With National Day falling on a Friday and Hari Raya Haji on Sunday, make the best of the four-day weekend by rediscovering familiar haunts or exploring new territories. Klook rounds up five destinations worth a gander.
Hoi An sits by the river and boasts charming architecture that belies its heritage. Start your day with a cooking class and then paddle out into the Coconut forest countryside on a basket boat. While in the area, take day trips out to explore the ruins of My Son, the imperial city in Hue and Marble mountain with a private car charter.
Spend a day in the bustling Thai capital before heading off on a new adventure in sleepy Kanchanaburi. Get a dose of culture and history as you explore the different landmarks that are symbolic to Kanchanaburi’s tragedies and triumphs during World War II. Feast your eyes on the slow-moving, magnificent views of River Kwai on your train ride via the Death Railway.
Island hop and swim in crystal clear waters, soft white sand and delicious Lechon, could you really ask for more on a vacation? Tick off a bucket list experience and swim with whale sharks in Cebu. Feeling even more adventurous? Head to the famous cliffs of Badian for canyoneering and visit the majestic Kawasan waterfalls at the same time.
The varied landscape of hills, sandy beaches, lush rice terraces and sometimes barren volcanos make Bali an irresistible paradise on Earth. If you’ve hiked up Mount Batur for the sunrise, take an Instagram worthy picture at Lempuyang Temple, how about a USS Liberty shipwreck scuba dive or watch a traditional Kecak fire dance against the Luhur Uluwatu Temple.
Luang Prabang, Laos
A UNESCO heritage site, the town of Luang Prabang is a charming mix of French colonial buildings and temples. Witness the morning alms ceremony where young monks collect sticky rice and food offerings as their daily ritual and then head over to the majestic Kuang Si waterfalls to jump into its refreshing waters and watch them change from a deep blue to aqua green.
