Number 4. India. Home to one of the world's richest and oldest civilizations, India is awash with different cultures, religions, peoples, and traditions.

It is this diversity that makes it so mesmerizing to explore. While the Himalayas dominate the north, steamy jungle, picturesque tea plantations, and gorgeous beaches can be found in the rest of the country.

Tucked away among these varied landscapes are ancient sites and colorful yet chaotic cities such as Mumbai and New Delhi. From temples to cuisine and history to wildlife, the world's second-most populous country has something for everyone.

The only question is where to begin. Number 3. Japan.

Although it consists of almost 7,000 islands, most of Japan's main sights and tourist attractions can be found on the four largest of them. Lying to the east of mainland Asia, the island nation is a fascinating place as old and new collide wherever you go.

While the futuristic metropolises of Tokyo and Yokohama are full of skyscrapers and neon lights, Kyoto and Nara instead boast traditional palaces and age-old temples. Covered in mountains and forests, the country is also home to some delightful nature and scenery.

This explains why the vast majority of its large population is found in the densely populated cities that hug its long and indented coastline. Number 2. China.

Dominating Asia in terms of both its size and population, China boasts one of the world's oldest civilizations. As such, incredible historical and cultural landmarks are on show wherever you go.

While the Great Wall of China is obviously its main attraction, the Terracotta Army in Xi-an and the Forbidden City in Beijing attract just as many people. Others come to enjoy China's beautiful scenery that includes towering mountains, endless rice terraces, and the desolate Gobi Desert.

The most populous nation on Earth, China is home to many rapidly modernizing cities that are enthralling to visit. A continent of a country, China and its cities, and cultures could take a lifetime to explore.
