Short Breaks

Visiting Asia doesn’t necessarily have to be too much of a time investment, as much of this continent is easily and quickly accessed with increasingly reasonable airfares. Short breaks of less than a week are on the up in Asia, as there is just so much to do, from vibrant cities to glorious beaches to fantastic adventure travel opportunities.

For city break weekends, Asia now rivals Europe in terms of variety: eat yourself through Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, sink into the decadent colonial architecture of Hanoi in Vietnam, or be dazzled by the bright lights and sparkling temples of Bangkok in Thailand. But the menu isn’t restricted to just cities, as travellers with limited time can still explore the ruins of Angkor in Cambodia, the elegant Luang Prabang in Laos or head to Boracay in The Philippines for a much-needed beach break.
