South Asia offers a wide array of fun excursions and tours, making it an excellent destination for touring. Here are some of the top 6 awesome Things To Do in South Asia;
Things To Do in South Asia:
Bali Free Diving, Indonesia
The best time to tour Bali for free diving is from April to October. As you enjoy the turquoise waters of the Bali beach, be sure to catch breathtaking views of ships from the WWII, amazing reefs as well as sunken statues. The beach also offers great views of the neighbouring Agung Mountain which is another amazing one of many Things To Do in South Asia!
Sundarbans Boat Trip in Bangladesh
Dipping into the waters for a boat ride is a great adventure and thrill at the Sundarbans. The mangrove forests around provide a serene and great taste of Bangladesh. The boat trip may take two to three days as you enter into the forests and you can eat and sleep on board. An all-inclusive tour sees you travel from Khulna and back, but the adventure doesn’t stop there as there is plenty more to explore on a holiday to Bangladesh.
Rock Climbing in Krabi, Thailand
Rock climbing is a once in a lifetime experience that you should try when you visit South Asia. Krabi in Thailand would definitely be a good choice, especially Railey and Tonsai which offer a variety of difficulties through the rock climbing course. It is a very interesting way to improve your upper body strength and learn something new too. After climbing the rocks, you can spend a few hours basking and chilling at a small crater on the top and gaze at the beautiful beaches of Railey before embarking on a trip back. Climbing is a must on our Things To Do in South Asia list!
Tiger’s Nest Monastery in Bhutan
The Tiger’s Nest Monastery in Bhutan is a Buddhist’s sacred site. The monastery has four temples for the monks that live in the area, though there are several tourist activities. To visit takes at least a full day with activities such as round-trip hikes, plus an exclusive tour around the monastery. The hiking takes about four to five hours with the tour taking at least 1 hour. So if you’d like to visit the monastery, plan to leave early. October to December are the best times that you can visit due to the cool and clear weather in Bhutan.
Spot Blue Whales in Sri Lanka
Blue whales are the largest mammals both on land and sea and are a rare sight so seeing them here is one of the most amazing Things To Do in South Asia. It is worth going on a trip to Sri Lanka just to see them. These fascinating creatures are most likely to be seen between February and March. The southern coast of Sri Lanka are the best regions to go for sightseeing with many of the Whale watching companies being located around the region. You can combine whale watching with a wildlife safari along the Yala National Park that provides water for the whales between the months of February to April. Here is some more information about what should be on your itinerary.
Kayaking and Cruising in the Halong Bay
Halong Bay is an excellent place for cruise lovers. What’s more, it offers a beautiful view of its wide landscape, from rivers to grottoes and caves. Apart from cruising, there are bamboo boat rides, swimming, and kayaking along the Bay. The Halong also cuts the list as one of the UNESCO’s world heritage sites. High peak seasons are between December and February, then June and July but the prices are usually high while accommodation is limited.
