STOWE, Vermont -- Adventurous, exploratory, distinctive, and rare all describe THE vacation of a lifetime. Boundless Journeys' staff creates unique and inspiring adventures, looking for up-and-coming destinations, based on their own travel experiences. Several exciting new "emerging" destinations for 2008 are added to an already diverse collection of Boundless Journeys' global adventures. Following is a list of Boundless Journeys' new journeys for 2008, along with why these destinations and experiences are emerging right now ― and will soon to at the top of every adventurous traveler's wish list:

China: Rediscovering an Ancient Empire (
Why China, you ask? As China embraces a market-based economy, development is booming. The skylines of Shanghai and Beijing are rapidly growing, leaving many jaws dangling at the incredible changes. The Olympics are coming, and yet the mystical, exotic qualities of diverse Chinese cultures, beautiful landscape, and fascinating history still comprise the platform on which this great Chinese journey is built.

China: Yunnan to Tibet (
Another side of the China coin, Yunnan remains relatively undeveloped, and Tibet still offers a strong Buddhist flavor. Emerging as a hot destination for the Chinese themselves, international adventurers are now discovering the charms of these quintessential Chinese destinations.

Bhutan: Festivals of Bhutan (
Bhutan has been a bragging-rights destination for sophisticated travelers for years. Traditionally, festival times were avoided because accommodations were very limited. Using the great connections that can only come from knowing Bhutan for years, Boundless Journeys now immerses guests in special tsechu festivals, rounded out with beautiful day hikes and a comfortable and authentically Bhutanese place to rest at night.

Nepal: Annapurna Trek & Tiger Safari (
On the cusp of a serious revival after a peace agreement was signed in late 2006, ending years of civil strife, Nepal is re-emerging as THE Himalayan trekking destination. Boundless Journeys combines trekking through the foothills of the Annapurnas with an easy rafting excursion on the Seti River, and game viewing by elephant back in Royal Chitwan National Park in search of the elusive Bengal tiger.

Peru & Bolivia: Epic Andean Journey (
With the recent development of a community-based sea kayaking experience on Lake Titicaca (coined "Titikayak"), the combination of Peru and Bolivia is more enticing than ever to the eco-conscious traveler. An epic journey through two of South America's most fascinating cultural destinations, Boundless Journeys guests will explore Machu Picchu, Cusco, Lake Titicaca, and La Paz, fascinating cultures past and present, Inca history, Quechua villages, and the floating islands of Uros.

Costa Rica: Rainforests & Volcanoes Family Adventure (
Like Bhutan, Costa Rica is another example of a perennial favorite that is emerging with a new angle ― it is an ideal first international adventure for families traveling with kids. Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, Arenal Volcano, and Tortuguero National Park; monkeys, tapirs, amazing birdlife; easy hikes, zipline canopy tours, and soaking in hot springs are all part of Boundless Journeys' already popular new family trip.

The land cost for a Boundless Journeys trip typically includes the following: expert leadership, accommodations, all or most meals, all activities as noted in itinerary and necessary equipment, ground transportation, luggage transport, entrance fees and permits, gratuities for meals, porters, and hotel service.
