Popularised during the days of the British Empire, the “Far East” describes not only geographical region but a cultural perception – the Mysterious Orient. It’s also Lightfoot’s specialist region, and we take pride in being the leading trendsetters of luxury Asia travel.

We provide only the most exclusive properties, from private villas to hidden spa retreats. We create innovative itineraries like elephant polo in Thailand and remote trekking in Myanmar, or classic trips like Japan in cherry blossom bloom, beach nirvana in Bali, and exploring Angkor Wat’s ancient ruins.

Enquire with Keira, our Head of Asia and dedicated Far East specialist, for more about tailor-made luxury tours!
