Places to stay
Welcome to the "Land of Smiles". From the vibrant bustle of Bangkok to the serenity of Mai Khao and full moon parties in Koh Phangan, Thailand holidays are full of contrasts. Uncover ice white beaches in Khao Lak and Phuket. Shop at floating markets in the capital. Watch elephants in Khao Sok. Go partying in Pattaya. Or feast on the freshest seafood in Hua Hin. This is what Asia holidays are made for!
Amongst the rice paddies and ancient temples, Bali holidays feel like another world entirely. Stay close to the capital Denpasar, for top-notch restaurants and the vibrant nightlife of Kuta and Seminyak. For local charm and luxe stays, seek out Jimbaran, Pemuteran, and Nusa Dua. Or channel your inner Julia Roberts with your own "Eat, Pray, Love" journey into the spiritual heart of Ubud.
Jungle-cloaked wilderness, blonde beaches, tumbling waterfalls, and rustic bars make Malaysia a must for any holiday to Asia. Zoom to Kuala Lumpur for skyscrapers and the iconic Petronas Towers. Dive into culture in Penang's colourful capital, George Town. While in laid-back Langkawi, you’ll find lush greenery and sweeping beaches. Take a cable car to Gunung Machinchang Mountain, paddle through mangroves and rugged caves, or hop on a boat to neighbouring islands.
Hong Kong holidays are electric. An enrapturing sensory overload. Gaze up at the iconic skyline from Victoria Peak. Navigate the lively Mong Kok markets. Connect with nature at the serene Hong Kong Wetland Park. Or visit ancient temples like Wong Tai Sin. And then there’s the street food. We're talking spicy fish balls, crispy egg waffles, chewy cheung fun and that unforgettable stinky tofu.
India holidays have got it all - dense mountains, untamed jungles, pulsating cities, and Goa’s secluded beaches. While away your days on the tucked away sands of Chapora. Explore India's scenic jungles along the Mandovi River. Or, if you're feeling adventurous, spot crocodiles in Cumbarjua. And by night? Goa comes alive with Bollywood disco and retro house beats in Baga and Calangute. India brings a whole lot of rhythm to Asia holidays.
Singapore, a city, an island, and a country. This super-stylish modern gem shimmers with its sleek steel structures, glittering rooftop bars and magnificent shopping centres. And it's well on its way to becoming a "city in a garden," green spaces are springing up everywhere. Don't miss a visit to Gardens by the Bay for breathtaking views over the Marina. Singapore is also surrounded by 62 other islands, so take a leisurely stroll along the boardwalk to Sentosa's powdery white beaches.
Palm-fringed beaches, mesmerising tea trails and ancient temples make Sri Lanka a top spot for Asian holidays. And then there’s the wildlife. From whale-watching off the coast to spotting leopards and elephants in Yala National Park. And it’s well worth delving into any of the eight UNESCO-stamped sites to see ancient cities, holy shrines and sacred temples.
