It is home to the world’s largest city, Tokyo which is home to at least 8 million people.  Here you can experience the many sushi restaurants on offer, take one of the many tours for sightseeing around the city or visit one of the markets to experience true, authentic Japan.  If city life isn’t for you, there are many more places to visit an alternative side of the country – you can head to the mountains and experience life off the beaten track.

If you want to experience the simple life whilst having surroundings you’ve only ever dreamed of, then Thailand is a must visit country.  It is one of Asia’s most visited countries, with sixteen million tourists visiting each year.  Bangkok is a very popular destination and is brimming with history and culture, you’ll find temples, canal side markets and the Grand Palace.  However, if you are looking for a sea/relaxing holiday then Ko Samui is where you need to be.  It’s idyllic white sandy beaches and the sheer variety of accommodation on offer attract visitors time and time again.

India is often described as a continent in its own right.  Stretching from the frozen summits of the Himalayas to the tropical greenery of Kerala, it encompasses a range of landscapes, cultures and people.  One of the main reasons people choose to visit India is to see the great Taj Mahal in Agra.  The vibrancy of this city is not to be missed, the many spice markets in Mumbai have to be seen to be believed and the sheer number of people here will have you amazed.

If you have your heart set on visiting one of the ‘Wonders of the World’ then The Great Wall in China needs to be seen.
