We’re back with episode 5 of our series all about how to spend 2 weeks on a continent! This week is all about how to spend 2 weeks in Asia!

If this is your first time listening to this series, Chris and I each come up with 2 separate itineraries (we don’t even tell each other!) on how we feel is the best way to spend 2 weeks on a continent.

Why 2 weeks?

Well, many people, especially US citizens, don’t get much time off from work to spend months and months somewhere new. For many, a 2-week trip somewhere across the globe is a once-in-a-lifetime thing and they want to make the most of it!

So whether you want to use this as a first-timer’s guide to visiting Asia or this is your once-in-a-lifetime trip, we hope you enjoy it, and let us know your thoughts on these itineraries!

From exploring temples and shrines in Japan to walking with elephants in Thailand, you’ll definitely find some incredible things to do in just 2 weeks in Asia!
