If you’re after a world of incredible sights with exotic cuisines, endless market shopping and a bustling nightlife - North East Asia is your gateway to an affordable travel dream. Whether it's the snow-capped mountains on your trip to Tibet, the Silk Road of China, the buzzing precinct of Hong Kong or the fluttering cherry blossoms of Japan, this is a landscape of endless possibilities.
Holidays to China
It’s one of the largest countries in the world – and the most beautiful. Thousands of travellers each year flock to spend their holidays in China, whether to discover the bustling cities of Shanghai, Guilin, Hangzhou and Beijing or trek along the Great Wall. The Silk Road is a must for those who wish to embed themselves in history, as is visiting the Terracotta Warriors in Xian. No holiday in China is complete, however, without a cruise down the breathtaking Yangtze River, which winds through various provinces and offers tourists the chance to glimpse at incredible mountains, scenic valleys and riverside villages and temples.
Holidays to Hong Kong
Hong Kong is an active, vibrant place, where you can shop til you drop and explore a brilliant melting pot of animated culture and picturesque landscapes. Holidays in Hong Kong mostly centre around Kowloon and the Mid-Levels, with Victoria Peak offering glorious, bird’s-eye views of Hong Kong. To make the most of holidays in Hong Kong, travellers should also head to Lamma Island to indulge in exquisite seafood dining or for a cultural day-trip, explore the Big Buddha and Po Lin Monastery on Lantau Island. There are also plenty of unique activities you can do in Hong Kong, such as eating snake soup.
Holidays to Taiwan
The island of Taiwan is a medley of energetic cities surrounded by spectacular forests, rivers and coastlines. The Capital, Taipei, is the heart of Taiwan, with a wealth of shopping, entertainment and dumplings to be had. Travellers should head up to Taipei 101 for stunning city views or visit the Beitou Hotsprings for a wonderfully relaxing experience. Further south, tourists can discover the marvellous sights of Taroko Gorge and Yushan Mountain and discover the dozens of temples and beaches along the way.
Holidays to South Korea
Often overlooked by international travellers, South Korea is filled with infinite options. Tourists will find much of the country’s action in Seoul, where popular past-times include the 10-block Dongdaemun Market, Bongeunsa Temple, Gyeongbok-gung Palace and the Seolleung Park Royal Tombs. While few travellers venture outside of Seoul, the countryside is decorated with splendid mountains, temples, villages and rice paddies. Dadohae Haesang National Park, Gyeongju and the Bamboo village of Damyang should also be on the must-see list.
Holidays to Japan
There’s no place quite like Japan, with its “futuristic” ads, serene temples, late-night businessman and beautiful cherry blossoms. Travellers to Tokyo will love the craziness of Ginza and the tranquillity of the Imperial Gardens, while those in Osaka can indulge in delicious noodles and cuisines or visit Osaka Castle. Kyoto offers tourists the chance to explore the beautiful sakura-draped landscapes (many temples and geishas can also be seen here) and then get onboard the best ski trip and make the most of the ski season in Niseko. For a trip down the history avenue, travellers can also visit Okinawa and visit the bomb site of Hiroshima from WWII.
