New travel service Indiescapes offers individual holiday activities hosted by city locals, priced from US$30 (S$37) for a three-hour event and US$50-70 (S$62-87) for a day trip.

Activities include living a day like a Balinese villager, eating Vietnamese street food hosted by a local and partying in Bangkok with free-admission into clubs (Bed Supperclub, Q bar and Bash) and access to VIP areas.
