Far East Travel Guides

Updated 12/5/2019

All Titles on this page are available to purchase from Europe, USA and Canada

The Far East is used to describe the geographical, economic, and cultural area that encompasses Eastern Russia (Siberia in particular), East Asia, and Southeast Asia.


In some instances, Pacific island nations are also included as part of the Far East. Use of this phrase dates back to 12th century Europe, when the ruling class, explorers, traders, and travelers took an eastern route to reach this area.


It became common practice to call this region the Far East because it is the farthest of the 3 Eastern Asian regions, which are the: Near East, the Middle East, and the Far East.



This term become popular during the reign of the British Empire, and was used to refer to any area east of British India.

As well as having a geographical context, the term Far East also refers to specific shared cultural traits. 



On this page, I have added a good selection of Travel-Guides, from the Far East rest of the world which include Japan, Malaysia, Bali, Tokio and Singapore.

The page includes links to the most popular theme parks  and includes lonely-planet and rough-guide as well as DK-Eyewitness-Guides.
