Asia Attractions And Landmarks Guide

By far the world’s largest continent, Asia is as diverse as it is large. China, Siberia, Nepal and Jordan are all parts of Asia, as are Sri Lanka, Iran, Mongolia and Dubai. So a trip to Asia can encompass many regions, cultures, religions – and decisions. Given its size and breadth, taking a guided tour can be an efficient way to experience a taste of Asia. Stride can help sort it all out for you – from Indonesia to India to Israel, Asia is varied, intriguing, and endlessly fascinating.

Asia – whose land mass of more than 17 million square miles is more than four times that of Europe – incorporates so many different nations and cultures that it can be hard to grasp its depth and breadth. Asia is also changing rapidly: industrializing, digitizing, globalizing, and modernizing to sometimes the nth degree while still retaining, in many places, its pastoral and exotic charms. Still, it’s good to go sooner than later to see aspects of the old Asia along with the new.

Do you start with fast-developing China, the world’s most populous nation, where million-plus cities seem to spring up overnight? From world icons like the Great Wall and Beijing’s Forbidden City to ultra-hip Shanghai and teeming Hong Kong (a special administrative region), it tops many travelers’ wish lists. Or do you opt for the temples, pulsating cities and culinary delights of Japan and Korea?

Southeast Asia Calling

Perhaps a Southeast Asia sojourn is at hand. Thailand, Myanmar (Burma), Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore are home to architectural treasures ranging from Bangkok’s Royal Palace to the grand ruins of Cambodia’s Temple Angkor Wat and Indonesia’s ninth-century temple Borobudur. Southeast Asia’s beaches, cuisines and surviving rural cultures and landscapes are all traveler favorites, while river cruising on the Mekong and Irrawaddy are hot tickets.

India, Bhutan, Nepal and Sri Lanka form another fascinating region. While India can be chaotic (a perfect destination for a guided tour), an early-morning boat ride on the Ganges in the Hindu holy city of Varanasi or a visit to Agra’s Taj Mahal are never-to-be-forgotten experiences. Nepal is the ultimate high for Himalayan trekkers, while Bhutan serves up bliss amid the mountain peaks. Sri Lanka is emerging from years of civil strife to display its lush, peaceful side.

The Ancient Silk Route

Much of Russia – from the Ural Mountains to eastern Siberia – lies in Asia, as does Mongolia, land of yurts and horsemen. Central Asia is a vast expanse of “stans”: Uzbekistan’s Samarkand, Bukhara and Tashkent were pillars along the old nomadic Silk Route from China. The ancient Babylonian and Persian empires live on in modern-day Iraq and Iran – an option for adventurous travelers. Parts of the Middle East are also troubled, though the United Arab Emirates – with its star attraction, Dubai -- and some other areas of the exotic Arabian Peninsula still beckon (even Saudi Arabia is starting to open up to non-Islamic tourism).

Israel and Jordan are at peace, offering the opportunity to visit both ancient Jerusalem and nearby Petra, Jordan’s wondrous rock city. Much of Turkey lies in Asia as well – including the unique cave dwellings of Cappadocia and the beaches of the Turkish Riviera.

While a quick overview can barely scratch the surface of Asian travel, Stride can ease the confusion with our easy-to-use comparison tools. After sizing up our plentiful offerings of guided tours, river cruises and active vacation packages, you can then decide which Asian region is the best fit for you. And chances are you’ll want to return again and again to sample more of all the cultural and adventurous discoveries that Asia has in store.

A great time of this forever changing amazing country Vietnam

My Vietnam trip 14 days

5.0 June 2017 Insight Asia Travel Recommend: Yes Insight Asia Travel Hanoi is a company I have personally used for many visits over the last several years on previous holidays to Vietnam and Cambodia .
My most recent trip was with my family been my wife and a 6 year old son in August 2016 .
As per usual we were greeted at the airport by our local guide / travel manager to assist with our check in to our centrally located hotel in the centre of town in Saigon HCMC . We had many day tours to the Mekong Delta and Cu Chi Tunnels , war remnants museum , Independence Palace and to local market places along with a brief walking tour close to the surrounds of the hotel to see the the old post office and cathederal . The hustle and bustle of this amazing city always amazes me as its forever changing after each visit .

The hydrofoil ride up the Saigon river is also a great way to go for the transfers to the peninsula of Vung Tau which takes approx 1 hour 35 min . It takes 3 hours by car or mini van depending on your group size . This is also great as you can see lots of the local villages and town enroute with a couple of stops along the way .

The hotels and tours are all very well handled along with various restaurants chosen for meals as recommended . There is also plenty of time to search around for your own preferences .
Again many local tours in and around the peninsula are a must see.
Domestic airfares are easily done and can be arranged accordingly .
Saigon to Hanoi is approx 2 hours flight. I would suggest that any internal flights or accommodation be held confirmed especially in peak holiday periods to avoid any dissappointment which can be arranged with your guide or have in place before you leave home .
The beautiful capital city of Hanoi has got to be my most favourable city in all of Asia . The old french quarter and Hoan Kiem Lake is very relaxing as you watch the world go by . The water puppet show is a must see traditional part of Vietnamese culture . Ha Long Bay just beautiful with 1 to 3 night stays onboard the cruise junks which are fully inclusive are just fantastic . The overnight train in the sleeper carriages is a great experience approx 12 hours going north
to highlands of Sapa .
There are so many things to see and do and I would have no hesitation to advise other travellers of my experiences with this company . All the staff along with local guides and various tours always go by the scheduled time frame to allow to fit in others things on a day to day basis . The hotels I've stayed in over the years are in great location along with nice clean rooms and good service . Some with swimming pools and some that don't have which isn't high on my list at times .
Overall the memorable times that I've had are all thanks to the expertise of Insight Asia Travel Hanoi and local travel guides and managers which go out of their way to make sure everything is just perfect for you to have a great time of this forever changing amazing country .

Amazing trek to ABC!

Annapurna Base Camp Trekking

5.0 April 2017 Sunrise Adventure Recommend: Yes My friend and I recently traveled to Nepal from the United States and had an amazing experience trekking to Annapurna Base Camp with sunrise adventure travel! We met Suresh in Kathmandu and he was incredibly helpful in setting up our trek and accommodation/activities in Pokhara post trek. Our guide, Palman (aka Paul) was amazing as well!! He was knowledgeable, patient, trustworthy, and kept us laughing with his hilarious sense of humor (which matched our own spot on!). Everything worked out exactly as Suresh promised that it would and he checked in before and after the trek to make sure that we were pleased with how things were going. We definitely felt that we were in good hands with both gentleman and would highly recommend Sunrise Adventure Travel. The prices were very fair and our experience was unbeatable. Thanks again, SAT!
