Asia’s top travel destinations include everything from mega-metropolitan cities to remote islands that offer a balanced dose of adventure, ancient history, culture and cuisine. We have listed the top must-see destinations in Asia on the basis of attractions, accessibility and the local prices in each place.
Bali: The sandy shores, luxury hotels and ancient temples have always attracted couples from around the world. But it is also a favorite destination for adventurers and nature enthusiasts. This Shangri- La of Asia conjures daydreams of the fantastic landscapes, towering volcanoes wrapped in deep green canopy, turquoise waters bordered by sandy shores and curved coastlines be jewelled with ancient pagodas. Bali has everything to amuse an ordinary travel to a daring adventurer. An ordinary traveler can enjoy a stay at a luxurious oceanfront resort and indulge in exotic spa treatments. A historian can find delight by exploring the island’s temples. An adventurer can discover new paths up the volcano in Kintamani. The town of Kuta has more to offer those who enjoy late night treats.
Since accommodations could be pricey, prefer to take a cruise through Indonesia, which will dock in Bali. If you seek to go for spa treatments, prefer to stop in Kuta as the spa packages come with a less price than elsewhere in this island. Prefer to have your own self-guided tour rather than hiring tour guides.
Hong Kong: This former British colony is a massive city that offers exciting excursions, with tall skyscrapers to admire, high mountains to enjoy hiking and amusing theme parks to explore. Hong Kong fascinates travelers with its vibrant, diverse culture and outstanding city scape. The most striking feature of this city is the juxtaposed dense skyscrapers alongside lush green landscapes, giving room for more fresh air than what one could expect. This world class metropolis is also known for its culinary hot spots and museums.
Make your hotel reservations way ahead and choose travelling by tram and head to the food court to save money.
Singapore: This culinary Mecca is influenced by the international flavor brought down by the diverse population to the local culture. The city is blessed with an impressive skyline and lively neighborhoods. The city has an appropriate proportion of tall skyscrapers and green spaces with surprise enclaves like Little India and Chinatown. The Marina Bay is a stunning example of how much they have achieved. With Singapore’s modern achievements, the other part embraces large wetland preserves that rest quietly.
Use the MRT, which is timely, cheap and clean. Prefer to shop at Little India and Chinatown for inexpensive souvenirs. Try your hand at the famous Singapore Sling Cocktail.
Phuket: Phuket is a paradise of lush green hills, cerulean waters and wide beaches. It is affordable in terms of lodging. Accommodations in Surin and Bang Tao are a bit pricey. If you are looking for affordable lodgings, stay in Kamala or Laguna, whichever works best for you. Head to Patong and enjoy the island’s nightlife. Spend an evening at the Fantasea theme park to watch award winning shows and to enjoy a delicious buffet dinner
