What draws visitors to Japan every year? It’s the cherry blossoms blooming in spring, the world-famous mountains, and the delicious sushi dishes. It’s the country’s traditional culture, juxtaposed against towering skyscrapers and high-speed travel. Sound good? Experience all of this and more on our Japan Unmasked tour. Starting in Tokyo, discover some of the city’s famous neighbourhoods, including Harajuku and Ginza. Then, explore the rest of the country – try authentic Japanese cuisine, see Mount Fiji, and visit the Atomic Bomb Dome in Hiroshima. This tour is tailed by a cruise on Lake Ashi in Hakone, and a chance to see the Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto.

Choose between swimming in the Indian Ocean and wildlife-spotting game drives on a trip to Tanzania. Visit the Serengeti National Park on our Legendary Landscapes of Tanzania tour and keep your eyes peeled for the locals, including elephants, lions and giraffes. Learn how coffee is made and sample a fresh pot while visiting a local farm in Karatu, and climb into the Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s biggest volcanic caldera. If relaxing breaks are more your style, head for Zanzibar, just off Tanzania’s coast. Spend your time island hopping around this archipelago of white-sand beaches and tranquil resorts, or stretch out under a palm tree for a week or two.

Rammed with history, dramatic landscapes and vibrant cities, Vietnam has plenty to keep adventurers busy. Pick up breakfast at Can Tho’s Floating Market, and look out over miles of rice paddy fields from Hang Múa Mountain. Meanwhile, Ho Chi Minh City offers up rooftop bars and war museums. Alternatively, board a cruise around Halong Bay, or catch a water puppet show in Hanoi. You can see Vietnam’s best bits on one of our Multi-Centre breaks. But, if you’d prefer a laidback getaway, try Phu Quoc. The island flaunts footprint-free beaches, bars perched on the sand, plus the chance to experience Vietnamese culture at the night market in Duong Dong.
