Hiroshima

The city of Hiroshima encountered a devastating nuclear bomb attack by the United States Army Air Forces on August 6th 1945. To this effect, most of the city was destroyed but has since been rebuilt, becoming the largest city in the Chugoku region. The Hiroshima Peace Memorial (now a UNESCO World Heritage site) serves as a memorial to this historic event.

The Great Wall of China

The iconic Great Wall began as a defence system against invasions from the north. It became the world's largest military structure and border control, as well as encouraging trade under the Ming dynasty (1368- 1644). Today, it is an extremely popular UNESCO World Heritage site with the entire structure measuring an incredible 13,171 miles in length.

Nilgiri Mountain Railway

The Nilgiri Mountain Railway runs for 30 miles through the slopes of the Nilgiri Mountain range, in the south Indian state of Tamil Nadu. One of 3 mountain railways of India, it enjoys coveted UNESCO World Heritage status. The train, mostly hauled by steam engine, travels from Mettupalayam to Ooty, and is the only rack railway in India. Plans for construction began in 1854 when the British started frequenting Ooty to get some respite from India's tropical summers, and the views have changed little since then; passing the verdant forests of the Blue Mountains, so-called because the entire range turns blue when the Kurinji flowers bloom once every 12 years.

“If, as was the case with me, you have not visited Switzerland but have been aware how stunningly beautiful it is, then this tour is a great way to find out for yourself. The all inclusive approach is helpful as some days are very full and quite tiring so it’s a relief to have dinner and drinks arranged for you.

“Wernigrode was a lovely place and the hotel was nice. The discount vouchers were useful and we we used a few of them. It was unfortunate that we had problems with the trains in Germany, but we managed to explore all three of the lines on the Harz Mountain Railway System by ourselves and still met up with the party at Quedlinburg with plenty of time to look round part of the town.
