Arts & Music

When it comes to the arts, Asia’s eclecticism means there is something for everyone. The region is home to some of the most exciting developing contemporary art scenes (Hong Kong, China), indigenous art traditions still very much alive (Cambodia, Indonesia) and world-class modern museums (Japan, South Korea). In many countries, Remote Lands has a deep roster of specialist art guides who can provide exceptional insight for art connoisseurs. For music lovers, we can arrange hands-on experiences (and performances) with such alluring instruments as India’s sitar, Japan’s koto and shamisen, and the Balinese gamelan orchestra, whose sounds have beguiled composers East and West for centuries.
