G Adventures meets Vamadu

G Adventures wurde 1990 von Bruce Poon Tip gegründet. Sein einziges Startkapital waren zwei Kreditkarten und das brennende Verlangen, eine authentische, nachhaltige Reiseerfahrung anzubieten, wie die Welt sie noch nicht gesehen hatte. Indem er abenteuerlustigen Reisenden eine Alternative zu den üblichen Touristenhotels, Kreuzfahrten und Busreisen anbot, veränderte er nicht nur die Art, wie Menschen ihren Urlaub betrachten, sondern auch das Angesicht des Reisens für immer. Das einzige, was sich in den letzten 25 Jahren nicht verändert hat, ist der tief verwurzelte Glaube an deren Grundwerte, die das Leben und G Adventure bis heute bestimmen.

Wir Vamadu-Gründer möchten genau diese Art von nachhaltigem, unabhängigem Tourismus für Individualreisende fördern und freuen uns, dass G Adventures somit selbst Teil der Vamadu Story wird!

  • G Adventures Abenteuerreisen


    Burma on a Shoestring in wenigen Worten

    Fantastisch, surreal, in der Zeit stehengeblieben – es gibt viele Wege, um Burma (oder Myanmar) zu beschreiben, doch am besten ist es, du kommst einfach her und siehst es dir selbst an. Nutze Thailand als Ausgangspunkt und nimm dir zwei Wochen Zeit, um die Region beim Spazierengehen, Wandern und Fahren richtig kennenzulernen, von den Tempeln und Ruinen von Bagan bis zu den Reisfeldern und Bergvölkern. Und mit zwei inbegriffenen Flügen ersparst du dir lange Reisetage und kannst sicher sein, dass du das meiste aus deinem Eintauchen in die Kultur verschiedener burmesischer Städte machen kannst. Vertraue uns, wenn wir dir sagen, dass man die Wunder und die Schönheit Burmas zumindest einmal im Leben persönlich gesehen haben muss. Und die beste Zeit dafür ist genau jetzt.

    Wichtige Hinweise

    LUGGAGE There are some very long travel days on public buses. As we frequently get on and off sometimes crowded local transport please note backpacks are much more suitable than suitcases for this style of trip. Also note that in some major cities in Vietnam, many hotel rooms do not have windows. COMBO TRIP Please note that this tour combines with other G Adventures tours. As such, the staff and some travel companions on your tour may have previously been traveling together with G Adventures, prior to Day 1 of your tour.

    Chief Experience Officers?

    All G Adventures group trips are accompanied by one of our Chief Experience Officers (CEO). The aim of the CEO is to take the hassle out of your travels and to help you have the best trip possible. They will provide information on the places you are travelling through, offer suggestions for things to see and do, recommend great local eating venues and introduce you to our local friends. While not being guides in the traditional sense you can expect them to have a broad general knowledge of the countries visited on the trip, including historical, cultural, religious and social aspects. We also use local guides where we think more specific knowledge will add to the enjoyment of the places we are visiting - we think it's the best of both worlds.

    Was packe ich ein?

    What you need to bring depends on the trip you have chosen and the countries or regions you are planning to visit. We suggest that you pack as lightly as possible as your are expected to carry your own luggage. As a rule we try not to have to walk more than 15-20 minutes with your bags which is why we recommend keeping the weight of your bags between 10-15kg/22-30lb. Suitcases are not recommended for G Adventures trips! Most travellers carry a backpack or rolling bag of small to medium size (no XXL ones please!) as they need to fit under the beds when travelling on sleeper trains. You will also need a day pack/bag to carry water, cameras and other electronics like ipods and mobile phones. If your trip involves overnights in homestays, villages or camping then you usually have the opportunity to rent sleeping bags if need be instead of bringing them with you.

    Empfohlene Packliste

    Passport (with photocopies) Travel insurance (with photocopies) Airline tickets (with photocopies) USD cash (small denominations preferred) Credit or debit card (see personal spending money) G Adventures vouchers, pre-departure information and dossier Any entry visas, additional passport photos or vaccination certificates required Alarm clock Flashlight Sunblock/Sun hat Sunglasses Insect repellent Small towel and swim wear Toiletries (biodegradable) Sturdy walking shoes/sport sandals Money belt Shorts Long trousers Hiking pants/track pants Shirts/T-shirts Warm clothing Fleece jacket or warm layer Windproof rain gear Rain jacket or poncho Gloves Hat Umbrella Cover for backpack or plastic bags to keep clothes dry Clothes for temples – long pants or sarongs (knees and shoulder should be covered) Camera & memory cards/charger Reading/writing material Pocketknife (optional, useful for scissors, corkscrew & knife) First-aid kit (should contain lip salve, aspirin, band aids, anti-histamine, imodium or similar tablets for mild cases of diarrhea, re-hydration powder, extra prescription drugs you may be taking)

    Reinigung / Laundry

    Laundry facilities are offered by some of our hotels for a charge. There will be times when you may want to or have to do your own laundry so we suggest you bring non-polluting/biodegradable soap.

