Burma, or Myanmar as it is now called, has to be the ultimate culture fix in Asia, with myriad temples, the world’s biggest book and spectacular colonial history. It is a nation that has only recently started to welcome visitors and you step back in time from the moment you touch down. Then there is Sri Lanka, which offers spectacular legacies of ancient kingdoms, such as the majestic Sigiriya Rock, that will simply astonish you. The island’s Cultural Triangle alone is enough to keep you beguiled for weeks on end.
Perhaps you’d like to explore the street food and history of Georgetown in exotic Penang in Malaysia. Or the royal palaces of Bangkok, beautiful crafted and adorned with gold and semi precious stones.
Maybe you’d like to explore India’s stunning Hindu and Jain temples, intricately carved from stone and marble. The exceptional palaces and forts here have centuries of history and the ancient stepwells have provided a way of life for generations. And let’s not forget the Taj Mahal, one of the seven wonders of the modern world and a glorious monument to enduring love.
