Explore the world’s most exotic destinations in 2014

Christmas is right around the corner, which means 2014 is almost over! There's still time yet to explore some of the world's best exotic destinations before the year is out; our guide to the top destinations to check out will inspire you to jet off to distant shores, and soak up some sunshine this winter.

Japan

Japan is a country of rich contrasts; culture and tradition sits side by side with some of the most futuristic cities on earth. Take in the buzzing metropolis of Tokyo with its bright lights and technology, or enjoy the more traditional side of Japan in Kyoto. With beautiful lakes, temples and mountains, a trip to Japan is sure to leave you feeling relaxed. Visit Zen Buddhist temples where you can watch monks meditating, cruise on Lake Ashi-no for stunning views of Mount Fuji or book a stay in a traditional 'Ryokan' (Japanese inn) to experience a taste of local culture.

Thailand

Thailand has something to offer everyone, with some of the world's most beautiful beaches, deserted islands and lush, tropical greenery. It's exotic yet thanks to the tourist trade you'll find every modern amenity you could ever need. Thailand is also an affordable place to travel, but get off the beaten track a little whenever you can. Take a ride on the River Kwai Railway, explore Bangkok's famous floating markets where you can buy everything from silks to spice, or visit the country's small towns and traditional villages where you can meet the friendly locals. Take in the stunning countryside at Khao Kaem Lake, where hill tribes still live in tiny villages practically untouched by the modern world. Bustling Bangkok is not to be missed – here you'll see sights such as the Grand Palace and enjoy the opportunity to sample street food at the night markets.

China

China tours are one of the best ways to see this fascinating and diverse country for yourself. Book a tailor-made tour or enjoy a group tour for the opportunity to discover China's Great Wall and The Forbidden City, spot the Terracotta Warrior or head for Sichuan province's mountains to see rare Giant Pandas in their natural habitat. China has plenty to offer young and old alike, whether you're looking for stunning scenery and relaxing temples, great shopping and nightlife or simply a taste of local culture and tradition. No visit here is complete without sampling local cuisine – it doesn't taste the way Chinese food does back home and it's quite an experience!
