Awesome Asia – The Best Bits Unveiled

Asia is certainly up there on many people’s must-see list. There are so many wonderful countries, each with their own incredible cultures. And then, of course, is all the amazing food you can sample from each region! So what would you most love to see in Asia next time you’re traveling? Needless to say, a long-haul flight or two will be necessary, but which bits of Asia would make it all worthwhile?

Vietnam

It’s hot, it’s humid, and it’s stunningly beautiful if you’re lucky enough to explore some of the countryside here. But did you know that you don’t have to be in the countryside to see the beauty and the charm of this country? Cities like Hanoi have an elegance and grace that reflects the time-honored traditions of the Vietnamese people. And in the city, you’ll find a much wider choice of food. Hanoi is the capital city that keeps on giving. There are some fabulous places to eat and some stunning architecture to admire. You’ll find beautiful Vietnamese parks to stroll through too.

Japan

People most often come to Japan for two reasons. The first is business, which is understandable in the tech world! The second is for the beautiful cherry blossoms. You find these almost anywhere, but two cities really do stand out for their floral displays and their elegant architecture. Kyoto, with its Temples and Shrines rarely disappoints any visitor. Hakone has gorgeous springs, beautiful lakes, and a fabulous view of Fuji. Check ahead for the best anticipated dates for a full bloom.

China

From the moment you land at the airport, you can enjoy the best of modern China. You might start somewhere like your Xi An Hotel where you can enjoy a room with a view. From there, you might travel into the city to explore the marvelous Terracotta Army. Incredibly, these 6000 figures were only discovered about 40 years ago. After Xi An, you might explore more of this magnificent and historic country. Check out Shanghai for the best eclectic mix of ancient and modern China.

Indonesia

This nation is an absolute must for any traveler that loves the great outdoors. Indonesia is actually a large collection of volcanic islands. This makes for some of the most extraordinary landscapes in the world. But the beauty of this place doesn’t stop there. It’s hard to find beaches anywhere else that are quite so lovely. Beyond the sandy coastlines, you can also find lush jungles that are home to elephants, tigers, and orangutans. Check out the Komodo dragon and listen out for the gentle gamelan music.

Thailand

Many Thai communities live by or even on the water. Fishing is a big part of life here, so you can find some of the more flavorsome dishes you know and love made with fish. The Emerald Buddha Temple is a firm favorite among tourists, and it is certainly worth visiting this incredible place. Bangkok is a weird and wonderful mix of old and new and is far more modern in some places than you would expect. Enjoy your tour of Asia.
