Find out more about touring in Asia.

Asia is the largest continent in the world in both, area and population, constituting nearly one-third of the landmass, lying entirely north of the equator except for some Southeast Asian islands. It is connected to Africa by the Isthmus of Suez and borders Europe (part of the same landmass) along the Ural Mountains and across the Caspian Sea.

The continent is divided into contrasting areas, some of which are currently off-limits to travellers. But most are still quite accessible and are your special destination for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Eastern Asia - China, Japan Korea, Mongolia, Tiawan.

Northern Asia - Russian Federation.

South-Central Asia - Afghanistan, Balngladesh, Bhuta, India, Iran, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan.

South East Asia - Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar (Burma), Philippines, Singapore, Thailand , Timor-Leste (East Timor), Vietnam.

Western Asia and Middle East - Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Cyprus, Georgia, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, ,Palestinian territories, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, ,Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Yemen.

Asia offer tourists the chance to explore some of the oldest civilisations in the world. They're also a wonderful journey for the senses. You might see pink sunsets over ancient temples, smell the spices and touch exotic produce in the markets, taste delicious dishes packed with fresh flavours, and hear the calls of exotic animals and birds in mist-shrouded jungles.

There's also an intriguing contrast between the old and the new. China and Japan's cities teem with skyscrapers, yet it's the Terracotta Army, the Great Wall or the pagodas and geishas that intrigue most people most of all.

India has a magical landscape ranging from the Himalayas to the palm-fringed beaches of Kerala, astonishing landmarks including the Taj Mahal, and extraordinary sights such as sacred cows holding up traffic.

The rest of Asia is just as enthralling. Discover the temples of Angkor Wat in Cambodia and Borobodur in Indonesia, sample the hustle and bustle of Bangkok, or meet the gentle orangutans of Borneo and Malaysia. Closer to home, Turkey is known for its beaches but is also home to the Roman ruins of Ephesus and Istanbul's Blue Mosque.
