New Japan and Borneo Options from Wendy Wu

Wendy Wu Tours, global leader in Asia travel, has launched its new Japan brochure for 2018/2019.

In conjunction with the launch, Wendy Wu have partnered with Air China to offer an exclusive business class upgrade from just £99pp (one way) on departures between April and June 2018, which includes Japan's ever popular cherry blossom season, booked before August 31, 2017.

Commenting on the launch, Yaow Butwisate-Lok, product manager for Japan, Wendy Wu said: “Since launching our first dedicated Japan brochure in 2016, we’ve seen bookings soar by over 215 per cent with many of next year’s departure dates, in the key seasons of spring cherry blossom and autumn colours, already selling fast. With the imminent Rugby World Cup in 2019 and 2020 Summer Olympics, prices in Japan are likely to soar making 2018 the perfect time and most cost-effective time to visit.

"We’ve expanded our range of tours, offering new additions to suit all types of travellers to Japan, whether it’s those who prefer to travel at a more sedate pace, family groups or die-hard adventurers. One of the brochure highlights is for those wishing to visit Japan and see everything in a week. Wendy Wu's new eight-day 'Week in Japan' is the answer.

The company's first all-inclusive week to Japan includes all the ‘must-see’ highlights of this fascinating and futuristic country, all in a convenient week-long tour. Starting in the ultimate 24-hour city that is Tokyo and ending in Osaka, along the way you’ll enjoy breathtaking views from Mount Fuji and experience the exhilarating Hikari bullet train to Kyoto, a city that epitomises ancient Japan with its tranquil temples and silk-clad geishas. In Nara, Japan’s former imperial capital, you’ll see Todaiji Temple, the world’s largest wooden structure and home to Japan’s largest Buddha.

Travellers can extend their holiday with one of Wendy Wu’s many extensions and stopovers. A new nine-day ‘China Experience’ (from £1,790pp) and new five-day ‘Classic South Korea’ (from £1,890pp) are the perfect accompaniment to Japan. With your own private guide and transportation, an extension will transform your holiday into the ultimate Asia experience.

Meanwhile, Wendy Wu is going wild in Borneo with the introduction of a new 16-day ‘Best of Borneo’ holiday, from £3,790pp. The new tour comes at the response of a progressive shift in travel and increasing trend in customers looking beyond the traditional escorted tour for more experiential travel. Until now, Borneo has largely been viewed as a destination for very adventurous travellers however Wu’s new tour perfectly bridges the gap between those looking for a classic tour, at a gentler pace, with those wanting a more cultural experience.

Best of Borneo encapsulates everything that has made Borneo, Asia’s largest island, the diverse region that it is today. Stretching from Kuching to Kota Kinabalu and known for its ancient and biodiverse rainforest, extraordinary wildlife, and breathtaking coastline, highlights abound for travellers on this holiday. Just some of the ‘must dos’ include a visit to Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre, the international centre for the rehabilitation of rescued and orphaned young orangutans; visiting a tribal longhouse with Borneo’s Iban community and insight into their tribal traditions plus a rainforest hike at the foot of Mount Kinabalu, Borneo’s highest mountain and Malaysia’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site.
