Asia

Far East

To a casual observer, the countries that form this continent have been clubbed together apparently on the basis of their overwhelming similarity. While it is true to some extent, this conclusion is largely mistaken. Their histories couldn’t be more dissimilar or their cultures more unlike. Some regions boast landscapes that belong to the future while others are steeped in the past. Prehistoric rainforests cover the surface of some while palms line the beaches of others. Their architecture is as varied as it is rich, and the same can be said about the prevailing myths and superstitions.

 

And as you travel from country to country, the nuances become more apparent. This land keeps no secrets from its guests. It lies willing to be explored.
