Asia is the largest continent on Planet Earth, both in terms of population and landmass. The continent is comprised of five major geographic regions: South Asia, Southeast Asia, Southwest Asia, East Asia, and Russian Asia. The continent hosts forty-eight sovereign nations, and more than three-fifths of the world’s population. Guests of Asian vacation rentals, however, may be more interested in the legendary and plentiful natural beauty of the continent. From the snow-capped and forbidding peaks of the Himalayas to the bustling markets of Shanghai, there are many ways to spend your vacation. The natural environment of the continent contains practically every climate zone known to humankind. Your vacation could be spent in a rental near the legendary tropical resorts of Thailand, or in a villa nestled away in the Mongolian steppe. Although the scenery is undeniably stunning and varied, Asia has much more to offer, from delectable local cuisine to the ancient ruins of Angkor Wat.
South Asia, also commonly referred to as the Indian subcontinent, has a population of more than one and a half billion people. This region is home to several of the tallest mountains on the planet, including the famed Mount Everest. Vacation rental guests can also look forward to experiencing firsthand the subtleties of the Islamic, Buddhist, and Hindu cultures that all flourish in the region. One of the most popular attractions of the region is the Taj Mahal, an ancient and visually stunning royal tomb.
Southeast Asia includes the countries between the Philippines and the nation of Myanmar (formerly Burma). Vacation rental guests in this area can look forward to exploring the majestic Mekong river, searching for peacocks, discovering tropical rainforests, and sampling a perennial favorite of culinary experts, Thai cooking.
Visitors to Southwest Asia, which is somewhat synonymous to the Middle East, can look forward to encountering the “cradle of civilization”, and its accompanying architectural triumphs. Guests of Asia vacation rentals should also take the opportunity to enjoy the rugged beauty of the mountainous regions of Afghanistan, and the diverse cultural experiences of the Middle East.
East Asia provides a unique experience for visitors because it includes two of the most famous and historically rich cultures in the world. Guests of vacation rentals will have the opportunity to learn more about the nations of China and Japan, whether though exploring the history of the legendary samurai or surveying the site of the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. There also are significant natural attractions, ranging from the Yangtze river to snow-capped Mount Fuji.
Russian Asia, as the name suggests, is the part of Russia that lies east of the Ural Mountains. This region is ideal for guests of vacation rentals who enjoy exploring wide open spaces, learning more about the largest nation in the world, and immersing themselves in the culture of Russia.
