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.
