When thinking about travelling to Asia, just remember that it is the largest continent, so attempting to see Asia in a few weeks is not going to happen! Luckily it is pretty close to us here in Australia so it is easy to return to fit it all in. Because of this proximity, many holiday makers begin their love affair with travel right here! But it is not all about beaches and cheap souvenirs; or “same same but different” there is so much more. So much in fact that it needs to be divided into its own territories – north Asia, south Asia, south east Asia, central Asia and Indian sub-continent. It stretches from the Pacific Ocean to the Black Sea and there are even polar bears in Asia – truly, in Siberia which technically is in Asia!
India, Japan, China, Indonesia, Malaysia – the opportunities are endless. Each destination in Asia offers its own unique landscapes, cuisine, culture and historical sites. Bustling cities, picturesque rainforests, unique wildlife, hidden temples and more, are on offer throughout these amazing countries. You can relax on the beaches of Indonesia, seek adventure in the snow fields of Japan or take your own pace wandering the streets of Singapore.
Whether you are horse riding over the Mongolian Steppes, exploring the Potala Palace in Tibet, being blinded by the neon of Tokyo, relaxing on the Irrawaddy in Myanmar or spying on tigers in Ranthambore NP, there is definitely a destination in Asia just for you.
