So, we have tackled some of the coldest places in the world and discovered that behind having a frigid temperature, these places can still be amazing tourist destinations. In that article, we listed Oymyakon, Verkhoyansk, Yakutsk and Antartica as the world’s coldest places. Now, let us feature the sun, the beach, and the ivory-white sand of the warmest places in the eastern part of the globe – Asia. Let’s find out what the Three Best Countries to Travel in Asia are!

Asia, the largest continent on Earth, is home to some of the most beautiful countries in the planet. Among these are Maldives, Indonesia, and the Republic of the Philippines. Let us take a closer look on each of these picturesque countries and discover what they have to offer.

MaldivesMaldives

Behind being the smallest, Maldives managed to be among the top tourist destinations in Asia. We know that winter usually falls on December; however, Maldives is an exemption. The best time to visit this small island is during December until April as this is the dry season.

Indonesia

BaliIndonesia is the world’s fourth most populous country. Nonetheless, getting here does not mean travelers have to deal with a multitude of people. The tourism authority of this country understands the need of tourists for a tranquil yet breathtaking place. In addition to Jakarta, which is the country’s capital city, tourists should stay at some of the elegant resorts in Bali or visit the wilderness of Kalimantan.

Philippines

Palawan

According to Wikipedia, “tourism is a major contributor to the economy of the Philippines”. Yes, this is true. In fact, if you are a tourist who plans to visit a country that takes pride of its white sand beaches, green mountains, vast rainforest, historical caves, secluded islands, and rich diving spots, then you have to experience Philippines.

Best Places to Visit

  • Palawan
  • Bohol
Recommended Itinerary

  • An island located above the country of Malaysia and below South China Sea, Palawan houses the loveliest places in the country – Puerto Princesa and El Nido.
  • Take a kayak tour at one of the ‘New 7 Wonders of Nature’, the Puerto Prinsesa Subterranean River
  • Aside from visiting the Chocolate Hills, make sure to experience the ‘unexplored’ places in Bohol. For a five-star accommodation such as infinity pool, private spa and whirlpool, prepare to pay as much as $4, 200 per night.

Now, I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Asia, having travelled to Thailand, Laos, China, and my second home country, Korea. The best advice I can give is to try to stay away from the most trafficked hot spots and try to go to the cities that surround them and briefly visit the hot spots to really get a good perspective on the area. Oh the places you can go!
