This time we’ve combined the most iconic parts of Vietnam and the most beautiful islands in Thailand for a 1-2 punch of awesome adventure! Explore the southern region of Vietnam with great food, iconic architecture, and a storied history. The one-of-a-kind floating markets along the Southern Mekong River Delta are a must and lots of amazing images will be captured here before moving on to paradise in Thailand. The Phi Phi Islands are arguably the most beautiful in the whole country, with snorkeling, diving, island hopping, iconic limestone mountains, and fine white sand beaches to keep us enthralled for days.  Check out the details below and sign up ASAP in case it sells out in a few days (we wouldn’t be surprised…)

Looking for something a little different? No worries mate, because we’re heading back to Australia next year too! Explore the beauty, beaches, & iconic buildings of Sydney, the Great Barrier Reef around the stunning Whitsunday Islands, & the history, food, & cultural epicenter that is Melbourne!

Did we mention a second group for Cuba has been scheduled for next January because it just won’t stop selling out!? If you were on the group 1 waitlist or missed your chance to get in, now is the time before it fills up (again!)

1. Our Fiji Adventure is right around the corner and we need to release the remaining room holds soon. 3 spots left!

Iconic Vietnam (5 Nights)

The whole region is a rich and lush area covered with rice fields thanks to the nutrient soil from the upper Mekong. It produces half of the total of Vietnam’s agricultural output (in fact the delta produces more rice than Korea and Japan altogether!). The timeless scenery of farmers planting or harvesting rice makes for incredible photos and the delta’s complex system creates a maze of small canals, rivers, and seasonal creeks interspersed with colorful villages and bustling floating markets.

  • Experience Ho Chi Minh City (Privately guided tour: See Notre Dame, Hotel d’Ville, Ben Thanh Market, Dong Khoi street, Tao Dan Park, Reunification Palace, Jade Pagoda, China Town, & Sky Tower)
  • Street Food Adventure (Discover and taste the best ready-to-eat food the city has to offer. Interspersed with visits to hidden temples, the colorful flower market at Ho Thi Ki, and a host of other charming spots, we start the day off with some food and fun with local vendors as we meander and eat our way through Saigon’s myriad of hectic backstreets and alleyways.)
  • Cu Chi tunnels (Visit the vast underground network of tunnels built first as a defense against the French, and later expanded during the American war)
  • Floating Markets of Cai Be & Cai Rang (Sampan ride through the floating markets colorfully congested with women and children jostling for space and vying to sell their wares)
  • Bike Cruise at Cai Son Canal (Cruise along Rau Ram Creek and enjoy the tree gardens laden with fruits, pass the monkey bridges, and snap an image of ladies rowing their boats to bring fruit home after harvest. The leisurely ride ends at an orchard to enjoy some Mekong fruit and tea!)

Sydney: 3 nights

As Australia’s largest city, Sydney embraces its harbor, taking the sea and natural waterways to its heart. The grand style of the Sydney Opera House has made the city the landmark of the South Pacific. Sydney, with some 4 million people is the oldest, biggest, and liveliest city in Australia. Sydney’s facilities for sightseeing and holiday activities are unequaled by any other Australian city. It is a paradise for surfers, swimmers, yachtsmen, fishermen, and golfers. Full of history and great nightlife, the choice of things to do in Sydney is endless.

The Whitsunday Islands & Great Barrier Reef: 4 Nights

A great way for you to experience everything the Whitsundays and the Great Barrier Reef has to offer. Witness the whitest sand in the world on Whitehaven Beach, feast your eyes on the most exotic marine life in the beautiful waters of the Great Barrier Reef, and get up close and personal with a collection of native animals including koalas, kangaroos, crocodiles, wombats and various reptiles at Wild Life Hamilton Island.

Melbourne: 4 Nights

Simply stated, Melbourne is friendly elegance and Australia’s cosmopolitan and sophisticated lifestyle capital. Enjoy Melbourne’s “Old World charm”  as you stroll through formal gardens, boat on the lazy Yarra River, wander down broad, tree-lined avenues, admire stately buildings, or shop in the fine boutiques. There is a wonderfully friendly welcome found in the charming sidewalk cafes, the delightful trams, and the streets and markets of distinctive ethnic neighborhoods.


Travel Club Update: COVID-19 

PhotoFly Travel Club takes our current global pandemic extremely seriously. As such, a number of our 2020 and 2021 adventures have had to be cancelled & postponed like most in our travel industry. We want nothing more than all of our members to stay healthy & happy during these trying times. We hope everyone is playing their part by social distancing as much as possible. The more people who properly follow this crucial tactic in our country, and everyone around the world, the faster we will conquer and come out stronger & better prepared when this happens again.

As of today, we remain hopeful that travel will become feasible and safe again for most travelers early next year. In fact many countries, including most of Europe, have been on the decline for months now.  It’s important to acknowledge that these are mainly countries that have enacted strict social distancing measures much sooner and in a more timely manner than the USA has been able to. Good news is most of the countries on our upcoming calendar fit this description! For more details about the predictions and scientific modeling in each state AND many countries around the world go here: https://covid19.healthdata.org/ (you can select any state or country for the location specific predictions)

Enhanced Procedures & Safety Measures

As we get ready to explore the world with you again soon, our travel club has begun to implement new guidelines and practices for the “Post-Covid World”. Some of them are listed below. Safety is #1 and the ability to experience a destination without limitations due to the pandemic is #2

1. Country Specific Qualifications must be met to run the tour. Some of these include:
a. Daily infection incidence must show stable or decreasing trends for at least 30 days
b. Population Infected must be equal to or lower than .007% per 100K people
c. Hospital resources in country must be sufficient for predicted modeling at least 3 months after the start date of said trip.
3. PhotoFly Enhanced Safety Practices Including:
a. Masks for everyone in vehicles and other enclosed spaces
b. Sanitizer available at all times/ Surface Cleanings done constantly
c. Social distancing practices as much as possible & no contact health/temperature checks
d. Small Groups Only = Lower Risk. Only time will tell and we’re following the situation very carefully. Our pledge is to share nothing but scientific evidence and advice given by the CDC and World Health Organization (WHO). We will base our decisions in the coming months solely on these two sources. 

We know this is going to be a difficult time for all of us, in a myriad of ways. PhotoFly Travel Club is committed to building amazing experiences for years to come. We will get through this together and come out on the other side with even more amazing trips.

We wish everyone nothing but the best navigating this crisis. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all to remain healthy and persevere until we overcome. 

Much love and gratitude to all of our members,

Steve, Andrew, Catalin, Michelle, Raya, & the rest of our PhotoFly Team!
