Top 5 Asia Experiences

Asia is a large and intriguing continent, and you might be asking yourself; where to start? If your inspiration needs kick-starting, then we've picked 5 experiences you can use as a springboard for holiday planning.

1. Sunrise over the Himalayas

Start your day in the best possible way, watching the sun rise from behind the Himalayas. Travelling through Nepal, from Pokhara to Sarangkot, you'll be greeted by gorgeous views of the Annapurna Range of the Himalayas. Watch the first orange rays of the sun dissolve the last trace of darkness and reveal breathtaking mountain scenery.

As the sun climbs higher into the sky, it envelops the snow-clad peaks, giving them the appearance of being gilded in gold. The Annapurna Massif is one of the most dangerous of its kind for mountain climbers, also making it one of the most impressive; such landscapes allow you to experience the Himalayas in all their glory, and you can do so on our 'Discovering India & Nepal' holiday.

2. The Serenity of Mount Fuji

Perhaps the most acclaimed landmark in all of Japan, Mount Fuji is truly one of nature's greatest masterpieces and a highlight of any visit to this enticing country. Travelling there by fast-paced Bullet Train allows you to admire the almost perfectly symmetrical, snow-capped peak rising from a landscape of stunning forests and glistening lakes.

Its beauty is so powerful that UNESCO recognises Mount Fuji as a World Heritage site, citing it as a 'source of artistic inspiration.' A visit to this natural wonder, when you travel on our 'Adventures through Japan' holiday, is an extraordinary experience, and the time spent soaking up its splendour will stay with you for a lifetime.

3. The Great Wall of China

Winding its way across mile upon mile of arid desert, lush grassland and rugged mountains, the Great Wall of China is the world's longest wall and an incredible sight to behold. With a history dating back some 2,700 years, a visit to the wall today on our 'Discover China' holiday is like stepping into the pages of a history book. Trace the footsteps of those who walked upon this ancient structure thousands of years ago, drinking in the beautiful views and admiring the incredible feat of engineering; certainly, one of mankind's greatest accomplishments.

4. Magical Mumbai

Step into a land of movies, music, and masala when you visit the Bollywood heartland of Mumbai on our holiday, 'Tigers, the Taj Mahal, & Mumbai'. A city of stark contrasts, it's here you'll find the second most expensive home in the world, Antilia, as well as Mani Bhavan, Ghandi's former home, and a 140-year-old open-air laundry. Located on the shores of the Arabian Sea, Mumbai was once a cluster of 7 islands given to King Charles II as a dowry by the Portuguese in the 17th century. In the 18th century, land was reclaimed from the sea to unify the islands and thus the city was born.

5. The Taj Mahal

The Taj Mahal is a structure so renowned and so emblematic of India that finally seeing it with your own eyes can feel a little surreal. Located on the south bank of Agra's Yamuna River, this stunningly symmetrical building was commissioned by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in 1632 to be a mausoleum for his beloved wife. The structure is a visual masterpiece. Marvel at the pristine marble, decorated with an abundance of semi-precious stones and intricate calligraphy when you select our 'Ranthambore & India's Golden Triangle' holiday.
