If you’re a fan of The Amazing Race or The Amazing Race Canada, why not try it for real! Come experience one of the most original travel experiences, inspired by the TV series. This version is the most unique adventure through Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand that you can imagine.

The Chase across Asia is a fun and action-packed 13 days starting from Saigon through the Mekong Delta, into Cambodia, exploring Angkor Wat then finally concluding in Bangkok. Although it is a “race” you compete by using your wits. No one gets eliminated or has to sleep on the floor at the railway station! After each fun-filled day, you’ll return to pre­-arranged accommodations and enjoy sumptuous local cuisine with the other teams.

Roam the countryside and cities in search of clues, conquer challenges and have a ball as you battle it out with other teams. All you need is a mobile phone, backpack and willing teammate to take part, then prepare to have the most fun you’ve ever had!

An experienced team of Western leaders and local guides test your cunning in some truly amazing places with daily challenges that contribute to your progressive score. You’ll find yourself on a boat cruising down the Mekong River, searching for delicacies in a Cambodian market and racing a tuk­-tuk through the streets of Bangkok. There are no innocent bystanders here – you’ll need to interact with the locals and gain intimate knowledge about each location.

Get ready for cryptic clues, unusual checkpoints, awesome activities, unexpected twists and memories of a lifetime. Fun, fun and more fun!!

There will be giveaways and prizes along the journey and the overall winning team will share a $1000 grand prize.
