Modern, ancient and mysterious – Asia is a continent of contrasts having stood the test of time with its deep traditions, colorful landscapes and warm hospitality.
A land of emperors and dynasties, monastical vows and century’s old rituals, Asia is beholden to its past, as it is to its bright future. The modern skyline of places like Singapore, Beijing and Tokyo sit in stark contrast to the ancient temples and palaces that were once the center of culture and politics of yesteryear.
The beauty of Asia’s natural settings is equally stunning, with quiet mountain towns and fishing villages often within a stone’s throw of ancient ruins or burial sites. Relying on the land and the sea for centuries, these are cultures that have formed cherished traditions.
From religion to food, exploring those unique relationships between man and the earth makes trekking through Asia a never-ending delight.
