I’ve seen awe-inspiring things that I thought I’d never be able to explain to another person. These experiences have helped me to become a better storyteller. I was born and raised in India and I was fortunate enough to travel all over my home country before I started exploring other parts of Asia. Asia is too massive and diverse to conceptualize as a single digestible travel "destination." I am a big foodie and Asia has exported its cuisines the world over: India’s red hot curries, China’s juicy dumplings, Vietnam’s steaming bowls of pho, and Thailand’s heaping plates of pàt tai (pad Thai) are known and loved across the globe. So, all the hungry travellers like me will never be bored by the diversity of Asia’s cuisines. So let me help you explore the diversity of this beautiful continent.
My favourite places
Your memories of India will blaze bright long after you've left its shores due to its sumptuous mix of traditions, spiritual beliefs, festivals, architecture, and landscapes. Delhi holds a special place in my heart as it's my home city. It offers a perfect blend of history and culture. You will love the food in Delhi.
Friendly and food-obsessed, hedonistic and historic, cultured and curious, Thailand tempts visitors with a smile. With a luxuriously long coastline, Krabi is a tropical getaway fit for everyone. You can snorkel the gentle waters off Railay Island and visit the emerald pool in Krabi or take a day trip to Koh Phi Phi.
A land of staggering natural beauty and cultural complexities, of dynamic megacities and hill-tribe villages, Vietnam is exotic and compelling. Vietnamese culture is complex, diverse, and represents something of a history lesson. You will love the pretty little town of Hoi An, filled with beautiful lanterns.
The concrete jungles that once dominated Singapore’s skyline are slowly giving way to green skyscrapers, which look more like living ecosystems than business hubs. Fervently working towards its ‘City in a Garden’ dream, the nation is investing huge amounts of money into becoming more sustainable and, well, green.
Did you know?
- Travel makes you modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world and how much you have to learn.
- In most countries in Asia, you can get a 4-star hotel at the roughly equivalent cost of a 3-star back home.
- Vietnam is best explored on foot, be it the markets of Hoi An or Hanoi or the streets of Ho Chi Minh City.
- Varanasi has a hostel where people come to die. They have two weeks to die or they’re asked to move on.
