Modern and Traditional Japan
TOKYO and KYOTO

August 23 Wed ARRIVAL - August 29 Mon DEPARTURE

Image by Clay Banks

You’ll find Michelin star restaurants next to vending machines selling tasty meals.

 

You’ll find long-standing traditions like tea ceremonies and sumo wrestling just blocks away from eccentrically costumed teenagers that live and breathe Japanese pop culture.

 

These beautiful contradictions are what make Tokyo such a unique and interesting place that appeals to travelers of all ages, budgets and interests.

Bangkok is one of the most visited tourist cities in the world (second to Paris at one point) and is known for its cultural diversity, exciting culinary offerings, and vibrant nightlife to mention some. 

From AFAR magazine:  I walked with Sanon down a tiny alleyway greeted by a chorus of hammers on metal. Everyone on this street is involved in the eight phases of the ancient craft of metal monk-bowl making: One person frames the bowls, another welds them, a third hammers them into shape... “Before, every single house in this area was making monks’ bowls,” he said. “Everyone lived out in the street, worked out in the street. Now you don’t hear the same sounds. Things are changing here. ”Who knows if the bowl makers, the monk robe manufacturers, and the other artisans who make this neighborhood so appealing will still be around the next time I return to Bangkok.

We will visit temples and palaces so you may dress appropriately.
