This Month's Featured Speaker: Darius Soon

Globetrotters - This Month: Exploring Latin America with Darius Soon starting at 71 Ayer Rajah Crescent, Singapore

Feeling unfulfilled, Darius left his corporate job as an accountant in a pursuit to uncover the great mysteries of the world. His quest has brought him to all 4 corners of the globe - he has consulted with mystics in India, marvelled at the northern lights in Finland, explored the Amazon and celebrated the summer solstice in Stonehenge. For him, the chaos and unpredictability of travel is part of the appeal and is a way to hear, touch and see the incredible beauty and diversity that Earth has to offer. 

 Featured Destinations: Cuba, Mexico and Guatemala

Naturally formed swimming holes full of crystal clear water, active volcanos, white sand beaches, turquoise seas and even a pink lake - Mexico, Cuba and Guatemala are full of natural wonders. However - it is not just nature - the region is also surprisingly rich with history both ancient and modern.  Travellers also encounter Mayan temples rising from the jungle - where human sacrifices once met their end and the bustling city Havana - where the music and vintage cars make you feel like you are stepping into the 1960s. Come listen as Darius tells us about this often overlooked region that is just waiting to be explored by those who are interested in a unique combination of cultural and natural wonders.

Darius will also discuss his upcoming trips to Ethiopia and Kenya.

  • I had a amazing trip with a group of friendly and warm tour mates. Carly was such an assuring tour leader. Excellent and safe Vietnamese driver, Jerry. well spoken English Vietnamese guide Tommy. I enjoyed myself very much and look forward for another trip!

  • Excellent short trip with beautiful verdant countryside and charming local tribal people not corrupted by tourism yet . Be prepared for long drive on narrow winding mountain roads.

  • Best trip ever ! Everyone laughed and enjoyed the hols as if we have known each other all our lives instead of meeting for the first time !

Everyone laughed and enjoyed the hols as if we have known each other all our lives instead of meeting for the first time ! Everyone kept their cool when faced with an unforseen delay . The scenery at Ha Giang is simply superb . There are so many small towns within the mountains with so many minority races living together . Their costumes are so colourful and the ladies' headgears are so lovely to gawk at . If I could , I would love to go again . Highly recommended for gungho people with "throw everything to the wind" attitude . Fantastic local guide and driver (Tom & Jerry) and pats on the back for Carly (Singapore guide) too . Thanks .........rosse and raymond . Read less

  • Georgina was great in: 1) giving reminders so that people can un-RSVP for others on wait list to get a spot. 2) giving clear instructions, photos, links on how to get to the meeting point, 3)explaining why everyone had to be on time and what the program is expected to be and when it might end. ... Read more Georgina was great in: 1) giving reminders so that people can un-RSVP for others on wait list to get a spot. 2) giving clear instructions, photos, links on how to get to the meeting point, 3)explaining why everyone had to be on time and what the program is expected to be and when it might end. Late evening slot was a good idea as we got to see the night installations at The PathFinder portion, but food stalls already closed upon exit. There are toilets inside the exhibit in Fort Canning Center itself. Cleaner than the mobile toilets outside. Thank you for helping to get us tickets when it is so difficult to do so. Read less

  • My wife, son and I never regret of signing up this trip. My 8 year old son enjoyed the walk on the rocky beach. Best moment of the walk was that we came closed to the corals, crabs ???? and ???? shrimps. Thank you threeplaygrounds!
