There are fascinating sites in Asia that have been named UNESCO World Heritage sites.

So far I have visited

The Great Wall,
the Emperor's Palace,
the Summer Palace and
the Temple of Heaven
in Beijing,

the Imperial Tombs of the Ming and Qing Dynasties,
the Terracotta Army in Xi'an,
Huangshan and Mount Lushan
.

If you like to have a look at the official list, please refer to

    Great snap shot of some of the best of Asia. Like the comparison of your personal impression vs Unesco descriptions.

    Haha, the great wall and the forbidden city are the two top dreams about Asia ! I forgot, of course the Terracotta Army in Xi'an
