Asia Highlights Part 2

We recently posted pictures of some of the best places to visit throughout Southeast Asia.

There are so many to choose from though that we needed to post some more.

Ha Long Bay

A stunning UNESCO World Heritage site with incredible limestone karsts, caves, islands and floating villages.

Best visited on an overnight cruise to make the most of this wonderful area.

Ubud, Indonesia

Away from the beaches and nightlife often associated with Bali is the town of Ubud.

Surrounded by rainforest, rice terraces, temples and shrines, Ubud is a relaxing and spectacular location.

Yangon, Myanmar

Yangon, or Rangoon, is a place that not many will be lucky enough to visit.

The largest city in Myanmar (Burma) it is home to beautiful Buddhist temples and pagodas, alongside wonderful British colonial buildings.

Shopping in Singapore

If you love to shop, you will adore Singapore.

From the bustling, modern Orchard Road offering world class brands and shopping to China Town and Little India with their wonderful markets and bazaars.

Khao Lak, Thailand

Often overlooked in favour of the better known areas in Thailand such as Phuket and Koh Samui.

Khao Lak is home to stunning beaches and a more relaxed way of life that its busier rivals. It’s also much easier to find traditional Thai life and food here than in other tourist areas.

Sarawak, Malaysia

An ideal location to explore Borneo well known for it’s rainforests, national parks and caves but also offering world class beaches and the incredible, bustling city of Kuching.

Phnom Penh, Cambodia

The capital of Cambodia has much to offer the traveller.

Many people will focus on commemorations of the Cambodian War including Choeung Ek Memorial (Killing Fields) and S-21 museum.

However the Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda and Independence Memorial are also must see locations.
