Our Asian Luxury Holiday Highlights
With incredible landscapes, fascinating history, unique culture, and a huge volume of iconic sights to explore, Asia has something for every traveller. Known for its stunning temples, such as Angkor Wat and the Taj Mahal, the sprawling Asian continent is also celebrated for its pristine beaches, bustling cities, world renowned spas, flavour-packed food and so much more.
Asia is a patchwork of incredible landscapes, each providing a more breathtaking panorama than the last. You’ll find enchanting lakes, waterfalls and rivers meandering through verdant tropical jungle, sprawling rice paddies and epic mountain peaks, like immense Mount Fuji.
If sun and sand is more to your taste, then the beaches in Thailand, Bali and Vietnam are amongst the best in the world and host soft sands and azure waters. The Mekong River flows through China, Burma, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam, making a river cruise down this storied waterway the perfect opportunity to see more Asian nations and landscapes. On your journey, you’ll pass through lush jungle and tropical greenery teeming with wildlife, and have the opportunity to dock in incredible cities.
Asia's White Sand Beaches
The beaches in Asia attract sun-seekers from all over the world. On an Asia beach holiday, you’ll find pristine sands, stunning seas and enough high-octane watersports to keep thrill-seekers occupied.
There's also a host of incredible diving opportunities and the coral reef found in Cambodia, Singapore, Taiwan, the Philippines, Vietnam, China, and Indonesia is stunning. A trip to any stretch of Asian coast has its own set of delights.
Pink Beach in Indonesia is famous for its unique pink sands, Cát Bà Island in Vietnam and Miyako Island in Japan are ringed with picturesque coastline and offer enchanting panoramic views, while Goa in India has some of longest sun-kissed beaches in Asia. You’ll also find turquoise seas and golden sand in Koh Samui in Thailand, Borneo in Malaysia, and Kuta in Bali.
Asia's Thrilling Adventures
An Asia luxury holiday offers some thrilling adventures. In Japan, epic Mount Fuji is desperate to be climbed, and you could even explore the stunning landscapes from a unique perspective on a four-wheel drive or helicopter tour. Then in China there is so much history to experience and a walk along amongst the iconic temples are a must.
Or, why not hire a kayak and explore some of the incredible waterways under your own steam? For a more laid back approach to exploration, the Maharajas’ Express offers a once-in-a-lifetime train journey across India’s captivating landscapes. There are also plenty of opportunities to get closer to beautiful Asian wildlife, whether you spend time with majestic elephants in Thailand’s southern jungles or meet the inquisitive orangutans in Borneo’s rainforests.
Asia's Sacred Spaces and Ancient Wonders
Asia is home to more breathtaking sacred spaces and ancient temples than anywhere else in the world. These incredible temples represent thousands of years of history and display several entirely unique architectural styles.
Cambodia is a nation of temples, with massive Angkor Wat being the most famous. Bayon Temple is well worth a visit too and has 200 incredibly well carved giant smiling faces to explore. Luang Prabang in Laos is also home to a variety of Buddhist temples including Wat Xiengthong, a culturally important monastery with an iconic layered sloping roof. Thailand’s Wat Rong Khun, known as the white temple, is also highly recommended, as are the towering Senso-ji, the oldest and most famous temple in Tokyo, and White Horse Temple in Luoyang, China.
Tantalizing street food in Hong Kong, spicy and fragrant curries in India, and authentic chow mien in China. What do they all have in common? Incredible flavors that have to be tasted in their native countries to be truly experienced.
Asian food has made a significant mark on today’s global palate, but nothing could beat the real thing, cooked by experts, fresh from the wok. An Asian food tour is the stuff of legend, and you could find yourself exploring the food markets of Thailand, the French-infused fare of Vietnam and the delightful sushi bars of Japan. Expect plenty of noodles, sticky rice, spring rolls and delicious meats - just don’t forget your chopsticks! Why not bring some skills home with you and ask our Travel Specialists about arranging some authentic Asian cooking lessons?
