Of all the countries I’ve visited, those in Asia are the ones that keep drawing me back more than any other.

From the beautiful beaches of Thailand and Vietnam to the jungles and historic ruins of Cambodia, the bustling cities and towering mountains of Nepal to the tea plantations of Sri Lanka, there’d be so many reasons to visit even if the food was terrible.

Hint: the food is not terrible. I could live exclusively on the incredible street food in most of these countries for months at a time, and that’s without even setting foot inside any of the exceptional restaurants.

Throw in fascinating cultures, huge diversity, and low travel costs across much of the continent, and it’s no wonder that Asia continues to draw travelers by the millions.
