Being the world’s biggest and most inhabited continent, Asia is home to countless natural, historical, and cultural attractions, and offers a long list of opportunities for unforgettable and enriching experiences. Made up of more than 50 countries and states, and populated by over 4 billion people, its ancient civilizations boast of several important contributions to the society, and are credited for some of the best natural and man-made wonders the world has ever seen.
In Nepal, we can find the world’s highest mountain, Mount Everest, which is in almost every adventure-lover’s bucketlist. In China, there are the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, and the Terracotta Army, which are three of the most iconic historical landmarks in the world. In Southeast Asia, the countries of Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, and Vietnam are known for many of the most incredible white sand beaches (Krabi, Ko Lanta, and Ko Samui in Thailand; Boracay and Puerto Galera in the Philippines; Nihiwatu Beach and Canggu Beach in Indonesia; and Mui Ne, Phu Quoc, and Nha Trang in Vietnam) on the planet. And, in East Asia, in the dynamic and bustling metropolises of Tokyo, Seoul, Shanghai, Taipei, and Hong Kong, there are many skyscrapers, technological innovations, and modern architecture (Skytree and Nakagin Capsule Tower in Tokyo; 63 Building and Lotte World Tower in Seoul; Shanghai World Financial Center and Oriental Pearl Tower in Shanghai; Taipei 101 in Taipei; and Opus Hong Kong, Hong Kong Design Institute, and Innovation Tower at Polytechnic University in Hong Kong) that can rival the West.
