Project Description

Asia

The Asian continent is home to some of the most spectacular cities in the world, like Kyoto, Toyko, Hong Kong, Seoul, Singapore, Beijing, Bangkok and Siem Reap, Cambodia jus to name a few. These major cities are complemented by vast countryside, making up an appealing combination throughout Asia of secluded and fast-paced environments.
Not only is Asia known for it’s mouth-watering dishes, but it is also known for its many street vendors. Instead of the best food being found in fancy restaurants like you may typically be used to, you can actually find some of the tastiest meals from the carts and stalls lining the streets in many Asian cities. If you are on a mission for street food, some of the top cities where you will find success are Penang, Bangkok, Fukuoka, Hanoi, Singapore, and Seoul, just to name a few.
Asia is home to more temples than any other continent in the world. It is also the place where many of the world’s mainstream religions and beliefs were born. Therefore, a visit to Asia would not be complete without stopping to see at least a few of its majestic temples. Angkor Wat, one of the most famous temples, is the largest religious monument in the world and is located in Cambodia. Balanced on the edge of a 3,000 foot high cliff, the Taktsang Dzong temple is a well-recognized symbol of Bhutan. Finally, the Temple of Heaven dating back to the early 1400s is an impressive site to see and is also surrounded by a large public park, the grounds where many locals will practice tai chi throughout the week. However, these few barely scratch the surface of the incredible architecture, history, and detail that is found in the many temples throughout Asia.

VIETNAM & CAMBODIA: A GRAND ADVENTURE

Luckily, there’s so much to walk toward on this colorful tour of Southeast Asia, including the fascinating wartime tunnels of Cu Chi, a fishing lesson on the Thu Bon River, and a breezy city cyclo ride around vibrant Hanoi. The picturesque pagodas of Hue and Hanoi are just a taste of what’s to come at the mystical temples of Angkor. Inside the “City of the God Kings,” you’ll find the architecturally magnificent ruins of Angkor Wat delightfully much more than you bargained for.
This tour is limited to an average of just 20 guests per departure. There’s always room to roam with extra space between you and other travelers—while still getting up close and personal to the experiences you’ve been dreaming of. Small-Group Discoveries include all the features of a traditional Globus escorted tour, complete with expert Tour Director, Driver, and Local Guides who ensure that your health and safety is our top priority.
