What is known from stories written by western travelers like Marco Polo and others was that Asia is full of ancient trails that have beguiled travelers for centuries.
With a history going back many thousands of years, this part of the world holds some of world’s most ancient cities, their once glorious palaces, temples, monasteries, hospitals and theaters intricately carved and modeled out of stone, having laid abandoned and forgotten for centuries amidst the ever encroaching jungles.
It's a world of glistening palms, emerald waters and shadowy jungles, with air perfumed by temple flowers, spices and coconut oil. Forests of teak, eucalyptus, rubber and jak trees give way to fields of rice, tea, pineapples, tobacco and sugarcane. You encounter bare-chested men in multi-hued sarongs, women in flowing tunics all colors of the rainbow, laughing children burnt brown by the sun and bicycles, tuk tuks and bullock carts on the roads.
Monks swathed in robes of saffron and yellow wander peacefully through the countryside and elephants guided by their diminutive mahouts amble majestically along the back roads carrying logs or bundles of sugar cane.