    Geld wechseln

    As currency exchange rates in South East Asia do fluctuate, we ask that you refer to the following website for the most up to date daily exchange rates: www.xe.com for each of the above mentioned currencies. The best way to carry your money is in debit cards, withdrawing cash in local currencies from ATM machines. ATMs are found throughout South East Asia and will generally accept cards on the Visa and Mastercard networks. It is a great idea to travel with both a Visa and Mastercard if at all possible in case of loss or problems with one card, you will have a back up. Please note, your bank will charge a fee for overseas withdrawals. USD Cash is recommended for times when ATMs are not accessible. You should bring some cash with you for emergency situations (please refer to our trip dossier) but carrying only cash is a high safety risk. ATM card/s and some cash is the ideal mix. Travellers cheques can be tricky, timely and expensive to exchange. While we do not recommend that you bring them as your primary source of funds, it is great to have one or two cheques in case of emergency. Thomas Cook or American Express travellers' cheques in US currency are the easiest to exchange. Cash advances can also be made with some banks but are time consuming and tend to have high fees attached.Credit cards can be used at some upmarket restaurants, and at some larger stores if shopping for big items. If you are bringing US Dollars, please make sure that the notes are new and in good condition. Notes older than 2003, or with any tears or blemishes may not be accepted. Be fussy with your bank when buying cash!

    Trinkgeld

    It is customary in Asia to tip service providers such as waiters, at approximately 10%, depending on the service. Tipping is expected - though not compulsory - and shows an expression of satisfaction with the people who have assisted you on your tour. Although it may not be customary to you, it is of considerable significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels. There are several times during the trip where there is opportunity to tip the local guides or drivers we use. You may do this individually, or your CEO will offer to collect the money and tip as a group. Recommendations for tipping drivers and local guides would range from $1.5-$3.5 USD per person per day depending on the quality and length of the service; ask your CEO for specific recommendations based on the circumstances and culture. Also at the end of each trip if you felt your G Adventures CEO did an outstanding job, tipping is appreciated. The amount is entirely a personal preference, however as a guideline $20-25 USD per person, per week can be used.

    Weitere mögliche Aktivitäten vor Ort

    Approximate costs (per person) for popular optional activities taken in free time are: Jim Thompson’s House (Bangkok) - USD3.5 National Museum (Bangkok) - USD1.5 Royal Barge Museum (Bangkok) USD1.5 Grand palace (Bangkok) - USD11 Wat Po (Bangkok) - USD2 Klong(Canal) Tour (Bangkok) - Approx $10-30 dependent on numbers Thai massage – USD10 per hour Doi Suithep (Chiang Mai) - USD2 (plus transport) Bicycle tour (Chiang Mai) - USD30 for Half Day Thai Cookery Course (Chiang Mai) - USD30 for Half Day Kan Toke Traditional Dinner (Chiang Mai) - USD30 Bamboo rafting (Chiang Mai) - USD15 plus transport All prices are per person (unless stated otherwise), and are subject to change as services are provided by third party operators.

    Gesundheit

    Please note inoculations may be required for the country visited. It is your responsibility to consult with your travel doctor for up to date medical travel information well before departure. You should consult your doctor for up-to-date medical travel information well before departure. We recommend that you carry a First Aid kit and hand sanitizers / antibacterial wipes as well as any personal medical requirements. Please be aware that sometimes we are in remote areas and away from medical facilities, and for legal reasons our CEO's are prohibited from administering any type of drug including headache tablets, antibiotics, etc. In Asia pharmacies tend to stock the same western drugs as you get at home but they are usually produced locally so please bring the full drug name with you when trying to purchase a prescription drug. When selecting your trip please carefully read the brochure and itinerary and assess your ability to cope with our style of travel. Please refer to the Physical and Culture Shock ratings for trip specific information. G Adventures reserves the right to exclude any traveller from all or part of a trip without refund if in the reasonable opinion of our CEO they are unable to complete the itinerary without undue risk to themselves and/or the rest of the group.

    Empfohlene Kleidung

    In Asia the dress standard is more conservative than it is back home. When packing try to pick loose, lightweight, long clothing that will keep you cool in the usually hot and humid climate of Asian summers. In predominately Buddhist, Hindu and Muslim countries we ask that you dress respectfully and avoid very short shorts/skirts and singlets/tanktops when visiting temples, mosques or other holy sites.
