I spent the entire month of April visiting Asia for the first time. I was blown away by the entire experience! First of all, April was the perfect month to travel to Asia. The average temperature hovers around 26 Celsius or 79 Farenheit. The climate was amazing the entire time I was there. For this blog, I’ll focus on some great destinations in the lower half of the massive continent. Take my advice, you need to visit these places if you are lucky enough to visit Southeast Asia:
This was perhaps the most memorable stop during my trip there. This monument is breathtaking! Built all the way back in the 12th century, the Angkor Wat is home to the largest religious monument worldwide. Even though it was first constructed as the home of Khmer King Suryavarman, it is now recognized for its religious significance. It is the only temple on site to focus on religion.
Today, millions of tourists’ flock to this site, making it a must-see for anyone traveling to the area. A cool thing that I learned about was the tickets we purchased to visit the site. Almost half of the tickets sales are invested directly into repairs of the Angkor Wat, keeping the temple fresh and clean for all future tourists!
This was my favorite part of Thailand, by far! This scenic territory is filled with things to see and places to go. It is home to the Burma Railway, better known as Death Railway. It was a bridge originally built by WWII POWs. Close to the bridge, there is a museum and memorial that honors those who lost their lives in the war.
The area around the River Kwai is amazing as well. Premier restaurants surround the river – from gourmet foods to pizza shops. For those itching to explore, Kanchanaburi offers a variety of caves, waterfalls, and scenic forests. Without a doubt, you can spend a few adventure-filled days in this area.
