Top Luxury Hotels in Asia

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. Bhutan, Shanghai vs. Shima. The region is also home to ancient civilizations from China to India and Turkey whose traditions continue to seep through into the cultures of many countries today.

If culture is the main allure, destinations like Kyoto, 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 Tokyo, Dubai and Hong Kong is as heritage or as swanky as you want them to be. Meanwhile Phuket, Lombok, Bali, 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 urban luxury hotels to the most exotic luxury travel experiences in the world tucked away in remote villages, when in doubt for your next travel destination, head east.
