Welcome to Asia, kaleidoscope of sights, and sounds, and tastes—hyperdense urban centres, towering skyscrapers, bustling markets, lanterns, cities aglow in the night… the scene diffuses: vast rolling deserts, the Himalayas dressed in snow and rising deep into the sky, pagodas, ornate Buddhist temples, mist-filled valleys, steaming jungles, the world’s first churches and mosques, humanity’s crib carved into stone.
Here most of Earth’s many faces are represented, from a young Japanese vendor selling takoyaki to passersby on an evening-packed Osakan street, to an aged, bearded Afghan shepherd resting with his sheep in a grassy field, surrounded by rolling hills.
Along the Silk Road once passed so many goods and ways of life, and that trade continues now more than ever; bring everything you are to Asia, savor it, and take back with you part of all that it has to offer.
