Like an assault to the senses, Asia is a cacophony of colour, sights, tastes, sounds and smells –each one more deliciously different to the last. Delve under the shiny, tourist-friendly veneer and you'll find a continent of incredible riches: Beijing's tech-wizardry gives way to humble hutongs, Singapore's 'fried rice paradise' unfolds a burgeoning culinary scene and Vietnam's tumultuous history is being overtaken by a coffee culture that rivals Europe. In Thailand, once the preserve of the backpacker, you'll find out why it's known as the 'land of a thousand smiles' as its hospitable people propel you through its sultry jungles and island paradises to Bangkok, where you can tickle your taste buds with the tantalizing, multi layered tastes of sweet, salty, bitter, and spicy. 
Ancient wonders and sacred spaces abound, from the glittering pagodas in Myanmar to the crumbling, tree-twisted ruins of Angkor Wat in Cambodia, where a more recent history has left indelible influences on a kindly population that still bears the scars. This continent is far more than its ancient history, however. From towering Tokyo to hustling Hong Kong there's a frenetic energy that surrounds its cosmopolitan cities, and that's before you even venture off the beaten track into the countryside. Japan has skiing that beats the Alps hands down, and Borneo jungles to rival the Amazon. Asia is a continent that constantly invites you to dig a little deeper.

Asia with A&K
The term Far East evokes a cultural as well as geographic separation; it conjures up images of the exotic.

With classic images of Japanese cuisine, tea ceremonies and Samurai warriors, there can be few countries that seem so familiar to us yet are intrinsically alien. This is where our experience, local knowledge and behind-the-scenes access are invaluable. Discover an unknown way of life as you step into another world - traditional ryokan inns and the studios of calligraphers, vibrant cities entrenched in the modern world but steeped in the traditions of geisha culture, sumo wrestling and Kabuki dramas.

Similarly, China conjures up images of its iconic Great Wall and Forbidden City, yet less well known is the physical and cultural diversity of its more rural regions: tropical monsoon forests, snow-crowned mountains, beautifully preserved rural Chinese towns, and an unmatched patchwork quilt of cultural groups.

Our experience of China stretches back to when Mao was still in power, when his eponymous suits were de rigueur and the Little Red Book was more than just a tourist souvenir. Yet we've never stopped rediscovering this fascinating country and unearthing new gems. Our team in China will take great pleasure in helping you get beneath the skin of this absorbing country.


Malaysia is an exotic fusion of Chinese, Indian and British influences, whereas Indonesia, best known for the beaches of Bali, is made up of a myriad of islands and ethnic groups. Indo-China - Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos - is a region of smiles and serenity inextricably interwoven with the Buddhist heritage.
