South East Asia offers stunning beach resorts, a range of accommodation, value for money as well as both well-established and developing beaches, which are still being developed. The great aspect of South East Asia is its varied weather over the year. During rainy season in one area there is another area that is relatively dry. This allows one to visit all year round.
Thailand is undoubtedly the most famous of countries for a beach holidays with over 10 million tourists a year. Thailand is great in that there luxury and developed facilities as well as more basic accommodation available. Generally the best beaches are along the Andaman coast. This includes the famous resorts of Pukhet and Krabi. The Andaman coast stretches from Malaysia to Myanmar so for those looking for a remote location the beaches at Ngapali in Myanmar may be an alternative idea for a holiday. There are already luxury resorts developed but with no direct flights an added stop in Yangon is needed. The beaches in Malaysia offer luxury and easy access and are actually just a couple hours south of Pukhet.
For those travelling during the months of June, July and August the weather on this stretch of coast is far from ideal as it is rainy season. An alternative destination for those who still wish to travel to Thailand would be to visit the west coast as during these months Ko Samui and the surrounding Islands enjoy far less rain. These summer months also draw crowds to Bali Indonesia as the weather is dry and there are lots of activities to choose from. Indonesia however has over 15,000 Islands with some stunning beaches such as Sumba Island with its white sandy beaches. The Philippines is also an up and coming destination and has some of the most incredible beaches there are to offer including Cebu, Palawan and Tinaga Island. Although a little more remote to get to the travelling is certainly worth it.
One last place that should be mentioned is Cambodia. Beach holidays to Cambodia generally centre on the beach resort of Sihanoukville or Kep but these beaches don’t compare to those of the neighbouring South East Asian countries. For those looking for a great beach holiday in Cambodia you will need to take a ferry to experience the beaches at Koh Tonsay it is a two hour ferry ride from Sihanoukville and although has a great beach only has basic accommodation limiting ones options. Ultimate luxury can be found at Song Sa Private Island but for those on a mid-range budget Vietnam may offer the ideal solution.
Sout East Asia offers a mix of hotels and destination to meet every holiday requirement. Whether looking for direct flights, remote locations, ultimate luxury or local styled resorts.
