    Malaysia Peninsular

    A center of trade for many centuries, Peninsular Malaysia has always been a cultural melting pot. Influenced by everything from Indian Hinduism and Buddhism; Indonesian Islam; Portuguese, Dutch and British colonialism; and a Japanese occupation during WWII—Malaysia is sure-footedly embracing its complex identity and forging its place in contemporary Asia.

    Maldives

    If breathtaking alabaster white sand, coconut palms, the clearest turquoise water and private island resorts sound like the perfect retreat, the idyllic beaches of the Maldives, often considered some of the best in the world, may be a destination with your name on it. Located in the warm seas of the Indian Ocean, this tiny South Asian nation is comprised of 1,200 postcard-worthy coral islands with a mere 200 that are inhabited. Paradise extends beneath the clear blue waters that surround the Maldives. Exceptional diving and snorkeling unveils a natural wonderland of endemic marine life that includes manta rays, sharks, turtles and colossal whale sharks, along with gleaming soft coral, lagoons and sea-side caves.

    Thailand

    Thailand is Asia at its most welcoming and accessible. Exploring this exotic land gives you an opportunity to experience traditional Thai culture, explore hill tribes, discover lively arts, traverse tranquil islands, trek into lush rainforests and enjoy superb cuisine. Bustling cities like Bangkok feature modern high-rises, street-food stands, breathtaking temples and the friendliest of locals. Chiang Mai, on the other hand, offers more subdued art and tranquility in the northern mountains. Southern Thailand’s splendid and unrivaled beaches arguably surpass the beauty of any other on Earth.

    Tibet

    Perhaps it's Tibet's roof-of-the-world elevation, or its creation myth that had it connected to heaven by a rope: Tibet seems to be somehow suspended between heaven and earth, studded with places of worship and mountains that scrape the sky. Despite an intense modernization campaign by the Chinese government, the Tibetan people retain a transcendent spiritual quality that informs every aspect of their lives, which makes their home on the Earth's highest plateau one of the world's most intriguing travel destinations.

    Vietnam

    Steeped in a history of powerful dynasties, diverse religious traditions, and political transformations, Vietnam transformation is dizzying. But amidst these rapid changes, there is an undercurrent of positivity and hopefulness throughout the country. It's a thrill to immerse yourself in the ebb-and-flow of daily Vietnamese life. The chaos of honking horns, active noodle stands, modern high-rises and bustling city-centers eventually become rhythmic and seemingly orderly. Contrasted with tranquil rice fields, French-colonial remnants and peaceful country-sides, the yin and yang of this nation becomes most evident. The nation is racing into modernity, but ancient traditions endure, arts are once again flourishing and the cuisine is so good, it's worth a trip just to try the banh khoai.

    Turkey

    At the crossroads of Asia and Europe, Turkey’s fortuitous location has made it the world's greatest epicenter of exchange between East and West for the past 5,000 years. The culmination of the Silk Road and the capital of four distinct empires, for sheer cultural wealth and diversity, Turkey is unrivaled. 

    Travel throughout Turkey is a veritable journey into the discovery of the past. Echoes of empires that include Greek, Roman, Persian and Ottoman influence virtually every aspect of Turkish tradition and life.

    Papua New Guinea

    Synonymous with adventure and home to the world's most exotic tribes, a trip to Papua New Guinea in the South Pacific is an anthropological tour de force: hundreds of distinct tribes speak 850 mutually unintelligible tongues. Barely post-Stone-Age agricultural practices, complex tribal liaisons, ancestor cults, and wild cultural celebrations make Papua New Guinea the last frontier of adventure travel.

    Sri Lanka

    An emerging destination in world travel, the small island country of Sri Lanka offers an amazing variety of experiences in close proximity. Explore ancient Buddhist archaeological sites, colonial tea plantations, wildlife sanctuaries and age-old cities. Throughout this lush land elephants roam freely, birding is a national pastime and an awareness of our place in the environment pervades all aspects of life.

