My South-East Asia bucket list

I have something with Asia. Some people have it with South-America, some with Africa, I have it with Asia. To be a bit more specific; South-East Asia. If I had the money and time (oh, no excuses!), I definitely bought a one-way ticket to Bangkok to travel further through South-East Asia. Sadly both are a bit rare for me nowadays, so for now it’s still a dream. But I’m trying to make it happen as soon as possible! So which Asian countries can you find on my bucket list?


1. Thailand
On number one is definitely Thailand! I really want to go to Thailand, because it looks like a paradise on earth. I’m saving money to travel to Thailand next summer. At the moment I sadly have no job, so the savings are a bit hard to continue. But I try my hardest to go this country next year, because I think it’s a country you have to visit while you’re young (in your early 20’s). It has such a great culture and amazing nature and they’re really welcoming to travelers. So Thailand is definitely on top of my bucket list.

2. Malaysia
I’ve been in Kuala Lumpur for a stop-over, but I don’t count stop-overs as a visit to a country. So in my opinion I never been to Malaysia and I would love to. Malaysia has something magical, because they have a big booming city and then next to it they have the amazing nature. Everybody who visited Malaysia is always so positive about the country! Some people I know went to Malaysia and they posted some amazing photo’s on Facebook, so yeah.. Now it’s on my bucket list.


3. Vietnam
Vietnam is a country with a lot of history. For my history exam in high school I had the Vietnam war as subject and that’s why I started to become interested in this country. Of course the horrible past is not the reason I want to visit Vietnam, but it were the first things I knew about this country. Now I know a lot more and I’m just really curious for this country. Multiple persons around me went already to Vietnam and they made me more curious for its culture.


4. Philippines
Actually I don’t know a lot about the Philippines. I know there are a lot f Islands and I know I hate boats, because of my travel sickness. But I have heard some great stories about this country and that the people are really welcoming. Which makes it easier and more fun to explorer the culture. The Philippines also has a lot of amazing nature and that’s why you can’t skip this country if you love nature.


5. Singapore
Singapore is a bit different from the other countries, of course because of the fact it’s a city-state. So nature wise I don’t think there’s a lot to discover, but Singapore is a total different experience than the other parts of South-East Asia. I’m teaching my pupils about the economic growth of this country, which is now considered wealthy, and I just want to see it by myself.

I also want to visit Indonesia at least once again. I wanted to travel around Indonesia last year, but because of the Ramadan I went to Australia. Nothing wrong with that, but I really want to explorer more of this country, because I think it’s an amazing country. So to dream on I made this South-East Asia bucket list, but what’s on your bucket list?
