Asia’s diversity will blow you mind. There are plugged-on, switched-on cities at the vanguard of technology and trade. Then there are centuries-old traditions and deep spirituality that still rule the hearts of locals. And all the shiny newness just fits right in with old. Temples sit cheek-to-cheekl with glossy skyscrapers; cool and contemporary art spaces jostle with Bali’s terraced rice fields; and climbers retox on top-notch Michelin dishes in Tokyo after climbing the sacred slopes of Mount Fuji. All this during Asia holidays, plus exceptional ancient sites – from the terracotta soldiers of the army of Xi'an to the temples of Angkor – fire-cracking, finger-licking food, and some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world.
