Overview

Loosely based on the TV series, our version is a rollicking adventure across Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand; the most unique holiday you can ever imagine.

The Chase across Asia is a fun and action packed 13 days starting from Saigon through the Mekong Delta, into Cambodia, exploring Angkor Wat then finally concluding in Bangkok. Although it is a “race” you compete by using your wits. No one gets eliminated or has to sleep on the floor at the railway station! After each fun-filled day, you'll return to pre­-arranged accommodations and enjoy sumptuous local cuisine with the other teams.

Roam the countryside and cities in search of clues, conquer challenges and have a ball as you battle it out with other teams. All you need is a mobile phone, backpack and willing teammate to take part, then prepare to have the most fun you've ever had!

An experienced team of Western leaders and local guides test your cunning in some truly amazing places with daily challenges that contribute to your progressive score. You'll find yourself on a boat cruising down the Mekong River, searching for delicacies in a Cambodian market and racing a tuk­-tuk through the streets of Bangkok. There are no innocent bystanders here – you'll need to interact with the locals and gain intimate knowledge about each location. There will be giveaways and prizes along the journey and the overall winning team will share a $1000 grand prize.

Get ready for cryptic clues, unusual checkpoints, awesome activities, unexpected twists and memories of a lifetime. Fun, fun and more fun!!

We arrive in the bustling commercial capital of Vietnam and find our way to the hotel near the city centre, getting first acquainted with the traffic and currency of Vietnam. This early encounter with the country will have you animated with excitement in the anticipation of the chase ahead! Following check-in we'll kick off with our first CME session in the afternoon, which will allow us a little more free time later in the journey. 

The full race contingent will meet up later for happy hour refreshments and a briefing from your tour leaders who will guide you through the trip, race rules and the documents for our race challenges. Following is our first group challenge, with all necessary details to be found in a packed envelope given by your leader.

The day begins with a group transfer out of the city into the lush Mekong Delta region, where you'll learn about the work and day-to-day lives of the local residents. We'll take a visit to a typical rural village, learn how to pick coconuts, make coconut candy, catch fish, prepare rice paper and cook your own southern Vietnamese style pancake for lunch.

The day will also include a boat cruise through the delta's intricate canal system, the highways of the region, before settling into our comfortable bungalow accommodation. This is the perfect location for a little downtime and you can spend the evening relaxing in the garden area.

After a relatively slow-paced day the chase resumes today with a morning race through Phnom Penh! You'll be challenging the other teams in the "Kingdom of Wonder's" largest city, on a journey that will take in all the main sites and eye-opening contrasts of this Cambodian metropolis. It will be a great experience with the local people and a great way to get to know the nation's capital.

An amazing day lays ahead as you search for clues to your challenges amidst the extraordinary ruined city of Angkor and its many temples. Today’s race is a little different as it’s not timed and allows teams plenty of opportunity to explore the magnificent Angkor complex at your own pace and fully appreciate one of the greatest archaeological sites in the world.

The evening will be free for exploring of a different kind, through the lively but quaint town of Siem Reap, that serves as the gateway for international visitors to Angkor.

Meal:

Today begins with an optional early morning jaunt to capture that bucket-list shot of sunrise over the iconic Angkor Wat. You are then free to spend the remainder of the morning as you wish.
