In pictures: Asia’s picturesque fields and terraces

February 6, 2013 - Jo Lane

THE beautiful agricultural fields and terraces of Asia are amongst the most beautiful images most people take when traveling around.

These images are of locations as varied as Burma, India, Indonesia and Malaysia. Each indicates something about the economic makeup of the area, the geography and the amount of work locals, and the generations before them, have poured into the land.
