India & Japan 2015 Trip

Unfortunately I had to cancel my Africa and South East Asia tours for late 2014 into 2015 due to work commitments and the need to keep my job 😦

But as one door closes another opens up and that is a shorter trip outside Australia in April to visit two places high on my wish list India and Japan. Once again I’ll be using G Adventures who I’ve travelled with on every continent but Africa (was going to close that gap this year).

Highlights of India Tour
The promotion of the trip states:

Spend a night in a heritage village home, delve into ancient history and thriving modern culture, explore grand forts and palaces in Rajasthan, marvel at the Taj Mahal at sunrise, learn the true meaning of relaxation aboard a houseboat on Kerala’s backwaters, discover a newfound obsession with South Indian cuisine

I’ve be visiting the cities of Delhi, Agra (The Taj Mahal), Jaipur, Sawarda, Kochi, Kumarakom, Alleppey, and Marari

Next stop Japan

Japan Express Tour

The promotion of the trip states:

Take in the views of Mt Fuji, stay in temple lodging and a traditional ryokan, gaze at the famous floating gate Miyajima Torii, explore Kyoto’s Nijo Castle

During the tour I’ll be visiting the cities of Osaka, Koya-san, Hiroshima, Kyoto, Hakone (Mt Fuji), and Tokyo

I actually have 4 days before this tour starts in order to get from Tokyo to get to Osaka. I’ll probably catch one of those bullet trains but I still have to work out what I want to do for at least 3 days. I’ve heard so much about Japan from friends over the years I’m looking forward to exploring.

I’ll be flying QANTAS, Cathay Pacific , and Sri Lankan Airlines (new airline for me).
