backpacking through asia?

So, why should I visit Asia?

Asia, and South East Asia in particular, is one of the go-to destinations for backpackers - it is arguably the best budget backpacking destination in the world due to cheap food, drink & accommodation, mixed with some truly stunning architecture, scenery and history.

Angkor Wat, in Cambodia, for example, is the largest religious monument in the world and dates back to the 12th century - whilst Chiang Mai is often considered by backpackers to be one of the best budget cities to live in, anywhere in the world. The street food here is fantastic and there are a large number of elephant nature parks & conservations zones within & just outside of the city.

For those with a slightly steeper budget, Japan offers an intoxicating mix of wacky culture & great food - whilst Tokyo is a wonderful mix of the old and the new. Why not watch a bout of Sumo wrestling or visit the famous Shibuya Crossing?
