WHY TRAVEL WITH US
Asian Pacific Adventures is known as a pioneer of cultural travel
in Asia. We take our clients on eye-opening journeys to the
less-trodden corners of Asia where they are among the privileged
few to interact with remote tribes and participate in colorful
festivals. Our clients are welcomed into private homes, attend
fascinating ceremonies and gain invaluable insights into ancient,
complex cultures often unknown and inaccessible to westerners.
Even our classic signature tours have a unique cultural emphasis.
Whether on a group departure or a customized individual tour,
our clients experience Asia in a way that is both enlightening
Passenger safety, health and comfort are our first concern.
This combined with personalized service and well-researched
& designed itineraries provides APA clients with world-class
travel experiences. Almost 70% of our business is from repeat
clients and referrals – proof of our staff’s dedication
to our clients’ satisfaction. Client references are available
We travel responsibly and believe in cultural and environmental
preservation. We also believe that smaller groups provide a
better travel experience for our clients. Our small groups,
sometimes limited to as few as 6 people, are designed to make
the least impact.
We support local and international non-profits that are working
to maintain cultural survival and improve the quality of life
for all. If you would like to help please contact
“Maiti Nepal” that acts against child trafficking
and provides shelter and medication for those who have AIDS.
“Asman” St. Mary’s School Alumni that raises
funds for the education and artistic development of under privileged
children in Nepal.
“Cultural Survival” in Boston, MA www.cs.org
that promotes the rights, voices and visions of indigenous peoples.
