Top 5 / Asia

Online travel platform YouDiscover ranked 93 destinations across 11 countries according to factors such as tourist infrastructure, range of activities, cost and more. These are the top five contenders to add to your South Asia itinerary now.

 

Siem Reap

In Cambodia, Siem Reap is the place to go if you’re interested in seeing the magnificent ruins of Angkor. The stone ruins include Angkor Wat, which you’ll find on Cambodia’s flag and in many an Instagram post from the region. The area has lots of hotels and resorts to choose from, as tourism heavily supports Siem Reap’s economy.

 

Bangkok

The biggest and most populous city in Thailand, Bangkok is a popular tourism destination with its many historical sights and urban amenities. Visit royal palaces, temples and national museums, and enjoy shopping at both luxury boutiques and local markets.

 

Singapore

Small Singapore is young; it just celebrated its 50th birthday a few years ago. With a great airport, awesome food scene, beautiful public spaces and a great safety rating, Singapore is an easy pick for any globetrotter planning a trip to Southeast Asia.

 

Phnom Penh

The capital of Cambodia, Phnom Penh is also known as the Pearl of Asia. This populous city is a cultural center and offers lots of historical architecture and attractions, including French colonial buildings leftover from French colonization.

 

Da Nang

The fifth-largest city in Vietnam, Da Nang is highly urban and important for business, but also tourism. With multiple UNESCO World Heritage sites, picturesque natural settings, war history and cuisine, every traveler can find something to enjoy in Da Nang.

Secret Budget Stays in Rome

Celebrated as a rich, historical and cultural center, Rome attracts scores of visitors every year. However, the capital of Italy isn’t known for its cheap price tag and budget accommodations. Luxury accommodations and upscale boutique hotels are the norm, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find your own secret budget stays in and around the city. Here’s where to start your search.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

Kenwood Inn & Spa

My husband and I arrived to Kenwood Inn & Spa about an hour before check-in time and luckily our room was ready. The front desk attendant asked if we need assistance with our luggage, then escorted us to our room. Along the way, she pointed out the rooms past the lobby where the daily complimentary breakfast is served, as well as complimentary wine tastings. I enjoyed a glass of welcome Champagne as we made our way to the room.
