What is the Chase Across Asia?

The Chase across Asia is a fun and challenge-packed 13 days from Saigon through the Mekong Delta, Cambodia including Angkor Wat, ending in Bangkok. Although it is a “race” you can easily “run” the race 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 some sumptuous local cuisine with the other teams.

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

There are daily challenges that will 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.
