Spirited cities, impressive temples, remote hill tribes, smouldering volcanoes, verdant rice paddies, vast lakes, nocturnal hikes through tropical rainforests, night markets, sky bars, street food, elephants, orangutans – there’s a lifetime of adventure to be found in south-east Asia.
Of course, the ideal escape will combine the region’s most exciting cities, most wondrous wildlife and best cultural attractions with some well-earned flops on the beach.
The sensational shopping of Bangkok, a few heavenly massages in Thailand, the white shores of Koh Samui, the sleepy South China Sea coast of Vietnam, the astonishing ancient ruins of Cambodia, the unexplored terrains of Myanmar, the necklace of islands at Indonesia, ‘older than Amazon’ forests of Malaysia.
The best time to visit Thailand, Burma, Vietnam and Cambodia is during from December to March, when temperatures is around 30C, rainfall and humidity levels are low. Get there before word gets out
