Experience the captivating beauty and diversity of Asia with one of many Lufthansa flights to the region. From the highlands of Iran to the Japanese islands, from Siberia in the North to the islands of Indonesia beyond the equator spans the biggest continent on earth.
Enjoy the sun in southern Asia
Head to Thailand, Asia’s number one travel destination, to enjoy fine dining amid the hustle and bustle of sprawling Bangkok (BKK) and visit unique attractions like the Grand Palace. For some fun in the sun, head south to the world-famous beach resorts of Krabbe and Phuket, where the vibrant wildlife (and nightlife) guarantees a vacation experience in a class of its own. To the north you can see the remnants of the ancient palaces of the Khmer in Cambodia, with the famous Angkor Wat, the largest religious monument in the world, at its centre. The vast sub-continent India is already a diverse experience, from the Himalaya Mountains ranges in the north to the beaches of Goa and the jungles of central India. In south-eastern Asia you’ll find Bali (DPS), whose forested volcanic mountains, beaches and coral reefs are an explorer’s dream. Historically, Indonesia’s capital, Jakarta (JKT) has been a melting pot of Javanese, Malay, Chinese, Indian and European cultures, which can be seen in its unique architecture, language and cuisine. As a vivid contrast to the natural beauties of Indonesia see the luxury shopping malls, hotels and restaurants of the island city-state of Singapore (SIN).
Endless steppes and Hi-Tech towns
In the east of the continent you’ll find the ‘pearl of the orient’, the former British colony of Hong Kong (HKG), whose stunning skyscrapers, action-packed theme parks and vibrant street markets will take your breath away. For the more adventurous, the mega-cities of south-east China provide a gateway to the vast Chinese mainland, with beautiful landscapes like the Yangtze River valley or the bamboo forests in the Jiangsu province. To the North is not only the great Chinese Wall, but beyond that are the rich plains of central Asia, stretching from Mongolia in the southeast to the Caucasus Mountains in the west and the Siberian tundra in the north. Historic Silk Road stops like the beautiful Samarkand (SKD) in Uzbekistan are well worth a visit. On the far edge of Asia the island nation of Japan awaits you with its unique cultural mix of high-tech and centuries-old traditions. Tokyo (NRT) is famous for traditional sights like the Emperors Palace or the Meiji Shrine. But it is also famous for the crazy Japanese Pop Culture with whole parts of the city like Akihabara dedicated to manga, anime, cosplay and maid cafes. A shopping trip to Shibuya and a party night in Roppongi are highly recommended. See the cherry blossom festivals, Hanami, in southern Okinawa (OKA) or visit the old city Kyoto (UKY) with its many historical sights, temples, shrines and castles. Book your flight to Asia with Lufthansa and experience the great continent with all senses.