    New Zealand

    New Zealand is a land of spectacular scenic beauty. Its 5,700 miles of gorgeous coastline are punctuated by tree-lined bays and towering cliffs. Magnificent glacial mountains loom over fjords, and volcanoes tower above arid deserts. Dramatic, steaming geothermal regions contrast with wide-open golden plains, while intensely green subtropical forest covers miles of countryside. It's no small wonder New Zealand was chosen as the filming location for Tolkien's magical Middle-earth.

    Nepal

    The most stunning mountains in Asia, let alone the world, can be found in Nepal. Glorious mountain ranges are dotted with traditional Buddhist and Hindu communities. The nation’s lowland jungles are blanketed with unique and accessible wildlife. With some of the most notable UNESCO World Heritage cultural sites throughout its ancient towns, it's easy to understand why the kingdom of Nepal continues to be one of the world's greatest adventure travel destinations.

    Myanmar

    There is no time like the present and that has never been more apt than now. It’s a golden moment for travel to Myanmar, often referred to as Burma. The country is opening its doors, and a joie de vivre is permeating the land. At the same time, there is a palpable sense that sweeping change will ensue. A trip to Myanmar can now access areas that have been isolated from the outside world for decades. Explore Yangon, one of Asia’s most charming cities, archaeological splendors like Bagan and witness the famed Intha “leg-rowers” fish the scenic Inle Lake.

    Mongolia

    Connoisseurs of adventure travel take note: Mongolia opened up to the outside world two decades ago, and the few who have ventured into this majestic land have witnessed one of the world's last remaining horse-based nomadic cultures. A vanishing veneer of 20th-century Soviet socialism had little impact on traditional Mongolian life. Most people still live in felt gers (yurts) with their livestock and horses by their side, practicing Tibetan Buddhism and a pastoral lifestyle that has remained unchanged for centuries.

    Micronesia

    Micronesia is composed of over 2,000 islands, of which only 125 are inhabited. It remains untouched by mass tourism and is a rare find for those looking to get out of the tourist ruts. Known as the "Cradle of Indo-Pacific Marine Life," Micronesia provides unsurpassed snorkeling. With water, water everywhere, 4.5 million square miles to be exact, its best sites lie in the Big Blue. Palau, Yap and Pohnpei sport spectacular reefs, channels and lagoons. In Palau, three ocean currents converge to host some of the most dazzling marine life in the world. There are over 70 documented snorkel spots in Palau alone.

    Laos

    Travel to Laos to experience a bastion of tradition and one of the best-kept secrets in Asia. Its quiet ambiance, relaxed pace and striking natural beauty nourish one's spirit like the slow-flowing waters of the Mekong provide a lifeline to the Laotian people. Timeless rural scenes and a calm spirituality comprise the warp and weft of Lao life, a place where the soul is slowly awakened to an ancient tempo, all but forgotten in the modern world.

    Japan

    Japan is singularly defined by its ability to preserve ancient traditions while thriving amidst the most modern of societies. The nation’s rich history and technological prowess provides many points-of-interests to explore – from modern Tokyo’s bustling streets, Kroto’s cultural treasures, picture-perfect valleys in Takayama to the bubbling and therapeutic mineral spas of scenic Hakone. It’s the land where the national sport, Sumo wrestling (dating back to 200 AD as a Shinto rite to produce an abundant harvest), vies for TV time with the post WWII-era baseball craze. Highly ritualized yet simple, elegant yet bold, traditional yet evolving, static yet dynamic -- Japan's contradictions are utterly fascinating.

    Indonesia

    Indonesia's islands (17,000 at last count) are scattered across the Pacific, covering an area comparable to that of California to Maine. Rainforests, rice fields, ancient monuments, prolific wildlife and over 300 distinct traditional cultures are strewn throughout the vast archipelago and make for wondrous exploration. It's one of the earth's most diverse destinations in every possible way. The experience of Indonesia is a cultural and natural jigsaw puzzle that both challenges and intrigues the most astute travelers.

