View Itineraries
The Far East has always conjured an image of mystical and exotic faraway lands, shrouded in mystery and allure. Embark on a memorable journey of enlightenment and discover the different cultures, geological wonders and innovative spirit of the people of China and Japan.

China

With a history that dates back more than 5,000 years, China is a fascinating blend of the modern and the ancient, boasting both man-made wonders and dramatic natural landscapes. From the Great Wall to the Forbidden City; the Nine Villages Valley to Lhasa, this is a land where cultures, timelines and possibilities converge in one wonderful panorama.




Japan

Comprising over 3,000 islands steeped in history, Japan is at the same time a glittering industrial powerhouse. Immerse yourself in its many contrasts, from the bright lights of its cities to serene rural sanctuaries. Here, time is still allocated to ancient disciplines and time-honoured rituals, even in the familiar rush of daily modern life.

A true gem, China is a multi-faceted place with many glittering aspects. Whether you’d like to explore its many-layered history, its rich artistry, its unique collage of cultures, or its wealth of natural wonder, you’ll soon find yourself charmed and under its ancient spell.

Extraordinary Experiences in Japan

From its ancient Samurai culture to present-day Japanese anime, the ‘land of the rising sun’ has always had its own unmistakable identity. You’ll find that same element of uniqueness in everything you come across in this proud and distinctive country, whether it’s glittering skyscrapers or ancient temples, snow-capped peaks or state-of-the-art entertainment complexes.

Travel tailored to you

When you travel with Scenic you can be confident that we’ll go further to ensure that every aspect of your journey has been carefully considered. It’s about going a degree beyond to ensure that your trip is a truly carefree experience.
A personal touch
Travel in a small group of no more than 24 guests, so you’ll enjoy a more intimate travel experience. Our Tour Directors will remain with you throughout, even while cruising on the Yangtze River. They’re available every day, providing a more attentive service and are on hand for answering questions. In China and Japan you’ll enjoy the use of our audio headsets, with a personal audio control so you can always hear our expert commentary.


Travel in style
Whether you’re travelling by road, ship or rail, you can look forward to first class or luxury standard transport with comfort and enjoyment in mind. Likewise, no effort has been spared to provide you with the best possible touring and convenient transport options – including some local varieties for an authentic experience.

Local knowledge
When it comes to guides and Tour Directors, we use experienced English speaking local experts. After all, nobody knows a location as well as someone who actually lives there. Not only can you expect to be taken to the must-see highlights at the right time, you’ll be treated to the delightful back streets, and those little-known gems that no one else is aware of such as your Izakaya Bar dining experience in Tokyo. 

Convenience Plus
Our handcrafted itineraries are designed to ensure you are not wasting any valuable holiday time. We use especially arranged private buses in national parks, when possible, to avoid queues, VIP graded seats to all of our included evening shows, and VIP passes to attractions such as the Bailong Elevator in Zhangjiajie. 

Exclusive Access
Our Scenic Enrich experiences offer exclusive access and activities normally off limits to other tourists. When viewing national treasures such as ancient artefacts at Quijiang Museum of Fine Arts in Xi’an, we ensure you do so away from the crowds by arranging private viewings. You’ll also enjoy private and exclusive shows, performances and demonstrations of various activities throughout all journeys. 

Included Value
As always you can look forward to enjoying Scenic’s trademark brand of luxury. Hidden costs are taken care of, and that includes all tipping and gratuities.
