Travel With a Difference – Wonderful Ways to Explore Asia

Travel is chicken soup for the soul!

I love to make the most of travel opportunities because they are so readily available these days, plus it’s just so good jetting off somewhere new and exploring other corners of the globe. We can learn so much from other cultures and nations and really develop as humans.

That’s why I would highly recommend taking at least one long trip per year if you possibly can.

One of the greatest places in the world to visit is Asia. It’s a huge continent, full of magical, mystical countries, and a sprawling history. If you’ve never been, you need to make Asia one of the first places you go to as a traveler. There is so much you can do here that will really help you get the full Asian experience, but with a twist. These are just a few of the ideas I would suggest.

Climb Mount Everest

How would you like to pit your wits against the highest mountain peak in the world?! Very few people out there have scaled Everest, and this is something you might like to do. The mountain is situated in Nepal, and you will need to train before undertaking the treacherous trek. If you don’t feel as though you want to brave the mountain that has claimed many lives, you might instead try Everest Base Camp. This is a much less dangerous, but still grueling undertaking. And it is a monumental achievement in its own right. Just make sure that if you are planning anything for Everest, that you do your research beforehand. There’s nothing worse than going into something like this unprepared. Look into what’s involved before you get started, and do as much as you can to enjoy this once in a lifetime experience.

Volunteer in Thailand

It’s not only mountain ranges that are on offer in Asia. You might also decide you’d like to help out and make a difference in some countries as well. For instance, you could opt to do a program where you volunteer in Thailand. This will allow you to work with elementary schools, and help the kids there. Thailand is such a beautiful and magical location and there is so much on offer there. If you really want to make the most of your travel experience, Thailand is a definite must-visit for you. And that’s why you need to make sure you really take the time to immerse yourself in the culture and do what you can to help make a difference.

The Ganges River Cruise

How great would it be to be able to enjoy Asia with the opulence of a river cruise?! You’ll be able to make the most of a visit to India by enjoying a river cruise on the Ganges. This will show you the sights and sounds of one of the most beautiful and burgeoning nations in the world. Make sure you do a bit of research before you start because you will need to look into the costs involved. The idea is to get the best possible deal you can; there are a lot of sites that will offer cruises along the Ganges. It’s simply a case of finding the right sort of cruise for you. This of course will depend on whether you’re vacationing with the kids, going solo, or traveling with friends. You have to make sure you choose the right river cruise to suit the needs of the people you are traveling with.

Traveling to Asia presents so much excitement and adventure…

It’s the continent many people look forward to visiting the most. The food is exquisite, the people are warm and friendly and there is so much history to enjoy.

These are just a few of my ideas for great things you can do when you visit Asia.
