Tours in the Far East

Tours of the Far East conjure images of rolling green rice paddies, golden sandy beaches and frenetic cities full of culture. Whether you want to discover the Great Wall of China, explore the unique culinary traditions of Japan or see the orang utans in Borneo, we can arrange a Far East Asia tour to suit you.

Our Far East tours allow you to explore at your own pace. Book a private trip or choose one of our small group options and see some of Asia’s most magnificent sights with the help of our experts. Nature lovers should book our Komodo Trails tour. See the unique landscapes which help the majestic komodo dragons to survive and spend two days exploring the island. Snorkel in the clear waters of the sea, see wild pigs, buffalo and exotic birds and keep an eye out for dolphins on your boat trip. Our Borneo Explorer Tour takes you into the rain forests of Borneo which house the endangered orang utans. Trek with local guides, enjoy a luxury beach stay and explore the farmer’s markets and lively little towns which pepper the island.

For a longer tour of the Far East which takes you through Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia, book our Grand Tour of Indochina. You’ll see the waterfalls and French colonial towns of Laos and the spectacular natural landscapes and fascinating history of Vietnam. Finish in Cambodia where you can discover beaches, a rich history and ancient temples. To experience Vietnam in more detail, choose A Journey Through Vietnam Tour. This 10 day tour shows you the white powdery beaches, lively cities, rural villages and French and Chinese influences of the country.
