WHERE TO GO IN ASIA

Central Asia
Stretching from the Black Sea to China with vast imperial cities, stunning natural wilderness, ancient trading routes, and grand mosques and churches, Central Asia is one of the least travelled regions on the planet. Long hidden behind the Iron Curtain, that situation is gradually changing with more and more people discovering the charms of this extra-ordinary region.
The Far East
The countries of the eastern rim of Asia pack a serious cultural punch and offer many unique experiences you'll find nowhere else on the planet. A melting pot of neon-lit cities, historical wonders, futuristic transportation, time honoured traditions and incredible natural beauty, holidays in the Far East promise something for everyone.
Indian Subcontinent
It may no longer be the Jewel in the Crown but the Indian Subcontinent continues to entrance visitors to this day. With landscapes stretching from palm fringed Indian Ocean beaches to the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas, a glorious history stretching back to the dawn of civilisation and a melting pot of religions and cultures - it could be a life's work trying to get to know every corner of this incredible region.
South East Asia
Take a holiday in South East Asia and you will understand why people are drawn back time after time… Stunning, palm-fringed beaches, clear, warm seas, delicious local food and produce, friendly locals and a culture as rich as their history. How can you resist?
