What are the main Asia airport hubs?
Most of Asia is straightforward to travel around, especially the more visited areas, so if you want a bit of an adventure you could consider arriving into one hub, like Chennai, and departing from another, like Kyoto, and use land transport and short haul flights to do the bits in between.

Asian universities and campuses
Although most American students tend to look across the pond to Europe or even at Australia when it comes to finding places to study abroad, Asia has some great options which are worth considering. Popular universities for American exchange students include Peking University and Tsinghua University in China, and Seoul National University in South Korea.
Asian lifestyle and culture
When it comes to culture, Asia is quite different from the USA and American students and young people should keep that in mind while planning and researching their visits. The cities tend to be a bit more frantic and less orderly than those in the US, though there are always exceptions to the rule (for example, Tokyo is a bit more predictable than, say, New Delhi).
Most countries in Asia take a relaxed approach to alcohol, and the age of consumption is quite as strictly enforced as in the US, though it’s not uncommon for there to be zero tolerance to drugs, so we’d strongly advise you not to take any risks.
Exploring Asia on a student budget
Asia caters for a wide range of budgets, and depending on what part of it you’re in, you can either do things at a fraction of the cost you’d pay in the US, or for a bit more. Japan and Hong Kong are notably a bit more expensive than many Western countries, but places like India and Nepal are vastly cheaper.
