A warm welcome to Asia Travel Gems. On this website, I present the Best Places to Visit in Asia.

Over the years, I have visited many awesome cities in Asia. I have seen the popular attractions and sights each place has to offer, tried and tasted their local food, and stayed at some of the hotels available.

As I do all that, I do my best to update this travel blog, and share my experiences with you. I will also review each place to help you find out if it is worth your time visiting the sights, try the food at an eating place or stay at a particular hotel.

Hong Kong is absolutely awesome! I loved visiting this city, and have plans to visit again and again and again.

If you are flying to this city, and arrive at the Hong Kong International Airport, I highly recommend the Airport Express to get to the city. It is the quickest way to travel from the airport and into Hong Kong.
