Why did Lonely Planet create the Best in Asia list?

We believe that travel is a force for good and part of our mission is to highlight destinations and inspire people to discover them.  We annually recommend our Best in Travel destinations, which our in-house experts believe offer travellers the best experiences throughout the world.  However, we also know that residents of the Asian-Pacific region are blessed with close proximity to a wealth of fabulous spots and travel in Asia – so we wanted to highlight our Asian travel experts’ recommendations, and call out those places that are particularly great to visit right now, and over the next 12 months.
