With National Day falling on a Friday and Hari Raya Haji on
Sunday, it is the perfect time to visit these beautiful places and relieve yourself from the stress.
Hoi An, Vietnam
Hoi An is one of Vietnam’s most atmospheric and delightful towns. A major port in the past, it boasts the grand architecture and a riverside setting that befits its heritage. And the best part? The town is devoid of any traffic or pollution.
Lounge bars, boutique hotels, travel agents and a glut of tailor shops are very much part of the scene here. And yet, down by the market and over on Cam Nam Island, you’ll find life has changed little. Travel a few kilometres further – you’ll find some superb bicycle, motorbike and boat trips – and some of central Vietnam’s most breathtaking scenery and beaches are within easy reach.
Kanchanaburi, Thailand Kanchanaburi is a small town that’s quickly gaining traction due to its rich culture, wonderful sights and a haunting past. There’s plenty to see, including museums, war memorials, waterfalls, temples. The city offers a range of delightful diversions, whether bamboo rafting journeys along the River Kwae, Khmer temple tour, or a day at the gemstone village. The scenic riverside area sets the stage for a leisurely stroll but can also become loud at night due to music from karaoke bars and discos.
Cebu, Philippines From the cosmopolitan metropolis of Cebu City and the white-sand beaches of Mactan to the electric-blue waters of Kawasan Falls and the whale sharks of Oslob, it’s easy to see why Cebu Island is one of the Philippines’ top destinations(Trip Advisor, 2019). Well, Cebu might also be your best chance to get down to a talk with a whale shark!
Bali, Indonesia This Indonesian island needs no introduction. On the bucket list of almost every traveler, pack your bags if you haven't visited Bali yet. Exotic temples and palaces set against stunning natural backdrops are some of the top attractions. After sunset, famous nightspots come to life, offering exciting clubbing and packed dance floors. Inland, towering volcanoes and pristine jungles greet you with plenty to see and do, but you would not want to stay away from the beach for long.
Luang Prabang, Laos
Surrounded by towering mountain ranges, lush greenery, and the majestic Mekong River, the small town of Luang Prabang in Laos has for centuries been dwelling in its royal patronage, glistening temples, and incredible Buddhist culture. At a stone's throw from the Laotian capital of Vientiane, this picturesque town is now marked a UNESCO Heritage Site, bringing throngs of travelers and with them, an insatiable appetite for food, culture, and sightseeing.
