1. The food is amazing
If you are a self-proclaimed foodie seeking out new culinary adventures in 2019, Asia will definitely become one of your new favorite destinations in the world. There is nowhere else in the world that you will be able to sample such a diverse range of food as on the Asian continent. It does not matter where you choose to go, you will always be met with a delicious array of traditional foods that are bound to blow your mind. If you find yourself in South Korea, Kimchi (salted & fermented pickled vegetables in a chili paste) should be at the top of your list of things to try. The same applies to the tom yum goong (spicy hot & sour soup) in Thailand, and dim sum (dumplings) in Hong Kong. You don’t have to stick to dining in fancy restaurants either as you can grab some delicious grub from one of the countless reputable street food vendors that can be found in all larger cities.
2. It is affordable and accessible
Asia is undoubtedly one of the easiest destinations to get to in the world in 2019. As long as you have all your documentation in order, including your passport and travel insurance, you will be able to enjoy a stress-free entry in the various countries on the continent. Tourism offices are plentiful, providing useful information that will make finding your feet in a foreign country a lot less stressful. Apart from being accessible, Asia as a whole is also very affordable. For as little as $35 a day you can live quite comfortably as long as you don’t splurge on food and drinks.
3. The natural scenery is spectacular
While Asia leads the world as far as digital transformation is concerned, it is also home to some of the most beautiful natural wonders in the entire world. Whether you made a New Year’s resolution that entails you taking a complete break from the hustle and bustle of life in the city, or simply want more balance in your life, visiting Asia this year could give you a whole new perspective of the world. When looking to bask in the sheer splendor of some of Mother Nature’s most remarkable offerings, consider paying a visit to the beaches of Thailand, the summit of Mount Fiji, the Bunaken Marine Park in Indonesia, and Palawan in the Philippines.
4. You can learn a lot from the rich culture
The merging of cultures across Asia is something that needs to be experienced first-hand in order to truly understand it. Apart from making up 60% of the entire world’s population, Asia has also been the birthplace of a number of religions, lifestyles, language, and traditions. If you are looking to get acquainted with some of the most vibrant, diverse, and interesting people in the world you have to add Asia to your travel itinerary this year. For the best cultural experiences, choose destinations such as Angkor Thom in Cambodia, Halong Bay in Vietnam, and Yogyakarta in Indonesia.
