What are we all about

Here at Baktrax we pride ourselves on being the number one small group budget tour provider for Asia.

We were tired of the concept of dinosaur travel operators that when you visit another country you must see everything in two weeks and that you must pay a little amount up front and then find three or four times that amount again once you start your trip because very little is included.

Those bad old days of travel are gone as far as Baktrax is concerned.

We know that it's far better to see fewer places in detail than many in brief.

Seeing a dozen places in two weeks means you will arrive back home feeling like you still need a holiday and the memories will fade as soon as your regular routine resumes.

Travel with Baktrax and we will see that you arrive home refreshed with lifelong memories of fabulous slow travel experiences...
