Well, as far as we at Original Travel are concerned the Far East
(comprising South East Asia, China and Japan) is somewhere particularly special. For the most
part it represents extremely good value for money (OK, maybe not
Japan), is filled to the brim with spectacular land- and
city-scapes, and boasts heritage galore and food to die for.
Finally, there's that great clincher - excellent service.
So, where to start? We're big on Borneo at present
thanks to its combination of abundant wildlife, indigenous tribes,
excellent hotels and great diving. It works perfectly for
honeymooners and families alike, and certainly fits the 'original'
bill. At the far end of the spectrum both mentally and
stylistically, Japan is somewhere to wallow in a culture that feels
completely 'other', and using a tour operator who knows the lie of
the land (like us, for instance) is highly recommended.
