Best Travel Destinations In The Southeast And East Of Asia

The world is a vast and wonderful place that has way too many things to be explored and that can be covered by a human lifespan. But you must do what you get with time and also money. Asia is the largest of the continents in the world and harbors the countries that belong to the ‘old world’ when civilization was present before industrial age or colonization. So most of these countries have a rich history and culture, and with many traditions that would not have even entered your imagination.

Vientiane

The capital city of Laos, this wondrous place holds the Buddhist stupa, ‘Pha Hat Luang’, which dates back to the 1586. This country was colonized by the French and you still see some of the influence in the architecture of the place. The great Mekong River runs on the edge of city so you are bound to get a view of the beauty of nature that coexist with urbanization. Vientiane is on the border of the Laos and Thailand, so if you plan on visiting Thailand as well then make this city your last destination in Laos.

Sa Pa

The capital of the Sa Pa district of Vietnam, this is one of the main market town in the area. The beauty of this town is not in its market, but in the place it is located at. Sa Pa is located within the Hoàng Liên Son mountain range and hosts an array of beautiful landscapes for you to enjoy throughout the day. Sa Pa is considered a quiet town so go here if you want to enjoy some time off of the city life where everything seems to move at once. On the lucky days that the mist clears up, you can see the one of the highest peak on the latter part of the Himalayan Mountain, the Fan Si Pan.

Phi Phi islands

These tiny islands lie in the between of the Strait of Malacca coast of the mainland and the island that was devastated by the Indian Ocean Tsunami of 2004. This is the largest of the islands of the Krabi province and the most populated island as well. Tourists and locals alike visit this place during their down time due to the gorgeous beaches in the area. Besides you could even meet agents there to book apartments for long term rental Phuket. If you plan on staying at long term rental Phuket, and do not fancy the large crowds, then this island is not too far from it so you can always take the transport system to reach Phi Phi. You can find many wonderful areas to visit in Asia as most of these places have not been properly documented unless it is a major city. And the culture and traditions found in these places are not replicated in other places of the world either.
