It’s that time of year when you’re probably thinking about jetting off on your holidays. But are you looking for something different this year from your usual holiday destination? 

If you’re tired of Thailand and so over Osaka, this article will look at five alternative places to travel in the Far East and things to do while you are there. 

Alternative Far East holiday Destinations  – El Nido, Philippines 

El Nido offers the perfect environment for a beach getaway. A completely untouched tropical paradise with white sand beaches, cliffs, turquoise sea, and tropical trees can be found here. It is breathtakingly beautiful. 

Things to do: 

Alternative Far East holiday Destinations  – Okinawa, Japan 

A trip to Okinawa would take you straight to heaven. Not only is the food exquisite, but also the beauty of this Japanese Island. Okinawa, the only really subtropical territory in Japan, is a paradise where vibrant subtropical flowers grow all year round. 

It is one of Asia’s ideal summer holiday spots, with its beautiful semi-tropical, white sandy beaches and a beautifully warm turquoise ocean. 

Things to do: 


Alternative Far East holiday Destinations  – Macau, off mainland China 


Macau displays a fusion of cultural influences despite being a Portuguese territory until 1999. The “Las Vegas of Asia” moniker refers to the enormous casinos and shopping centres that line the Cotai Strip, which connects the islands of Taipa and Coloane. 

It’s no surprise that Macau’s casinos bring in more money from gambling than Las Vegas since you can play slots, craps, roulette, poker and live casino games there. 

Things to do: 

Take in the expansive city views from the Macau Tower. 

Alternative Far East holiday Destinations  – Paro, Bhutan 

A rich cultural heritage and spectacular natural beauty are all contained inside the lovely and colourful region of Paro. 

It sits on the banks of the Pa Chhu (Paro river), giving it an old-world charm which distinguishes it from many other tourist destinations. It is home to many of Bhutan’s oldest temples and monasteries. 

Things to do: 

Alternative Far East holiday Destinations  – Nha Trang, Vietnam 

Nha Trang, one of Vietnam’s top vacation spots in Asia, is perfect for a beach getaway with its long stretches of sandy beaches. With a ring of hills surrounding it and a wide crescent beach, it has a beautiful location and warm waters that make it a year-round favourite for scuba diving (although plans are afoot to cut back on diving). 

The numerous pubs and restaurants that make up this area’s nightlife add to its attractiveness. 

Things to do: 


Asia and the Far East are full of locations for a fantastic summer holiday, with many more beautiful beaches, vibrant cities, attractive settings, and natural wonders. All you need is the will to explore. 

So, get out of your comfort zone and explore a new part of this world for a holiday that you will be sure to remember for a long time. What are you waiting for?
