What’s Special About Journeys Within

When Andrea Ross started Journeys Within in Siem Reap, Cambodia (home of the UNESCO World Heritage site of Angkor Wat) in 2003, she was one of very few Southeast Asia ground operators with a U.S. background. Her first-person knowledge of the region, coupled with an experienced staff in Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos and Myanmar have earned the tour company the reputation it has today of offering guests seamless, custom trips from when they first contact our tour consultants to when they explore Southeast Asia with our amazing team in each country.

Having been described by Condé Nast Magazine as “pioneers in philanthropic travel,” Journeys Within believes not just in empowering the local people to better their own lives, but believes in empowering travelers to help give them that chance. This is why we started Journeys Within Our Community (JWOC) in 2005. Whether donating a well, volunteering at a school, or supporting a scholarship student or microloan recipient, Journeys Within wants its guests to be a part of the positive impact travel can have.

Named as a 2008 Condé Nast World Saver, Journeys Within and JWOC work together to bring guests a unique and rewarding experience that helps empower the communities they visit.

Five Countries, One Team

Journeys Within has offices in Cambodia, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, and Myanmar. We maintain a Director in each country to ensure that all goes as planned, and our amazing guides, drivers and staff all believe in the Journeys Within mission to give our guests the trip of a lifetime.

Andrea still leads a yearly guide training tour, so she personally knows every guide working for Journeys Within. Since the beginning, Journeys Within has been a family company, and even as it has grown, the idea of family has remained at its core. We may be spread over five countries and speak multiple languages, but we are one team.
