“While only 7km tall and at its bikini line 500m wide, tiny Boracay has rapidly become the Philippines’ top tourist draw. The centre of the action is dreamy White Beach, a 4km, postcard-perfect stretch of sand lined from one end to the other with hotels, restaurants, bars, and dive shops now several blocks deep.” – Lonely Planet

“The Bund alongside Huangpu River once was the financial center of the Far East. It is considered the city’s symbol since the 1920s.

Now it is even more attractive as you can also see modern skyscrapers just opposite the Huangpu River.” – China Connection Tours

“The lake is not only special in her history. The water color of Hoan Kiem Lake is not commonly found in other lakes elsewhere in the country: greenish, with dark or light shade depending on the reflection of the sky. The lake is full of tortoise, which is second to none to be found among Vietnamese lakes. If you are lucky, you will catch sight of these giant animals rising out of water. And because tortoise is considered a sacred animal in Vietnam’s culture (along with dragon, phoenix and unicorn), Hoan Kiem Lake then become a holy place that nurtures tortoise.” – Vietnam Online

 

6. Khao San Road, Bangkok, Thailand

“Khao San Road – The popular book ‘The Beach’ famously described Khao San Road as “the centre of the backpacking universe”. Judging by the truth-seeking travellers who converge here to shop, exchange tales and prepare for their next stint on the backpacker trail, it’s a phrase that sums it up pretty much perfectly.” – Hotels.com
