A varied array of cultures and traditions, exotic cuisines, one of the largest emerging business markets, Asia is where you are.

Asia a destination that everyone would like to visit at least once in their lifetime. It offers a varied landscape from densely populated cities, to open fields, secluded beaches, mountain peaks and dense tropical forests.

Hong Kong situated on the southeastern tip of China is one of the most densely populated regions in the world.

Japan located in Eastern Asia, is an island chain between the North Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Japan, east of the Korean Peninsula.

Thailand is roughly the same size as France. Thailand shares borders with Myanmar to the west and north, Laos to the northeast, Cambodia to the east, and Malaysia to the south.

Indonesia is the world's largest archipelago with more than 17,000 islands lying between the Indian and Pacific Ocean, also spread out between East Asia and Australia.

Malaysia is divided into two parts with the Peninsula in Southeastern Asia, peninsula and West Malaysia taking up one-third of the island of Borneo, bordering Indonesia and the South China Sea.

China spans a total area of about 9.500,000 sq km and borders several countries such as Mongolia, Myanmar, Pakistan, Russia and several bodies of water such as theYellow Sea and South China Sea.

Taiwan is made up of 14 ifferent islands. The main island of Taiwan is about 240 miles long and about 90 miles wide.

Vietnam, Loas and Cambodia are clustered next to each other just above Thailand, making up the Northern countries of Asia.

You're out for contrast and then you must explore this continent. There is no region in the world with more variety than Asia. Emerge yourself in the culture and traditions, get to know the people, taste the cuisine, and enjoy the splendors of Asia!
