Luxury Insider’s Tours in Asia
What do we mean by “fine touring”?
Fine touring certainly includes travel itineraries with the finest accommodations and dining experiences available in each city. Our hotels are centrally located so individual exploration of historic districts is easy and rewarding, and our restaurants are chosen with a view to exciting culinary discovery.
For us at China Advocates, fine touring means more than the usual luxury tour.
In our view, travel must reveal the spirit of the country, both past and present. Daily touring delves into the heart of the country from touchdown at the airport to the last goodbye. This means that everyone involved in tour design and operations must be conversant with the great renaissance that is occurring in Asia today.
It is not enough to make ground arrangements. Our goal is to create an experience that reveals the wondrous excitement of China’s reemergence in the modern world as well as the recovery of her great artistic and spiritual traditions. Japan’s unique modernity and the world banking center of Hong Kong offer amazing contrasts to explore and understand.
The hallmark of the China Advocates experience is the dovetailing of daily touring with the insightful exchanges with each country’s artists, spiritual masters, or scholars, as well as naturalists, entrepreneurs, and government officials.
We seek to share our understanding of this special part of the world and what each individual culture is and to infuse our expertise into a multifaceted tour experience. And while tour design depends on the interests of the groups seeking our expertise, a common element for all successful Asian travel is the aspiration to enter the rich world of the Far East.
For us, fine touring in Asia means a life-enhancing experience. These great ancient civilizations of the world are still poorly understood. We aim to provide insights into their living traditions, such as may awaken awe and amazement in the inquisitive American traveler.
