Asia is a melting pot of various cultures which has withstood the test of times. Diversity defines the region from its people to its culture, from the traditions to the gastronomic delights.
Widely dispersed in the globe, the countries in Asia present contrasting pictures but remain united under one description – enchanting! Asia is gifted with scenic natural wonders from the
romantic and spiritual beaches of Phuket and Maldives to the peak of Mt. Everest in Nepal. Meanwhile, man-made structures are as jaw-dropping as the natural wonders. The ancient Great Wall of China remains a wonder even in space, and heritage sites in Macau continues to draw in tourists.
Meanwhile, modern-day Asian skyscrapers are among the tallest in the world like the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur and the Singapore Flyer.
India is crowded but colourful, the complete opposite of Singapore which is defined by cleanliness and disciplined people.
Also, tourists simply cannot resist the smiles and the sanuk lifestyle of the people of Thailand. Contemplative visitors find refuge in the
temples of Bangkok while risk-takers wager at the casinos of Macau and shopaholics splurge at the malls in Singapore and Hong Kong.
Aside from enchanting sites, inexpensive travel is also associated with Asian countries (except for Japan). From budget accommodations to affordable food, Asia has room for travellers on a tight budget.
Speaking of food, who could say no to Oriental cuisines? Indulge in the dim sum and dumplings of China, the ramen of Japan, the curry of India and
the Tom Yang of Thailand. Definitely, Asia knows how to satisfy your tummy!
Indeed, the largest continent of the world is never devoid of places and things to discover. Let Asia enchant you!
