Asia is the largest continent by both size and population—a diverse, multi-cultural melting pot of some of the oldest civilizations on Earth. There’s so much to see and do in Asia, it’s hard to narrow it down to a shortlist—it could take you months to truly explore just one country. By Black Platinum Gold!
N°1. Mount Fuji, Japan
A place to visit at least once in a lifetime! Mount Fuji is with 3776 meters Japan’s highest mountain.
It is not surprising that the nearly perfectly shaped volcano has been worshiped as a sacred mountain and experienced big popularity among artists and common people throughout the centuries.
Although Mount Fuji is an active stratovolcano, it hasn’t erupted since 1708.
The stunning snowcapped mountain is one of Japan’s “Three Holy Mountains,” which are traditionally considered to hold a particular power—Mount Fuji has volcanic power.
N°2. Phuket, Thailand
Phuket is one of Thailand‘s premier tourist destinations!
Thailand’s biggest island is also a magnet for visitors—and for good reason.
Phuket boasts some of the best beaches in the country, with clean, soft, rolling sands and turquoise waters as far as the eye can see.
N°3. Beijing, China
The beauty and power of China enclosed in a city!
One of the most populous cities in the world, Beijing is also one of the oldest.
You can get a peek into that history by walking the hutongs of Beijing, the narrow alleyways lined up with traditional homes and courtyards.
N°4. Hoi An, Vietnam
The charm of Vietnam!
The ancient city of Hoi An is home to one of Asia’s oldest trading ports and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
A major commercial stop for trading ships as far back as the 15th century, Hoi An still maintains much of its original architecture in the form of timber frame buildings, colorful French-colonial shutters, and Chinese tiled roofs.
N°5. Dead Sea, Israel
We love Israel!
The dark blue waters of the Dead Sea touch the borders of both Jordan and Israel.
Actually a lake despite its name, the Dead Sea sits at the lowest land elevation on Earth—over 430 meters below sea level.
With a salt concentration of around 31 percent—almost 10 times saltier than the ocean —the Dead Sea is so thick, nothing can sink into it, and everyone who walks into it will naturally float.
