Doesn’t this place just reminds you of Greece? Fortune Island is a resort island with Grecian ‘ruins’ modelled after the acropolis of the Mediterranean country. The island is also home to an ancient shipwreck, which you can learn more about through their museum.

2. Hoi An, Vietnam

Hoi An is probably the most charming little historic town in Southeast Asia. The ancient town used to be an international trading port back in the 15th century, and you can see the mix of culture reflected on the old town’s unique architecture style. Do check out the local cuisine at Morning Glory restaurant when you’re there!

3. Ubud, Indonesia

Ubud is more than a place to just Eat, Pray, Love. This new favourite destination in Bali is quieter than Kuta, but has private villas that are more affordable than those in Seminyak. You can enjoy some lovely alone time amidst the beautiful rice fields, and even go for a ride on the famous Ubud jungle swing.

4. Koh Rong, Cambodia

Yes, this is Cambodia. The country has more than just the majestic Angkor Wat temple and ruins – it’s home to one of the world’s most beautiful islands. Koh Rong is located off the beach town, Sihanoukville, but you can get there easily via a ferry. It’s almost impossible to find another island that has clearer waters than Koh Rong’s.

5. Kanchanaburi, Thailand

Kanchanaburi is known for its quaint floating villas on the River Kwai. Each of these floating houses has a private sun deck, where couples can watch the sunrise and sunset at. You can enjoy the utmost privacy here as the villas can only be reached via the hotel’s private boat service.

6. Luang Prabang, Laos
