WHY IT RATES: Travelers can engage in uninterrupted cultural immersion at these exotic destinations while Globus takes care of nuts-and-bolts logistics like accommodations and transportation. -Michael Isenbek, TravelPulse Senior Editor
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 2017, Globus is taking travelers farther into the Far East with tours to China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Japan and India. And, for the first time, Cosmos is offering Asia vacations, introducing great prices on the Great Wall and more with new China, Japan, Vietnam and Thailand tours.
“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,” said Scott Nisbet, president and chief executive officer for the Globus family of brands. “And in 2017, we’re making Asia even more enticing with extremely affordable Cosmos tours.”
Cosmos’ new vacations to Asia include: Eight-day Classic Japan: The Golden Route; nine-day A China Experience; 14-day Simply Vietnam and 13-day Thailand Experience.
“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 new getaways to Tokyo, Bangkok, Singapore and Dubai as well as new regional experiences in South Korea, Japan, Vietnam and Myanmar!
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 has launched a Take Off in 2017 Sale, offering savings of up to $440 (per couple) on 2017 Globus Asia vacations. For details, click here.
