All about Asia: A comprehensive guide

Our first ever visit to the Asian continent began in December 2022 with a week in Japan, before going to Thailand for Christmas. We did not expect to spend a year in Asia, but we loved our experience so much that we ended up visiting 12 countries throughout 2023! We used Chiang Mai as a base to explore most of the south-east, the likes of Cambodia, Vietnam and Indonesia, before spending the later part of the year checking out the more central and northern areas, with Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, South Korea and even China making our list. It was perhaps quite apt that we finished the year back in Japan, before we heading back home for Christmas. It was an epic year, which also included several stays in one of our favorite countries, the Philippines, and even 3 weeks in India!
