A WOMAN'S ASIA:
True Stories

Editor: Marybeth Bond

Asia has an exotic appeal for many Westerners — from its rich and ancient civilization, spirituality, and mysticism, to its high mountain peaks, tropical backwaters, and beautiful Taj Mahal. In this new century especially, women are travelling to Asia in response to a spiritual and emotional draw to the continent. Women are seeking adventure, connection, and a deeper understanding of the world and its inhabitants, and no place offers a more enticing opportunity to find this. From India to China, Japan to Sri Lanka, cultures, cuisines, and adventures form an intoxicating and enlightening web of experiences for women of all ages, interests, and backgrounds.

In this inspiring collection, readers explore the legend of Kuan Yin, the Chinese goddess of compassion; encounter the plight of poor women in rural India; discover their own cultural space through bathing with elephants in India; bridge the chasm dividing West and East through teaching English in Laos; confront their moral choices over dinner in Bangkok; dance with the ghost of Genghis Khan in Mongolia; come of age in Bali; and much more.

In A Woman's Asia you will:

  • Meet the love of your life in Bhutan
  • Dance in Mongolia with a descendant of Ghengis Khan
  • Bathe with elephants in Nepal
  • Return to a personal paradise in Bali
  • Search western China for the perfect yurt
  • Hike, sleep, and dream the Japanese Alps
  • Overcome the People’s Liberation Army in Tibet
  • Meet the Queen of Compassion in Singapore
  • Leave your attachments in the dust of India
  • …and much more.
