LITTLETON, Colorado – August 19, 2015 – Inside the temples and pagodas, up to the mystic mountaintops and down to the floating villages below, Globus takes travelers farther into the Far East with tours to China, Vietnam and Cambodia as well as NEW 2016 tours to Japan and India.

Globus’ NEW Classic Japan: The Golden Route is an on-the-go, 8-day getaway. From bustling cities to quiet mountain villages, on this tour travelers will experience the distinct flavor of Japan. They will also discover Japan’s culture while partaking in a tea ceremony, attempting calligraphy and participating in a Japanese cooking class.  More fun is to be had while taking a cable car ride to Mount Fuji, a cruise on Lake Ashki and high-speed bullet train to Kyoto.

Another NEW vacation for 2016 is Icons of India: The Taj, Tigers & Beyond. From taking a rickshaw ride through Chandni Chowk – a captivating local bazaar – and a horse-drawn carriage (Tongas) at Taj Mahal to enjoying a train ride to Ranthambore National Park where travelers will partake in game drives in search of Bengal tigers, leopards, sambar deers and more, this 10-day vacation is packed full of fun and adventure.

“Whether watching the sunset over Angkor Wat, sipping hot sake in a Takayama brewery, visiting the kiln of Bazinvaki pottery or having tea in a local’s home along the Mekong River, our Local Favorites program delivers the warmth of a continent steeped in beauty, tradition and wonder,” said Scott Nisbet, president and chief executive officer for the Globus family of brands. “In 2016, we’re providing our travelers unique inclusions that add to already enlightening tours. Experiences they couldn’t find or book on their own.”

Making the touring experience even more special for travelers, most of Globus’ Asia vacations are part of the company’s Small Group Discovery (SG) series: A program that allows for no more than 20 travelers on a tour, giving them a smaller group ratio and the chance for more personalized service and authentic experiences.

And, for those travelers interested in a packaged vacation without the group, Globus’ sister brand, Monograms, is providing independent travelers more than 40 itinerary variations to help them explore and experience the best of Japan, China, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Singapore, Laos, Dubai and India.

Avalon Waterways also invites travelers to experience the destinations, cultures and stories found along Asia’s Yangtze, Mekong and Irrawaddy rivers aboard two 36-passenger Suite Ships® – the Avalon Myanmar℠ and Avalon Siem Reap℠.

BOOK EARLY & SAVE: To further entice travelers to experience all these Far East locales have to offer, Globus is offering them savings of up to $390 (per couple) on 2016 Globus Asia vacations. For details, click here.
