about the area:
The Far East has intrigued people for centuries. Comprised of some forty eight countries, one would be hard pressed to try and visit them all. Asia has everything - from snow, mountains, rain forest, islands, exotic animals, beaches, delicious food and lots and lots of culture to a unique collection of religions and temples.
And make no mistake about it, reaching Asia involves some long and often expensive flights. But depending on where you go, one can have fantastic experiences at ridiculous prices. Street food can satisfy the palate for just a few dollars, accommodation is cheap, and local transportation and even short haul flights both domestic and international can be easily booked with minimal planning and effort.
