The second largest city in South Korea is Busan and is your gateway to a fascinating land whose culture is a unique amalgam of old and new where Modern high-rise towers dwarf ancient Buddhist temples. Russia is not a common tourist destination, but Vladivostok, long closed to Western visitors, will awe you. From its fine cathedral and Russian architecture to Golden Horn Harbor, you'll be amazed by Russia's main base for its Pacific fleet. A Change of culture as you arrive in Sapporo, Japan and then again in Anchorage, Alaska. Anchorage, A town at the base of the Chugach Mountains in the shadow of a towering glacier and surrounded by snowcapped peaks, the tiny town of Whittier is the gateway to the spectacular Prince William Sound. Scenic Cruise around the breathtaking Hubbard Glacier and dock in Juneau. Perched on a thin strip of land at the mouth of Gold Creek, Juneau is arguably one of America's most beautiful state capitals, with the looming summits of Mt. Juneau and Mt.
