East Asia

Landmarks · History Museums · Flea Markets
East Asia boasts a fast-growing tourist industry and so many exciting destinations to visit, from arid steppes of Mongolia to south China's lush rice paddies. The historical influence of ancient Chinese culture on the entire region has been often compared to the impact of the Greco-Roman civilization on the Western World. Under this unifying element, you will find many differences in local customs, architecture, and cuisine--the dystopian communist architecture of Pyongyang has little if anything in common with the skyscrapers of the former British colony of Hong Kong or Tokyo's high-tech visions of the future. Deciding where to go on your East Asia vacation can be difficult, but regardless of where you start, you'll have easy access to cultural and natural treasures, World Heritage-listed sites, and mouthwatering culinary treats.
