Why You Should Visit Asia Now?
Asia is a huge place stretching from Europe all the way across the planet to eastern Japan. Stereotypical views tend to concentrate on East Asia; however, there is so much more to the continent. Not to say East Asia isn’t great either, of course. If you are looking to travel and want a diverse experience that takes in every landscape imaginable, here are five reasons you should go to Asia right now.
To describe the whole of Asia’s traditional culinary cultures would require a library of books. From the warming dumplings of Northern China to the fiery cuisine of Thailand and the fusion of different influences within Malaysian cuisine, you will find something to suit your palate. In many countries within Asia, food is more than just eating, it’s a social activity, and there are few experiences better than wandering through night markets as families tuck away their dinners.
Asia has every piece of terrain imaginable, and nearly all of them are photogenic. Even better is seeing them with your own eyes. Climbing the foothills of the Himalayas in India, turning around, and looking back towards the plains that stretch down the country is an awe-inspiring sight. You also have deserts in Mongolia and China, rainforests across South East Asia, and the plains of Central Asia. There will be few occasions where you aren’t lost in a daydream as you take everything in.
One of the most appealing reasons to travel in Asia is the diversity of the continent and the countries on it. Even countries such as China that are typically viewed as culturally homogenous have many minority populations whose cultures are celebrated. In Malaysia, you have Malay, Chinese and Indian influences all playing a part in society which brings an excellent opportunity to learn and experience diversity seen in a few other places in the world.
If you are looking for hot weather, you should be heading south. The mostly tropical SouthEast Asia provides hot weather all year round. Even if it gets too much and you want some cooler places to visit, you can head to the north of Thailand in the winter months or Dalat in Vietnam. If cold weather is your thing, head to the Harbin ice festival, where temperatures drop well below zero, giving the locals the chance to create incredible sculptures with ice blocks.
All of this adds up to the adventure. You will be experiencing new cultures and food while also navigating your way through countries where you don’t speak the local language. Climbing mountains or relaxing on an almost deserted island in the Andaman Sea, you will never lack things to do which will pique your sense of adventure. An obvious roadblock in packing your bags and traveling straight away is financing. If you lack the funds currently, you can take a look at online personal loans, allowing you to take out a loan from a private lender. See any money spent as an investment into your own personal growth and need to satisfy wanderlust.
