More than half the world’s population lives in Asia. And when travelling in the big urban areas of Asia, that is exactly the feeling you get: there are people everywhere. These people, their monuments, their culture, and their habits are exactly the reason to come to Asia over and over again. Of course it is a huge area with a great variety of cultures that is covered by the term "Asia." As a region, the South Pacific is filled with outstanding attractions. But each of the countries that make up Asia has its own special and individual allure. These enchanting islands and beautiful people have for hundreds and thousands of years stirred the mind and excited the imagination.
