GREAT GAMES OF ASIA

In much the same way as many people in the UK follow tennis or cricket, there are numerous sports that capture national imaginations across Asia. Discover some of the great games and sports that play a huge role in a country's culture, and that you could partake in on your own trip.

HORSE RACING, SUMBA

Sumba, an exquisite, lesser-visited Indonesian island, is famous for its electrifying horse-racing (known as Pasola). A flurry of colour and excitement, watching local races on the beach is an unforgettable travel experience.

You can watch the horse racing as part of our brilliant holiday, Adventure in Java and Sumba, which showcases three astounding and very different areas of Indonesia.

PETANQUE, LAOS

Pentanque (Boules) is a very popular sport and evening activity in Laos, imported over during the colonial period in the late 19th Century. Slow, relaxed and fun, it’s a brilliant way of getting to know the local people.

A game of Petanque can easily be woven into any Laos holiday - why not try Laos to Thailand via the Mekong?

YOGA, INDIA

Yoga has now become an obsession across the world. But there's nothing quite like experiencing it at its birthplace in Northern India. You can visit innumerable retreats and ashrams - ETG would highly recommend Ananda in the Himalaya (pictured).

You can unlock your inner yogi and far more in a holiday like our Uttarkhand Himalayan Adventure.
