Asia is comprised of 48 countries, so it can be hard to narrow down where to begin your visit. It also contains the two most populated countries in the world, China and India!
While it would take years to truly explore every corner of this continent, most travelers begin in Southeast Asia (like me!). Backpacking is the most popular way to travel through the countries of Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Indonesia (hello, Bali!). While these countries attract a large backpacking crowd, there are luxury gems at every corner too.
Bigger cities like Tokyo, Shanghai, and Hong Kong attract travelers from all over the world. And of course, I can’t forget THE FOOD! With so much variety in cuisine, you will have lasting memories of the food, I promise.
