By offering tours that feature unique modes of transport, Backyard Travel presents new perspectives on some of Asia's most popular destinations.

Explore Bali in a Convertible VW Jeep.

At Backyard Travel we love to recommend the extraordinary and we've found that travelers love to see a destination via a quirky form of transport.

Bali is one of Asia’s hottest travel spots and to meet demand for new, immersive experiences in the Island of the Gods, Backyard Travel offers the Meander the Mountains tour by convertible amphibious VW jeep. This three-day trip can be easily added to any vacation in Bali, giving travelers the chance to traverse the island's volcanic areas by open top jeep with the help of a knowledgeable guide.

The convertible amphibious jeep lets travelers really experience the elements – the balmy tropical air, the warm sunshine, the distinctive smell of the sulfurous hot springs of Bajar. This tour includes an exhilarating drive along the crater rim of Mount Batur, a guided trek of the rainforest surrounding Batukaru Temple and visits to famous sites like Tanah Lot, Pura Batur and the temple of Dewi Danu, Goddess of the Lakes.

Adding spice to a holiday in Vietnam, the Saigon to the Delta tour showcases Ho Chi Minh City from the back of a Vespa Scooters are Vietnam's chosen mode of transport, and Backyard Travel gives travelers the chance to see the capital the way the locals do. Enjoying the views from the back of a chauffeur-driven Vespa, visitors are taken around the city in a half-day tour of the best sights, including Tao Dan Park, Ho Thi Ky flower market, Chinatown and Reunification Palace.

For a stylish ride through Myanmar, the historic Elephant Coach offers comfort and class. Featured in the seven-day Luxurious Myanmar tour, this restored 1945 Chevrolet boasts beautiful teak interiors, handcrafted décor and a fully restored original carriage. Travelers can relax and enjoy a drink from the minibar while being driven through colonial Yangon to view the city's grand historic buildings.
