Authentic Journeys in Asia Created for Discerning Travelers
At Asia Highlights, we create your kind of journey — your dates, your destinations, at your pace. Not just any journey, but the unique trip with the exceptional experiences you're looking for — whether it's a family vacation, a honeymoon, or your annual break — your planning will be made easy with just one specialist throughout.
Unique, life-changing experiences
We believe you deserve a unique experience off the beaten track, with country highlights, hand-picked comfortable accommodation, and expert local guides. We focus on historical and cultural Asian destinations, exploring interesting ways to travel for families, couples, and annual vacations. Every hotel is carefully selected out of over 100 similar hotels. Each local guide serving you is well-trained and will help you immerse into a world you are waiting to discover.
Discovery your way — with maximum flexibility
A travel experience that perfectly suits you can only be achieved with a tailor-made journey, connecting your travel style with the new world you are going to explore. Maximum flexibility will be guaranteed throughout your trip, from the moment you contact us to the minute you are back home from your trip.
Your specialist will adjust your itinerary according to your interests and timetable until you are completely happy. Your local guide will escort you and help you maximize your enjoyment and experience, while keeping to your pace. Last minute changes are possible even during the trip. Plans made easy with one provider
One specialist will tailor-make your whole Asia-wide trip and take care of the troublesome logistics for you — from international flights, visas, and accommodation to your daily program, with 24/7 support throughout the trip.
We have been providing tailor-made travel services for English-speaking customers since 1998. We have put years of research into our itineraries, local contacts, accommodation, and training of local guides so that you can enjoy a hassle-free journey, focusing on its unique experiences. Why go to all the trouble of planning when you could leave it to a local expert speaking your language?
How It Works
1. Make an inquiry, stating your ideal trip ideas.
Whenever you make an inquiry with your ideal trip ideas, you will be put in contact with a specialist who has been exploring the area deeply; some have even traveled with their own customers and so have first-hand, in-situ feedback. We have strong connections to our destinations thanks to being based in Southern China, next to Southeast Asia.
2. Plan and refine.
Your specialist will first talk with you on the phone or exchange emails to better understand your interests and specific requests. They will then craft a unique itinerary proposal, which can be refined until you are satisfied and ready to book.
3. Book with a guarantee.
Book with your specialist once you are satisfied and pay the deposit. Your specialist will confirm all the services and logistics right after the booking. Any change is still possible even after you have booked. A week before your travel, your specialist will offer a detailed trip reminder for your coming trip.
4. Enjoy your trip and stay in touch.
You are in the safe hands of our expert local guides as soon as you step off the plane. Your specialist will continue to support you 24/7 throughout your trip. You can also speak to our customer care staff over the phone on a specific number at any time.
Creating Beautiful Journeys since 1998
It was in 1998 that Victor Shu started China Highlights as a way to help Westerner individuals discover the real China. As a tour guide for 4 years, he had been fed up with guiding foreign travelers in large groups, merely scratching the surface of China on inflexible tourist trap tours. He initiated a new way of travel in China: private tours, created to match your own interests and budget.
Today, as Asia Highlights, our desire to help people gain unique experiences continues to increase and extend into other Asian countries with the same excellent service.
