There is so much of interest in Asia--kaiseki meals--the ultimate in Japanese food in country ryokan, the Xian Warriors in China, the bustle of Vietnam, the amazing temples of Angor Wat in Cambodia, an exciting river cruise down the Yangtze in Laos ending at unspoiled Luangprabang, or a luxury sail along the Irrawaddy in Myanmar, taking in the hundreds of temples at Pagan.

The holy site of Varanasi and the Taj in Rajasthan, antiquing in Kerala in the south of India, elephant training and riding in north Thailand, the temple of Borobudur in Java, white tiger stalking on elephant back in Bandhavgarh National Park, luxury tented camping in Jaipur,  the stunning palace hotel at DeviGarh, the colorful chaos of the annual Pushkar camel fair, and the breathtaking Himalayas in Nepal--we've had so many wonderful experiences in Asia that we can share with you.
