"The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page"


Travel Asia Mini-Series aims to make your journey to some of the places in the biggest continent a breeze. It covers places including the author's home country, the Philippines, Siem Reap, Bali, and Malaysia. Having a home-based job gave her the luxury to work literally anywhere and it's a realization that we can also take advantage of doing the same.

Whether you're a workaholic or a couch potato, you can easily finish the 48-page book in one sitting. It's filled with description of the places which also includes transportation fares, duration of travel, and extremely handy tips like the one found in page 30 that says if you have a Philippine driver's license then you may use it to legally drive a car in that certain country. For a person like me who has never left the country, it makes me think how much I am missing. They said reading a book will take you places, well, this one truly does as it describes in detail the attractions around Asia. It's almost like you're travelling yourself. It's not only about the beautiful sceneries to see but it also enumerates tons of things to do that gets you excited and encourages you to book that dream Asian destination pronto!

As a person who loves to see pictures in books that I read, I am honestly yearning for more photographs. It's not that it's few but the pics are in black and white and it's totally understandable that it keeps the price of the book affordable. The pics just don't give justice to the the colorful description of the sceneries. On the contrary, it lets your imagination get to work. It makes you think that those tourist spots are better seen personally than watched from a video or seen from a photo of this book.

I used to be a homebody but reading this guide developed a strong, innate desire to travel about. I'd definitely keep it handy once I start my own Asian journey. Get your copy through this link
