Asia is home to the majority of humanity, lively cities, sublime landscapes and almost endless options. Asia varies from the mega-cities and technology capitals of East Asia to the magnificent monuments in South Asia, and from the beach bungalows and jungle treks of Southeast Asia to the desert ruins and modern mega-malls of the Middle East.
