A sweeping categorization of continents may simplify coloring exercises in geography class, but when it comes to travel experiences, Asia is as diverse as its multitudinous destinations – think Bangkok vs. Bali. The region is also home to ancient civilizations from China to India whose traditions continue to seep through into the cultures of many countries today.
If culture is the main allure, destinations like Abu Dhabi, Chiang Mai, Luang Prabang and Yangon offer picturesque launch pads to delve deeper, or to simply simmer on the overlap of the traditional and the modern. Urban playgrounds such as Dubai and Hong Kong is as heritage or as swanky as you want them to be. Meanwhile Phuket, Lombok, Koh Samui and the many other tropical getaway hotspots in Asia can be as indulgent or as rustic as your body and soul desires.
Whether its sky-scraping cities in the Far East or the latest beach destinations on the travelers' trail, the sheer fascination of east-meets-west, old-meets-new, remains a quintessentially Asian trademark. From some of the best luxury hotels to the most exotic luxury travel experiences in the world, when in doubt for your next travel destination, head east.
