Extraordinary Japan & China holiday

Trek past a simmering volcano, enjoy the peace inside tranquil temples, witness the glamour of geisha girls and get up close to majestic deer. Yes, these really are just some of the amazing adventures you will experience on the Japan and China Tour. Allow yourself to get swept away by the mystical charm of the region as you sail through dramatic river gorges or whizz around in a rickshaw. But when your energy fails you, simply flake out and catch a tan in the grounds of the many luxurious hotels you will stay in. This 10-day holiday starts off in Tokyo – famed for its ability to dazzle with its traditional culture but also excite with its passion for everything new. Climb Mount Fuji, where you can walk past Owakudani’s ‘Boiling Valley’ before settling into a luxury hotel that sits on top of a hill surrounded by volcanic crater walls, and offers spectacular views of the mountains and lakes in Hakone. Your final stop in Japan will be Kyoto – celebrated for its sublime gardens, colourful shrines and geishas scurrying to secret liaisons.

Then discover the rich history and religious heritage in the Far East as you travel into China. Wander through many landmarks including the Great Wall of China  - an engineering triumph which meanders majestically over the peaks and hills of Beijing and many other provinces. This package include flights, accommodation, meals as stated, a meet and greet service, sightseeing as stated and transfers.
