure.
1 . Beyond Petra: Discovering Jordan’s Rugged Side

Journey through Jordan’s desert on this nine-day small-group trip and sift through the sands of time. Fuel up with street food in Amman before embarking on an adventure through the Dana canyons and sandstone mountains. After an amazing visit to Petra, you’ll set up camp under the stars at the base of Mount Haron. A Bedouin family will give you an insight into desert living, before you enjoy a much-needed dip in the salty waters of the Dead Sea.

3 . Welcome to the Jungle: Exploring Northern Thailand

Wild trips through Thailand can be as picturesque as an Attenborough documentary and as exciting as an Indiana Jones film. Dodging bats while rafting through caverns and ancient caves, climbing a sticky waterfall, and feeding friendly elephants at their welcoming sanctuary are just a few of the scenes your own personal nature film would feature. Leap onto this 10-day adventure, restricted to a maximum of eight members, and discover northern Thailand’s jungles.
