If visiting distant monasteries in Bhutan, trekking through deserts in Oman or exploring Argentina’s southern wilderness that is Patagonia is what is going to get you out and about this Chinese New Year, look no further than these suggestions below. Fully tailor-made itineraries are available whether it is for you and your other half or for your entire family.

BRAZIL – With the hype of the impending World Cup upon us, why not explore Brazil before it all kicks off? From the fascinating, carnival-centre that is Rio de Janeiro to the dazzling Iguazu falls, there is so much to see here it could take weeks!

ARGENTINA – From estancias, waterfalls and bustling cities to the breathtaking Patagonian glaciars, Argentina is a fascinating and unique place to explore on a trip which could be combined with a tour of Brazil as well.

OMAN – Head from Muscat, the city filled with maze-like souks and imposing mosques, along the coastal road and into the expansive desert. Spend a night under the stars before heading to a small fishing village on the coast. Oman is rich in culture and you will not be disappointed!

JORDAN – Experience the strange sensation of floating in the Dead Sea before heading to the culture vulture haven that is Petra – Jordan’s crown jewel and fascinating historical site.

INDIA – Discover the sites and smells of India that are unlike anywhere else in the world. Rich in culture be sure to visit Rajasthan, the real heart of the country, and watch the sunset behind the Taj Mahal. 

BURMA – On the brink of becoming a tourists-haven, now is the time to visit this untouched and fascinating country. Availability is always an issue in Burma so we really recommend getting ahead and booking early for this one.
