Must-Visit Asian Destinations

If you thought there wasn’t much to do in Asia, think again. From stunning beaches to bustling metropolises and fantastic scenery to sensory-overload street markets, you’ll probably want to spend more time there just soaking in everything. Of course, you’ll have your own preferences on what you’ll prefer to see and do, so we’ve taken the liberty of listing down our top 5 Asian contenders worth visiting in 2018 just down below:

 

Bali

With sweeping valleys, crystal clear waters, and majestic mountain ranges, it isn’t hard to see why Bali, Indonesia is referred to by many travelers as "heaven on earth”. However, that’s not all there is to this idyllic Sumatran island. Here, you’ll also get to enjoy the taste of Indonesian fare, iconic Balinese hospitality, as well as world class spas and massages that will leave you wanting for more.

 

Kyoto

The red pillars leading to the Fushimi Inari Shrine is often portrayed in most Kyoto tourist pictures, but it’s definitely not the only attraction worth visiting in this former Japanese capital. With plenty of ancient religious sites scattered all over the prefecture and the opportunity to participate in a session of kaiseki (a multi-course meal native to this prefecture), you’re bound to enjoy every moment here.

 

Hong Kong

This financial power hub was once a British colony, and in fact, still retains some of its Western influences even after gaining their independence. However, the flavor here is very much distinctly Chinese, so although you’ll get to enjoy tons of shopping opportunities and delicious dining experiences, you’ll also get to immerse yourself in an authentic Chinese atmosphere that’s unique on its own.

 

Bangkok

As a major Asian tourist destination, Bangkok definitely doesn’t disappoint. From being the world’s street food capital to having some of the most active nightlife activities, this bustling capital has already captured the hearts of many. This are famed for their amazing hospitality worldwide, so if you’re looking to relax and enjoy the world as time goes by, you’ll want to make a stop here sooner rather than later.

 

Hanoi

Although relatively new to the tourist market, Hanoi is fast becoming a top Asian destination due to its beautiful convergence of Chinese, Southeast-Asian and French influences. Take a stroll around Dong Xuan, the city’s largest market, and sit and relax with a refreshing cup of Vietnamese coffee. If you’re up for some outdoor activities, you definitely won’t be disappointed either.
