Asia

The biggest and most diverse continent is Asia. The range of cultures, landscapes and economies is vast. Where to start your travels in Asia is a big decision, whether you’re a backpacker on a budget, on a package holiday or wanting to spend big in the cities. It’s doubtful anyone will do this continent justice on a single trip, even if you are visiting several countries, it’s just too big. If you are coming from Australia, then Indonesia is close enough for an amazing experience, with Bali being a popular tourist destination. Hong Kong is a treat for the senses, with its unique blend of Chinese influence and old British empire. One of the most popular destinations in south east Asia is of course Thailand, the backpacker’s favourite of exotic experiences, street food landscape and incredible people. At the other end of the budget is Japan, where the ultra-modern high tech meets deep tradition and Zen Buddhism. India is a sub-continent to itself, with its own blend of amazing countryside, food and tradition. It’s essential to be conscious of all the relevant health issues when travelling around Asia, be sure to get the right jabs and be prepared for slow service in many places.
