Temples, amazing food, diversity around every corner. Asia is the continent I’ve spent the most time in and its still so dear to my heart.
There’s nowhere in the world quite like Asia.
From developing countries, to expat metropolises, this continent is full of surprises.
Asia is where I’ve spent the majority of my time, with the exception of my home country, Australia.
I’ve lived in Manila, The Philippines. I’ve worked in Japan, Vietnam and Singapore. I’ve toured through Cambodia.
I lay by the pool in Bali and made my way out to the monkey forests of Ubud, too.
I’ve eaten street food in Delhi, Hanoi, Hong Kong and Penang.
I attended a friend’s wedding in Malaysia.
I sang for customers in a bar in Chitwan National Park, Nepal.
I lived it up for a few days in the United Arab Emirates and then headed over to Jordan to explore the wonders of Petra and Wadi Rum.
I’ve sunbaked on the beaches of Koh Samui, Boracay, Bali and Goa.
I’ve seen the sunrise over Angkor Wat.
I visited Turkey, where Asia meets Europe.
So, it’s pretty evident that Asia has formed a huge part of my travel experience since the travel bug bit a while ago. There’s a lot more to cover and a lot of places that I’m hankering to get back to on this continent.
