Asian countries like Japan and China offer a more oriental view of the continent. These countries offer colorful scenery and a rich cultural experience.

Do not forget to take a trip to see famous Mount Fuji while in Japan. Visit the mystifying Mount Huangshan in China where mist covers the mountains of Anhui. And a trip to China would not be complete unless you ventured into the Gobi Desert on a camel. What is so important about the trip into this desert? It is the Echoing Sand Mountain and the Crescent Lake that seem quite out of place. It is so out of place that you may think you are seeing a mirage.
