From culture to cuisine, sights to scenery, Asia holidays surprise and delight at every turn. Tour the forts and palaces of India or the tea plantations and temples of Sri Lanka. In Central Asia and the Caucasus, you could follow Uzbekistan’s Silk Road route, or discover the ancient churches, mountain villages and wine-making towns of Armenia and Georgia.
Switch between the ancient and futuristic in East Asia, where ancient shrines stand shoulder-to-shoulder with ultra-modern skyscrapers. Travel to Asia's south-east corner and you'll find a region of jungle landscapes, powerhouse cities and pindrop-peaceful temples.
Our Asia tours are all accompanied by an expert tour manager – someone who’ll be there throughout the trip to ensure everything runs smoothly and safely. Itineraries are carefully designed by our team of experts and include a selection of excursions and experiences to enhance your trip, often taking in some of the best places to visit in Asia.
In Borneo, for example, you’ll enjoy a safari by boat, looking out for pygmy elephants relaxing on the banks of the river. In Armenia, we’ll listen to a private recital in a centuries-old rock church and learn to create a local speciality during a cooking class. And on our small-group tour of Vietnam, you’ll spend a day at a local garden, with a delicious lunch made from just-picked produce.
India & Sri Lanka
A heady mix of landscapes, colourful festivals, spiritual beliefs and traditions, holidays to India and Sri Lanka have it all – and once you experience them, the memories will continue to dazzle.
Wander the streets and let your senses be overwhelmed on our Indian tours. You’ll find bright saris, spicy curries, fragrant teas and city streets packed with everything from cars to cows. Head to Rajasthan for ornate palaces and temples, tiger-spotting safaris and the Taj Mahal on a classic or extended Golden Triangle tour; or venture to southern India for serene beaches and sleepy backwaters.
Alternatively, you can travel to Sri Lanka – this teardrop-shaped island in the Indian Ocean is home to rock-carved temples, rare leopards and hilly tea plantations.
From sizzling street food to remote rainforests filled with incredible wildlife, Southeast Asia offers a real taste of the exotic. There are buzzing cities – sleek Singapore, French-influenced Hanoi, Bangkok with its tuk tuks and temples.
Step away from the throngs, though, and you’ll find a different side to Southeast Asia – one where ancient capitals lie half-hidden in jungle, families stock up on supplies at floating markets, and orange-robed monks gather alms at dawn.
East Asia holidays do ancient-meets-modern like nowhere else. Travel to Japan and you could dine in a hushed ryokan or a high-tech robot restaurant; in China, you might step inside a thousand-year-old shrine one day and an ultra-modern mall the next. Whether you’re visiting one country or both, expect fascinating rituals and traditions – delicate calligraphy, hour-long tea ceremonies and artfully prepared kaiseki (multi-course Japanese meals).
Indochina is a section of Southeast Asia consisting of the captivating countries of Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos. Indochina has a fascinating history: in 1887, the French formed colonies in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos taking all power, however in 1940 the French struggled to control these areas and wars began for independence, eventually this was established and the French evacuated Vietnam in 1954. Now, Indochina is a popular pick for travellers - on our Indochina tours, you'll discover cultural landmarks, delicious food, and an abundance of rainforests, mangroves and lush green landscapes.
Central Asia & the Caucasus
Uncover the Silk Road heritage and time-honoured traditions of this fascinating part of the world. Uzbekistan’s historic trading cities flaunt dazzling madrasahs and mausoleums, while sandstone fortresses and castles dot the desert landscapes. You can’t fail to be impressed by the architecture in Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva. Admire exquisite tiles and magnificent mausoleums as well as explore several UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Leaving behind its Soviet past and forging ahead to be part of a new world, Uzbekistan is a fascinating destination with welcoming people and a distinctive culture to discover.
The little-visited countries of Armenia and Georgia, meanwhile, reward travellers with unspoilt scenery, charming mountain communities and ancient winemaking towns. Forging their own identities following the era of the Soviet Union, makes this a fascinating time to explore both countries as they transition. We get to dine with local families and learn traditional recipes, sip ararat brandy and sample fine wines. Food delights include Khinkali Georgian dumplings stuffed with meat and spices.
