Hilton heads on Asian tour after court appearance

Paris Hilton is heading to Asia after escaping jail.

The socialite has been planning a business tour of the Far East for six months and is now able to fly out after receiving a year’s probation order for cocaine possession.

Paris - who admitted two offences, drug possession and obstructing an officer, in court yesterday in relation to her August arrest in Las Vegas when the illegal drug was found in her handbag – will touch down in Tokyo, Japan, on Wednesday before she heads to Jakarta, Indonesia, on Friday.

While in Jakarta, the 29-year-old blonde will open a Paris Hilton shop and then conclude her trip in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Paris – who refused to cancel the work commitment in the wake of her court appearance - will also be unveiling her 2010 fall/winter collection of handbags, watches and her new perfume Tease.

As well as receiving the probation order – which will result in Paris being jailed for a year if she breaks the terms – the star must also complete a substance-abuse program, pay a $2,000 fine and complete 200 hours of community service.

Once she returns from Asia Paris will contact authorities to organise her community service and counselling.
