So many lands, and all so different, that it seems strange to gather them together in one section, but the Western perception of this region dates back thousands of years. The one constant thought was that, whilst the lands surrounding the Mediterranean were familiar, to travel beyond the Middle East was to take a great adventure.
And today we still think these wonderful lands are the perfect choice if you are seeking a great adventure. India, with its enticing melting pot of religions, cultures, foods, traditions, scenery, climates and languages, invites you back time and again, and still you barely scrape the surface.
South East Asia is a breathtaking juxtaposition of the super modern, with its cosmopolitan cities bristling with their extraordinary technology, alongside a rural countryside unchanged in hundreds of years, all interlaced with wonderful architecture, rich history and a vibrant but gentle welcome.
Venture further still for the luxuriant islands and seas of the coral triangle, the wealth of history in Vietnam, and extraordinary China, an amazing land with a burgeoning economy and a mighty history. Beyond that, the mysterious shores of Japan, Taiwan, Korea and the Russian Far East.
A magical land of great natural beauty, with extraordinary history and charming people, Burma (or Myanmar) is becoming increasingly accessible by river.
There’s remote, and then there’s the Russian Far East – this extraordinary region is like another world, with amazing scenery, isolated settlements and abundant wildlife.
Lying between the Indian and Pacific Oceans are the magical island groups of Indonesia, Borneo and Papua New Guinea, set around the extraordinary coral triangle.
