The most memorable places and experiences in Asia

magnificent Ankor Wat in Siem Reap (Cambodia)

Shanghai (China), a wonderfully vibrant cosmopolitan city that embodies the future of China

Gyeongju (Korea), a perfect walking museum

Songnisan and the picturesque Beopjusa (Korea), a serene temple nestled in the midst of glorious nature

Tea in Cameron Highlands (Malaysia), a truly serene mountainous area filled with diverse vegetation and tea plantations, and having a pot of their finely brewed tea overlooking the majestic scenery

the sunsets in Damai, Borneo (Malaysia), a wonderful mélange of breathtaking beaches, tropical forests and jungles, and the magical experience of watching the sunsets at the little café on top of the hill

unforgettable meals in Georgetown, Pulau Pinang (Malaysia), a city that is rich in culture diversity and wonderful selection of food

strolling through Melaka (Malaysia), a beautiful little town full of charm and culture

Halong Bay is a breathtakingly beautiful bay in the Gulf of Tonkin, comprised of densely concentrated zone of stone islands. The only way to see it all is to take a leisurely boat ride around the bay (a day trip or an overnight stay) soaking up the spectacular scenery, exploring the grottoes and caves, and just enjoying what seemed like nature’s work of art.

Hanoi is one of the loveliest cities in Asia, with a beautiful Old Town and enchanting neighborhood near St Joseph’s Cathedral, and what we especially loved was going for a stroll in the evenings seeing the reflection of the One Pillar Pagoda glistening off the Turtle Lake.
