Two Asian nations – and a favourite drag queen – await on this all-new, all-inclusive OUT Adventure. After four days in Siem Reap, the Cambodian town that’s home to the legendary Angkor Wat, we’ll board a luxurious, seven-night, all-gay cruise along the Mekong River. As for that drag queen: between satisfying staff below deck and hunting down đồng (the Vietnamese currency), Toronto diva Miss Conception will stun you with two shows, a trivia night, and private Champagne lap dances in her suite (God forbid the stilted villages, Phnom Penh, and gorgeous countryside upstage her). We’ll then disembark in Ho Chi Minh City, where ancient collides with modern. Wrap it up here, or join us for another five days on our Hanoi & Ha Long Bay Trip Extension (see ‘Related Tours’ below). Book both tours and save $475 per person (not combinable with other discounts).
Rob’s depature: Jan. 3 to 15, 2018 – 4195.00 USD
India – and especially the province of Rajasthan – is chaotic, colourful, and laden with lavishness. This OUT Adventure fills a decadent thirteen days with a 7th Wonder of the World, the Pink City of Jaipur, Bengal tigers on safari, and huge clouds of colour that define the world-famous Holi Festival. Enthralled and exhausted by it all, please stand by for the Royal Maharajah treatment, outstanding meals, memorable accommodations and the ‘eternal tradition’ of Hinduism.
Rob’s departure: Feb. 19 to Mar. 3, 2018 – 4895.00 USD
Sri Lanka is a gem like no other. Off the coast of India, mainland influences filter through the island’s Buddhist, Muslim and Hindu people. With a Civil War ending in 2009, the world is buzzing about this new travel hotspot. On our tour you’ll go deep into jungles, high up to tea country, and headfirst into the culture. You’ll also slumber in the most sublime hotel suites, and savour lavish dinners every night of the tour. If you’re an architecture or design fiend, this tour also features 3 stops celebrating famed gay Sri Lankan architect, Geoffrey Bawa, Master of Jungle Modernism.
Rob’s departure: Mar. 4 to 14, 2018 – 3995.00 USD
Muskoka is the jewel of Canada’s cottage country, frequently dubbed The Hamptons of The North. It’s also where we’ll host the first OUT Adventure of our homeland, while welcoming American friends to celebrate the 4th of July. Join up to 50 guys for frivolous fun and cunning cuisine over five glorious days at a gay-owned resort. The chef is delicious (so is the food), and the resort offers an array of sleeping options to choose from. It’s also the perfect way to see what all the fuss is about if you’ve never traveled with us before.
Rob’s departure: Jun. 30 to Jul. 6, 2018 – 2435.00 USD
The Scottish Highlands offer some of the most glorious hikes in the world. This 8-day adventure features four hikes, a few isles, and time in both the capital of Edinburgh and Scotland’s largest city, Glasgow. If you’re not a hardcore hiker, you can skip the most challenging day and spend it exploring Brodick Castle instead.
Rob departure: Aug. 13 to 20, 2018 – 4550.00 USD
This tour kicks off in old Asia’s new hotspot, Laos, a charming country surrounded by more developed neighbours, where we’ll immerse ourselves in deep traditions like the Buddhist’s daily alms-giving. We’ll then fly off to Cambodia’s Phnom Penh, once the Orient’s most beautiful city, to experience the city’s colonial charm and learn about its turbulent past. Our journey ends in Siem Reap, where we’ll explore spectacular Angkor Archaeological Park over a couple of days.
Rob’s departure: Nov. 25 to Dec 3, 2018 – 3995.00 USD