    China

    After decades of self-imposed isolation and agonizing self-destruction in the 20th century, China is mobilizing and building at a frenetic pace in the 21st, reclaiming its historic role as Asia's greatest cultural, political and economic power. Known for centuries in Asia as the "Middle Kingdom," China's influences on most, if not all, cultures of the Far East are comparable to Greek and Roman, and later French and British influences, on Western culture.

    China is a force to be reckoned with and one of the world's most compelling cultures. Travel to China now to experience this great nation poised in the midst of its profound metamorphosis.

    Central Asia

    Kashgar, Samarkand, Ashgabat, Tashkent, Khiva and Bukhara - these names resound with the poetry of a bygone era. Epic history is strewn across Central Asia’s mountain ranges, deserts and steppes, where ancient ruins and sublime minarets recall the great exploits of empires from Alexander the Great to Tamerlane. Some of the world's greatest centers of civilization flourished in this storied region for centuries, and perhaps would be counted among the great cities today, were it not for the ravages of Genghis Khan.

    Cambodia

    The Khmer ruins at Angkor include some of Asia’s most recognized and iconic. The visible central portion of the temple complex extends across an area the size of Manhattan and the largest religious monument on the planet. Recent satellite images reveal that the actual size of the one-time capital of the Khmer Empire to be comparable to present-day Los Angeles, making it the largest city in the world dating from the pre-industrial era. The temples represent one of humankind's most astonishing and enduring artistic and architectural achievements.

    Malaysia Borneo

    Borneo. The name rings with end-of-the-earth appeal, occupying an almost mythological place in the traveler's lexicon, as though it were a jungle-covered Atlantis. Travel to Borneo reveals wonders that these wonders are actually very real - rainforests teem with wildlife such as the pygmy Asian elephant, proboscis monkey, clouded leopard, slow loris, sun bear, barking deer, pig-tailed macaque and the huge flying fox bat. The profusion and variety of bird species is also astounding. Eco-tourism offers a unique vantage-point from within prized wildlife sanctuaries.

    Australia

    Like a masterpiece composed in multiple mediums, Australia is a study in contrasting form. Lush green rainforest and deep-blue oceans are seemingly worlds away from the Outback desert’s burnt red isolation. Cosmopolitan metropolises thrive amidst some of the Earth's most inhospitable land. Earth’s oldest culture endures in one of the world's youngest nations. Travel to Australia reveals that this remarkable continent's size and abundance are its greatest allure and its most confounding challenge. Let us steer you through the beautiful vastness and bewildering contrast that is Australia.

    Bhutan

    The stir of anticipation generated by Bhutan’s opening of its borders to travelers, just over three decades ago, is virtually unmatched. The privileged few who have ventured into the secluded Himalayan kingdom have beheld a wondrous land that is completely isolated from modern and western influences. Through a strict policy of limited tourism, Bhutan has consciously cultivated a fiercely guarded traditional culture and the world's most well-tended natural environment. But the winds of change are stirring as Bhutan evolves. We invite you to seize the day by exploring and experiencing Bhutan at a historic juncture when its land and culture are on the brink of transformation.

    India

    India is one of the world's great civilizations and perhaps its greatest travel destination. An array of cultures and religions has coexisted for ages, each expressing its traditions in magnificent artistic and architectural achievements. Evidence of a sophisticated Indus Valley culture, including streets, irrigation and public works in Punjab and Rajasthan, place India alongside Babylonia as one of the first centers of modern civilization.

    It is the birthplace of both Hinduism and Buddhism, and a long and continuous tradition of achievement in physics, mathematics, astronomy, philosophy and poetry testifies to India's role as a fertile intellectual epicenter for more than 3,000 years.
