Oriental's Ethos as a Specialist Tour Operator
"A heady mix of culture & history"
Many travel companies offer 'cultural' tours that take people from one historical site to another, implying that culture is all about history. On the contrary! At Oriental Travel we believe that the local culture is the living, breathing essence embodied in its multi ethnic peoples, diverse places, aesthetic art and distinctive cuisines.
"The Oriental Travel Experience"
To really understand the magic of the Far East you have to use all of your senses. It's not just about the beauty you see, but also the objects you touch, the sounds you hear and the fragrance you smell! This is the concept we to bring to all our tours. To show you China, Vietnam & Cambodia in a way that is vibrant, enlightening and above all at an enjoyable leisurely pace!
Instead of doing the norm we try do thing differently! For example instead of visiting the most touristy and crowded areas we will endeavour to take you to more authentic locations and add a little something extra such as at the Mutianyu Section of the Great Wall which offers a more authentic, less crowded and more picturesque experience than at Badaling, and where you will enjoy a glass of bubbly or refreshing Bux Fiz and a lovely picnic lunch ....Now that Oriental's Style!
"Food Glorious Food"
The wonderful array smells & flavour from China's diverse cuisine is mouth-watering so wee handpicked a varied selection of restaurants with that special ambiance to enhance your experience. From one of Beijing's more intimate Courtyard Restaurants to one of the very top restaurants in Shanghai we hope you will enjoy the occasion...
Wherever possible we like to introduce to you the wonderful world of local Performance Art. So at all our major destinations we have arranged a wonderful selection of included and optional shows, many world renowned, to captivate you with their talent, elegance and grace.
