With tourism costs on the decline in most parts of the world, now is a good time to look into Asian holiday destinations. For many years now, many tourists have flocked to Asia, in large numbers, especially for its beaches. While there are certainly some truly amazing beaches elsewhere in the world, nowhere does it come close to that which is found in Asia. Here are a few reasons why people keep coming back each year:
One of the most attractive Asian holiday destinations is Koh Samui in Thailand. Although Koh Samui is famous mainly as a hot holiday resort destination, there are actually a number of other equally beautiful beaches along this beautiful island. Koh Samui itself is a beautiful island surrounded by vast, crystal clear waters. Popularly known as ‘The Pearl of the Andaman Sea’, Koh Samui boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in all of Thailand and is a great getaway for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.
Another popular Asian holiday destination is Vietnam. Formed in the thirties after the Second World War, Vietnam is one of the rapidly developing countries in South East Asia, drawing a number of British expats, especially to its tropical climate. Like Koh Samui, Vietnam is also very well-known for its stunning coastal resorts and there are many to be found here. In fact, Hanoi is now rated as the top holiday destination in Southeast Asia and Hanoi is widely considered to be the most beautiful and appealing destination in Vietnam.
Indonesia is another popular Asian holiday destinations in Asia. Many visitors from Britain choose Java, Bali and Surabaya in Indonesia for their annual holidays. Each of these destinations offers different experiences and plenty of things to do – Java is a centre for the amazing Javanese culture and art, while Bali and Surabaya are famous for their scenic beauty and nightlife. Meanwhile, Bangkok is also growing as a popular Asian holiday destination and is currently the joint sixth most popular destination in the world. The capital is an exciting and fascinating mix of modern and ancient architecture and offers a wide variety of accommodation options – from backpackers’ hostels to the best of five-star luxury hotels.
There are also many other popular Asian holiday destinations in Asia and a short trip around the region will reveal a wealth of natural wonders and a colourful spectrum of cultures. India is a great place to go if you are looking for the rich cultural heritage and a range of fascinating Indian festivals, with central India always vibrant and exciting. The other popular touristic area of India is the state of Kerala in Southern India which is well known for its backwater and beaches. A Kerala tour is undoubtedly the best way to enjoy the charm and beauty of backwaters and the surrounding natural beauty and flora. South east of India is also a hot favorite holiday destination in Asia with a host of historical cities to explore including Delhi and Agra in the India.
Hong Kong is also a popular destination in Asia for backpackers and families who are looking for some fun in the sun and some great dining opportunities. The city attracts people from all over the world to its warm and friendly atmosphere. Popular Asian holiday destinations in Hong Kong include the Victoria Park, the Night Safari, the China Town and even more unusual locations such as the Yau Ma Tei Island and the Victoria Harbour. The Kowloon Bay is also a wonderful destination in Hong Kong as it has some fantastic water views from its open-air pavilions.
