With its mouth-watering exotic dishes, vivid cultures, gorgeous beaches and lush jungles, there’s no question why Southeast Asia is the dream destination of many. If you’re planning for a tour in the region, here are three of the most amazing places that should top your list.
From hiking the 4,000-metres high Mount Kinabalu to exploring the depths of Sarawak Chamber, the world’s largest cave chamber, Malaysia offers every explorer an abundance of activities to satisfy your craving for adventure.
Head to the islands of Langkawi for a weekend you will never forget at the most popular archipelago in the Andaman Sea. With its diverse landscape of towering mountains, white beaches, lush rainforests and mangrove wetlands, you would probably wish to stay for a little longer. Here you can indulge yourself in water activities, like diving, snorkelling, boating and jet skiing. There’s also a stretch of luxury resorts along the shores of the island, offering world-class services at affordable prices.
If you’re more of a city person, explore Kuala Teregganu to see cultural and heritage sites of Malaysia, including the Istana Maziah Palace and the Crystal Mosque.
Being a melting pot of many different cultures, Singapore is said to be the Asian country where east meets west.
Explore the Little Red Dot through China Town or Little India to experience the diverse cultural aspects of the country. If you prefer experiencing modern Singapore, head to the central business district and the ever-popular Orchard Road—Singapore’s main shopping hub.
Singaporeans are fond of exotic and unique tastes. A trip to one of their hawker centres is an absolute must when you’re in the country. All food courts and stalls offer a wide variety of local dishes, as well as exotic flavours from neighbouring countries.
With a plethora of iconic temples and pristine beaches, Thailand is hands down one of Asia’s most visited destinations. Krabi, a ton resort near Andaman coast, is loved by tourists for its crystal clear waters, limestone karsts and mangrove forests. Remaining mostly untouched by tourism—although fast gaining in popularity—Krabi is a must-visit destination when in Thailand.
Alternatively, find your way to the second largest island in the country Koh Samui, a paradise known for its coconut groves, palm-fringed beaches and swanky resorts. Here, you can enjoy the luxury of the best resorts and hotels in Southeast Asia. Koh Samui is definitely one of the most wonderful islands in the country, offering a tranquil paradise with breathtaking views from anywhere in the island.
Southeast Asia never falls short of amazing places to visit. Whether you’re travelling to seek for some adventure or just wanting some time off for a much-needed R&R, these destinations offer unlimited fun and exciting experiences.
