Before you book your flight to Asia be sure to check with your Flight Centre consultant in regards to visas and entry requirements, as they can vary from country to country. For example, British passport holders do not require a visa in order to visit Singapore for one month or Japan for six months, but will need to obtain a visa in order to visit China or Vietnam.
Mount Everest is at the top of the world, Mumbai defies description, the tourist-scorched beaches of Bali are ever-popular and the slamming of East and West in Shanghai produces a buzz unlike any other. Asia truly is an onslaught to the senses.
Beyond the delights of the food and eclectic, cosmopolitan cities, you can find a myriad of ancient wonders and sacred places here. The Great Wall of China, monasteries of Tibet, temples of Angkor and Shinto shrines across Japan offer something more than trinkets and talismans. If you're searching for the mystic, spiritual and encounters of faith, come to Asia. Here the gods roam among the people and life holds many different meanings.
Asia's geographic spread means it also dishes up a land and seascape feast. You can find dense equatorial jungle, volcanic islands, sweeping tundra and vast mountain ranges and desert here. The traditional practices of people inhabiting these diverse ecosystems still flourish, providing a unique opportunity to truly immerse yourself in a new culture.
