Asia

Not to be missed

Ricefields, pristine green landscapes, deserts, ancient temples: these are the first images that come to one's mind when thinking about Asia. But this enormous continent, given its extension, is even more than this. A trip to Asia cannot just be defined as a holiday. It is an adventure discovering faraway populations and a chance to find oneself again, close to nature and traditions that the Western world has long forsaken.

The unexpected magic of India with its grand Taj Mahal, the majestic Great Wall in China, the harmonious mix of aggressive modernity and timeless traditions in Japan, the stunning beaches and landscapes of Sri Lanka, Indonesia and Thailand, the endless ricefields of Vietnam: Asia is full or surprises for those who visit it for the first time but is always able to amaze returning visitors as well.

A tailormade tour or journey in this huge continent is bound to be unique and unforgettable, the perfect chance to meet local people, such as the nomadic tribes in Mongolia or Kyrgyzstan, the numerous ethnic groups in Indonesia, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam.  In Bhutan and Nepal you'll come across the serene peaceful smiles of the people living among the highest peaks in the world. They are incredibly hospitable and willing to share their traditions and customs with you, no matter where you come from.

Asia is also an interesting destination for cultural trips, the pagodas and temples in Myanmar are a feast for the eyes, the Angkor Wat in Cambodia is a mystic experience that everyone should try at least once in a lifetime. The sea and coastline of Thailand, Indonesia and Sri Lanka are unmissable destinations for those who love to relax on dream beaches. If you are looking for a safari instead, explore Rathambore National Park in India and look for the world-famous tigers, or Yala National Park in Sri Lanka to meet the elephants.

If you choose to travel to Asia in spring, you will be at a loss whether to chosse the Holi festival in India, an event involving all inhabitants of the main cities, who crowd the streets getting dirty with colorful dust celebrating love, or the cherry blossom in Japan. In autum there is the eagle hunting festival in Mongolia, celebrating a tradition that the nomadic populations of the desert pass on through the generations. The most trained can even try their hands (and feet) with a trekking experience to Everest's base camp, surely an achievement to remember forever.

During your tailormade tour or vacation in Asia you will be guided by local experts, who will make you understand the deeper essence of every place, favouring interaction with local people and revealing some little secrets. No matter what kind of trip you are looking for, Asia has what you need.

Perché fare un viaggio in Asia

Asia is the largest and most popolous continent on Earth, it has 51 countries, and it is the only one washed by three different Oceans: Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean and Pacific Ocean.

Given its extension, it boasts different natural landscapes and climates. Asia is home to highest mount on Earth: Mount Everest, but also the deepest point, the Challenger Deep, at the bottom of the Mariana Trench. It encompasses deserts, tropical climates and glacial areas. This is why the temperature can reach -70°C in the coldest regions, such as Siberia, but at the same time the termometer can signal +54°C in the hottest areas, such as the Lut Desert.

No matter what kind of vacation you are looking for, Asia has what you need. India will charm you with its deep religiousness, sacred Ganges River in Varanasi, Taj Mahal and the mysterious Khajuraho temples, the colorful cities of Rajasthan and Thar desert, Kerala backwaters and Goa beaches. Bhutan and Nepal will leave you breathless thanks to the silent monasteries perched on the mountains. Here you'll find the highest peaks in the world in the Himalaya range. And what shall we say about China, with the grand China Wall, and Japan, where the tradition of the samurai is still alive and the beautiful cherry trees blossoming in spring? There are plenty of places to be discovered here, guided by local experts.

South East Asia is a unique natural paradise, with ricefields, waterfalls, natural parks and dream beaches. Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Philippines, Indonesia and Bali: your holiday here will be unforgettable, thanks to the simple but warm hospitality of its inhabitants. Then there's Myanmar with Bagan temples, perfect for a balloon ride, Lake Inle with its fishermen, glimmering Yangon: former Burma is the ideal destination for anyone willing to encounter exotic populations and faraway cultures. Malaysia, boasting the perfect climate almost all year long, is perfect for a tailormade vacation combining wild nature, cosmopolitan cities (don't miss the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur!) and beautiful beaches.

And then Sri Lanka, the home of the relic of Buddha's sacred tooth. During your holiday in former Ceylon you'll get lost among ricefields, pristine nature, wildlife, including the elephants, and the bizarre Sigirya rock, an ancient fort in the shape of an elephant.

In Asia you can find the huge megalopolises, the largest and most modern in the world, for example in Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, China and South Korea, but on the other hand, here the last nomadic populations on Earth also live. We offer you the chance to stay in their households, for example in Mongolia, trying eagle hunting, or in Kyrgyzisthan, riding horses with the locals of Issyk -kul Lake, listening to their stories and joining their dances.

Whatever you expectations on this huge continent, Asia will exceed them all. Thanks to our local travel experts, you can create your own tailormade tour from scratch, even combining different destination. You'll truly experience the trip of a lifetime!
