Plan an Exotic Getaway in a Far-flung Destination

Draped along or near the western Pacific Ocean, the Asia Pacific region encompasses parts of East Asia, Southeast Asia, South Asia and Oceania. Visitors to the region will find a remarkable variety of destinations to traverse. Asia Pacific's many jewels include the colorful Indian subcontinent and the palm-tree-strewn beaches of the Philippines, Fiji and Thailand, as well as the hawker food stalls of Malaysia and epic Angkor Wat ruins of Cambodia.
