Asia has 48 countries including Turkey and Russia (part of Siberia). If you think all Asian countries are the same, you'll be surprised when you visit. You'll discover one-of-a-kind finds in each country - and some cities within the same country have their unique culture, religion, history and landscape. For example, Yogyakarta and Jakarta are located in the same Java Island in Indonesia but their history, culture and food are not the same. You can read more about it here under Indonesia.
Come with me to the ger camp of Mongolia, Great Wall of China, street food corners in Shanghai, jockey club in Hong Kong, Borobudur Buddhist Temple in Yogyakarta, the rice terraces of Ubud Bali and more.
I grew up in Asia, to be precise Malaysia. I've spent years traveling in Asia but I've not been to all the countries.
Last year my family and I spent three months traveling in Mongolia, China and Indonesia. We ate a few thousand meals in the apartments and in all sorts of dining places with the locals. We took time exploring the cities and countryside on our own using the metro, taxis, buses and trains. In Mongolia we had a tour leader and a tour guide and in Indonesia we hired drivers to take us around. I've shared some of these experiences here.
Take time to read through and send me an email if you have any questions about the destinations below. I'll be adding more soon.
