Conde Nast’s “Grand Tour of Asia”

8 Apr

Conde Nast Traveler features “The Grand Tour of Asia,” that covers 12 countries in 45 days by one of its editors. It’s luxury travel, done mainly by taking planes (my favored form of transport, I should say) and going on tours accompanied by archaeologists so the budget is probably well out of the range for most of us (including myself), but the itinerary is quite cool. China is there, of course, as are India, Japan, and Thailand, but smaller countries like Vietnam, Nepal, and even Bhutan are covered too. The China leg includes Beijing, Xian, and Shanghai, which is fine if you want to cover the main cities, but still lacking in terms of really grasping China’s attractions and beauty.
