    Yokohama, Tokyo, Japan
Yokohama and Edo began life as sleepy fishing villages. That changed in the early 17th century after Tokugawa Ieyasu became Shogun. Edo became the centre of political power in Japan, a position the city retained even after the restoration of Imperial rule in 1866. Contemporary Tokyo may be the most astonishing city on earth. It's a paradoxical mix of ancient tradition and postmodern culture. The Ginza - an international shopping mecca - stands near the serene grounds of the Imperial Palace, and the hyper-speed of 21st century consumerism is mysteriously reconciled with the elegance and serenity of traditional culture. Tokyo provides the traveller with a dizzying experience.

  12:00am Kobe, Japan
There is a two-story traditional German house built with a dash of art nouveau that overlooks the city of Kobe. You'd think the house out of place, except that the street it's on, Kitano, is full of such oddities. The architecture is a reflection of Kobe's internationalism. It was one of five cities opened to the West once Japan ended it's policy of seclusion. It's been a gateway to the country ever since.

  12:00am Nagasaki, Japan
For most travellers, Nagasaki is a symbol of the horrors of war. But this beautiful city on Kyushu offers timeless charm as well. Often described as the San Francisco of Japan, the city occupies verdant hills surrounded by a deep-water bay. The city is also celebrated as the setting for Puccini's opera "Madame Butterfly." In 1945, an estimated 75,000 people perished when the city became the second target of a nuclear attack. Today, Nagasaki's Peace Park and Atomic Bomb Museum draw visitors from around the world.

  12:00am Baoshan, China
Shanghai is one of the most fascinating cities on the face of the Earth, home to over 13 million people. The streets are packed with people, cars and bicycles, weaving an extraordinary tapestry of humanity. Yet, serenity can always be found, be it a class practising Tai Chi in a park or the peaceful repose of the city's fabled jade Buddha.

  12:00am Okinawa, Japan
Located halfway between Tokyo and Taiwan, Okinawa is the largest island in the Ryukyu Archipelago, one of a group of 100-plus islands tied together by sea routes. Okinawa's strategic location has long made it a centre for trade and conflict. In its history, the island has been an independent kingdom and tributary state of China, the feudal possession of a Japanese daimyo, a prefecture of Japan after the Meiji Restoration, a U.S. military possession, and, since 1972, an integral part of Japan once more.

  12:00am Keelung, Taiwan
There are two facets to today's Taipei - the modern, international east side with its up-scale malls, chic boutiques and trendy restaurants, and the west, bastion of traditional life, its narrow lanes lined with vendors' stalls. Monuments to the past honour Sun Yat Sen and Chiang Kai Shek. A monument to the future is Taipei 101, the International Financial Centre, one of the tallest buildings in the world. Not to be missed is the National Palace Museum, a treasure trove of breathtaking Chinese art and artefacts. And don't forget to eat, restaurants are plentiful and offer every type of regional Chinese cuisine.

  12:00am Hong Kong, Hong Kong
Skyscrapers form a glistening forest of steel and glass, junks and sampans ply the busy harbour waters, and the green, dragon-crested hills of Kowloon beckon. This is Hong Kong. Now a semi-autonomous region of China, Hong Kong has lost none of its excitement or exoticism. Explore the narrow streets crammed with vendors. In the duty-free capital of the world, the endless array of shops offer the visitor everything from hand-tailored suits and antique Chinese porcelain to the latest electronics.
