We are expected to have a very cold winter this year once again. Extremely cold weather, which makes us feel as though we need to go into hibernation, discourages us from going out very often. How about relieving the stress of everyday life in a warm country? Here, we are going to introduce you to some hot places to help beat the winter cold.
Nha Trang in Vietnam, a dual-benefit travel destination where you can enjoy sightseeing and recreation at the same time.
South Vietnam's representative resort city, Nha Trang is emerging as one of the country’s most popular travel destinations. All year round in Nha Trang, you can take in magnificent views of the blue sky and the ocean, which offer a beautiful contrast with the white, clear clouds in the sky. In Nha Trang, you will heal sufficiently simply by walking beneath palm trees or lying on a beach under the hot sun otherwise unavailable in the winter.
With a range of quality accommodation options available at affordable prices, Nha Trang is a popular travel destination for couples and families alike. Most of the city’s resorts are located close to the beaches, so you can relax with ease, and the recreational facilities are also of excellent quality. Because there are many accommodations in the city that are equipped with large swimming pools and even private swimming pools, the city is suitable for ‘hocance’ (a portmanteau coined in South Korea by combining hotel and vacation). Not only that, Nha Trang also boasts a variety of charming tourist attractions.
From Thap Ba Spa known for its mud spas to Nha Trang's largest traditional market Dam Market to the massive theme park Vinpearl Land which offers a ton of fun things to do, including an amusement park, an aquarium, and a safari park! For those who want to enjoy both sightseeing and recreation in one place, we highly recommend Nha Trang, Asia’s very own Naples.
Palawan in the Philippines, a destination that offers a wide variety of activity tours.
Featuring emerald sea water so clear that you can actually see through it, Palawan is a travel destination where you can enjoy nature and activities at the same time. Because there are a wide range of tours to enjoy on the ground, under the sea, and in the sky in Palawan, you have no time to get bored even amid the calm of nature.
A tour enjoyed on the ground, Jungle ATV is an ATV experience program that provides you with the opportunity to drive off-road in the jungle. Highly recommended for those who want to fully absorb nature in all its purest form, the program features high slopes and obstacles in many locations, letting you enjoy dynamic ATV driving to your heart’s content.
A tour enjoyed under the sea, a hopping tour takes you under the sea of Palawan. Palawan's sea water is so transparent and crystal clear that you can vividly see living corals under the sea as well as many fish swimming between them.
A tour enjoyed in the sky, Zip Line is a fast-paced tour across the expansive sky. In Palawan where there are not many high-rise buildings obstructing views, you can take in the wonderful natural scenery simply by going up a little. As this tour involves zipping from the forest to the sea at high speed, it is highly recommended for those who are adrenaline junkies!
Kota Kinabalu in Malaysia, a destination offering a beautiful night view.
Kota Kinabalu is a destination highly recommended for those who want to be close together with their loved ones in an atmospheric setting, as well as for night owls whose eyes sparkle brightly particularly at night. Known as one of the world's top 3 sunset destinations, Kota Kinabalu provides a range of opportunities to see mesmerizing sunsets, each one uniquely beautiful depending on the viewing spot. The most famous spot is the waterfront, where you can witness the magical spectacle of the colors of the world changing as the sky turns gold around 6 pm.
Now that you are in a sufficiently pleasant mood, it's time to head to the night market!
Next to the waterfront stands the Filipino Market, a night market that sells a variety of skewered foods, grilled fish, and tropical fruits. Enjoy a variety of Malaysian local dishes for cheap at the night market, one of Southeast Asia's most popular attractions.
Made up of over 130 large and small islands, Krabi in Thailand offers many exciting things to see.
As Krabi is relatively quiet compared to other vacation spots, it is recommended for those who want to travel in a relaxed manner. Among its many islands, four beautiful islands, Koh Hong, Koh Tub, Koh Kai, and Koh Poda, are most well-known and are the pride of Krabi. On these islands, you can relish the exquisite harmony created by emerald sea water and cliffs naturally eroded by winds and waves.
Koh Hong, particularly beloved by tourists, is a clean area that is far cleaner than the other islands. On the island, not only can you head out on a speedboat ride for catching the cool sea breeze, but you can also go snorkeling to swim among fish under the sea.
Krabi is not just a place that boasts outstanding natural scenery. If you want to take a night street walk or enjoy exciting music and a romantic vibe at pubs or bars, venture out into the city center of Ao Nang. Not as busy as other cities in Thailand, Ao Nang offers a quiet charm. There are also many shops selling interesting trinkets in every corner of the city center of Ao Nang, so we recommend you to immerse into the hustle and bustle of the residents’ daily lives and enjoy new experiences there!
Put aside the stress of everyday life for a while and leave for a warm country to escape the cold. Although the trip will be short, the clean nature and thrilling activities you will enjoy on the trip will certainly chase your stress away.
