Explore Southeast Asia with BlackGirlFly!

 

*Registration for this trip closes July 1st*

As we begin this next chapter with BlackGirlFly, we have shifted our focus to quality events over quantity. We have realized that our group trips are meant to be more intimate as we encourage bonding with one another and fostering the village ideal. With that being said, I present our first multi-country, multi-city tour. As beautiful as Bali is, I feel it would be highway robbery to not give you the opportunity to see and experience more of that region. Bali isn’t a quick flight so why not make it REALLY worth it?

In June of 2018, I will lead eight BGF members on a 12 day tour of Thailand and Indonesia. We have worked this itinerary to include some meals as well as 4-star lodging. VIP members can begin reserving their spot June 10th at 8 am EST. On June 11th, a payment option will appear on this page for those with general BGF membership to join this event.

Take a look at our itinerary below!
