On one of our 2017 Asia Tours, you'll rediscover the beauty and history of one of the world's oldest civilizations... You'll experience the Great Wall of China, Yangtze River, Ruins of Angkor, famous temples of Japan, Tiananmen Square, and the Terracotta Warriors.
Asia is a wondrous place filled with history that spans the ages, but how many of us can name ten (10) countries off the top of our heads... I mean, it's easy to bring up the obvious ones (China, Japan, Cambodia, Singapore...), but how many of us are able to name the not-so obvious ones?
When we think of Egypt, do we really think of Egypt as being part of Africa? If I were to ask you to find Israel on the map, which continent would you look through first? Don't worry, many have also looked through Europe too.
Other countries that make up the largest continent on Earth are:
Aside from being the seventh largest country in the world, India is vast with Himalayan peaks to the north, coastlines to the south, and an abundance of Culture, Temples, Wildlife, and Cuisine in between. India is a destination you'll never forget!
Regarded as The Biblical Holy Land, Israel s located in the Middle East on the Mediterranean. Israel's most sacred sites are located in its capital, "Jerusalem".
Although located in a region of unrest, Jordan has proven time and time again of welcoming foreign visitors with arms wide open... For those who have only seen "Lawrence of Arabia", you may now follow in his footsteps through Wadi Rum. You may also experience the crown jewel of Jordan's antiquities, "Petra". You may also want to test the waters of the Dead Sea, which is a salt lake located 400 meters below sea level.
Although the majority of Russia's economy is European, over seventy percent (70%) of its land mass is in Asia... The Ural Mountains are what separate the side of Russia in Europe from the rest of Russia in Asia.
Nestled along the Persian Gulf, lies The United Arab Emirates or UAE... Although The UAE is made up of seven (7) Emirates, the two (2) points of interests most know The UAE for are Dubai and Abu Dhabi, which is the capital of The UAE. In Dubai of course you have the ultra-luxurious Burj Khalifa and other extravagant attractions. In UAE's capital of Abu Dhabi, is known for Yas Island, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, and the observation deck on the Etihad Towers Hotel.
Here's my point, just because someone re-discovered the city of Petra in 1812, doesn't mean you can't go and rediscover it yourself over two hundred years later... That's what the experience of travel provides, the opportunity to rediscover with brand new eyes; those eyes being yours who had yet to lay them on such beauty!
