with so much conjecture about favourite overseas travel spots I asked 11 other Travel Bloggers for their favourites and this is what they came up with:
Eight days was the perfect length of time to spend at Tanah Lot. I certainly saw a very different side to Bali than my previous visit – far removed from the busy tourist centre. I was completely relaxed and in tune with Bali – this beautiful peaceful country
So after holidaying in South East Asia on many occasions I have discovered what works well in your holiday wardrobe. I personally like to wear loose fitting dresses in lightweight fabrics that you can get away without ironing.
we all had one thing in common on our recent trip to Krabi in Thailand, and that was the desire to kick back and relax for seven rejuvenating days!
So is South East Asia the right travel destination for you? I think it is an acquired taste and like a lot of things in life you need to try it at least once to make up your own mind. For me I unreservedly give South East Asia the “thumbs up”!
Koh Samui is one place I could definitely return to again and again, just for the sheer relaxing vibe that it exudes.
Pattaya provided all the perfect things that a thriving beach resort city should offer: long stretches of sandy beaches, world-class resort hotels, water activities aplenty, beachfront restaurants and bars, great shopping and tourist attractions.
Made up of over 17,000 volcanic islands, Indonesia has something unique to offer everyone. Blessed with rich jungles, imposing volcanoes, and hundreds of kilometres of gorgeous beachfront there is plenty to do and see.
Sihanoukville, the capital of the Sihanoukville Province was not the prettiest of the Asian cities I have visited, however it does have some lovely palm-fringed beaches, tropical islands and the mangrove jungles of Ream National Park.
Already a popular resort before the war, Vung Tau came to be used by Australian and American servicemen as a rest area during the Vietnam War campaign. After the war, Vung Tau was a common launching place for the Vietnamese Boat People fleeing the new regime.
