A place where spirituality reigns, the Far East is a destination where even the most seasoned traveller can discover something new. The calming allure of striking temples is contrasted by the bright lights and fast pace of its cities. Verdant green rice paddies are offset by glorious, isolated beaches; and tranquil villages by bustling street markets, chock full of delicious food.
Intriguing, exotic and spiritual, the Far East can captivate like no other. Wonder at the Great Wall of China and Halong Bay, drift above the stupas of Pagan, Burma in a hot air balloon, and find yourself among monks in golden robes. Meanwhile, stay in traditional accommodation like gers in Mongolia and ryokans in Japan; hear stories of folklore and experience the customs of tea ceremonies.
It is also a destination where wildlife abounds – you can meet swinging orang utans in Borneo, learn the plight of the pandas in China, play with Asian elephants in Thailand, and marvel at underwater life, found just off the coast of world-famous beaches.
