Ancient customs, brought to life

Asia tailor-made holidays

Overview

Asia is a vast region and the destinations within this part of the world are each distinct. Sometimes thought of as difficult to get around, with alien cultures, long distances and difficult languages, the region actually has a comprehensive infrastructure that connects China, South East Asia and Indonesia.

People visiting will encounter a diverse collection of cultures and have the opportunity to indulge in both the ancient at iconic sites such as Angkor Wat and the ultimate in modern hi-tech cities in Shanghai or Tokyo. The region teems with temples, palaces and landmarks. Additionally, there are some stunning landscapes, lush rainforests, gorgeous beaches and idyllic island getaways to explore.

Travel to China and Japan for genuine culture shock and a chance to see a completely different way of life; journey across the Asian steppe to see Mongolia or travel through South East Asia, discovering the delights of Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam. Alternatively, there are still discoveries to be made a bit further off the beaten path in emerging gems such as Burma and less-visited corners including Indonesia and Malaysia.
