Between mist-shrouded temples, jungle-cloaked waterways and thriving metropolises, the pull of the Orient is as strong as ever. Perhaps explore the floating markets of Vietnam’s Mekong Delta before enjoying tropical island luxury. Or, hop over the border to the golden 19th-century palaces of Cambodia, also home to the world’s largest religious monument – the Angkor temple complex.
You can even tie the two countries together with a cruise past riverside monasteries and quaint villages between Ho Chi Minh City and Siem Reap. While no less historic, tours to Japan combine the neon of its high-tech cities with winding rail journeys to mountainside teahouses as China mixes world-exclusive maglev trains with ancient Terracotta Warrior armies. But, if that all sounds too much, retreat to Sri Lanka’s golden beaches and ruined cities for a relaxed getaway.
