Introducing our Culture and History holidays
Discovering different cultures and learning about the history and traditions of foreign lands are among the real joys of international travel. There is a whole world waiting to be explored, and Titan can take you to some of the most culturally fascinating and rewarding destinations on our planet, accompanied by friendly and knowledgeable tour managers keen to share their enthusiasm for the places you will visit, and fellow British travellers who share your interests. If you believe, as we do, that travel ‘broadens the mind’, then come along on one of our exciting Titan holidays focussing on culture and history. The only question is, where do you begin?
If you’re fascinated by Asian culture, Titan has a superb selection of tours that are sure to appeal. Our Wonders of China tour is an ideal introduction to this amazing country, visiting the Great Wall, Beijing’s Forbidden City and the awe-inspiring Terracotta Warriors of Xi’an. Indochina is attracting more and more British tourists, and on Titan’s Images of Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos tour, you will experience the diverse landscapes and cultures of all three nations of this former French territory. Join us as we visit Vietnam’s Mekong Delta, vibrant Ho Chi Minh City and spectacular Halong Bay, the magnificent temple complex of Angkor Wat in Cambodia, and colourful Luang Prabang, once the royal capital of the enigmatic country of Laos.
And if you’re seeking an off-the-beaten-track adventure, look no further than Titan’s new itinerary, Uzbekistan – Jewel of the Silk Road, following the route of the old camel caravans across the Red Sand Desert and spending time admiring the palaces and mosques of Samarkand and Bukhara. You’ll also visit the Savitsky Art Museum in the city of Nukus, home to the world’s second-largest collection of 20th century Russian art.
Alternatively, you could try another of our keenly-priced Traveller, by Titan tours, Moroccan Explorer, stopping in Casablanca, Rabat and Marrakech on an eight-day discovery of this exotic land just a few hours’ flight away, or stay in Europe with a fantastic 10-day visit to Sicily, Jewel of the Mediterranean, an island which has been at the crossroads of so many different cultures over the millennia. You’ll discover the UNESCO World Heritage sites of the Valley of the Temples at Agrigento, Syracuse, Palermo and brooding Mount Etna as well as beautiful Taormina, with its famous ancient Greek theatre.
