Asia is recently proving itself to being home to some of the best theme parks in the world. Here are my five top picks for you to visit…

They include the World Bazaar; which is a shopping arcade lined by shops and restaurants, Western Land, Adventure Land, Classic Land and Tommorow Land.
There are also two mini-lands: Critter Country, based on the Disney film Song of the South, and Mickey’s Toon Town, which is a neighborhood where cartoon characters work, play and live.
