A vast, diverse continent, Asia can be a daunting and sometimes overwhelming place to visit. With some of the most breathtaking wilderness and buzzing metropolises, you never know what adventures and scenarios you may find yourself in. Make sure you protect yourself with our travel insurance to Asia.
Asia, it's the world biggest continent by size and population with more cities inside Asia than outside of it. With 60% of the world's population, a whopping 4.3 billion people call this continent home.
The borders of Asia have never really been clearly defined and are seen to be culturally determined rather than physically. However the common consensus is the boundaries to the east of the Suez Canal, the Ural River, and the Ural Mountains, and south of the Caucasus Mountains and the Caspian and Black Seas.
Asia is home to the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest which sits at the border of Tibet and Nepal. Many people travel to Asia to make the Everest trek to one of the two base camps. Whether this is the reason you are heading there or for other purposes, you should always protect yourself with a travel insurance policy.
There are loads of options when it comes to travelling around Asia. Popular places include Bangkok, Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore which are all fast-paced, bustling and modern destinations.
Thailand is also popular, for various reasons like its stunning beaches, nightlife (think the infamous full moon parties in Koh Pha Ngan) and contrasting ancient culture. Or maybe you want to immerse yourself in a whole new way of life in countries like India, China and Cambodia.
Don't just assume you need an Asia policy for this region. You may need an Asia policy or a Worldwide policy depending on the countries you are visiting. We highly recommend you take out a full comprehensive travel insurance policy to protect you for overseas emergency medical and hospital, cover your personal effects and any activities you might look to participate in whilst you visit Asia.
