    Here are 7 things to see in Asia before you die.

    Number 7 – The Taj Mahal in Agra, India was built in 1648. Its white marble structure dominates the skyline from the river Yamuna. The beautiful floral and geometric designs showcase Mughal and Persian architecture. Precious stones inlaid in the white marble create detailed patterns and intricate calligraphy.

    Number 6 - The Terracotta Army in China consists of over 8,000 strong soldiers, built by men for conquest after death. The enormous force rests in hundreds of ranks, no two soldiers exactly the same. Besides the infantry, the army consists of hundreds of cavalry and chariots.

    Number 5 - Tiger's Nest monastery located in Bhutan is a Buddhist temple with a 1200-year history. The monastery is built around a cave where an ancient guru once meditated. Today, it thrives in the remote mysterious cliff side.

    Number4 – Japan is home to a gorgeous site known as the Bamboo forest. As the name implies, a seemingly never-ending expanse of tall bamboo trees surround picturesque and tranquil walking trails.

    Number 3 - Halong Bay in Vietnam is said to be one of the most beautiful sights on Earth. Locals work in nearby fields while thousands of limestone mountains spread over a landscape unlike any other.

    Number 2 - Angkor Wat in Cambodia is a temple complex built in the 12th century, full of ancient statues and stone structures. There are numerous carvings, statues, and other works of religious art all across Angkor Wat.

    Number 1 – There’s almost too much to see in Bali, Indonesia. Stunning temples amidst inspiring scenery, the ancient art form of Balinese dance, terraced fields and of course the beaches, which are among the best in the world.
