Join us on a holiday to East Asia

From the winding Yangtze river to the cherry blossoms of spring, expect your camera roll to be bursting with colourful scenes.

East Asia is home to some of the world’s oldest and most powerful civilisations. Centuries of dynastic reign, as well as the growing economic prosperity in the present day, offers travellers an alluring blend of never-before-seen modernity and ancient history. On an East Asian holiday, you can marvel at the relics of dynasties gone by, particularly in China, where the Great Wall, the Terracotta Warriors, and the Forbidden city still tell tales of power and reign.

With the monsoonal climate of East Asia ushering in warm, rainy summers, there is a beautiful range of tropical environments to be found across the subcontinent, including the beach paradise that is China’s Hainan Island and Kyushu, in Japan, where waterfalls and hot springs abound.

Or if it's fine dining and exquisite culinary tradition you are seeking, book an escorted tour to Japan, where you can savour fresh sashimi, delectable steamed gyoza, or vibrant matcha desserts. Beyond the incredible dining, you can take in the majestic shrines surrounding 12,000 ft high Mt Fuji, experience the slower pace of a traditional tea ceremony, and all that the Land of the Rising Sun can offer seasoned or novice travellers alike. 

You can also head to East Asia for no other reason than to unwind and relax onboard one of our Far East cruise offerings, sailing from the high-rise buildings and street food scenes in Hong Kong to the UNESCO-listed Sengan-en Gardens in Kagoshima, Japan.
