Puerto Princesa Underground River National Park, Philippines

Puerto Princesa Underground River National Park is truly a paradise for nature lovers because it is both a UNESCO heritage site and one of the new 7 natural wonders of the world. This national park owns an underground river over 8 km long, which is a popular daytime attraction for both locals and tourists. In addition, Puerto Princesa also has many ancient forests with all kinds of native Philippine trees and towering limestone mountains, which are typical for the geological type formed by water erosion.

Red Lotus Lake, Thailand

When it comes to Thai tourism, while Bangkok, Phuket and Chiang Mai always attract a huge number of international visitors, the northeastern region of the country is still a "mysterious gem". In particular, Red Lotus Lake's spectacular beauty is a destination that not many tourists know about. From December to February every year, the pink water lily blooms brilliantly all over the lake (although it is called Red Lotus Lake, mainly grows pink lilies), bringing the vivid colours of spring and becoming a perfect "hideaway" spot. In addition to the characteristic pink water lily, there are many species of water birds and countless fish species in the lake for visitors to explore.

Mount Kinabalu, Malaysia

Located in the north of the island of Borneo, the majestic Mount Kinabalu is famous for its height (4,095 m) and diverse endemic species that was recognized by UNESCO as a world heritage site in 2000. From afar, the mountains have breathtaking beauty full of attractions for tourists who love to explore, challenge their limits to reach the highest peak. No need to bring too many specialized climbing equipment, but the Kinabalu climb requires a licensed guide to accompany you throughout the journey.

Komodo, Indonesia

The Komodo Archipelago have more than 17,000 large and small islands, but the reputation of this place comes from the name Komodo - a rare dragon in the world. Named as Komodo dragon, but it is a large lizard, more than 3m in length. There are only four places in Indonesia where this animal lives, but Komodo is the destination that organizes many boat tours, as well as land tours that take the bravest visitors to see the dragon.
