When we talk about the beach, it will be an endless conversation. I am on of those person who LOVES beaches, I even plan to have a house on the beach side for my retirement. For this article, I will be suggesting which Southeast Asia beach holiday is on top of my list. As we all know Southeast Asia, known for its stunning landscapes and rich cultural heritage, is also home to some of the best beach destinations in the world. Here are our top five picks for an unforgettable beach holiday.
- Bali, Indonesia
This is top of my list, Bali is a paradise for beach lovers. From the popular Kuta Beach to the tranquil sands of Nusa Dua, there’s something for everyone. I travel to Bali at least once a year, Bali offers one of the best beaches in SEA. Bali is also filled with beautiful landscapes, scenery, and historical and religious monuments. Ensure you follow local customs and respect religious sites. The food is a gastronomic delight, offering a blend of Indonesian cuisines. A must-try from their street food is their grilled corn with BBQ sauce, it’s just yummy. Let’s not forget that Bali’s nightlife is vibrant with beach clubs and the bars open till late. A must go is Motel Mexicola, this place jam packed with people and they played really good music.
- Phuket, Thailand
Thailand has a lot of nice and beautiful islands but for this one, I’ll choose Phuket. Phuket is Thailand’s largest island and a popular beach destination. Patong Beach is famous for its nightlife, while Kata Noi is perfect for relaxation. Street food is a must-try, with local dishes like Pad Thai and Tom Yum soup. Take a stroll down along the beach of Patong and if you have time do catch the sunrise or the sunset. Thailand is generally safe, but do be mindful of your belongings. It’s easier to travel around Phuket if you know how to ride a motorbike cause the location from one end to one end is not that far.
