see a different part of the world, differently


A luxury travel company, Smiling Albino specializes in tailoring high-end, customized trips to Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar, Nepal and Indonesia. We fuse luxury travel, exclusive access and local experiences to create a platform for guests to truly engage with our destinations.

Like a fine whiskey blended by hand, a great holiday trip is part art, part science. Smiling Albino challenges the convention of what travel is. We obsess over details to custom-design and deliver experiences that exceed expectations. 

and now, we're doing that for locals, too!

While borders remain shuttered, we’re showing our neighbors around Thailand. Trips by locals, for locals.

where we go


Join us through the back alleys of Bangkok, Kathmandu or Saigon’s directed chaos, to Andaman beaches and the South China Seas. Over the hills of Central Vietnam, the jungle valleys of Chiang Mai or the Himalayan Mountains of Nepal. From the historic treasures of Angkor, Bagan, Hue and Ayutthaya, to the quiet simplicity of Laos villages and winding rivers.

what people say about us

I have had the good fortune to go on a few trips with Smiling Albino over the years and they are by far the best travel outfit I have experienced. They customized a trip for my Dragonboat team a few years ago that catered perfectly to our active lifestyles. Biking through Bangkok, river trips, motorcycle tours, market adventures (and the crazy things you can eat), etc. Their guides are so incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. It really is the best way to see this part of the world.
