Far East Holidays are designed for those seeking adventure, excitement, relaxation, culture and historical sights, as well as breath taking natural surroundings, and for avid foodies. With a wealth of activities available, including sampling new dishes in kawaii (cute) cafés in Tokyo, exploring tranquil temples in Cambodia and relaxing on picturesque white sandy beaches in Thailand, there’s really something for everyone in Asia.
Learn about the history of the city Hiroshima, which is situated on Japan’s Honshu Island. Hiroshima was destroyed by an atomic bomb during World War II, killing thousands of people. Walk down some of the Great Wall of China, which was constructed over 500 years ago. The full length of the wall in northern China is thought to be around 21,000 km. After all that history, you’ll need to replenish your brain and body with some delicious traditional dishes, so dig into some authentic sushi in Japan or enjoy some Chow Mein in China.

Dedicate a day or two to the fascinating temples of Cambodia, including Angkor Wat, Bayon and the Preah Vihear Temple.

“Arriving in the Far East can sometimes give you a bit of culture shock. I highly recommend spending a few days adjusting with massages or a beach break before you dive into the culture.”
“The Far East is all about contrasts. Combine one of the world’s busiest cities before tucking away in a sleepy island town. Then head out into nature with canoeing or hiking to really experience the best of Asia.”
