Welcome to Asia, the most populous, energetic 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.

Highlights of Asia

Travellers jumping in front of yurt camp, Uzbekistan

Sleep at a yurt camp

A yurt camp in the middle of the Kyzylkum desert in Uzbekistan might not be your typical night's accommodation, but it’s all part of the adventure. Spend the evening around a campfire, enjoy the sounds of local music and fall asleep under the stars.

Cooking a local meal in a Thai village

Explore a local Thai village

Spending time at a remote village in Northern Thailand is more than an incredible, immersive cultural experience – it’s a real privilege. Staying at the home of locals, you’ll be treated to a traditional khantok dinner and a musical performance to wrap up the night. Talk about one-of-a-kind moments!

Smiling worker at tea plantation in Sri Lanka

Taste fragrant tea

Surrounded by vibrant green hills, the gorgeous tea-growing area of Nuwara Eliya (just a short journey from Kandy, Sri Lanka) awaits. Here, the cultivation of fragrant, highly-regarded tea varieties is best understood with a stop at a tea factory which makes for a memorable visit.

Woman looking out at a garden from inside a ryokan in Japan

Stay at a ryokan

To complete your cultural immersion in all things Japan-related, a night spent at a ryokan (a traditional Japanese inn) is a quintessential experience. Throw on a kimono, slip off your shoes, sip on a cup of hot tea and enjoy a traditional meal while you’re at it.

What to see in 7-10 days in Asia

7-10 days is the perfect amount of time to explore one or two countries while still getting a chance to soak up the sights, sounds and cultural encounters within a destination. You could take to the streets of Vietnam and get lost in Ho Chi Minh City. Next up, just jump on a short flight to Hoi An where you can feast on tasty dishes like cao lau that you won’t find elsewhere in the country. Depending on your timeframe, you can slowly hop your way up to the picture-perfect scenery of Halong Bay before ending in the capital, Hanoi.

Another option if you want to squeeze as much into a trip as possible, would be to start in Thailand then breeze through the best spots in Cambodia and end your travels in Vietnam. You could kick start the adventure in bustling Bangkok, tick Angkor Wat off your bucket list, spend time at a homestay in a rural village and end in Ho Chi Minh City.

What to see in 3 weeks in Asia

As a region with so much packed into this corner of the world, three weeks allows you to eat, relax, and explore without ever feeling rushed. Depending on how you want to travel and what you wish to see, you can take your time and explore just one country, or multiple. If India captures your attention, you can spend time slowly travelling through Northern India to visit Delhi, Udaipur, Pushkar, Agra and Varanasi with plenty of time for a few detours and memorable experiences along the way.

If it’s a fast-paced adventure that captures your attention, consider combining multiple countries as you travel from Beijing to Hong Kong. You can enjoy a food-filled experience in Beijing and try the famous crispy Peking duck, walk along the Great Wall, wander through the rice terraces in the Longji Valley and round off your trip with a journey all the way through to Hong Kong.

What to see in 6 weeks in Asia

Now, this is what a big ol’ adventure looks like. The world is yours to explore, and Asia is packed with authentic encounters, real-life experiences and moments you won’t find back home. To start with, you could spend time getting acquainted with Malaysia and jump on a trip that begins in Kuala Lumpur, cruise down the Kinabatangan river in search for wildlife or you can even climb Mt Kinabalu. You can spend a few weeks here but if time allows, you can always visit Borneo, Thailand or Singapore just nearby.

If it’s a whirlwind adventure of epic proportions that you’re after, an extended journey along the Silk Road should be on your agenda for this year. Starting in Beijing, you can spend time exploring the must-visit sites of China before travelling via an overnight train, bus, highspeed train or even the subway through to Tashkent. On this journey, you’ll crisscross your way past Kashgar, Samarkand and other notable stops where there’s no shortage of experiences.
