Pokemon Go - Asia Tours & Vacation Packages


Since the initial release of Pokémon Go during the hot summer days of 2016, this location-based reality game has literally caught fire and became an overnight phenomenon worldwide. With Pokémon sightings now reported in many parts of the Asia continent, Explorient is proud to bring our Pokémon Go enthusiasts a fascinating way to explore Asia.

This action-packed tour features seven unforgettable nights at two of Asia’s most exhilarating cities – Tokyo and Hong Kong, that combines timeless traditions, tantaiizing metropolitan vibes and dazzling landmarks while leveling up your game. Starting in Tokyo, we spend three memorable days catching Pokémons and soaking up the sights & sounds of this incredible city. Here, visit the world famous Tsukiji Fish Market, the sacred Meiji Shrine, as well as famous Anime & pop-culture hotspots such as Harajuku and Akihabara (Electric Town) revered by millions of Otaku fans across the globe.

Next, Hong Kong,  a city of paramount sophistication, a paradise of culinary delights, and a mecca of boundless entertainment that never ceases to amaze the visitor. For four unforgettable days, you have the world virtually at your fingertips in the city that never sleeps. And for the Pokémon Hunter, Hong Kong just might be that perfect city. It’s compact, teeming with shops (think the thousands of PokéStops and PokéGyms), easy to get around and lots and lots of Pokémons at every corner. With your private guide at disposal, we hit both the city’s must-sees and off-the-beaten-path spots all the while catching rare species of these little monsters, plus a close-up a look at the world’s Largest Permanent Light and Sound Show’ – A Symphony of Lights, on board a traditional Junk cruising atop the spectacular Victoria Harbor.

Embark on a trip like never before with a chance to mingle with the locals that transcend cultural and language barriers. Soak up Tokyo’s eclectic Otaku (anime) pop-culture strolling the streets of Akihbara and Harajuku. Eat your way through Hong Kong’s tantalizing cuisines from Michelin Star restaurants to the mouth-watering food stalls. Experience dazzling landmarks, striking natural beauty and uncommon adventures filling up that Pokédex along the way. Your memories of a lifetime await.
