From the smoldering volcanoes of Java to the lapping waters of a Thai beach, travel in Asia offers possibilities as vast as the Great Wall. Watch thousands of candle-lit lanterns illuminate the sky in Chiang Mai, enjoy a serene cup of butter tea in a Bhutanese farmhouse, or discover the animated art scene of stylish Saigon.

Quite simply, Asia is immense. That’s why we created our Asia travel blog: to help you explore this massive, multifaceted continent with insight cultivated from our experience in living and loving Asia.
