Asia, the ancient land of incense, tea and silk, is a place with diverse and opulent treasures. From imperial Beijing to modern Shanghai to the imposing Yangtze River, China is a study in startling contrasts and contradictions. In Indo-China, the secretive jungles of Vietnam vie with the brilliant beaches of Bali and the Hill Tribes of Thailand’s Golden Triangle. Japan’s vibrant cities encircle the serene imperial gardens of its past. Angkor Wat, Borobudur, Prambanan and Bagan all compete for the Oscar of temple complexes. All this and more awaits when you travel with Destinations & Adventures.
