It is a pleasant steamy island site with its peaceful life style offering a wonderful place for this surfing event. Surfers from the countries like Malaysia, Japan, New Zealand, Hawaii, Philippines, Indonesia, and Bali etc will represent their countries for this surfing cup event at Club 9. The participation from the viewers will be much greater if the storm occurrence will be reported earlier. It is famous for having world’s top surfing waves, so nick named cloud nine.
It is considered as the most striking island destinations of the Philippines presenting opportunities for surfing photography. Siargao is closest to the Philippine Deep which is the second deepest ocean trench. The slanting structure on Siargao’s East coast is besides General Luna Town making it exceptional. Barrelling, empty and perfect waves of Cloud 9, ranging from 1-1.5 meters high to 2-3 meter high barrels have made this part of Pacific Ocean more attractive for surfers. This part of Pacific Ocean is under the typhoon-belt so typhoon waves don’t hit Siargao Island directly. Siargao Island offers great atmosphere during monsoon season which is loved by all enthusiastic surfers. What makes this event special and different from standard surfing style is that the challengers will be deciding under which conditions they would like to surf.
If you have any interest in watching surfing challenges, action sports photography and living at steamy Island sites, then Siargao would be the best site for you to visit and enjoy.
Direct flight can be taken from Mactan Cebu International Airport or Manila to reach Siargao airport. You can even take ferryboat daily before noon to take view of this island and to get pleasure from its aquatic wildlife.
Siargao Island adventure tour can be the luxurious adventure of your life with your friends, sailing boat, drinks and delicious food. It has atmosphere for day/night fishing adventure. You can enjoy swimming at low tide and even in natural swimming pools. Caving discoveries in this island also bring a new look to your adventurous tour. Island also has some caves yet not discovered by men. Jungles enriched with wildlife have their own beauty. You can’t find much exciting stuff for shopping but while visiting island you can buy some local made products. Communicating with the people of different back grounds came with different objectives is a good source of sharing experiences. In Siargao Island Lovers Lane was established in 2005 to attract tourist. Disco clubs and snack bars are opened late night to entertain visitors. You can also find some bar girls who offer you a little more than just conversation. Rent a kayak or paddle boat to explore the cost line completely.
Accommodation and hostelling services in Siargao Island vary in price and form. Islands adjacent to Siargao are offering wonderful environment to enjoy other sports. Beautiful hotel nights and splendid sea shore have couple of entertainment facilities. To attract more visitors no spectators’ fee will be charged and other water sports activities will also be held. Above all visitors from different part of the world will built an outstanding multicultural and diversified community for sharing experiences and ideas.
Had a great time in Krabi just an hour or so outside Phuket.
Also Phi Phi Island - just divine.
Is Australia in Asia ?
Caramoan Islands site of five survivor already and Palawan's El Nido in the Philippines, feel like a king or queen with just few dollars!
depends on what you are looking for.
Islands: Malaysian islands on east coast/in Sabah. Bali too.
Food: Malaysia, Thailand
Shopping: Bangkok (on a low budget), with a higher budget KL and Singapore too.
The only Asian place I can mention (because that's the only one I've visited) is Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. Liked the city, ran a recruiting ad, met a prospect who was a retired Hindu police officer. We did a little bit of business together--nothing much in the end--but I profited greatly by his hospitality. He took me to his home where I met his gracious wife as well as to a Hindu temple. We also shared an evening meal once, Chinese food bought from a street vendor and eaten while perched on stools rooted in concrete, watching the rats running around beneath our feet.
Could have commented on Tokyo, but we were only there for a few hours while the airline tried to locate a replacement part for one of our engines that was broken. Turned out there was none such in the city, and eventually--having never left the plane--we winged all the way back across the Pacific without it.
No harm, no foul!
