Asia evokes images of saffron-robed Buddhist monks, golden temples and idyllic islands. A land of mystery, splendid beauty and intriguing contrasts between ultra-modern and ancient. Asia can be anything you want it to be – go for the people and the massive diversity of culture and religion. Go for the adventure – the soaring mountains of Japan, the verdant jungles of Bali, and the absurdly exotic wildlife in Sri Lanka. Go for the food – the curries, the pad thai’s and the exceedingly fresh coconuts. Or simply go for a bit of sun, relaxation and night-long beach parties in Thailand.
