Highlights of the trip

Days 1 to 3

Samarkand - At the Crossroads of the Silk Road

Departing from Old Europe, we will start our Asian Odyssey in Uzbekistan in the heart of Central Asia, a country criss-crossed by caravan trails, a real link between Europe and the Far East. Proud of its cultural, religious and architectural riches, Samarkand, one of the oldest cities in the world, will reveal itself through the facets of its blue mosaic buildings built under Tamerlane.

Days 3 to 5

Xi'An - The Immortal Army of the Qin Emperor

Then came the Middle Kingdom and Xi'an, China's first capital. Founded by Qin Shi Huang Di, who built the social and political pillars of the Empire, this city has retained its old-fashioned charm and traditions as a great caravanserai at the start of the famous Silk Road. We will visit the tomb of the first founding emperor of the Qin Dynasty, surrounded by thousands of clay statues.

Days 5 to 8

Kyoto - Capital of Tranquility

We will continue our trip to Kyoto, Japan. With over 2,000 temples, shrines, palaces, bridges and gardens, Kyoto is considered the cultural capital of the country. From the Golden Pavilion to the historic streets of Gion and its geisha houses, you will be immersed in its ancient atmosphere.

Days 8 to 10

Macau - "Las Vegas" of the Orient

Landing in Macau, known as the "Las Vegas of Asia" with its many casinos and luxury hotels. A stroll to the remains of St. Paul's Church, in the very heart of the old city, will give you another view of this former Portuguese colony, which became Chinese again in 1999.

Day 10

Luang Prabang - The Pearl of the Mekong

A short flight to Laos will take us to Luang Prabang, the historical and religious capital of the ancient Kingdom of the Million Elephants. A major Buddhist centre, 2,000 monks maintain the temples scattered along the Mekong.

Days 10 to 13

Siem Reap - The Enigmatic Angkor

We then arrive at Angkor, the pride of Cambodia and probably the largest archaeological site in the world. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it bears witness to four centuries of Khmer sovereignty over an area of more than 400 km². A sumptuous dinner, worthy of the kings who ruled Angkor, will be served in the ruins of a thousand-year-old temple while admiring the Royal Ballet of Cambodia and its sacred Apsaras.

Days 13 to 15

Jaipur - The Pink City

We will leave the slow charms of Cambodia to dive into the effervescence of India. Jaipur, the Pink City, the centre of Rajasthan, will reveal its sumptuous palaces, legendary residences and memories of the maharajas.

Days 15 to 17

Muscat - Desert Ochre

The last leg of your journey will take you to Muscat, the capital of the Sultanate of Oman, a true city of the Arabian Nights where Bedouin traditions of hospitality leave indelible marks on the hearts and minds of visitors.

Our prices are based on the economic conditions prevailing in 2022, including accommodation, transport, fuel, taxes and the exchange rate of the US dollar and the currencies of the countries concerned.
Airlines, aircraft types and airports are subject to change without notice and are given as an indication only. Likewise, some scheduled stopovers may be replaced, cancelled or reversed due to security criteria or external parameters beyond the organiser's control and impossible to anticipate when the trips are published on our 2022 commercial media.

The trip may be cancelled if the group does not reach the minimum number of participants required for the type of aircraft.

In the event of cancellation due to force majeure, the client may not claim any compensation. Force majeure is characterised by the unpredictability, irresistibility and exteriority of the event that prevented the execution of the contract (C. civ. art. 1148).
In the event of voluntary interruption of the trip by the client, the latter shall not be entitled to any reimbursement, even partial, of either transport services or other services, the only exception being total or partial coverage by an insurance company depending on the contract taken out and within the limits of the latter only.
