Asia Travel Guides

Man, I love Asia! Whether it’s exploring the rice fields of perfect empty beaches of Sri Lanka. Spending months getting lost in Indonesia way beyond Bali or just indulging in the ultimate beach holiday in the Maldives, this places rock.

Some of the friendliest people you will meet and some of the most flavoursome foods you will eat await. Perfect for a one year trip or a short holiday, whatever you are hunting down trust me, Asia rocks.
