Summer vacation is the best season of the year in the South East Asia region. If you plan on having your summer vacation here, check out these two wonderful places. You would be surprised that one of them might just be your perfect destination for spending your summer vacation!
Being known as the largest island in Thailand, and probably the most famous island in the country, Phuket has certainly been a tourist favourite in terms of spending their summer here with their stunning beaches and relaxing atmosphere.
Beaches and Islands
What is summer without a beach? Phuket itself is full of wonderful beaches and bays, the most prominent one being Patong Beach. It is almost crowded during the peak seasons, but not during summertime. You can enjoy the dazzling white beach and counting cruises pass by every day, a unique way to soak under the sun for a suntan.
Besides, you can go hopping islands around Phuket as well, there are some rising stars such as Phi Phi Island, Phang Nga Bay (James Bond Island), Similan Island, Coral Island, etc. It is the perfect location for snorkelling!
Cheap and Budget
Though you might be living in an expensive and luxury hotel during your summer visit, there are also some cheap and affordable rustic huts for backpackers, as low as 1000 baht. You can also search for pad Thai, banana pancakes with condensed milk from street vendors for 100 baht.
Most tourist love to visit their 7-Eleven store in Phuket. The foods and groceries are extremely cheap over there! Don’t forget to take a selfie with Lays~
Spa and Massage
I think most of us could agree on this. One of the vital reason for visiting Phuket is to get a well-deserved massage. Thai massages are famous for being soothing and rejuvenating. Indulge in a relaxing aromatherapy session and let go off your heavy workloads and burdens.
2. Da Nang
Most people would choose Ho Chi Minh City or Ha Long Bay for a visit in Vietnam. However, the city of Da Nang, particularly the Cau Vang Bridge shocked the world by surprise with its fantastic architecture design. This summer, you could also pay a visit here, and enjoy a special journey that would take your breath away!
There are tons of Instagramable Spot here, that I could only mention a few. First off, we have the “Hands of the God”, the red hot Cau Vang Bridge, a 150 meters long pedestrian walkway bridge, that rest on two massive hands.
Then we have the Cau Rong Bridge (Dragon Bridge), a golden dragon-shaped serpentine-like creature that could spit fire and water. It is one of the coolest bridges ever seen before.
You can get practically any food here, but it is advisable to dine in the best local Vietnamese cuisine here. There is some deliciously cooked food such as Mi Quang, a traditional Central Vietnam Noodle dish that served all day long.
Or you could enjoy banh xeo, a sizzling pancake made of rice flour and stuffed with veggies and shrimp, right under the hot sun. Simply delicious!
Slower Pace of Life
If you want an urban escape, Da Nang might just be your perfect spot, especially during your summer vacation. What can be more perfect than to have your phone stop vibrating for a fine sunny evening?
You can just marvel at the spectacular view in the longest cable car ride before heading on top of the French village, Ba Na Hills, and enjoy your lazy afternoon with a sip of hot coffee.
