Asia Travel Guide
“I remember the moment I first realised I’d been living my whole life in black and white. It was like discovering a colour I never knew existed before. A whole new crayon box full of colours.
That was it for me. From then on, there was no putting the pieces back together. No going home. Things were different now. Asia had ruined me for my old life.”
– Anthony Bourdain

What I Love About Asia
The silent shuffle of saffron robes. The buzz of morning market. The hum of incense and fish sauce. Humidity so thick you can feel it on your skin. Endless dirt roads interrupted by the iridescent pop of a rice paddy in wet season. Sunset beers on the Mekong as the sampans glide by. These are the things I love most about Asia.
If there’s one continent I could happily spend the rest of my life on, it would be Asia. It’s hard to put into words how dear Southeast Asia is to me and how much this part of the world has enriched my life.
My first experience backpacking Southeast Asia on the ‘Banana Pancake Trail’ way back in 2012 turned into a lifelong love affair. Since then, I’ve spent more than 3 years exploring and working in Asia – and I’ve been lucky enough to call Luang Prabang, Phnom Penh, Hanoi and Chiang Mai home at various points.
Still, I’ve barely scratched the surface of this great continent.
From the frenetic streets of Ho Chi Minh City to the solitude of rural Cambodia, Taipei‘s skyscrapers to Malaysia‘s shophouses, from sunrise at Angkor Wat to dusk on Ha Long Bay, there’s simply no place like Asia.
