Asia’s massive scale also means there are many tiny corners that can fly under the traveler’s radar. Many of these places are little gems that can get overlooked in big countries like China or India. It takes some effort to seek such places out, but they usually end up being the most memorable of my travel experiences.
It may seem hard to believe that such places can still exist in the 21st century, but they do. While it’s true that the ‘digital age’ has brought the cell phone to just about every corner of the planet, it hasn’t homogenized culture or vaporized local traditions.
At the bottom of the page I’ve included links to specific country galleries. Not all are complete yet, so please check back often for updates.
