Three Great Asian Destinations Out of Tokyo
For those who have caught the travel bug, they understand how hard it can be to settle for just one travel destination. Every region has so much to offer, boasting original art, culture, cuisine, architecture and excitement. Those who love to travel seek the feeling of both nostalgia and diving into the unknown. When exploring a region as large as Asia, you’re sure to encounter both while gaining appreciation for regional customs and finding exhilaration in the uniqueness of each country. Nonstop flights to Tokyo out of PDX allow travelers to make their long journey to Asia as simple, quick and convenient as possible with only one connection. The city of Tokyo is a gateway to both the familiar and unaccustomed areas of Asia.
Seoul: Tokyo and Seoul are comparable to the sister cities of Seattle and Portland. Neighboring Korea boasts many of the same tastes and activities as Japan, while adding a unique perspective with cultural elements all its own. Seoul is one of the top 10 global cities in the world and boasts an impressive, modern metropolitan infrastructure.
Bangkok: The sights and smells of Bangkok are almost incomparable to other areas of Asia. The city’s night and weekend markets are known internationally and are worth the trip to Bangkok on their own. All five senses experience a journey of a lifetime in Thailand’s most lively city.
Hong Kong: The architecture of this metropolis and global financial center will awe you just as Tokyo will. The culture of Hong Kong is a very distinct mix of Chinese traditions and British influences, and is often described as a place where the East meets West. As a leader in technology and innovation, Hong Kong stands as a powerful international influence as well as a fascinating travel destination.
