Exotic, beguiling and endlessly fascinating

You may have ordered a Chinese takeaway, nibbled on sashimi or made your own pad Thai, but you haven't eaten Far East cuisine until you've tried chilli crab in a Singapore hawker centre, breakfasted on sushi at a Tokyo fish market, or tracked down the perfect Peking duck in Beijing. For us, the food is the best way to taste this delicious region's culture, each dish as distinctive as the nation that devours it.   

Highlights of Far East

Thrilling Cities

The Far East's cities are a dizzying, unmissable sensory overload. From buying spicy green papaya in the sprawling markets of Bangkok and sipping Singapore Slings in the place they were named after, to catching the famous Star Ferry in Hong Kong, looking down from the twin Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, and meeting the Japanese Mickey at Tokyo Disney Resort; get set for the most fascinating culture clash of your life.

Natural Beauty

With powdery, pure, white shores, tropical islands, pristine coral reefs, mighty mountains and verdant forests, the Far East is blessed with pockets of paradise. Drift past jagged limestone karsts rising from the water in China, Thailand and Vietnam; see Japan come alive with cherry blossoms overlooked by snow capped Mount Fuji; float over Langkawi's forested valleys and clusters of islets by cable car, and fill your camera with the green landscapes of Vietnam's Mekong Delta

Inspiring Culture

The countries of the Far East can feel so unique that their cultures can't fail to fascinate. Fall for intricate wood carvings and batik prints in bohemian Bali, watch graceful geisha dances, traditional tea ceremonies and powerful sumo wrestling in Japan, absorb yourself in the intricate moves and costumes of traditional Thai dance drama, and step into tranquil, incense-scented pagodas in Vietnam.

Fascinating History

The evocative history of the Far East lingers throughout the region. Visit the temples of Angkor in Cambodia; follow The Great Wall and face the 10,000-strong Terracotta Army in China; pay your respects at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial in Japan; lose yourself in the stories on the walls of the Grand Palace in Thailand; and experience the labyrinthine Cu Chi Tunnels used during the Vietnam War.
