Asia Attractions And Landmarks Guide

By far the world’s largest continent, Asia is as diverse as it is large. China, Siberia, Nepal and Jordan are all parts of Asia, as are Sri Lanka, Iran, Mongolia and Dubai. So a trip to Asia can encompass many regions, cultures, religions – and decisions. Given its size and breadth, taking a guided tour can be an efficient way to experience a taste of Asia. Stride can help sort it all out for you – from Indonesia to India to Israel, Asia is varied, intriguing, and endlessly fascinating.

Asia – whose land mass of more than 17 million square miles is more than four times that of Europe – incorporates so many different nations and cultures that it can be hard to grasp its depth and breadth. Asia is also changing rapidly: industrializing, digitizing, globalizing, and modernizing to sometimes the nth degree while still retaining, in many places, its pastoral and exotic charms. Still, it’s good to go sooner than later to see aspects of the old Asia along with the new.

Do you start with fast-developing China, the world’s most populous nation, where million-plus cities seem to spring up overnight? From world icons like the Great Wall and Beijing’s Forbidden City to ultra-hip Shanghai and teeming Hong Kong (a special administrative region), it tops many travelers’ wish lists. Or do you opt for the temples, pulsating cities and culinary delights of Japan and Korea?

Southeast Asia Calling

Perhaps a Southeast Asia sojourn is at hand. Thailand, Myanmar (Burma), Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore are home to architectural treasures ranging from Bangkok’s Royal Palace to the grand ruins of Cambodia’s Temple Angkor Wat and Indonesia’s ninth-century temple Borobudur. Southeast Asia’s beaches, cuisines and surviving rural cultures and landscapes are all traveler favorites, while river cruising on the Mekong and Irrawaddy are hot tickets.

India, Bhutan, Nepal and Sri Lanka form another fascinating region. While India can be chaotic (a perfect destination for a guided tour), an early-morning boat ride on the Ganges in the Hindu holy city of Varanasi or a visit to Agra’s Taj Mahal are never-to-be-forgotten experiences. Nepal is the ultimate high for Himalayan trekkers, while Bhutan serves up bliss amid the mountain peaks. Sri Lanka is emerging from years of civil strife to display its lush, peaceful side.

The Ancient Silk Route

Much of Russia – from the Ural Mountains to eastern Siberia – lies in Asia, as does Mongolia, land of yurts and horsemen. Central Asia is a vast expanse of “stans”: Uzbekistan’s Samarkand, Bukhara and Tashkent were pillars along the old nomadic Silk Route from China. The ancient Babylonian and Persian empires live on in modern-day Iraq and Iran – an option for adventurous travelers. Parts of the Middle East are also troubled, though the United Arab Emirates – with its star attraction, Dubai -- and some other areas of the exotic Arabian Peninsula still beckon (even Saudi Arabia is starting to open up to non-Islamic tourism).

Israel and Jordan are at peace, offering the opportunity to visit both ancient Jerusalem and nearby Petra, Jordan’s wondrous rock city. Much of Turkey lies in Asia as well – including the unique cave dwellings of Cappadocia and the beaches of the Turkish Riviera.

While a quick overview can barely scratch the surface of Asian travel, Stride can ease the confusion with our easy-to-use comparison tools. After sizing up our plentiful offerings of guided tours, river cruises and active vacation packages, you can then decide which Asian region is the best fit for you. And chances are you’ll want to return again and again to sample more of all the cultural and adventurous discoveries that Asia has in store.

Thank you for the great trip February 2018


Best Of India & Srilanka

We had a great trip to India and Sri Lanka. Transfers at the airports were excellent and the guides in both the countries were knowledgeable and friendly. I am beyond happy , When I read all the reviews I was so scared to even go on the tour. My gosh , It was one of the best trips of my life . Our tour leader was such an amazing guy, very well educated, spoke perfect English and was so funny . We had a driver as well that picked us up from the airport, took us to 4 different cities and dropped us off at the hotel, he was such a hard working and a professional man. He drove at times 6 hours from one city to another and he never complained, he would open and close the door for us. AMAZING Our tour leader took us shopping to an expensive place and a cheaper place and he gave us the option as to what we want to buy with whichever quality.He was so knowledgeable and extremely funny. He was an amazing person. I am beyond thankful for this trip. I would definitely recommend them . I enjoyed every minute of it . The hotels were beyond my expectation. They were brand new, clean and the staff were so professional and friendly. I will book 100% again with them for further trips. Booking was easy. Agents at Indus are extremely professional and helpful. I am beyond happy with the experience. We visited The Qutab Minar, Taj Mahal, The amber fort and may more places. Our tour leader told us about the city, people and the scam artists. I am once again so thankful. Thank you Indus" Read more

Brilliant story and guide February 2018


Best Of India & Srilanka

I booked this tour online with Indus Travels. The guide was fantastic. Not only insightful but gave me and my husband time to roam around ourselves as well throughout the trip. He was able to give us a great insight into the story behind all the sights we been to in India. The food afterwards was great as well. I Agra we covered Qutab Minar, Jama Masjid , Chandni Chowk, Taj Mahal and it was life time experience, so much history behind this. Sri Lanka was an exceptional destination; and the tour was extremely interesting, and well done. The hotels were generally excellent, the people friendly, the food interesting, and the tour good value. In fact, we have been enthusiastically recommending your services to our friends, so hope the word of mouth works for you. Read more

Overall was good and we were happy with the holidays spent in India . January 2018


Safehands Travels Reviews

Me my wife and our daughter had no problems all over the tour as Mr Rohit has planned exaclty the way we wanted it to be. Besides then a small room problem in Shimla ca use the room was small and there don't have running hot water as other hotels cause we had a child and we were first time feeling the chills of winter but it's was settled by Rohit as he promised us. Regarding the firts driver I think he is not fit to be a tour driver, beginning was okay but towards then end he was slacking but that to was settled by Rohit, by giving us a new driver.but overall we was happy and enjoyed the cold weather which we wanted to experience once in a life time as we are from Malaysia. We will come back to India and will get Rohit from Safe Hands to do the arrangements again. Will recommend to all who wish to travel to India SAFE HANDS TRAVELS. Thank you Rohit SAFE HANDS TRAVELS. All the best you. Read more

One of the best hiking experience in the Himalayas December 2017


Everest Base Camp Trek

We did customized 13 days Everest base camp trek with Glorious Himalaya Trekking team and it was really an awesome trip in our life. We were 4 friends from Australia and booked our Nepal trip through online with Glorious Himalaya, we found them very professional and reliable as well.

During our 13 days trip, the weather was excellent with crystal clear mountains views from Kalapather view point. We had hot meals with warm accommodation during our trek. Our guide Ram was very helpful, reliable and knowledgeable. And the porter were enough strong to carry the loads on our entire trip.

Eventually, we don't hesitate to recommend Glorious Himalaya Trekking team for your remarkable holidays in Nepal. They are very professional and quick on response.

Cheers and see you guys next year again in October.
