When Do You Want To Go?

The Far East

The Far East delivers an intoxicating blend of natural splendour, ancient customs, exotic wildlife, vibrant modern mega-cities, and historic temples.  An enthralling land busting with impressive monuments, spectacular scenery, exciting flavours, and utterly unique experiences.  From sensory overload in its futuristic cities to truly authentic encounters with a practicing monk or a devoted Geisha.  Delve into the history of the Japanese Samurai, explore the cherry tree dotted hills of South Korea or take a legendary walk along the Great Wall of China.

Shoot through the countryside on Japans bullet train or peacefully cruise along China’s picturesque Yangtze River.  Sleep in a traditional ryokan inn or an ultra-modern hotel, staffed by talking robots.  From emotive and poignant historic sights to the bizarre and at times utterly bonkers modern attractions, this is a destination that really does offer something for everyone and is bound to be an adventure that’s never forgotten.
