What we love about Asia
Asia is home to some of the ancient architecture and empires of the world and full of fascinating historical sites, each with their own unique charm. It comprises 48 countries, so it’s hard to constringe where to begin your travel. Culturally, Asia is far too lively and diverse, there are so many different languages, beliefs, lifestyles, traditions, fashions and customs to engross yourself in and explore, all within a culturally grown area. Asian cultures work very hard to maintain their historical rituals and practices, even as vogue sweeps through the area and the most catchy part of a visit to this area of the world is the open, smiling and happy face people you found. In asia you can find optimistic feeling almost everywhere you go.
Most backpackers who spend a significant amount of time in the area will have at least one moving story of being invited to dance along at an Indian festivals. Asian food is the number one and only reason for scheduling a visit to the far east. Most backpackers must work hard to make their money stretch as much as possible. In many places in Asia the pressure on wallet is off, like India, Vietnam and Laos, where you can easily get by on $18 a day on most days. Southeast Asia is one of the facile and cut-rate places to travel in the world. One can discover temples, rainforests and beaches in Thailand, metropolises and vast tea plantations in India and green rice field and amazing cuisine in Indonesia. Local transportation are also well-established, bus and railway networks make it easy to roam, often for just a few bucks. The only thing you need to keep in mind when planning a trip to Asia is the monsoon season. It varies from place to place, so it’s easy to pick a destination where the rain has yet to hit. If you’re on a budget, you’ll probably want to follow the monsoon. With most wanderers preferring the dry season.

The region boasts some of the world’s best beaches, lush jungles, beautiful temples, and bustling markets.

If you love the crazy drivers of big cities, Southeast Asia has some of the erratic, breath-taking and fast-moving cities like Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City (most populous city of Vietnam).
We would not forgive ourselves, nor would any of our backpackers, if we did not include the Taj Mahal in our list of The Seven Wonders of the Asian world. Another part of the official modern wonders of the world, the Taj epitomises ‘seeing is believing’.
