Which location is best for buying gifts and souvenirs?
Each country and region will have its own local souvenirs, so it’s up to you which area you buy from. The Ben Thanh Market in Ho Chi Minh City is a popular large marketplace. Equally, Bangkok is full of gift shops and markets to explore.
What time do the activities start on each day?
This will depend on the itinerary for the day, but generally, around 8 am.
You can use the Tineri app to see a full itinerary of your trip before your adventure begins. You’ll also be reminded of the itinerary at the welcome meeting.
How long is each activity?
This will vary, but the Tineri app will give you a rough idea of each activity’s length.
If you would like more information about a specific activity, simply get in touch with one of our friendly Trip Experts.
Are all the activities suitable for beginners?
Yes, the activities are all suitable for beginners that are willing to give them a go! You’ll always be with a trained professional, so you’re in safe hands.
Can I take part in water activities with a life vest if I can’t swim?
Yes. During the boat rides, you will be provided with a life jacket. If you have any concerns, please get in touch with our Trip Experts.
I don't know how to swim, is this trip for me?
Yes, this trip is definitely for you. Swimming is not a major part of this trip, so it’s perfect if you don’t know how to swim. If fellow Flashpackers take a dip in a pool, you can either stick to the shallow end or lounge and soak up the sun.
What is there to do during free time?
We don’t think you can beat heading to a local market and seeing how the community lives. Alternatively, you could head to a bar or cafe and soak in the atmosphere of your new surroundings.
If you’re after activities, your Pack Leader will be able to give you the low down on the very best things to do in each city.
Are there alternate options if I can’t do any of the activities?
Your Flash Pack group will tend to stick together, however, if you feel like staying at your hotel and relaxing, please let your Pack Leader know. Your Pack Leader will also be able to suggest alternative activities.
How do I book trip extensions?
We currently do not have any extensions for this adventure, but if you feel like carrying on the south-east Asian adventure, check out our epic trip across Thailand and Laos, or hit the glorious beaches in Thailand’s stunning south.
I am a runner, can I run each morning?
Yes, you can run in all the areas you’ll visit, although some places may be better than others. In cities, you won’t have right of way as a runner, so always give way to others. Your Pack Leader will be able to offer advice on the best places to go for a run.
