Gap Year in Asia

Travel to Asia on your Gap Year

From pagodas to palaces, Asia is blessed with exquisite natural beauty, deep spiritual richness and compelling culture. The scale of it is staggering - this is the largest continent on earth, covering a full one-third of our planet's surface, can you believe that?

Our destinations of choice for your gap year are Cambodia, Philippines and Vietnam. You'll soon see there are bigger issues for humanity than a failed date or a lost game of beer pong. And yet the contentment and peacefulness exhibited by the people who inhabit these places is a wonder to behold.

From the charming docility of Lagapzi, to the neon raves of Siem Reap, there's something for all tastes in these parts. So if you're up for the challenge and keen to see more than the inside of a hostel and cheap tour guide, join one of our programs and get off the road most travelled - right into the indigenous communities of the Orient. You are in for a treat.
