Welcome to Asia, the most populous, energetic, exotic and contradictory continent on earth. Across one vast landmass you’ll find sci-fi skyscrapers and whitewashed mountain monasteries, honking moped shoals and silent Taoist temples, neon cityscapes and saffron-clad monks bent in prayer. If you’ve come for the familiar, you’re in for a surprise. When you’re munching deep-fried grasshoppers with white pepper in Thailand, riding across the Mongolian tundra, exploring the rice paddy fields in Bali and swimming with Burmese sea-gypsies, you begin to understand: this place is where ordinary goes to die.

New trips in Asia 

It fits that the continent dedicated to progress and reinvention keeps throwing up some fantastic new adventures. This year you can follow the Silk Road through the mountains and valleys of western China, watch fireflies fill the night sky in the Philippines and kayak with dolphins off the coast of Cambodia. Extraordinary never looked so good.
