    The oceans and seas around the Asian continent couldn’t be better for a relaxing cruise, if you want to fit in some island hopping into your holiday too. But as fun as it is to wander the high seas around Asia on a luxury boat, making your way into the continent on one of its many river can afford you some similarly unforgettable experiences.

    Many rivers on the vast Asian continent are so beautiful that they have become a thing of legends, and sailing on them for a couple of weeks will not only give you an eyefull of lovely landscapes, but it will allow you to learn a thing or two about the country’s culture as well. Here are some of the best river cruises in Asia for those who like to sail.

    Tours have their advantages, like less headaches when the time comes to look for accommodation, book travel tickets and make sure that you get safely to your destination and back.

    But independent travel also has its advantages, and it is getting more and more popular with travelers of all ages. You can stay at unusual and unusually nice hotels, or you can rough it, stay at a hostel, and mingle with locals – the beauty of independent travel is that you do exactly what you want, when you want.

    Of course, the cheapest the destination the better it is for the indie traveler, but the attractions and things you can do are also a huge factor. If you’re wondering which places are suited for your next indie expedition, here are some of the best independent travel destinations in the world.

    Southeast Asia is the ultimate proof that being in the same geographic area doesn’t mean that countries can’t be as different as apples and oranges. The countries of Southeast Asia might be related somewhat and often might share a common history, but ultimately they all come with their strikingly unique features.

    For a long time, they have been a haven for backpackers around the world, thanks to the seemingly neverending beaches, lush tropical climate, great cultural sights and experiences, as well as the very affordable prices. The huge number of islands and lands contained in these eleven countries offer limitless possibilities for intrepid travelers, and these 5 amazing attractions in Southeast Asia are only a small taster of what awaits you.

  • Things to do in Vang Vieng, Laos’s tourist gem

    Laos

    Laos

    Despite the increasing popularity of tourist destinations in Southeast Asia, Laos has remained one of those rare places where adventurous tourists can still find things to surprise them. Laos is quite possible one of the least beaten tracks in the southeastern corner of the continent, and one that attracts backpackers with promises of dramatic landscapes and a slow rhythm that allows you to appreciate life’s finer pleasures.

    The Laotian capital, Vientiane, is sleepy compared to the neon metropolises of Asia, and even so it is large compared to the other tourist hubs in the country. Tiny towns like Vang Vieng have everything that’s needed to make a traveler happy: stunning surrounding scenery, a gentle pace of life and friendly people. Here are some of the things to do in Vang Vieng, Laos’s tourist gem.

  • Top 5 secret attractions in Laos

    A typical view of Laos. Beautiful, hot and cultural

    There is a good reason why the Lao People’s Democratic Republic (Lao PDR) has been dubbed Lao: Please Don’t Rush. Laos is a very poor country, and severely underrated in comparison with its Asian neighbors like Thailand or Vietnam, but there are few other places on the planet where life is more relaxed and laid back than in Laos.

    This forgotten country has more natural wonders on one square kilometers than most countries have on their entire territory, and Laotian culture can only be described as enthralling. Most attractions in Laos are unknown to a lot of people (perhaps with the exception of Pha That Luang, the gilded stupa of Vientiane), and there are many many more attractions just waiting to be discovered. Here are the top 5 secret attractions in Laos that deserve a little love and attention.

  • The most beautiful rivers in the world

    Mekong River in Laos

    There has always been something about rivers that made them attractive to artists and travelers, and even people who just fancied a quiet walk along the meandering banks of a slowly flowing river.

    Rivers are usually only as beautiful as their surroundings, and a stretch of river that looks like a piece of paradise can quickly turn into a scene from an industrial wasteland. But  some rivers are regarded as universally, unequivocally beautiful, and it doesn’t take an artist to see that. So here are some of the most beautiful rivers in the world.

    Backpacking in summer is a great way to experience new and exciting places, especially if you are on a budget. For less money than what you would pay for an all-inclusive holiday, for example, you get to see more places, and (some say) even have a more authentic view of a foreign destination.
