Project Description

Asia

The Asian continent is home to some of the most spectacular cities in the world, like Kyoto, Toyko, Hong Kong, Seoul, Singapore, Beijing, Bangkok and Siem Reap, Cambodia jus to name a few. These major cities are complemented by vast countryside, making up an appealing combination throughout Asia of secluded and fast-paced environments.
Not only is Asia known for it’s mouth-watering dishes, but it is also known for its many street vendors. Instead of the best food being found in fancy restaurants like you may typically be used to, you can actually find some of the tastiest meals from the carts and stalls lining the streets in many Asian cities. If you are on a mission for street food, some of the top cities where you will find success are Penang, Bangkok, Fukuoka, Hanoi, Singapore, and Seoul, just to name a few.
Asia is home to more temples than any other continent in the world. It is also the place where many of the world’s mainstream religions and beliefs were born. Therefore, a visit to Asia would not be complete without stopping to see at least a few of its majestic temples. Angkor Wat, one of the most famous temples, is the largest religious monument in the world and is located in Cambodia. Balanced on the edge of a 3,000 foot high cliff, the Taktsang Dzong temple is a well-recognized symbol of Bhutan. Finally, the Temple of Heaven dating back to the early 1400s is an impressive site to see and is also surrounded by a large public park, the grounds where many locals will practice tai chi throughout the week. However, these few barely scratch the surface of the incredible architecture, history, and detail that is found in the many temples throughout Asia.