I have been to Goa India, Very beautiful,perfect climate and super affordable.
leh in the north of India just beautiful a mixture of people Muslim buddhist Hindu baron desert lush green on the river banks snow capped mountains of which i climbed stock kangri 6132 meters
there are so many places in asia which are very beautiful, like some place in china, india, pakisatn, etc
In China I can highly recommend Guilin for its amazing and strange round mountains and beautiful rivers - and its rice terraces, Zhang Jia Jie for its mountains of vertical rock fingers and clean air, Xiamen to see the remains of the colonial island and taste its history. Personally I avoid the more established western advertised places like Dali, Shangri La because they have become rather seedy and try to rip you off at every turn. Shanghai for the buildings, Beijing for the clubbing and nightlife and the Great wall, and a host of other small places that are harder to find if just touring around.
It really depends on what you like to do on your holiday. As others have said, there are many beautiful places but here are a few suggestions.
In Vietnam - Sapa is very beautiful and so too is the area around Bac Ha - high in the mountains. Ninh Binh is also quintessentially Vietnam with wonderful rice paddies.
In Laos - the area around Luang Prabang is very pretty and so too are the limestone caves around Vang Vieng (although the town itself isn't).
In Cambodia a wee island off the south coast called Bamboo Island is pristine (although marked for development) and very peaceful. Of course the ancient temples are superb too.
I'll stop now!
We are planning a trip through Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia in the not too distant future and would be especially interested in specific places there to see and those to avoid.
China man you certainly have a treat in store for you when you travel through these countries.
I can't promote my own hubs here but if you want to read more about any of these three countries, you can find hubs on Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos under my hub name. I've been lucky enough to travel through all three.
How long are you going for?
Well we are thinking maybe the winter holiday so would be one month and February if it isn't monsoon season
I would definitely limit the countries and visit just two otherwise you just end up being in "transit mode" for the whole journey rather than experiencing a place.
Depending upon what you like to do, you could easily spend one month in Vietnam. There's a wide range of sights and experiences from Halong Bay in the north, to the mountains of Sapa, to the ancient cities of Hue and Hoi An, the fascinating area around Hanoi's Old Quarter etc.
Alternatively Laos where the people are amazingly relaxed and the streets in the capital are wide and beautiful. Then Cambodia with its stunning temples and welcoming people. All three countries are very different.
I will be living quite close to Halong bay in teh mountains that appear to be the northern end of the geological strip that makes such great mountains, whether rising vertical from the ground or the sea. I am hoping to do Halong Bay during a long weekend or one of the many short holidays we get in term. I am planning to get a motorbike to travel around locally to see the places the bus doesnt go and then do Vientam Laos and Cambodia on the bike. Will see how that works out later
Bali and Thai islands if you are particularly looking for tourist catered holidays. otherwise Lombok and Gillis in Indo. OR Laos and Cambodia for less touristy but reasonable facilities. As well as Vietnam for beautiful beaches.
India..u wuld get snow , desert , nice beaches , historical places..all in one place..highly diversed..culture wise , food wise , people wise and natural scenes wise..
Beaches in Vietnam like : Phu Quoc Island, Con Dao island are incredible beautiful places
There are lots of beautiful places in Asia -- Asia is big!
In Southeast Asia, Philippines is a beautiful place if you want to enjoy beautiful beaches, enjoy the tropic, harvests and views, mountains, rolling hills, terraces, surfing, diving sites you name it..... wonderful people different culture compared to the rest
each Asian country is unique and on my travels so far I have enjoyed visiting each country. The countries I have visited so far are South Korea (Seoul and Jeju), Thailand (Bangkok and Chiangmai) , China (various places like Beijing and Suzhou, Hong Kong too), Indonesia (Bali). And of course, as a Malaysian I have visited various places in Malaysia like Kota Kinabalu and Penang. Also, now that I stay in Singapore, Singapore too! Each place has its own pros and cons.
Coxs bazaar the longest sand beach of the world in Bangladesh
Sundarban the largest mangrove forest of the world in Bangladesh
There are also three world heritage sites in Bangladesh
Almost 7000 rives creating a web throughout the country and also beautiful islands in the Bay of Bengals make Bangladesh a must visit country.
Amanpulo in Palawan, Philippines. Extremely beautiful island. You can't resist the beautiful water, sand and everything from that place.
