When thinking of where to go on a backpacking adventure, many minds wander to Asia. Asia is one of the places in the world that opens the eyes of those who travel there, and allows you to find yourself through experiencing a whole new culture. Travelling through Asia is truly a trip like no other.
Asia is a very vast continent, meaning that there are many terrains and cultures to explore when you are there. If you are interested in visiting several locations when you are in Asia, like so many people are, then you may want to consider what types of things you intend doing in order to plan your trip better.
Travelling to Hong Kong from the UK is one of the quickest ways to get to Asia, so a lot of travellers find themselves here in the first instance. This is a great kick-off point for travellers, as it is very well connected to very popular areas of Asia, such as, mainland China and the Philippines. Some of the other more popular areas to travel in Asia are Thailand and Cambodia. In these areas you can enjoy tropical white sand beaches, ancient temples and explore the jungle, all while enjoying delicious food and vibrant nightlife. These destinations are all great for solo travellers looking to meet new people and make lasting friendships.
That’s just the tip of the iceberg! There are so many experiences to be had in Asia. No matter what countries you intend to visit on your backpacking adventure, it is important that you take out travel insurance to protect yourself against many unforeseen eventualities.
