Thailand is the quintessential backpacker country; from secluded beaches, to cascading waterfalls. A full day island hopping trip across the islands of Phi Phi, Nui Bay, Pileh Bay and Monkey Island is highly recommended.

And, if you love theme parks, head to the Universal Studios Singapore and Sentosa Island to conquer the rides and have a lot of fun.
Kuala Lumpur is a city that offers an immersive experience to the travellers. The city’s most iconic and top landmarks include the National Mosque, King’s Palace, KL Tower, the National Museum, and Petronas Twin Towers.

Home to the best dim sums, the exotic destination of Hong Kong is a must visit during summers.
