Asia- the worlds largest and most populous continent with a population of over 4 billion people! Steeped in history and culture and jam-packed with buzzing cities, futuristic buildings, majestic temples, World Heritage Sites and some of the world's most beautiful coastline.
The Republic of India - second most populous country in the world and former British colony. All of the world’s major religions put in an appearance here, the best represented being Hindu (hence the many ‘sacred’ cows causing traffic jams in the capital, New Delhi!) as well as Muslims, Christians and Buddhists. The hustle and bustle is virtually constant, but there are always peaceful, spiritual spots that you can escape to easily.
The Kingdom of Thailand, is located in the heart of Southeast Asia and shares borders with Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia and Myanmar. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty, also well known for its appetising food and the people renowned for their friendly manner.
Thailand Experience – 4 weeks
The Socialist Republic of Vietnam is bordered by China, Laos and Cambodia. It is the 13th most populous country in the world and although it has had a reasonably troubled past, the name Vietnam does tend to conjure up pictures of quaintness and tranquillity, especially when you consider the fact that it has thousands of miles of beautiful coastline to its name! Occupied by the French from the mid-1800s until shortly after the end of WWII, it is not surprising that the influence is obvious, especially in the big cities, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh (formerly Saigon), so much so that you may even think you’re in France, when you’re strolling down the wide colonial boulevards.
Vietnam Experience – 4 weeks
The country we know today as China actually derives from a long line of smaller civilisations dating back six millenia. China's influence of modern life is nothing short of remarkable having given the world a huge array of inventions such a paper, the compass and even pasta. The country is steeped in traditions and ancient practices and it is all just waiting to be rediscovered by you.
China's rapid development over the last 20 years has helped transform it into a global economic super power but its historic roots are here to stay. You only have to visit one of the many temples, the Great Wall or the Terracotta Army to see that!
China Ultimate Adventure- 4 weeks
This incredible circular tour of China gives you an unforgettable view of the real China. The volume and variety of experiences included on the itinerary make this trip quite unique. You'll see all of China's unmissible attractions such as the Great Wall, Terracotta Army and the loveable panadas, but you'll also go off the beaten track to places tourists rarely get to visit, such as a rural farm in the QinLing Mountains. On top of this you'll get the chance to do some volunteering at an orphanage or a soup kitchen for homeless people.
This trip aims to provide you with a safe, interesting, hassle free and unforgettable experience during your epic 5,458km journey in the Middle Kingdom!
