Great Destinations ~ Asia Travel Guide!
Welcome to your Asia Travel Guide! Asia is the largest continent on earth, & is home to more than 50 countries ~ countries so different from each other, it’s almost ironic they’re on the same continent. Some of these include: Afghanistan, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia (aka “Backpacker Paradise”), Israel, Japan, Jordan, Pakistan, the Philippines (super popular right now), Russia, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand (my favorite), Turkey, & Vietnam.
Beginning to get an idea how wildly diverse Asia travel can be?
Contemplating travel to Asia can be overwhelming. Where do you start? How can you possibly choose from all these different countries? For novice backpacker’s, Indonesia & Thailand are great choices ~ because you’ll be surrounded by other travelers & longtime backpackers, & both are typically very friendly places. Personally, Thailand is one of my favorite countries in the world. It was my first solo travel trip, & it’s hard to put into words how special I find Thailand to be.
If you’re a more seasoned traveler looking for luxury, Hong Kong or any of China’s major cities would be a good first choice, along with Tokyo in Japan. For those longing to get off-the-beaten path: Bhutan, Laos, Nepal ~ any of these would be a great choice for exploration. The books below will help you sift through your many choices: because there are more choices than you can possibly imagine in Asia.
