Asia is a massive continent comprising 48 countries of wild diversity. I’ve only visited a handful of these in the South and South East but have immensely enjoyed each one, the way of life here never ceases to amaze.
As a New Zealander Asia is a great destination for a number of reasons. It is easily and relatively cheaply accessible with a number of budget airlines (AirAsia, Jetstar, China Southern) offering flights across the region from hubs such as Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, and Hong Kong. South and South East Asia is also a very affordable region to travel in, with a wealth of backpacker style accommodation and cheap, delicious food in abundance.
