Looking down from the Buddhist temples perching high up in the hills of Bhutan, you truly are looking at life tucked away from the modern world. This tiny kingdom, known as the Land of the Thunder Dragon, is set high up in the Himalayas and is proudly independent. Having never been colonised, its identity is sure-footed, and founded in Buddhist benevolence. This is, after all, the country that pioneered the idea of Gross National Happiness as a way of assessing the collective wellbeing of its population.
Asia’s vast swathes of perfect white beach against cobalt waters are hard to beat, for utter relaxation and retreat from the daily grind, in the most peaceful of environs. Plump for Thailand’s Koh Samui for island community and spectacular beaches. The island of Bali offers the warmest of welcomes; pure hospitality and colourful culture. If you’d like to combine your beach relaxation with both amazing wildlife and delicious cuisine, alternatively, Malaysia is a sure-fire hit.
This continent truly covers the broadest spectrum of experiences. Man-made history comes in the form of temples, palaces and monuments from across the centuries, alongside the most bustling, modern and high-tech cities. The continent is scattered with places of religious contemplation for many faiths, including the Buddhist monasteries of Bhutan, the Hindu (and then Buddhist) temples of Cambodia, such as Prasat Preah Vihear, Koh Ker or Angkor Wat, the ultimate architecture of heartbreaking love and loss which is the mausoleum of the Taj Mahal, or cruise along the Ganges taking in Varanasi, Hinduism’s direct link between earthly life and the life beyond. Singapore and Hong Kong, meanwhile, are known for being at the cutting edge; cities with both amazing history and a fantastic modern buzz on offer as buildings climb ever skyward and the city throbs and hums with life.
