The most populous continent on earth, Asia is a vast tapestry of exotic and contradictory cultures, cuisines, religions and landscapes. It’s a mishmash of heaving metropolises and tiny villages, ancient history and sci-fi technology, honking rivers of traffic and peaceful places of worship, verdant jungles and remote mountain passes. Asia has something for everyone: the foodie, the adventurer, the history buff, the culture aficionado, and the solace seeker alike will find themselves captivated with the continent’s myriad charms. Whether it’s the idea of slurping noodle soup in Hanoi, seeing the sunrise over Angkor Wat, haggling for bargains in Beijing’s Silk Market, or making it to Everest base camp that sets your heart racing, we know just one trip won’t be enough.
