Nature's finest

Holidays by Rail Discoveries, breathtaking moments by nature. The world we live in is remarkable and beautiful, and going on holiday to experience nature at its best is a fantastic way to appreciate unfamiliar natural wonders.

Cherry Blossom

With the arrival of spring comes cherry blossoms, framing some of Japan's most famous streets with pale pink canopies. The beautiful, albeit frail, Sakura flowers are an important part of Japanese culture, signifying that life is transient yet beautiful. These iconic blooms also play a role in Japanese art and poems. Cherry blossoms appear in different regions at different times of the year, but are most likely to be seen in late March or early April. Immerse yourself in their fragile beauty when you embark on an 'Adventure through Japan'.

Pandas

Meet these curious creatures at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding as you 'Discover China', where more than 120 adorable giant panda cubs have been born over the years. The giant panda is native to southern central China and is known to be extremely lazy, spending most of its days either eating or sleeping. They are folivores whose main diet consists of bamboo leaves and shoots, and they can eat up to 30kg in just one day. Despite their friendly appearance, pandas are known to be largely solitary animals.
