Asia Unlocked for First Time Travellers – Or those who just want more
Asia by Goway offers 3 introductory Asia getaways, each under $2500 including flights.
For culture-loving travellers, Asia is the ultimate frontier, filled with empires as ancient and diverse as they are colourful. 45 UNESCO World Heritage Sites (the second highest number in the world) have helped make China the world’s third most visited country. Japan continues to inspire with its imaginative culture, cutting-edge modernity and grand imperial history. While India remains the embodiment of exotic travel, overloading the senses with its splendid sights, culture and food, not to mention several hundred languages!
Goway’s 9 day China tour encompasses Beijing, Xi-an and Shanghai, the perfect trio of cities to get a taste of China both ancient and new. The Great Wall of China, Tiananmen Square and the Summer Palace all show off the ancient splendour of Beijing. The Terracotta Army still stands guard over the tomb of China’s first Emperor, Qin Shi Huang in Xi-an, while in Shanghai, gleaming skyscrapers tower over Huangpu River and the Bund’s colonial past.
A good Japan tour is all about contrasts! With 8 days to spend, bustling Tokyo and historic Kyoto make an ideal pairing. Amid the dizzying skyscrapers and neon of the modern capital lies a treasure trove of museums, palaces, and the world-renowned Ginza shopping district. The new Tokyo Sky Tree gives travellers a bird’s eye view over the world’s largest metropolis, while Kabuki-za – reopened in April this year after extensive renovations – offers a theatrical spectacle unique to this incredible country. If it all gets too much, there’s always time for quiet contemplation at Ueno Park or the Meiji Shrine before going on to Kyoto. Japan’s ancient capital for over 1,000 years, Kyoto boasts its own 17-site designation on the UNESCO World Heritage List and ancient traditions abound, both in festivals and everyday life.
The Golden Triangle is the perfect India tour for first timers, encompassing three visitor must-sees over 7 days. Delhi has been the political centre of Indian history for decades. Once the culture shock passes, it offers sights such as the Red Fort, India Gate and Raj Ghat, the cremation site of Mahatma Gandhi. Nearby Agra is home to the magnificent Taj Mahal – a must-stop for any visitor, while Jaipur is Rajasthan in all its splendour and colour! Built in the 16th century, this sandstone city is one of the most beautiful in Asia, epitomized by the Amber Fort overlooking Lake Moata.
A visit to Asia is an individual experience and Asia by Goway’s Basics getaways are designed to maximize flexibility. As such, each provides all transport and first-class accommodation. Travellers then choose their own extra inclusions to create their own holiday of a lifetime! Whether it’s China, Japan or India, each makes an unforgettable introduction to travel across a continent where no two countries are alike.
Each trip is priced at under $2500 and includes international and internal airfares, guided airport transfers, accommodation with daily breakfast and all taxes. The India package also includes escorted group excursions.
