"It is better to see something once, than to hear about it a thousand times" - Asian Proverb
The unforgettable sounds and spices, colours and flavours of Asia challenge the senses and awaken the mind.
This amazing continent stretches from the snowy peaks of Mount Fuji past Thailand’s idyllic white sand beaches and Cambodia and Vietnam’s tropical jungles dotted with hidden ancient temples and abundant with wildlife, all the way to amazing India – with its sacred sites, bustling streets, quiet ashrams, colourful festivals, steamy tropical beaches and snowy mountains. Don’t miss India’s man‐made treasures too: Delhi’s Red Fort, Agra’s iconic Taj Mahal or the pink city of Jaipur.
China, too, is full of wonders to explore; don’t stop at the Great Wall. The Hanging Temple of Hengshan, the Forbidden City, the Terracotta Army, the Ming Tombs and the Mausoleum of Mao Zedong all offer exciting glimpses into this ancient civilisation’s history. Its natural sites are also breath‐taking: from the Jiuzhaigou Nature Reserve on the edge of the Tibetan Plateau, to the Chengdu Panda Base, to the Huanglong Travertine Pools.
And then there are Asia’s rising stars: the amazing architecture of Kazakhstan or the rugged wildernesses of Mongolia.
