There is no simple way to describe the wealth of opportunity that Asia travel offers the adventure seeker. Markets and bazaars, souks and stupas, ancient ruins constructed by grand civilizations long gone, modern cities and villages where life goes on much as it has for centuries. From the hustle and bustle of Bangkok, Delhi, Beijing, Amman and Kathmandu to the overwhelming immensity of the Himalayas, an Asia tour provides the traveller with as much to marvel at as Marco Polo and the explorers of old. Whether you're looking to cross Mongolia, follow the Silk Road to China, trek to Everest base camp, explore Tibet, visit Vietnam or island hop in southern Thailand, Asia is waiting to entrance you.
