Published: 13 December 2014
With a great mix of culture and a number of attractions to see and experience, South East Asia has great destinations to explore and has become an increasingly popular tourist region.
We look at some great places to visit:
Known as Asia’s sleeping tiger, the Philippines will fill your travels with lifelong memories. With more than 7,000 tropical islands, the Philippines is defined by emerald rice fields, great cities, smouldering volcanoes, happy go lucky people and stunning beaches. A mix of the traditional Asian culture combined with Spanish influences, it’s a charming country and perfect for those who want a relaxing trip or for the more adventurous who want to explore. Visit the popular Tubbataha Reef, often referred to as the underwater Garden of Eden. Its coral reef and marine life has attracted travellers for years!
Fondly known in South East Asia as the Land of Smiles, Thailand has it all; beaches, national parks, picturesque mountains and cosmopolitan cities. Spend the first few days in bustling Bangkok, the capital city which oozes energy and a vibrancy that draws thousands of tourists in each year. Shop in the floating markets and the night bazaars. Then head to one of the numerous beach resorts for rest and relaxation. Enjoy famous Thai massages at a fraction of UK prices, pure paradise! A must if travelling in this region.
It is no surprise that this is one of the world’s hotlist destinations. Singapore is the answer to modern day traveling. Plush malls, sci-fi architecture, billion-dollar gardens, museums & art galleries and delicious food, this is a great destination to visit if you want to experience old and new. Temples amongst sky scrapers, hi-tech malls amongst rickety markets, apartments backing onto jungles, and shop houses with secret cocktail dens! Shop till you drop, explore city life, head to universal studios and visit Sentosa Island for relaxation and a visit to Asia’s largest tropical fish oceanarium. Enjoy vibrant evenings with world class food and enjoy a famous Singapore sling at the Raffles hotel! This is a wonderful destination to visit; perfect for solo travellers, couples, groups of friends and families!
