Take the Road Less Traveled; Leave the Familiar Behind


LITTLETON, Colorado – August 16, 2017 – As Americans toy with the idea of trying something new on their next vacation, the Globus family of brands is encouraging travelers to expand their horizons by experiencing something old … The ancient Chinese art of calligraphy, hand-pulled noodle-making or Vietnamese net fishing.  In fact, in 2018, Globus is taking travelers farther into the Far East with NEW tours to China as well as journeys through Vietnam, Cambodia, Japan and India.  Cosmos is also offering Asia vacations, introducing travelers to great prices on the Great Wall and more with China, Vietnam and Thailand tours as well as NEW itineraries in Japan and Sri Lanka.

“Whether watching the sunset over Angkor Wat, sipping hot sake in a Takayama brewery, searching for tigers in India or savoring a cup of tea at the very farm its leaves were harvested, we deliver the experiences of a continent steeped in wonder with calming reassurances that all is taken care of,” Scott Nisbet, president and chief executive officer for the Globus family of brands. “And in 2018, we’re making Asia even more enticing with extremely affordable Cosmos tours.”

Globus’ 2018 vacations are priced from $2,014 (11-day Treasures of China); Cosmos vacations start at $1,349 (13-day Thailand Experience). NEW vacations for 2018 include: Globus’ 12-day Classic China & the Yangtze River and Cosmos’ 10-day Timeless Japan as well as 11-day Grand Tour of Sri Lanka.

“Throughout Asia, we immerse our travelers in the mysteries of an ancient land while demystifying the logistics such as arranging hotels, sightseeing and transportation,” said Nisbet.

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.

For travelers interested in a packaged vacation without the group, Globus’ sister brand, Monograms, is also providing dozens of itineraries for independent travelers, including getaways to Tokyo, Bangkok, Singapore and Dubai as well as regional experiences in South Korea, Japan, and Vietnam.

Avalon Waterways also invites travelers to experience the destinations, cultures and stories found along  Southeast Asia’s, Mekong and Irrawaddy rivers including introducing travelers to a NEW Suite Ship in 2018 – the Avalon Saigon – on two NEW Mekong itineraries: 18-day The Heart of Cambodia & Vietnam and 21-day Ultimate Southeast Asia & the Majestic Mekong.

BOOK EARLY & SAVE: To further entice travelers to experience all these Far East locales have to offer, those booking early can SAVE 5% on Globus Asia and $50 on Cosmos Asia vacations.  For details, click here.
