Asia is the very essence of the exotic, an assault on the senses like nowhere else on Earth. From the iridescent marble of the Taj Mahal to the eye-watering neon lights of Hong Kong, you’ll find the sublime to the ridiculous in equal measure: the highest mountain, the deepest ocean, the most beautiful beaches and the most dazzling of ruins – if there’s one thing Asia doesn’t do, it is the ordinary.
Luxury holidays to Asia can take you from the futuristic towers of Singapore and Kuala Lumpur to the impenetrable jungle of Borneo, where orang-utans swing through the trees. In Thailand, the ‘land of a thousand smiles’ you’ll discover sizzling cities and paradisiacal beach resorts, sewn up with the gilded temples that hold it all together. If it’s a different kind of paradise you’re after, consider Bali, with its damp rice paddies, fascinating culture and wildly beautiful beaches. Whether you choose to embark on a tour of India’s glorious monuments or the burgeoning culinary scenes of its capitals, Asia never fails to impress.
