India and Sri Lanka
Stand in awe as you watch the exquisite Taj Mahal radiate at the brink of dawn, when the first rays of sun glisten on the dome, then at dusk gasp as it shimmers in the moonlight. Ride a rickshaw through Old Delhi, weaving in and out of cars, goats, sheep, mopeds and the bustling crowds of pedestrians. Pick up aromatic spices and sweets from Chandni Chowk market. Stroll through the sandstone and marble halls of the Amber Fort, a magnificent palace complex perched on rolling green hills. Stop off at the pink city of Jaipur to meet Inder and Usha where you will be treated to a tantalising dinner of Rajasthan and Central India cuisine.
JapanEmbrace the timeless tradition and modern spirit of Japan’s iconic sites, from the neon skyline of Tokyo to the foodie hotspot of Osaka. Relax in the soothing hot springs of Kotohira, spend the night in a traditional ryokan and contemplate world peace at the final remnants of Hiroshima’s atomic blast. Go on an epic voyage of discovery through this welcoming nation. Spend an afternoon at the mountain village of Gokayama, which is like stepping back in time with its unique Gassho-zukuri wooden houses.
Head north to the exquisite island of Hokkaido, exploring the rural traditions of herring fishing and eco farming. Admire how the rolling fields of lavender purple, tulip red and cherry-blossom pink stand strikingly against the snow-capped peaks and alpine lakes.
China & South East AsiaWalk along the Great Wall of China as it meanders across mountain peaks and lush green forests. Unwind with a relaxing foot massage at a reflexology centre in Beijing before quenching your thirst at a local tea house. Participate in a cooking class to perfect the authentic Sichuan cuisine.
Visit Chinatown in Singapore to learn about the Chinese immigrants and Little India for an insight into Indian culture and traditions. Cross the border into Malaysia with bustling cities, colonial architecture, sun-drenched islands and vibrant tea plantations. In Cambodia, take a trip to Wat Damnak to receive a special blessing from one of the monks, which includes the tying of a blessed string around the wrist. End the day at Angkor Wat, one of the most important religious monuments in the world.
