The Daily Mail in the UK has published a list of its new “Wonders of the World” and it includes entries from Southeast Asia.
The list is very much aimed at the millennial generation presenting ideal Instagram opportunities giving ” instant impact, offering the ‘wow factor’ and ‘awesomeness’ in spades”.
Gardens By The Bay, Singapore
Opened in 2012, Gardens by the Bay is an urban park covering 250 acres in the heart of Singapore, next to the Marina reservoir.
The park consists of three gardens and was part of the aim to transform the city state into a “City in a Garden”.
The largest of the gardens is Bay South Garden which includes the iconic 18 Supertrees which are not just part of the biodivesity of the garden but also act as spectacular structures that light up and form part of nightly light shows.
One of the most popular attractions is the skywalk between the two tallest Supertrees.
As an Instragram star the Gardens by the Bay continues to be a huge draw with the hashtag #gardensbythebay having had more than a million posts.
Jungle Swings, Bali, Indonesia
The Bali Swing has become an iconic visit for Instagram hungry visitors to the island, either at the original swing near Ubud or the numerous others that have appeared throughout the island.
The Bali Swing has swings ranging from 10m, 15m, 20m and 78m above ground plus other attractions including “Hanging Nests”.
Other swings include the Ubud Swing at the Zen Hideaway, the Swing in Love which hangs underneath a giant red heart and the Blangsinga Waterfall Swing
Golden Bridge, Da Nang, Vietnam
Opened in 2018 the Golden Bridge connects the cable car station and the gardens at the Ba Na Hills resort near Da Nang.
The 150 metre bridge appears to be held aloft by the two giant hands with the garden and has quickly become an incredibly popular tourist attraction.
Since the bridge opened more than 20,000 posts have appeared on Instagram at #goldenbridgevietnam.
