The planet’s largest and most populous continent, Asia is home to nearly 4.5 billion people and covers a third of the entire world’s land area. Asia has the oldest civilizations, the highest peaks, the most populous cities, and the tallest buildings in the world.
About 4.8 million Americans travel there each year. It is a tapestry of history, cultures, religions, vast landscapes, art and architecture. If you’re planning a trip, whether you want to relax on a beach, party the night away, soak up the history or take in the natural beauty, you’re going to have to narrow it down a little.
