One of the most fascinating and diverse continents on the planet earth is Asia. The creators of the best sushi in the world (Japan), the longest man-made wall ever constructed (China) and home to urban hubs such as Singapore, Hong Kong and Seoul.

Whether you want to discover rich culture, intriguing history, enjoy abundant natural scenery and wildlife or just simply hang at one of the many white sandy beaches or ‘bounty islands’: Asia has got it all! A backpackers favorite because of the economic prices of food and accommodation but more luxurious options are readily available as well.

Of course it is impossible to describe all the Asian countries in a few paragraphs. So scroll down and discover ‘our’ favorites.
