FEATURED DESTINATION

MONGOLIA

Traditional. Vast. Intriguing.

When the 13th-century Venetian merchant and explorer Marco Polo traversed Asia, he passed through the largest empire the world has ever known, the Mongol Empire. Stretching from from Hungary to Korea, Mongolia is heir to this remote, vast and multifaceted domain. Steeped in the past and home to one of Earth’s last remaining horse-based nomadic cultures, Mongolia is a truly great Asia travel destination for both custom luxury Asia travel itineraries or one of our Small Group tours.
