Exotic Sights and Sounds of Asia

Exotic Sights and Sounds of Asia

Asia is a vast continent of exotic sights, sounds and tastes. Rich history, religion and culture define much of the area and provide visitors with more than just a holiday destination, but also a resounding sense of lessons learnt. Because the continent is so extensive, it also offers something different for every calibre of traveller. So, whether you enjoy an elephant ride through the Thailand mountains, a traipse up the Himalayas, diving in Malaysia, or partying in the Philippines, Asia guarantees an unforgettable experience.

For travellers staying in Tokyo, the Mt Fuji, Lake Ashi and Bullet Train Day Trip is a must. This involves a coach trip to the Fuji Visitor Centre, almost 2500 meters above sea level (depending on the weather). Lunch is optional, and can be enjoyed at the Japanese, Chinese, Western or Italian restaurants, with beautiful views.

After lunch, a cruise along Lake Ashi and a ride on the cable car both promise spectacular views of the landscape and of Hakone National Park. However, guests are advised not to get too relaxed as their trip back to Tokyo is on the Shinkansen – Japan’s super express bullet train!

Amusement parks are a major attraction in cities such as Japan and China. In fact, Forbes listed these parks as the most visited attractions of Eastern Asia. Universal Studios in Osaka (Japan) and the Happy Valley Theme Park in Shenzhen (China) are two of these favourites.

Tokyo Tower, Tea Ceremony and Sumida River Cruise Day Tour offers the prime opportunity to take in the vibrant sights of Tokyo at their best. This cruise is ideal for visitors who only have a limited time in Tokyo, as it showcases some of the major attractions in one tour. This exciting day trip takes visitors to the Tokyo Observatory Tower for stunning views of this cosmopolitan city, as well as to a traditional tea party at Happo-en, the Japanese Garden, home to many beautiful bonsais. Lunch is served at Chinzanso Restaurant, followed by the photo stop at the Imperial Plaza and a drive through Japan’s Ginza shopping area. Among many other exciting activities, this tour finally offers a boat ride on the Sumida River, which lasts for 40 minutes.

Another favourite amongst tourists to Asia and, specifically, Tokyo is the Nikko National Park Day Trip. This tour takes ones to Nikko, which is renowned as being the centre for Shinto and Buddhist worship. Stunning surrounds are explored by tourists and wild monkeys alike as they all take in the splendour of the famous shrines and artwork. Lunch and a stunning encounter with Lake Chuzenji (at the foot of the volcanic Mt Nantai) and the stunning Kegon Waterfall follow.

Sheer diversity and natural splendour ensure that Asia proves to be a most rewarding holiday destination for all.

I love travelling Asia as it’s the biggest continent which offers the best value for money when taking a holiday. Cheap flight, cheap hotel stays and the best scenery one can ask for. Be sure to see more destination tips by visiting my website.
