Asia, the largest and the most voluminous Continent, is enclosed by seas and oceans, and strewn with cities, rainforests and diverse landscapes that include Earth’s highest point — Mount Everest — and its lowest, the Dead Sea.
After dispatching its Asia-focused writers to trek through the continent’s natural and urban jungles, Lonely Planet has compiled its first ever list of Asia’s top 10 places to visit in the coming year.
“The result is a varied hit list of classic destinations offering a fresh twist for travelers, regions packed full of action and edge-of-the-map places you may never [have] heard of,” says Lonely Planet’s Asia-Pacific spokesperson Chris Zeiher.
Here’s the list :
1: Hokkaido, Japan
2. Shanghai, China
3. Jeonju, South Korea
4. Con Dao Islands, Vietnam
5. Hong Kong, China
