Famous for its friendly people, historical significance, and gorgeous landscapes, South East Asia is quickly gaining ground as a popular tourist destination for discriminating global travellers. The region has so many fascinating countries to explore that it would truly take a lifetime to thoroughly get acquainted with each one. Visitors to Bali, Borneo, and Vietnam gain a snapshot view of the beauty and cultural depth of South East Asia.
The Indonesian island of Bali features some of the world’s most acclaimed beaches. Many of the popular activities for the country’s visitors centre on these lovely stretches of coastline. Besides its incomparable sandy shores, the ocean currents surrounding the island offer suitable playgrounds for a variety of water sport activities while on Bali holidays.
Not everything in life is black and white; the exception is Nammos Kandara Beach in Ungasan and Lovina Beach in northern Bali. The resplendent Nammos Kandara beach with its pure white sandy shores is hidden away among the island’s cliffs at its southern most point. The Nammos Kandara’s waves are sufficiently challenging for skilled surfers during high tide, and snorkelers wait for low tide to enjoy calmer waters for leisurely swimming while on Bali holidays.
The volcanic nature of Bali has produced black sand beaches like those of Lovina Beach. This uncrowded beach is one of Bali’s obscure coastal gems that is sure to please beach enthusiasts on Bali holidays. Its calm azure waters provide an ideal spot for swimming and snorkelling throughout the day. Lovina remains relatively untouched by the industrial tourism industry, and its rare black sand contrasted by the striking blue waters of the Indian Ocean is memorably picturesque.
Brunei, Indonesia, and Malaysia share the island of Borneo. The island is best known for its dense jungles and an abundant variety of exotic wildlife conscientiously preserved for visitors to enjoy during Borneo holidays. Nature enthusiasts on Borneo holidays flock to Sabah’s Sukau Rainforest Lodge to see some of Borneo’s endangered wildlife in their native habitat. Visitors bird watch, take guided jungle treks, and river safaris while on a Borneo holiday.
The Sights and Sounds of Vietnam
Vietnam’s culture is unique, but it has been heavily influenced by the colonial powers which historically ruled there. For example, visitors on Vietnam holidays see a South East Asian country that has adopted many French culinary traditions and some Chinese words and phrases. Vietnam presents an eclectic contrast of bustling city streets, lush countryside’s, and lively river traffic. For adventure seekers on Vietnam holidays, one of the best ways to get around the country is by motor bike. Professional guides regularly take visitors on motorbike sightseeing tours. The famed Mekong River also gives tourists on Vietnam holidays a glimpse of how trade is sometimes accomplished in South East Asia when they experience Vietnamese farmers selling fresh vegetables by boat.
