Asia has it all – amazing experiences await you…
Asia is trekking tours in Malaysia’s rainforest. Get transported around in rickshaws in the streets of India with sacred cows as the obstacle course. See the Great Wall of China with thousands of years of dramatic history.
Or ride on horseback from India down through the Mongolian steppes or ski in the Japanese Alps.
Or do as approx. 300,000 Danes a year do, go to Thailand and throw yourself on the fabulous beaches or become part of a Buddhist monastery.
From the moment you set foot on the ground somewhere in Asia, you will be engrossed in the completely relaxed, almost spiritual vibe. Here the gods rule in all its guises from both Buddhism, Hinduism and many other denominations.
In addition, it almost seems as if the countries are competing with each other to have the most beautiful beaches, the most delicious exotic food and the most fragrant markets.
East Asia with Mongolia, China, North Korea, Japan and Taiwan stands out from Southeast Asia.
In addition to the climate changing to a mixture of humid subtropical climate in the south and temperate in the north, it is the 2 competing superpowers Japan and China that are the most dominant here.
The difference between South and East Asia
East Asia also has exciting and fascinating experiences to offer. In Japan, it is ancient traditions, elegant temples, Zen Buddhist tea culture and the state-of-the-art sushi restaurants.
In China, it is the enigmatic well-preserved magic, their history of imperial power, to communism, their imperial cities and their incredible landscapes with mighty rivers between the rice fields.
In North Korea, it is strict communism and idolatry of the eternal president that catches the eye, whereas South Korea, which is really getting on the map of countries in express development, offers a myriad of national parks and hiking in the mountains.
There is a great cultural difference in the different regions in terms of ethnic groups, cultures, environment, economy and forms of government.
Yet most regions manage to live in peace with each other in a mix of differences.
Common to all of Asia
One thing they all have in common – a great food culture.
Asian cuisine is an unsurpassed culinary experience. Asia can do something very special, with spices as well as seafood.
Asia’s food culture is a sensual taste experience, filled with fresh vegetables, colors and scents found on every street corner.
If you are adventurous, then you should definitely try one of the fun and exciting street kitchens, where you might want to remain unaware of what you put in your mouth!
