Part of the joy of multi-country vacations is that you’re not limited by one type of experience or destination. This 21-day Asian vacation is proof of just how complex you can make a single trip. This trip through Asia includes stops in famous East Asian and Southeast Asian cities, river cruises, mountain hikes, a flight up to Mt. Everest, and a stay on a private island in the Maldives to cap it all off.

Start in Japan, where you discover the neon-soaked wonders of Tokyo as well as some of its greatest temples, and not to mention the food. Pass through Osaka, with visits to Hiroshima and Miyajima Island, before you fly onwards to Hong Kong to discover its unbeatable blend of bustling city life, gorgeous nature parks, and world-class food scene. In Vietnam, see the colonial palaces of Ho Chi Minh City and cruise the rice bowl of the Mekong Delta. In neighboring Cambodia, see the emerging capital Phnom Penh and reflect on the past with a somber tour of the Killing Fields. Enjoy sparkling city life in Singapore before connecting into the Himalayas and Nepal, where Buddhist treasures await in Kathmandu and Patan. Scale new heights with a scenic flight to Mt. Everest, gazing upon the highest peak in the world. The vacation isn’t over quite yet. Connect into the Indian Ocean for a few days of rest and relaxation on the powdery white-sand beaches of the Maldives.

There’s something to be said for picking a region and exploring it to its fullest potential. This 25-day journey through southern South America does just that, as it showcases the cosmopolitan atmosphere and natural wonder of Chile and Argentina.

Start the adventure in Santiago, the capital of Chile, where you’ll tour the famous landmarks and visit the nearby resort city of Valparaiso. Fly north to explore the moon-like landscapes of the Atacama Desert before you connect to Rapa Nui/Easter Island via Santiago. On this most easterly island of Polynesia, you’ll ponder the mystery of the moai. Back on the mainland, cross the border into Argentina and explore Patagonia, gazing upon the massive glacier of Perito Moreno. Onwards to Iguassu Falls, the world’s mightiest waterfall system, which shares a breathtaking border with Brazil. Final stop is Buenos Aires, the most European city in South America and one of the world’s great centers for steak, wine, song, and dance.

3. From Seoul & Bangkok to Milford Sound & the Great Barrier Reef

There’s also no reason to stay regional when traveling the world. This 35-day vacation shows how you can combine diverse interests in different parts of the world into a single epic journey, spanning from East and Southeast Asia to the wonders of the South Pacific.

The Asian portion of the trip starts in Korea, where you’ll visit the palaces and shopping centers of the capital Seoul. After a visit to the DMZ to gaze into North Korea, you’ll fly onwards to Thailand for a classic intro to the Southeast Asian country. Relax with wellness treatments at a resort in Phuket, meet with hill tribe villagers and elephants in and around Chiang Mai, and experience the hustle and bustle of Bangkok, one of the world’s most popular cities. Then the real adventure begins as you fly south to Australia to see the famous harbor of Sydney, climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and hike through the nearby Blue Mountains. Fly to Queenstown on New Zealand’s South Island and cruise the gorgeous fjord of Milford Sound. Continue to the Garden City of Christchurch via Aoraki/Mt. Cook and fly to Rotorua on the North Island. Learn about Māori culture, gaze upon bubbling mud pools and towering geysers, and visit nearby Hobbiton from The Lord of the Rings before you reach Auckland, the nation’s largest city. Connect back to Australia to cruise the Great Barrier Reef, gaze upon the red rock monolith of Uluru, and cap off the journey in Melbourne, one of the world’s most attractive and livable cities.

Dreaming of the ultimate honeymoon, but can’t decide on a single destination to visit? Why not add all your dream destinations onto a single 39-day itinerary? That way you can relax on white-sand beaches in the South Pacific, tour great food cities in Southeast Asia, head on safari in Africa, and relax in one of the most attractive cities in Europe.

The journey starts in a destination that’ll provide you with plenty of Instagram fodder: The Islands of Tahiti. Split time between Tahiti and the famous honeymoon island of Bora Bora, where you’ll stay in an overwater bungalow with direct access to the turquoise waters and bountiful sea life. Onwards to Fiji to experience another side of the South Pacific and explore the sea caves and reefs of the Coral Coast. After a Fiji cruise, you’ll fly to Singapore to experience the city for a day. Connect to Thailand for the triple threat of Bangkok, Chiang Mai, and some more beach time in Phuket. Now it’s time to head into the wild. Fly to Nairobi via Doha and enjoy a bustling introduction to Africa before you connect to Amboseli National Park in the shadow of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Spend several days searching for lions and the world’s last remaining big tusker elephants on safari game drives. After some unforgettable wildlife encounters, connect back to Nairobi for another night before you fly to Amsterdam to end your honeymoon amidst bicycles, canals, tulips, and world-class museums.

Globetrotting Editor - You might say that Aren was destined to become a Globetrotter after his family took him to Germany two times before he was four. If that wasn’t enough, a term spent in Sweden as a young teenager and a trek across Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand confirmed that destiny. An independent writer, director, and film critic, Aren has travelled across Asia, Europe, and South America. His favourite travel experience was visiting the major cities of Japan’s largest island, Honshu, but his love for food, drink, and film will take him anywhere that boasts great art and culture.
