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

Asia is 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 close to France in size. It borders Laos to the northeast, Malaysia to the south, Myanmar to the west and north, Kampuchea and Cambodia to the east

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 the Yellow 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, Laos 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!

Kuala Lumpur Travel guide

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia is one of Asia’s fastest growing cities. It has blossomed from nothing into a contemporary, bustling urban place. Today, it joined the pack of the famous cities because of its soaring skyscrapers. It even holds the record of the tallest building in the world, the Petronas Twin Towers, making a trademark as an Asian city with polished sky-reaching buildings.
