The Orient

Mysterious and exotic, the countries of the Far East are fascinating and alluring, full of lively temples, ancient trade routes, epic landscapes and tantalising culinary traditions.

A journey into Asia with Abercrombie & Kent reveals the continent’s fascinating kaleidoscope of cultures, its ancient history and modern-day attractions on your terms.

From the sweeping Central Asian steppe — Turkemenistan and Uzbekistan — to the epic landscapes of Mongolia; ancient and modern juxtaposed in Japan; the myriad islands of Indonesia; China and its many civilisations; the legendary temples of Cambodia; the aromatic cuisine of Thailand and more. This is a region so diverse - each country with its own particular identity, culture and history - that you will want to visit again and again.

There are grand river trips, great rail journeys, jungle adventures, coastal hideaways, marine discoveries and hot air balloon explorations. There is rich culinary diversity and handicraft traditions. Epic landscapes and cosmopolitan cities. Whether you choose a small group journey or a tailor-made adventure, A&K’s more than 30 years of experience is guaranteed to deliver its trademark blend of sophistication, privileged access and captivating insights no matter which countries you choose to visit, and when.

Commitment to local communities

Conservation and philanthropy have been integral parts of A&K’s operations for decades, long before they became de rigueur for other operators. Working hand-in-hand with local communities, we fund schools, clean water projects and initiatives to generate employment opportunities that benefit their community. As a guest of A&K you are invited to visit grassroots Abercrombie & Kent Philanthropy projects during your Orient journey.
