Cruising Through the Land of Contradictions post image

So why does Asia seem so irresistible? While it's pretty clear that the most populated continent on Earth sweeps us off our feet, we cannot seem to get enough of the overabundance of reasons on why we cannot stop getting all excited when Asian countries that are packed with breathtaking travel destinations are spoken about. Not only has Asia become a very friendly choice for holidays for people with disabilities, but it appears that the tropical climate of most countries in Asia is just perfect for us who want to relish the liberating feeling of baring our skin; to sweat, and to get subtly baked by the appealing sultriness of the weather. Our interests and curiosity seem to get amplified by the distinct culture that embody each country, which comprise this perfectly-formed continent- two regions may be very much close to each other with regards to proximity, but may have completely dissimilar beliefs and traditions. So fascinating! The hospitality is also a distinguishing characteristic when you visit these jewels. The incredible architectural designs of the quintessential buildings and structures, and the history behind these edifices, make our Asian experience ultimately memorable. The natural attractions that are splattered everywhere are too bewitching to be ignored. The surfeit of the lush foliage, the unsullied greenery and the handsome charm of the beaches are sure to please. It’s true, Asia is a land of contrasts.


Are you all prepped up to have a taste of exotic Asia? Might as well do it in the most relaxing and pampering fashion! Cruise your way to the largest continent in the world and set yourself for the rich culture and the sumptuousness of the natural beauty that Asia evokes. See these Asian cruising packages from ClubMates Cruising for whatever length of cruising that will make you the happiest!
