Far East Holidays

Exotic and beguiling

Offering the perfect blend of intoxicating culture, beautiful beaches and world-class cuisine, the Far East is hard to beat. Renowned for its amazing service and fantastic value for money, it’s also home to some of the world’s best scenery and heritage sites; from China’s Terracotta Army to the stunning Mount Fuji in Japan and Vietnam’s ancient ruins.

With such an array of locations on offer, it’s easy to combine multiple countries in one trip when visiting the Far East. Hop from Bangkok to Cambodia and anywhere in-between to see more of this beautiful corner of the earth. No matter whether you’re after a bustling city break, an idyllic beach escape or a cultural adventure, the Far East will captivate you. 

Why not discover Malaysia on a tour of the Cameron Highlands followed by a spa retreat on the beach or if beaches are high on your agenda, let the Philippines tempt you -  with over 7000 islands all with a mix of Asian, Spanish and Middle Eastern cultures, this rising star of the Far East is unlike anywhere else. If you are seeking adventure, look no further than Indonesia. Home to the fierce Komodo Dragon, here you can get up close and personal with this fearsome predator as well as seeing untouched islands home to lakes, mountains and beaches.

Top Tips from our Experts

Tina

Destination Specialist

“It’s easy to have a holiday of contrast in the Far East. I love to mix it up with some hectic time in a city, followed by some beach time on a tiny sleepy island. And then, some time getting close to nature – hiking or maybe canoeing – you never need to do the same thing twice.” 

Nick

Senior Destination Manager

“The value for money you get in the Far East is amazing. Not only is the cost of living cheap – but the great level of accommodation and service you can get is so surprising compared with what you pay.” 

Karen

Destination Executive

“It’s always a bit of a culture shock when arriving in the Far East. But after a few days of taking in the sights, sounds and (sometimes strange) smells, it feels welcoming and exciting. I would suggest taking it easy for the first few days to get your bearings - what better way than a massage on the beach?  Then dive into the culture and experiences around you, and have fun.”
