Let’s not beat around the bush here – you’re way too adventurous and cool to be signing up for a singalong on a seniors’ tour bus.

1. China

China tips for first timers

From the biggest, most magnificent sights on everybody’s bucket list – the Great Wall and Terracotta Warriors to name a few-to languid pandas, vibrant mega-metropolises, serene landscapes and undiscovered corners, China is as diverse, complex and rich as a whole continent. Every province brings a new set of flavours to its cuisine and a new range of beliefs, philosophies and languages to its people – and all of it is ripe for exploration. The hardest bit is just deciding where to go first.

2. Cambodia

Cambodia has long been associated with the brutal Khmer Rouge, but today the country has risen above its blood-tinted history to take its place as one of South East Asia’s most up and coming places to visit. There is a truly eclectic mix of travel experiences from ancient monuments and exotic beaches to remote ethnic minority villages and city life, Cambodia always delivers an exhausting level of excitement.

3. India

India’s landscape is as varied as its people and ranges from tropical beach paradises to primary forests of teak: to desert tundra’s broken by forts ruled by princes: and to chilly foothills clad in tea plantations opening onto vistas of the world’s highest mountain peaks. The experiences you may encounter will be just as diverse, from being slowed down by herds of water buffalo crossing the road; hearing the perpetual blowing of car horns 24/7; avoiding monkeys as they try to steal food from your rucksack; playing cricket with the locals in the heat of the day; to counting how many people are hanging on the outside of your train as it leaves the station!

4. Japan

Wendy Wu's Asia tours to Japan

Japan has so much to offer from taking in Mount Fuji to exploring the coral reefs of Okinawa, walking the streets of Kyoto to taking a bullet train, exploring Buddhist temples to visiting Hiroshima, and taking in a Geisha Dance to joining in the Karaoke, you really will be amazed by this fascinating country.
And you never have to travel far in Japan to get out into nature: in major hubs like Kyoto, just a short trip from the city will get you into forested mountains. Come in spring and see the famous cherry blossoms that scent the city with their delicate fragrance, or visit when the leaves begin to fall for spectacular autumn.

5. Laos

Wendy Wu tours to Asia and Laos

Laos has so far survived the redevelopment, which has overpowered its neighbours in recent years. Traditional simple wooden village homes, colonial-era shop houses, and mouldering monasteries all remain and traditional customs are also firmly intact including monks collecting alms at daybreak and traditional looms weaving richly coloured silk can be heard in most villages.
Other fascinating places to visit include Wat Phou, and the Plain of Jars continues to fascinate visitors with its stone urns and catastrophic war history.

6. Myanmar

Asia tours to Myanmar

Not-so-long ago off-limits to tourists, Myanmar remains a rustic place to visit and it is relatively undeveloped. Life continues to move at a snail’s pace and modernisation has been equally slow, but change is coming and each day sees more new cars on the streets, but they still share the roads with horse carts, trishaws, bicycles, and motorbikes. Of course, all of this is part of Myanmar’s charm. Equally alluring are its gleaming pagodas, historic temple complexes that rival Cambodia’s great Angkor complex, and lush landscapes distinguished by forested mountains, tranquil lakes, picturesque rivers, and impressive caves.

7. Sri Lanka

Asia tours to Sri Lanka with Wendy Wu

Undiscovered Sri Lanka’s wonderful landscape is invitingly lined with pure white sand. Diving, snorkelling, or just soaking up the seemingly endless warmth and sun are reward in themselves. White dagobas curving sky-ward create a starting skyline, serene carved stone Buddha’s lying in permanent silence and elephants in parades glittering in gold.

8. Vietnam

Asia tours to Vietnam with Wendy Wu

Everywhere you turn in Vietnam you will encounter memorable experiences, from the stunning limestone islands from the deck of a Chinese junk in Halong Bay to crawling through the Cu Chi tunnels: taking 10 minutes to cross the street in Hanoi to watching a moped over loaded with chickens wobbling along uneven country roads: tasting the changing flavours of Vietnamese cooking to sampling more western cuisine – with a Vietnamese twist. Whether you are a culture vulture, thrill-seeker or just looking to relax and take in the beaches, Vietnam won’t disappoint.
