Jongmyo, Citadel of the Ho Dynasty, the ancient walled city of Pingyao, Dambulla cave temple, the Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor – the heritage and culture of Asia runs deep. It’s tribal. It’s historic. It’s religious. It’s unique. To make one’s way through and to understand the UNESCO heritage sites of Asia would take a lifetime.

Natural and intangible, UNESCO can be used as a guide to find the best places in the whole of the continent; no matter where a traveler finds themselves, they’re never far from world-renowned history and natural beauty.

Some heritage sites can be as small as a building tucked away in a modern metropolis, others such as the Great Wall stretch across a nation. Remote Lands knows how to find the UNESCO sites you want to see.
