You’re probably here because you saw my Instagram post. If not, let me refresh your memory.
By now you know how travel obsessed I am. I haven’t traveled internationally yet but my bucket list grows daily. Now, you must be saying how can you be travel obsessed if you’ve never traveled internationally? Well folks, I’m here to tell you where you go in this world doesn’t matter its all about the experience and feeling it gives you while you’re out there. And when I went to Alaska I felt all the feels. Breathing the air of a new place is the most refreshing thing out there.
I want to feel that way for the rest of my life. I mean, who wouldn’t? In honor of that let’s take a quick trip to the largest continent on this planet- Asia. This continent is home to the only two countries with over a billion people- China and India. But with that, there are also parts of Asia that are uninhabitable like the Gobi Desert. Oh, it’s also home to the largest mountain on earth, Mount Everest. There are hundreds of languages spoken so good luck trying to communicate (just kidding). And what most people don’t know is that the United Arab Emirates is also a part of Asia. Now that we’ve had a brief lesson let’s dive in!
Walk The Great Wall
This UNESCO World Heritage Site stretches over 13,000 miles and has for over 2,000 years.
Watch the sunset in Guilin
I can’t think of a more picturesque place to watch the sunset. Guilin is also home to Elephant Trunk Hill and Reed Flute Cave.
Walk around the Longji Rice Terraces
Did you know “longji” means dragon? That’s how these rice terraces got their name, because they look like dragon scales.
Hold a baby Panda in Chengdu
Because you can’t go to Asia and not do this
This is the first Buddhist temple built in China in the 1st century CE.
Another UNESCO World Heritage Site. Having been obsessed with archaeology my entire life this bucket list wouldn’t be complete without Angkor Wat. Located in Cambodia, this location is home to ancient temples, monuments, canals and reservoirs. Truly a cultural experience.
Just outside Kyoto, Japan you’ll find these bamboo groves. Also is Arashiyama you’ll find a number of temples, Monkey Park and the Saga Scenic Railway.
See the Taj Mahal without any tourists and attend the Holi Festival in India
Play with the elephants in Thailand
Elephants are my favorite animal so I couldn’t go to Asia without seeing these gentle giants.
Everything about this place leaves me speechless.
Where the views of Hong Kong are unlike any other.
For obvious reasons. Have you seen that water?
Dune buggy the deserts and shop the outdoor markets in Doha, Qatar
Ride a camel and have a picnic in the deserts of Abu Dhabi
