Holidays to Asia
Home to ancient civilisations, nomadic cultures and a variety of religions and long-held traditions – not to mention a tongue-tingling kaleidoscope of fabulous cuisines – Asia has long attracted curious and adventurous travellers.
Asia is one of the most diverse continents on the planet
Take Japan, one of the continent’s more intriguing countries, with its mix of futuristic bullet trains, wooden machiya houses and shimmering pink cloud of cherry blossom. Or Indonesia, an extensive archipelago scattered with golden Buddhist temples, sugary white-sand beaches and jungle-clad islands where komodo dragons roam.
China promises sacred temple-strewn mountains and age-old traditions, where you can walk on the mighty Great Wall or follow in the footsteps of emperors in the Forbidden City. Over in Thailand, you’ll find an intoxicating mix of vibrant cities, golden beaches and remote hill tribes – plus some of the friendliest people on Earth. And India, beautiful India, promises a rollercoaster ride for all senses – from the vibrant markets of Mumbai to Jaipur’s crumbling pastel-hued forts, and the simply magnetic Taj Mahal.
