There’s never a bad time to visit Asia. The region boasts some of the world’s best beaches, lush jungles, beautiful temples, and bustling markets. No matter what the weather is like, there’s always something to see and do!

The only thing you might want to keep in mind when planning a trip to Asia is the monsoon season. It varies from country-to-country, so it’s easy to pick a destination where the rain has yet to hit. Do some research before booking your trip!

Asia is comprised of 48 countries, so it can be hard to narrow down where to begin your visit. It also contains the two most populated countries in the world, China and India!

While it would take years to truly explore every corner of this continent, most travelers begin in Southeast Asia (like me!). Backpacking is the most popular way to travel through the countries of Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Indonesia (hello, Bali!). While these countries attract a large backpacking crowd, there are luxury gems at every corner too.

Bigger cities like Tokyo, Shanghai, and Hong Kong attract travelers from all over the world. And of course, I can’t forget THE FOOD! With so much variety in cuisine, you will have lasting memories of the food, We promise.

That being said, if you’re on a budget, you’ll probably want to follow the monsoon. With most travelers preferring the dry season, you’ll have better luck finding cheap flights and hotel rooms.
