Goway's New Asia Adventures Take Travellers Beyond the Great Wall
With China's tourism industry growing like never before, Goway is opening the door on the great dragon's neighbours.
China has been called the last great frontier for Western travellers. But some intrepid globetrotters are looking to China’s neighbours for new adventures. Tibet and Nepal have long offered unparalleled trekking shrouded in spirituality, while Mongolia has serious appeal for travellers in search of ‘the great unknown’, with a unique culture descended from what was once the world’s most powerful empire.
Goway’s new China, Tibet and Nepal is the ultimate trip for travellers interested in Tibetan Buddhism. This 16-day journey starts with China’s most iconic images – the Great Wall and the sights of Beijing, before heading west into Tibet. The city of Lhasa is the heart of Tibetan Buddhism and former home of the Dalai Lama. The trip then weaves through spectacular Himalayan scenery via Mount Everest Base Camp into Nepal. The final destination is Kathmandu, where guests take in more sacred sights including Swayambhunath Monkey Temple and Patan, one of the world’s oldest Buddhist cities.
China, Tibet and Nepal has departures from August to October 2014, starting from US$5290 from Los Angeles or CA$5750 from Vancouver, including airfare with Cathay Pacific.
One of Asia’s most mysterious countries, Mongolia is surprisingly accessible and offers a completely unique culture for travellers up for the adventure. Guests who book one of Goway’s three selected Mongolia tours by June 30, 2014 will enjoy 10% off the price. The 5-day Mongolia Stopover is an ideal introduction to the land of Genghis Khan, perfect for those with limited time, or as an addition to a China vacation. The 8-day Mongolia in Depth offers a more detailed look at the country including a tented camp experience, while Goway’s 12-day Gobi & Karakorum is the ultimate immersion in Mongol culture.
Goway also offers its Best of China tour, an air-inclusive 13-day trip that includes Beijing, Chengdu, Shanghai and Hong Kong. Priced from just US$4090 from Los Angeles or CA$4295 from Vancouver, this is an ideal introduction to China showcasing four of its most popular and memorable cities, along with breathtaking natural sights within this diverse country.
